SKEYE Nano Drone

By: on January 13, 2015

Awww, Mama and Papa Drone made a baby. I wonder how that worked. Gimbal attachments, perhaps? The half-ounce SKEYE Nano Drone is a tiny flying machine primed for airborne stunts and endless photo posts on Facebook. Only 3 days old, and my little SKEYE has already mastered his figure 8s and pooping while flying over the toilet!

Sophisticated circuitry, piezoelectric gyros, and accelerometers contribute to the Nano Drone's superior stability and maneuverability, and ready-to-fly technology, plus beginner, advanced, and expert modes contribute to the ability of any enthusiastic aviator to fly it. With 1.57" x 1.57" x 0.87" dimensions, SKEYE is also small enough to take and use pretty much anywhere.

The drone features a 6-axis flight control system with adjustable gyro sensitivity and LED lights for flights after dark. Flight time is 7 to 8 minutes with a range of up to 50m. SKEYE packages include the drone, a 4-channel 2.4Ghz transmitter, a USB charging cable, a user's manual, and 4 x spare rotors. Get yours for 40% off from Dude Exclusives for a limited time.
