World’s smallest drone

It is the Hummingbird in form of Quadcoptern Drone. Axis Vidius was made in United States. The world’s smallest camera drone is so far unbeaten in terms of compactness.

Big drones with massive power are uninteresting for axis drones. Instead, the US company’s engineers have specialized on the development of mini drones. Latest achievement is the axis Vidius. The supposedly smallest camera drone of the world measures just 4, 3 x 4, 3 x 2, 5 cm and has a 420 p camera on board anyway. Drone come on market in late January for €88.

Control with controller, tablet or Smartphone

The control is flexible: either the pilot uses a supplied controller or his Smartphone or tablet. So he can make between the mini drone in a radius of 30 meters through the air. For no more than seven minutes. Then have the 150 mAh battery of Quadcopters for 20 minutes to recharge. The required USB cable supplies conveniently right axis drones. For flights at night engineers have added also an LED lighting system the Quadricopter.

The drone is also an app for Android and Apple smartphones. It shows pictures and videos of the camera during the flight. As long as there is a Wi-Fi connection. The pilot can share after landing directly with friends the digital memory. The app can be namely with social media platforms like Facebook, messengers and the email account.

One leaves the world of the Quadricopter, hobby photographers offer by the way some alternatives. About the 3D Pocket-Copter – an invention from Spanish engineers. The 19 cm-long mini drone has a 3D-capable HD camera on board, with the aerial photographs it can make height of up to 10 m.

Kameralose alternative: world smallest Quad-copter Aerius

In addition to the world’s smallest camera drone axis drones has yet a further record holder in the program: Aerius, the supposedly world’s smallest Quadricopter. The aircraft is 3 x 3 x 2 cm small and thus barely larger than a two-euro coin.

The Quadcopter has but no camera on board, but a lot on the box. Thanks to a gyroscopic stabilizer, he can complete wild maneuvers in the air at your fingertips, allowing him to act like an insect – about jerky altitude vary or perform somersaults and rolls. The 80 mAh battery is sufficient for a flight time of five to seven minutes, after that Aerius must fill up for 15 minutes power via a USB cable. Cost: just €32.
