A Tiny RC Drone That Almost Fits In A Pocket

Don't have $US300 to spend on Parrot's AR Drone that you'll most likely crash into a wall five minutes after take off? Consider Brando's minuscule alternative. You'll be sacrificing onboard video cameras and the ability to pilot it with your iPhone, but you'll be saving yourself $US250.

The petite craft comes with a dual stick controller that's downright gigantic in comparison — allowing you to pilot the drone in the smallest of spaces and even perform mid-air somersaults at the push of a button. And like with all of these flying toys the battery is kept small and light so the quadrotor can get off the ground, limiting its flight time to 10 or so minutes.

But this kit comes with a second backup battery and a charger that can top off both at once. That alone could be worth the $US50 price of admission since it will keep you flying — and crashing — all day long.
