Overview of 10 most popular nano size drones

In the sea of various drone types that are available on the market these days, there is no doubt that people have a lot to choose from. Another very interesting drone type has been getting a lot of public exposure recently. Of course, I am talking about the miniature drones that are able to easily fit inside your pockets. Today, we’ll talk about best nano drones. These so-called nano drones are among the cheapest drones that you can get, but you will be surprised by their performance, especially when you take the fact that they are so small into consideration. I know I was astonished when I got my hands on one of them. The first thing that came to my mind was: How in the world did they manage to put so many functions in such a small piece of tech gadgetry. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the best (and smallest) drones that are currently available on the market.

8. NIHUI Mini Drone

nihui-mini-droneThis beautiful red and black drone is a proper champ in its division. For only $23.99 you are getting a great little drone with built in prop guards for extra safety. The Nihui Mini features headless mode that greatly improves your flying experience, especially if you are a beginner, because it follows the orientation of its controller and not the ”nose” of your drone. In addition to headless mode, this little guy also has one key return and 6 axis gyro system for improved flight control and stability. All things considered, the Nihui Mini is a great bargain and is bound to provide you with a ton of fun.

6. Quadpro Nc5

quadpro-nc5Quadpro is a fairly new drone manufacturer, but they sure as hell made a great nano drone. Their QuadPro Nc5 model has been getting a lot of positive reviews lately, and we just couldn’t go on with this list without including it. It has 2 flight modes, head mode and headless mode, which makes it quite suitable for beginners. In addition to that, it has the standard 6-axis gyro system and a small white joystick (not such a good quality to be honest) that operates on 2.4 Ghz frequency. With its flight range of up to 50 meters and around 7 minutes of flight time, this mini drone is quite a good choice if you don’t mind the poor build quality of its controller (you can always buy a third party one if you don’t have another one lying around already).

5. AUKEY Drone

aukey-droneThis simple looking black drone with silver / green propellers might just be your drone of choice if you are looking for a miniature one. It features 3 adjustable flying speeds and is able to do all sorts of flips with just few button presses. Needless to say, it is really lightweight and can easily fit into the palm of your hand. Luckily, its compact size does not prevent it from flying up to 5 minutes on a single charge and reaching around 25 meters away from its transmitter. All things considered, for just $30, this bad boy will provide you with more than enough fun!

4. Eachine E10C

eachine-e10cEachine is a well-known manufacturer in the drone industry. They stand behind numerous top quality drones, but needless to say is that their main focus are racing drones. Today though, we are not taking a closer look at one of those. Instead, we are going to take a look at their E10C model. We are talking about an amazingly small drone with colorful LED lights. The biggest trait of this drone is surely the fact that it has a camera. Yup, you read that correctly – this miniature drone has a 2MP built in camera capable of recording both still images and videos. The C in its name stands for Camera, and it will cost you around $11 extra. You can get the regular, no-cam version of this drone for $21.99, but let’s be real – it’s not nearly as cool as the C version!

3. Mokasi Pocket Drone

mokasi-pocket-droneThis beautiful small drone comes with an interesting design. It sports 6 propellers which is quite an unusual sight since we are used to 4 with most other drones on the market. As is the case with the next drone in this list, Mokasi drone also comes with a controller that is also used as a carrying case. Simply put the drone in the middle of its controller, slip it into your back pocket and you are good to go. When it comes to interesting features, this little guy has colorful LED lights along with the headless mode which comes as a great trait. With just 4.6oz, it takes up the spot of the most lightweight drone on this list.

2. MOTA Drone

mota-droneThis is among the most popular nano drones out there. This little guy was featured in well-known media such as the WIRED Magazine and even FOX News. People are praising it for its miniature size but great features that will make you love it. It’s really lightweight (which is to be expected from such a small drone) and features LED lights so you don’t lose it while flying around. Another great thing about this drone is that it comes with a great controller that serves as a carrying case as well. They both sport a clean white design which is going to be appealing not just to you but to your little ones as well. Keep in mind that it is only able to fly up to 5 minutes, but luckily, it only takes about 10-15 minutes to charge it up to 100% which means you’ll be ready for another flying session in no time at all.

1. Cheerson CX-10WD

cheerson-cx-10wdThe first drone that almost hits the $50 mark in this list, is actually an upgraded (drastically) version of Cheerson CX-10 mini drone. This model is manufactured by Cheerson and, oh boy, did they do a fine job with it. This little guy is packed with interesting features such as dedicated WiFi, iOS and Android support, 6-axis gyro, altitude hold, high density air pressure sensor and more. But still, the biggest selling point of this drone is surely its HD camera which is able to provide you with live FPV feed. This feature is rarely seen on so small drones. It is pretty much the main reason behind its price. Other than that, it is also important to add that its dedicated controller looks and feels great, and it can be used as a carrying case as well.

That’s it guys! We have come to the end of our Top 10 best nano drones list. As you could see for yourself, these little guys are usually equipped with some handy features. Even though they are small, they tend to be quite durable… and in some cases – quite pricey!
