Holiday 2012 Gift Guide: Aerial Drones

The holiday season is upon us and there is a certain something in the air. I’m talking about something a bit more tangible than the ineffable holiday spirit. It is the whir of aerial drones buzzing through the skies!

Today’s hobby drones are pretty amazing. They are packed with features and have a level of automation and sensors never before available to the amateur. Prices have dropped to the point that this technology is accessible, even if you aren’t a government, university, or serious hobbyist willing to spend more than they should. It’s about time to consider the perfect gift for that geeky someone special in your life with a need for speed or a secret desire for air reconnaissance.

An article in the Houston Chronicle(remember the audience of a Sunday Paper) filled with a significant amount of FUD

Drone makers push Congress to open skies to surveillance

WASHINGTON - Are unmanned aircraft, known to have difficulty avoiding collisions, safe to use in America's crowded airspace? And would their widespread use for surveillance result in unconstitutional invasions of privacy?

Experts say neither question has been answered satisfactorily. Yet the federal government is rushing to open America's skies to tens of thousands of the drones - pushed to do so by a law championed by manufacturers of the unmanned aircraft.

It appears that the technology has been around for a while to be able to use drones pretty close up without being detected ... Insect Drones
