Get this tiny drone on sale for less than $60

Mashable

Over the past few years, drones have become the "it" gadget -- and for good reason. "Kids" (and kids at heart) love to steer a high-tech hovercraft, while photographers can capture selfies and breath-taking aerial shots. The only problem is that most drones are overpriced and unnecessarily large. If you're trying to keep the fact that you still play with toys under wraps, carrying around a giant $500 drone is probably not the best look. That's where SKEYE's Mini Drone comes in for the save.


The best drones you can get for under $200

There isn't just one feature to focus on when it comes to the DROCON U818 -- it's got a little bit of everything. No matter which of this drone's functions you put under the spotlight, you'll find something worthwhile. The footage quality and operational range both deliver high-quality results. It has a good FPV view, streams video in real-time, and it's super easy to learn with. The DROCON U818 takes a little bit from some of the best budget drones, and combines them into one machine.


The best way to get a gift you'll really like is to buy it yourself. Case in point: This drone.

Just to let you know, if you buy something featured here, Mashable might earn an affiliate commission. While the most commonly used drones are smaller than your average aircraft, they're not exactly safe for work. After all, they're meant to soar through the skies, not careen around your coworkers' cubicles. But if you really want to combat office boredom with some sick piloting skills, the tiny SKEYE Pico Drone is a great choice that probably won't get you escorted out of the building. This stealth quadcopter can take off from the tip of your finger, and flip, zip, and dive nimbly through the air.
