DIY drones: 25 kits to build your own

2. Robocat Co-Co 280

The Robocat Co-Co 280 is 11-inches long but is still called a "mini drone."

The kit comes with everything you need to construct this adorable bumblebee-like flyer, except for batteries and a radio system. For $116, that's a pretty good deal.
