    Wow. I think I saw those at Toys-r-Us. They are called AirHogs or something like that. Yup here is a better one
    Air Hogs - The Leader in Remote Control Vehicles , You can fly it with your iPhone. I bet it doesn't cost 20 million euros for 125 of them either

    Either way I don't think giving Big Brother a Little Brother would be a very good investment.... you know with cutting military budget and all. I would hate to see more of my buddies go unemployed so we can have a swarm of toy drones.

    Not so worried about those wee little helicopters but more about them wee little hellfires.

    YEA THE STUFF IS GETTTING PRETTY DEVELOPED AN HIGH TECH . THE RC GROUPS ARE ALL WORRIED THAT CHANGING LAWS WILL CRIMP THERE HOBBY JUST LIKE GUN OWNERS.

    IT WOULD BE VERY EASY TO EQUIP A RC HELOCOPTER WITH A FULL AUTO GUN AN FLY IT FROM 1000 MILES AWAY . THOSE BIGGER RC PLANES CAN PACK SOME WEIGHT AN I HAVE SEEN THEM AT SHOWS DO SOME AMAZING STUFF.

    GUYS ARE FLYING STUFF WITH CELL PHONES AN STUFF NOW JUST THINK IN 10 YEARS.

    THE ELECTRIC STUFF IS REALLY GETTING BETTER WITH ELECTRIC MOTORS THERE REALLY QUIET . I WORKED WITH A BIG RC NUT . I WANTED TO DO A BLIMP TO FLY OVER THE WOODS TO DO GAME SCOUTING ON DEER WITH A CAMERA LOL

    WASENT THERE A FULL AUTO ON ONE OF THE RUSSUN GUYS UTUBE VIDEOS ?????

    When you own a piece of property how high in the air does that ownership go?
    50',100'16000'?
    I'm wondering if there is a way to legally declare a "no fly zone" over one's property?
    If they land one in your yard can you run it over with the lawn mower?

    It is said that the US has them that could be as small as a bumble bee.

    There are also research papers on the idea of something the size of a mosquito.

    Something about the idea of constant population surveillance doesn't sit too well the idea of free society.
