Have y'all seen the new "hobby photo toy" called the quad-copter? It is causing quite the stir, a small remote control helicopter with a camera built on that has quite the range and is nearly silent. There have been a lot of discussions on it from a peeping tom standpoint.
Aside from the controversial aspects of it, one of my neighbors ordered one and took some photos with it.
Pretty darn capable machine for a hobbyist to be playing with.
