Just how much smaller can camera drones get, while still being able to record high-quality videos? The SKEYE nano drone seems to have been built as an answer to that challenge.
Nano drones such as this one represent the easiest way to get started with flying remote-controlled toys. SKEYE, which is available at a discounted price in our store, Walyou Deals, combines small dimensions with many entertaining features. As a consequence, not only kids, but also grown-ups will appreciate just how easy it is to control this drone.
Once you turn the drone on, all you need to do is throw it in the air. The throw-to-fly functionality definitely isn’t something you see in every device of this kind, and it’s only one of the many features that set SKEYE apart from other drones.
Flying it really couldn’t have been easier! The 3 flight levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) make SKEYE a drone that’s adequate for anyone, no matter how much (or how little) experience they have. In theory, you could give this to kids and see them flying it in no time, but this might not be the best toy for the young ones.
The advanced 6-axis flight control system, combined with the adjustable gyro sensitivity make the SKEYE very easy to fly. The low weight (only .49 ounces), and the small dimensions (1.57″L x 1.57″W x 0.87″H) surely contribute to that, too.
SKEYE can record video at 640×480, which is by no means a stellar resolution. On a 4K TV it will look extremely pixelated, and even on a 1080p one it won’t look that good, but on phones the video will seem rather decent. All photos and video are stored on the included 2GB microSD card, so make sure you back up the files from time to time, in order to prevent the card from getting full.
One of the main concerns people have when considering buying a drone is the battery life of the toy. The SKEYE nano camera drone features a built-in 3.7V 120mAh battery that keeps it in the air for 3 to 4 minutes. A full charge takes 30 minutes, so if you have a power bank with you, you can enjoy multiple flight sessions without having to return home. As for the controller, it requires 2 AAA batteries to function, but since these are not included in the package, you’ll have to provide your own.
For the next couple of days, you can find the SKEYE nano camera drone at Walyou Deals for $49.99, 27% off the regular price. If you’re just getting started with drones and aerial photography, this is definitely one of the best options for getting the hang of it before moving on to professional UAVs.
