Clumsy people who dream of drone ownership, the M8 mini drone is here to make your dreams come true. Not only is this little quadcopter small, nimble, and light enough to throw in a bag for impromptu flights and photo ops, it's also built into a crash-resistant cube cage, so even your steep learning curve is covered.

And if you still manage to destroy your Rabing M8 after a few uses? Check out the price. Not a bad loss for a drone with such high ratings.

Like most of its kind, the M8 mini has 360-degree flip and headless mode, plus a one-key return function. Its maker says a 6-axis gyro and pneumatic positions will keep the drone stable during flight and hovering, and while you make use of its 720p camera.

M8 mini drone ownership is recommended for ages 14 and up, so if you're looking for a gift for a teen, check the cube cage quad out.

Note: In case your cat asks or seems suspicious, the M8 has put together some documentation (see image gallery above) that will assure him it is a drone, not a radiator.
