World's Smallest Drone - Piccolissimo

Smallest Drone Piccolissimo

This is the world's smallest drone, it's called Piccolissimo, after its creator Matt Piccoli. A motor spins the body 40 times per second, while the propellor spins 800 times per second in the other direction.

Only about the width of a quarter and weighing just 2.5 grams. It is still self powered and controllable and the parts are 3D printed, saving on costs.

Tiny microdrones have big potential in agriculture or disaster relief. THousands of them could cost less than one big drone and could explore more efficiency.
