Zano Nano Drone

This palm-sized quadcopter from the Torquing Group (CES booth 25621), which is slated to ship in June 2015, weighs just 1.94 oz and features a 5 megapixel HD video camera for personal photography and HD video capturing. And it’s all controllable via smartphone or tablet (iOS or Android) by simply tilting your control device in the direction you want the Zano to fly. The Zano can fly for about 10-15 minutes and features USB charging. The battery is removable, so if you carry multiple batteries, you can get extended flight time. It has software that ensures Zano will avoid obstacles, return to your mobile device if it feels its strayed too far, is losing signal, or is running low on battery. Learn more about the Zano drone.
