When learning to fly remotely controlled aircraft, it’s often best to start small. At under two inches a side, the CX-10 Mini Drone is about as small as drones come. Smaller than a graham cracker square, it’s a great introductory tool for exploring the very basics of how to fly quadcopters.
Because of its tiny size, it’s recommended as an indoor tool, since even the lightest gusts of wind can send it off course. The bright orange-and-white body could be helpful when hunting for a lost drone at night, but it’s hardly a threat to privacy. Highly capable and tiny camera drones do exist, like the British Black Hornet, but those are expensive pieces of military equipment, running about $125,000 apiece, or more than 7,500 times the price of this guy.
