Unboxing and a short test flight of the new mini quad from ThiEYE who are better known for action cameras. Quite a clever little quad and very stable for a small drone. Barometric sensor holds altitude well and an optical flow sensor looks at the ground and maintains horizontal position surprisingly well.

It records 1080 30 fps to an onboard microcard. (not supplied) . Quality was OK but not stunning. and it streams FPV to your smart phone. You need a smart phone as control is by wifi.

I'm not a great fan of phone app wifi control, much prefer a proper controller but it was a fun gadget and would be good to slip into the car or suitcase for a holiday. You can buy an optional external charger and spare batteries. Flight time about 8 minutes. About £60 with voucher code or Black Friday deals.
