Better Than The Average Drone

Unlike your average drone for recreational use, nano drones are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. They fly in a similar manner to other recreational drones, however, they are generally easier to operate and better for beginners. They are also a perfect choice for children who want to get into drone flying and parents who don’t want to spend a lot of money. The micro quadcopters are excellent for learning the basic drone-flying skills without worrying about causing significant damage to surrounding property or the drone itself.

While there is a wide range of nano drones on the market for recreational use, nano drones have been in development for use by the military and various entities for some time. The Black Hornet Nano was invented in Norway and is used by the Norwegian and British Armies.

Other nano drones include the Dragonfly Drone and the Hummingbird Drone. The Dragonfly Drone was used in 2007 at a protest in Washington D.C. It is a military surveillance drone that uses the physics of a dragonfly in order to hover and fly in all directions. The Hummingbird Drone is designed to look almost exactly like a hummingbird and flies in a similar manner. It is used by the military for surveillance as well. None of these three drones can be purchased by the general public.

However, the nano drones available for public use have a number of incredible capabilities and uses. Nano drones and their larger counterparts are poised to be the next big thing in photography with many of them being equipped with high-powered cameras. However, the FAA currently restricts drones being used to make money, so professional photographers will have to wait on that front.

Drone hobbyists are enjoying using nano drones and the large recreational drones for first-person view(FPV). These drones are equipped with a camera and beam a video to a pair of goggles.

One big advantage to nano drones is that if they are under nine ounces in weight, they don’t have to be registered with the FAA. Their small size and shorter flight times allow you to get the experience of flying a drone without putting a damper on your fun with government regulations.

Flight With A Purpose


Go to top.

You’re not going to break the bank buying a nano drone no matter what you choose, but there are a few things you should think about before you make your purchase.

First, are you buying for fun or practice? If you just want a cheap drone to fly for fun, nearly any nano drone will do. However, if you are a beginner and in need of practice, before you move onto the more expensive models, you will want to pick one with all of the capabilities of the bigger drone you intend to buy.

Second, do you want to take photos and videos? If you are interested in recording your flights, you will need to purchase a nano drone with a camera. Because it is a nano drone, you will have a low probability of damage in the event of a crash, and you can have all the advantages of a photo and video capable drone without the high price tag.

Third, consider the flight time. Nano drones have small batteries and generally charge quickly. Unfortunately, this means that they have short flight times. If you are purchasing a nano drone, you are likely looking at no more than ten minutes of maximum flight time on the best models.

Finally, consider whether you want to fly your drone indoors or outdoors. The mini quadcopters are generally best for outdoor flight because they offer more stability. If you plan to purchase a nano drone that is not a quadcopter, understand that it will likely not fly well in anything stronger than a light breeze. Regardless of the nano drone you choose, practice indoors before venturing outside.

A Brief History of the Nano Drone


Go to top.

The most advanced nano drones in existence today have been designed for military use by several different countries. However, the nano drones designed for recreational use have been patterned after the designs of their larger counterparts. They operate in a similar manner, and many of them share all of the same features as an average-sized drone. The biggest advantages to these nano drones are that they are more affordable, sustain less damage, and are not subject to FAA regulations as long as they weigh under nine ounces.

History tells us that the first drones were actually hot air balloons that were used to drop explosives on enemies during the American Civil War. Archibald M. Low created “Aerial Target” in 1916 as the first attempt at an actual unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

Germany and the Nazis began developing a UAV program during World War II and unleashed the formidable V-1 upon the world. This prompted the United States to begin its own UAV program to use for more than just pilot and combat training tools.

The best thing about UAVs is that they completely eliminate the need for an onboard pilot, but many of those used in the military have the same combat and surveillance capabilities as a manned aircraft.

Military nano drones such as the Black Hornet Nano and Hummingbird Nano are used to survey enemy territories and areas in which dangers might go otherwise unseen. They provide a significant tactical advantage and prevent a significant number of casualties.


#10.SKEYE Nano 2 FPV Selfie Drone With HD Camera - Worlds Smallest Quadcopter WiFi or Joystick Controlled with iOS Android - RTF Technology


Very small drone with a camera. Easy to control with the controller and the phone. There is an option on the app to switch control from the phone to the controller which I like. Fly time on a single charge is about 10 - 15 minutes. Charge time is about 25 - 30 minutes. I really like that it has a camera which allows me to take pictures and capture video.

#9.Cheerson CX-10 Mini 2.4G 4CH 6 Axis LED RC Quadcopter Toy Drone


Let me first tell you this little guy does a lot many stunts even in this size and price. This is, in fact, the best smallest drone I have ever owned. Bought in Orange color because of its least price as I was not very particular about getting a specific color. In this price, it does flip and you can set 3 modes and you can set it as you keep practicing. It has a good control distance of around 30-40 meters which is not bad.

#8.Kingtoys@ Nano Hexacopter Mini Drone 2.4g 4ch 6 Axis Gyro Rc Quadcopter Mini UFO Rc Helicopter Explore 3d Rollover


Great little indoor drone! Perfect practice device prior to obtaining a much bigger drone! Who wants a pricey simulator when you can practice on one of these! If you crash it no big deal just replace the propeller and you'll be good to go! 4/5 for me though, I hoped for more spare propellers within the contents it came with. Also, it could use some sort of protective storage decide when not in use. Overall a good little hexacopter!

#6.Syma X12 Nano 6-Axis Gyro RC Quadcopter Mini Drone RTF UFO Aircraft, Color Green


This small little quad is a blast. I'm about as novice as you can get on these. A friend has a couple of the small heli's I have played with but never "owned" a flyer of any kind till now. It was easy to set up. Easy to fine tune. As requested in the directions it needed to be reset before the first flight but after that it was smooth. I have had a few crashes and nothing has broken yet (and I'm on concrete and tile floors). I have not tried any of the tricks this does as I'm still learning the basics and getting a feel for it. I will admit I have a really nice place to practice as my garage is pretty large with tall ceilings.

#4.EACHINE E010 Mini UFO Quadcopter Drone 2.4G 4CH 6 Axis Headless Mode Remote Control Nano Quadcopter RTF Mode 2 (Red)


Wow This is a great little quad. It is very durable, I have lost count of how many times I've hit the walls lol. I am new to drones but this one is very manageable for a beginner like me. It has some zip to it and it will go, the response is almost immediate, thus the hitting the walls. I have gotten pretty good with it now and can do flips with it. It does have one button flip and headless mode, but I prefer to have full control and not use headless.

#2.BLADE Nano QX RTF Quadcopter


The tiny Nano QX is RC flying fun you can take with you everywhere. The Nano QX weighs little more than half an ounce and is small enough to fly in spaces no bigger than an office cubicle. Never flown a quad-copter before? No problem. The Nano QX uses the SAFE technology system with sophisticated flight control software to keep itself stable in a hover while instability mode. If you get in trouble, just let go of the sticks. The SAFE technology system will bring the Nano QX back to a hover all by itself.

#1.Holy Stone HS170 Predator Mini RC Helicopter Drone 2.4Ghz 6-Axis Gyro 4 Channels Quadcopter Good Choice for Drone Training


Great done for the price. My 9 yr old saved up his chore money to buy it. It is fairly easy to fly and he caught on fast. He took it outside in advanced mode and it is really fast. The range is pretty awesome. There is a process for pairing remote to the drone each time you use it that is slightly cumbersome but not a big deal once you get to know it.
