Drones have become a part of our lives, especially with the film-making fraternity using it to shoot films and other similar stuff. People also maintain drones as a hobby, flying them in their free-time. However, drones are considerably expensive, especially the ones that have a camera attached to them. And, they are pretty big, which eventually require you to have a license.

Android Central Digital Offers are selling a drone for $30 that is as small as your palm, thus eliminating the need for any flying license. This quadcopter's four blades allow it to zip around in any direction in any direction and the LEDs allow for a night flight, which means you know where your drone has landed in the grass. The 0.3MP camera mounted on the drone can take video and still photos, and the maker even claims that it takes less than 30 minutes to fully charge the battery.

To be honest, a drone of that size is no use for filming anything, especially with a small-resolution camera. It would be good enough as a summer play toy, especially for kids and for those who fancy owning a drone on a budget.
