Drones are gaining more mainstream acceptance and now one company wants to set the bar on how small a drone can get with their mini drone models.

The 'Aerius Drone' was created by Axis Drones and measures at roughly around the same size as a quarter. The world's smallest quadcopter was crowdfunded and is now ready for its retail release -- the gadget is fun and convenient thanks to its portable size.

While drones used to be understood as a tool for large brands -- like those in the videography field -- they are now much more accessible for leisure use. The Aerius is so small, it can be docked into its controlling remote and can be used for up to seven minutes on a 15 minute charge. The device even comes with features like 'trick mode' that let users do flips and rolls to impress an audience.
