A flying multi-copter that is powerful enough to carry a high quality action camera and folds easily in your pocket has been designed in the US.

The Pocket Drone is equipped with an action camera for capturing aerial photos and video and a rechargeable battery allowing for flights of up to 20 minutes.

The device, which only weighs around 450 grammes, folds up to the size of a small tablet for portability.

The creators claim that the drone is designed for easy use. It can be unpacked and launched within 20 seconds, and is controlled by an included remote or from any Android phone or tablet with a USB port, 'Mashable' reported.

"Until now, most people could not participate in this awesome new technology revolution — the cost was too great, the drones too bulky, and the software too difficult to operate," creators Timothy Reuter, TJ Johnson and Chance Roth wrote on Kickstarter website.

The Pocket Drone can be purchased for USD 445 without a controller or USD 495 for the full package.
