Wallet copter


From the one born every minute department.

Axis Drones have trademarked their name whilst claiming the work of clever Chinese fellows as their own.

Like many others I already have one of these palmtop drones. Its amazing I really enjoy flying it and its a great first quadcopter. Its a Cheerson CX10. It points to the sub 1kg RPAS future better than most platforms out there. I’m willing to bet there are industry professionals also mucking about with them with half an eye on real world uses.

The claims made by Axis Drones very much reflect the state of the current drone land grab.

Every other press release adds the word FIRST (insert technology that first flew more than 10 years ago), daily folks push out great back of a fag packet business plans with their heads in the clouds.

Looks familiar the sUAS News worlds smallest drone!

Some feet on the floor common sense needs to be applied. The word Exponential is being applied all over the place and its just not true.

Buyer beware has never been more appropriate.

Have a very clear idea of the end result your company requires before making the leap into the unmanned space.

Can the drone maker demonstrate that their platform really can do what they say.

How much more money and time is required to make a useful end product.

If you are starting your own small business is there a clear legal route for you to start making money.

Axis Drones™ of Rochester, NY (a division of Morrison Innovations) is proud to introduce the Wallet Drone™ – World’s Smallest Quadcopter™ – a drone so small it fits INSIDE the wallet sized controller, which fits perfectly inside your pocket!

We have designed the smallest, most compact quadcopter and controller that will allow you to have fun and practice full flight mechanics everywhere you go!

  • We asked what you wanted to see in a drone and you told us you wanted a drone that you could take anywhere-one that didn’t require a bulky carrying case
  • You also  indicated a desire to be able to charge the drone on the go

The Wallet Drone combines both ideas into one design: a compact controller that docks the World’s Smallest Quadcopter™ inside of its case and charges the drone without the need for wires or access to a USB port.

With the Wallet Drone, you can enjoy full quadcopter flight anywhere you go: both indoors and outdoors-at the office, in the park, in your dorm and beyond!

The Wallet Drone is designed to be so small and lightweight that you can simply place it in your pocket, purse, backpack (anywhere a wallet would fit), making it ideal for everyday fun and practice!
