Drones are cool, but they are also very expensive. If you just want to use one as a toy or just something to mess around with then you might not want to pay that price.

In that use case, you might want to pick up something called a nano drone instead.

They are cheaper and smaller but come with less features at a lower price. We have lined up what we think are the best of these nano drones for the year of 2017, check them out below.

SKEYE Nano Drone

The SKEYE Nano Drone is pretty cool, featuring a 0.3MP camera on the front that will allow you to record footage from up to 160 feet away for 3-4 minutes, not amazing features, but a decent set of specs to mess around with in .a small form-factor.


Syma X5C

The Syma X5C has a slightly better camera at 2MP, but also at a smaller price tag, the quadrocopter is a great option to start droning with.


GP – NextX F8

The NextX F8 claims to be the world’s smallest quad, with a 2.4G 4CH 6-axis gyro system and a durable build that makes it the perfect on-the-go nano drone.


Syma X12

Syma’s X12 is their other nano drone, featuring a built-in 6-axis gyro, a modular design that makes it easy to maintain, and a wind-resistant body that makes it great for indoor and outdoor flight.


SKEYE Pico Drone

The SKEYE Pico Drone also claims to be the world’s smallest nano drone, but it actually probably is at just 2.2 x 2.2 and weighing only 7 grams.
