It’s getting easier and easier to take part in the joy of drone flying. So neither skill nor price should prevent anyone who wants to take to the skies from doing so.

For proof, look no further than the SKEYE Nano 2, which might be the world’s smallest drone.

It fits squarely in the palm of the hand, but it’s packed with features usually reserved for its larger cousins. So you get a built-in WiFi camera that streams real-time aerial view straight to your smartphone. Additionally, the adjustable gyro sensitivity and 6-axis flight control system make this drone easy to fly for beginners and seasoned pilots alike. Automatic maneuvers and flips mean you can pull Top Gun worthy moves right out of the box. And onboard LED lights make night flights easy, indoors or out.

    These little tiny drones are very cool, but virtually impossible to fly. I bought one, charged it up, it took off, and despite pushing every button and joystick on the remote, the thing never changed course one bit, the buttons and joysticks had no effect on its flight path at all. It sailed directly across the room towards the corner of the kitchen, where it hit the ceiling in the very upper corner and dropped down into the crack behind the upper kitchen cabinets, rattling around as it dropped to the bottom, never to be seen again. It is still back there, that 20-second maiden flight being my entire user experience. I threw the controller right into the trash and haven’t thought about owning another drone since.

      Hahaha! I’m sorry for laughing but it really is out of empathy for your pain. I must concur I tried one of the tiny drones a few years ago and had a similar experience. Mine was outside, however. It shot up in the air with a mind of it’s own over one neighbor’s roof across the street and into another’s back yard. That was the last I saw of it and threw the controller in the trash.
      I’ve since purchased a little pricier drone that has GPS and auto hover. That drone has been a much more satisfying experience.

      I’m sorry to hear of yours. Hopefully one day you can find one that will give you the thrill you originally expected!
