I thought the Cheerson CX10 was about far as the industry would go in the direction of small.  But no sooner than having that thought Cheerson introduced the CX10-A, which is a CX10 with headless mode (and four nicer colors).  So I bought one of these tiny quads, which happen to be fun to play around with, once again believing this was for sure as far as the industry would go in terms of small -- and inexpensive ($20 & free shipping @ Amazon).

But the Chinese are relentless when they know they have a good thing and they have just released the FQ777 Pocket Drone, which is a nano-quad that comes in a neat, pocket-size, plastic carrying case -- which also happens to be the controller, and which also contains some spare parts and a charging cable! http://www.shareasale.com/r.cf.....HwodwTkF8w

And if that isn't enough it's only sixteen bucks, with free shipping.   So I will never again make the mistake of thinking it can't get any smaller, or better, or less expensive than this.  All I'm willing to predict now is a ban on these little pocket drones in schools come September.

 

PS:  I've just learned the CX10-A (and presumably all these little drones) is much easier to control when fitted with a protective frame.  These frames, which snap right on, also prevent the little quads from landing upside down when they crash and they do prevent their props from bending or being knocked off.

Oh yes, in fact buying a domain name for pocket drones to review, will do one on Syma site, as still my passion Syma and believe in the next year from what I believe Syma is going to get into the world of fpv helis and quads, but for a beginner Syma beats all.

Quads are a much harder fly on orientation for a beginner, but many years ago spent hundreds on budget helis, this hobby excites me more everyday, even my 6 year old Grandson tries to fly and loves the control of the 107 heli..yes excited the way this hobby is going, thank you for your posts
