Flying the World’s Smallest Camera Drone

I have a habit of collecting specialized skills, and one of the latest I’ve wanted to absorb is getting a pilot’s license, and I’m sure one day I will get it, but for now I really enjoy flying things, much smaller things for sure, but things none the less. Luckily, these small flying things are usually built take a fair amount of punishment, because there is quite a big learning curve.

Bring in the Cheerson CX-10C. What a fun little quadcopter!

To begin, this plucky little drone is considered “The smallest aerial vehicle in the history“.  As you can guess by the  “Engrish”, it’s made in China, but don’t that put you off – this little guy has filming capabilities (albeit only 0.3 megapixel, but still, what do you expect from a tiny, and fairly cheap gizmo?), and can do almost anything the “big boys” can do, including flips and turns.

Luckily for me though, it came with extra propeller blades.

It takes about 15 minutes to charge, and you get about 5 minutes of fly time. I usually spend those 15 minutes imagining what acrobatics I’ll do when it’s charged, and invariably spend my 5 minutes flying it into walls and couches.

This is fun toy, and I’d be tempted to convince a friend to get one so we could have aerial wars! You can get your CX-10C here!
