BuzzBee Nano Drone – The World’s Smallest Quadcopter
There are lots of drones on the market now. Some soar to the heavens and are the size of a small aircraft, some carry cameras that can see for miles, some are used by police and the military to protect us and some are just there for the sake of it. But this fella can claim something truly marvellous…
BuzzBee has the honour of being the smallest Quadcopter drone in the world. This means you can use it easily indoors or outdoors (with caution), you can fit him in your pocket or bag and you can let the little fellas take a turn too. BuzzBee is very unlikely to fly through somebodies windows or damage your property, or that of your neighbours for that matter. The only thing that needs to fear BuzzBee is boredom… and perhaps small insects.
Weighing a feather-like 7g and measuring just 30mm across (yes, that’s right), BuzzBee gives you the ability to enjoy drone flight on a miniature scale. The worlds smallest drone costs £24.99 from here.
