Quadcopters and drones have taken over in a huge way and each month a range of new and improved drones hit the market. But while companies like Parrot and DJI are creating quadcopters that are big in size and features, others like Axis Drones are going in a different direction — creating drones that are smaller!
like Axis Drones’ newest quadcopter is called Aerius and it being touted as the smallest quadcopter in the world. It measures just 3 cm in length and width and is 2 cm tall, making it just a tiny bit bigger than a quarter.
But don’t be fooled by its tiny size, the Aerius drone has some great features and specs. Features included are almost at par with some bigger quadcopters, and you can find intelligent orientation control, adjustable flight control sensitivity, LED lights, 6-axis gyroscopic stabilization and a number of pre-programmed aerial tricks that can be executed by pushing a button.
