I simply could not resist.

Yes, I already have several nano sized quads. However, thanks to Harbor Freight's frequent 20% discount offers, I was able to score their new Pocket Air Drone for well under twenty bucks.

It's an RTF - naturally - in the mold of such predecessors as the Cheerson CX-10.

And boy, is this thing fun. If one's local hobby shop doesn't stock nano quads for these strange times of isolation, I can't recommend this highly enough. It's not only a kick to fly, it's downright fast. It's just the thing for blasting about the living room for practically pocket change. Three control levels, automatic flips, spare props, what more can one ask?

Well, a slightly less sensitive throttle control might be nice. Other than that, not much else.

I'm reminded of a $20 toy helicopter with IR control I bought at a San Diego convenience store as a blog subject. Fun but difficult to fly and it eventually fell apart. I got my money's worth for sure.

That same twenty bucks nets a really nice little machine complete with Harbor Freight's 90-day guarantee.

It might be time to dust off some of those other nano quads of mine, but for now, I plan to put a lot of flights on this thing.
