mini drone

Folks looking to pick up something different this holiday season for that special someone, or even themselves, may want to check out the SKEYE Nano Drone. The remote control quadcopter is small enough that it can be flown almost anywhere, and right now deal site StackSocial is offering it at a steep discount.

UPDATE: You can get this mini drone for even cheaper from Amazon.

Drones have become increasingly popular in recent years, and are guaranteed to be a hot-ticket item this holiday season. The SKEYE differs itself from the rest of the pack with its size and agility. It measures just 1.57×1.57 inches and utilizes a 6-axis flight control System, making it perfect for performing stunts.

Here’s a rundown of the SKEYE’s features:

  • RTF (Ready to Fly) Technology
  • 6-Axis Flight Control System w/ Adjustable Gyro Sensitivity
  • LED Lights for Night Flights
  • 3-Level Adjustable Controller Sensitivity: Beginner, Mid-Level, Expert
  • Frequency: 2.4GHz
  • Channels: 4
  • Battery: 3.7V 100mAh
  • Flight time: ~7-8 minutes
  • Charging time: 30 minutes

And here’s a clip showing the drone in action:

Included in the box are the Nano Drone, remote control, USB charging cable, 4 spare rotors, and the user manual. It’s worth noting the remote requires two AAA batteries, which are not included, and a 90-day manufacturers warranty. Shipping is free, and the site is guaranteeing it’ll arrive before Christmas.

Again, the SKEYE normally retails for $60, but if you head on over to StackSocial right now, you can pick it up for just $34.99—nearly half off. But hurry, the offer ends Saturday, November 29. (The promotion is open to several countries, which are listed on the site, but shipping times will obviously vary by area.)

UPDATE: You can get this mini drone for even cheaper from Amazon.

    Really? 30 min charge for 7-8 minutes of use? Wtp?

      This reminds me of the old and expensive (because they were expensive back then) electric shavers.
      It took the thing 8 hours to fully charge and you could only use it for around 45~50 minutes. Good ol’ times.

    • they need to work on some form of in-flight charging. Motion, sunlight… something.

      unfortunately this is kind of standard for rc toys about this size, mostly because there is 4 rotors, they are small and therefore they can’t sustain heavy components, which in this case the battery haves to be small and very light and is unable to hold to much power due to it’s size.

  • This looks like Cheerson – CX-10. Which is like $15 🙂
