Daily Deal: SKEYE Nano 2 Drone
from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept
The SKEYE Nano 2 may be small, but this pint-sized drone packs a punch. Engineered with 6-axis flight control and adjustable gyro sensitivity, this tiny drone can zip, hover, and even flip through the air with ease. And, the best part is you don’t need to be an ace pilot to fly it. With auto take-off and landing as well as altitude holding features built-in, you can take to the skies even if you’re a complete beginner. It’s on sale for $19.

5 min fly time?
I think you mean three-axes.
1) In our wonderful world of physics there are three axes of motion. (We affectionately call them X, Y, and Z).
2) The plural of axis is axes.
P.S. It’s not a drone. It’s a remote controlled aircraft (R/C aircraft.)
Re: Six-Axis Control
I think 6 axes is correct. Three axes of translation and three axes of rotation. That’s what is commonly used for describing the movement of rigid objects.
Now to be honest, I am rather skeptical about the 6-axes claim and besides, without some features/payload that are actually orientation-dependent, there would not be much of a point in it anyway.
Re: Re: Six-Axis Control
It’s the same 3 axes. The actions of rotating or motion (translation) don’t create a new set of axes.
Personally I can’t imagine the “value” of rotating around anything other than the horizontal axis… but that’s just me 🙂 “The joy of a barrel roll with nobody in it???”
Is it good for use?
