If you are looking into getting a nano drone, want something that does more than just fly in a straight line but don’t want to spend a fortune then the Axis Nano is a great place to start. The chances are when you first start out that you will have a few bumps which is why this model is a great place to start. It has a blade guard and even landing skids to ensure those not so perfect landings still result in your drone being fully functional while you learn. The ceiling, floor and even walls around you will not cause damage to the drone making it easy enough to learn to fly inside to get the hang of it and outside when you feel ready.
The Axis Nano boasts a calibration system with three speeds which is great for getting the hang of taking off without flying into nearby options. When you are ready to change directions you can use the medium speed while you get used to the controls and then switch to high speed as soon as you feel ready.
The more expensive drones tend to have equipment such as high resolution cameras that can be damaged under the control of a learner, just like a new car. The Axis Nano is still small but still robust enough to endure a learners mistakes. It’s a great way to get used to the controls and then when you are ready you can move up to a drone that is more powerful and has more functions, not to say that this model doesn’t come with a whole host of tricks and specifications to keep you busy while you are learning.
Once you have got the hang of flying the Axis Nano at all speeds, you can then move onto the tricks. It is able to do a full 360 degree flip and can travel up to 150 feet from the control. It only takes 20 minutes to charge and from this can be in flight for up to 7 minutes. Being so small it can easily be transported wherever you go for fun in the park, on holiday or on a lunch break and then packed away in just a few seconds.
The 4 channel remote control will stop you conflicting with other flyers so that the signal doesn’t get confused and the LED lights allow you to continue with your fun even when lighting is poor or of course nonexistent in the evening. It only weighs 0.5 ounces making it easy to transport and it’s total size including guards is 3.5 x 1 inches. The blades on impact come apart, but that it better than having them break and having to pay for replacements. They can be easily put back onto the Axis Nano so no expertise necessary. The landing ski’s are a way for beginners to land without becoming entangled in the material below whether grass, carpet or other debris and as they cover the blades reduce the risk of it becoming damaged. The Axis Nano drone can be purchased for as little as $40, little outlay for hours of fun!
