What are you looking at?

This drone is one of the smallest around, but it's packed with features. Let's take a look at what it can do.

It's called the Micro Drone 3.0, and it fits in the palm of your hand. Just because it's small doesn't mean it's flimsy – it can fly straight in winds of up to 45mph, which is an impressive feat.

It auto levels its flight, so it's always steady for filming. It packs a 720x1,280-pixel video camera that records at 30fps. You can livestream the action straight to Meerkat or Periscope too, so you can check it out on your phone while flying.

The range of 30 feet gives you plenty of room to manoeuvre, while its modular design makes it endlessly customisable – snap on the expansion packs using magnets, and you can make it look how you want, from a TIE Fighter to a sparrow. Get handy with a 3D printer, and you can make your own designs to ensure your drone is the most distinctive on the block.

If you don't fancy using the controller, you can fly it with your phone, all the while watching the footage on your Android or iOS device. Switch it to the first-person view, and you can experience the ride as if you were in the cockpit.

If you're quick, you can pick one up for $125 (£81), otherwise it will cost $150 (£97). Shipping starts in November.
