Nano, or mini, drones are tiny quadcopters (helicopters with four wings) that offer a great way to get into remote control flyers as well as being tons of fun for kids. With low price-points, they can also be used for practicing training skills like takeoff, stunts and landing before you take to the skies with a pricier, more complicated drone. The controls of most nano drones are intuitive and easy to use, and they can withstand some knocks and scrapes from beginners’ errors. Since they can fit into the palm of your hand, they can be flown indoors where they will drive your house pet nuts.
