MiniDrone Rolling Spi­der Smaller drone, smaller fun

3 Tak­ing the quad-ro­tor flight of the AR Drone 2.0 and shrink­ing down the size, price and bat­tery life, this is a neat idea with a few ex­e­cu­tion nig­gles. While its size means it can be used in­doors, its nippy speed means you’ll need a de­cent amount of space to pre­vent crashes – es­pe­cially if you're an in­ex­pe­ri­enced pi­lot. The wheels are an in­ter­est­ing ad­di­tion – if you’re re­ally skilled, you can even use them in tan­dem with the ro­tors to ma­noeu­vre up a wall and along the ceil­ing – but flight re­mains the cen­tral allure here, even if it’s not as en­joy­able as its big brother.
