http://blog.makezine.com/2012/11/27/holiday-2012-gift-guide-aerial-...Holiday 2012 Gift Guide: Aerial DronesThe 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.
