Rebranded Cheerson CX-10 being sold as the Skeye Nano Drone

cx10There’s rebranded Chinese phones being sold under different names aplenty, but what you might not know is the fact that a lot of Chinese drones too get rebranded and marketed¬†under different names.

As many drone enthusiasts might have already noticed, quite a few online publications (such as pocketnow, BGR, The Next Web, etc.) are selling the Skeye Nano Drone for around $35. Even if you don’t have the keen eye, it isn’t hard to tell that the Skeye Nano Drone is in fact a rebranded Cheerson CX-10.

Many choose to call this ‘white collar branding’, while others simply don’t seem very bothered about the practice altogether. As far as I’m concerned, rebranding is a part and parcel of the products market, and such rebranded products only sell because there is a market for them.

While the Cheerson CX-10 costs a mere $15-18, the Skeye Nano Drone is sold for more than $30, often reaching prices as high as $35 which is more than double the amount people can get the CX-10 for.

The Cheerson CX-10 is sold in a variety of different names, among which my favourite remains to be the Bayang Toys X6 which adds hard propeller guards and upgrades the controller to a Hubsan X4-style one. Even that goes for around the $23 mark, around $10-12 cheaper than the price the Skeye Nano Drone is sold for.

While you and me would be happy importing a Cheerson CX-10, not everyone on the internet is comfortable waiting weeks with the overhead of customs duties and shipping woes that come along. Anyway, take a look at the promotional content showcasing the Cheerson CX-10, and then that of the Skeye Nano Drone.

    Is the same true for the Habrok Nano? Because that one looks a lot like cx-10.

    • Just did a quick Google search, and yes, it does look like the same quadcopter.
