There is a strange trend going on with drones these days. Drones are getting larger…and smaller. You have a company like Ehang which was showing off at CES2017 this huge drone.
Then you have TRNDLabs, which has developed the SKEYE Nano 2 FPV Drone – the world’s smallest camera drone. At just 4 cm wide and a weight of a mere 17 grams (.59 ounces), the Nano 2 is getting closer to Fantastic Voyage territory.
Can such a tiny drone really shoot HD video and stream it back to your phone? There was only one way to find out, real world flight testing.

The Only Problem With a Tiny Drone…A Tiny Battery
We loved everything about the SKEYE Nano 2 FPV Drone…except the battery. We were lucky to get 3-5 minutes when flying the drone. It all makes sense, you have a tiny drone, creating a WiFi network, streaming video, spinning 4 propellors…there is only so much power you can get out of a 17 gram drone. Still, we wish there were batteries that you could easily swap out, then you could take a few charged up spares with you.
As long as the simple battery life is not to trade the circuit breaker, the SKEYE Nano 2 unmanned aircraft is a very impressive and fun little UAV flight. We love, you can use your phone or include the flight controller.
The SKEYE Nano 2 unmanned aircraft is a good choice if you are a super-market unmanned aerial vehicle.
