With our current fascination with helicopters, we would be remiss not to mention the DraganFlyer Industrial Electric Gyro Stabilized RC Helicopter that's been around for a while, a $5000 flyer with four rotors and an electronically stabilized mechanism that makes it sturdy enough for video surveillance work. Use your imagination here.

Never mind those little buzzing mosquitoes and Bell Jet Ranger look-alikes that have caught our attention in the past; we want one of these carbon fiber babies that can fly for 18 minutes on a charge, and can lift a payload of up to a pound. These drone aircraft are so sophisticated, this model's more-expensive brandmate can't even be purchased by mere mortals—it's only available to the military and government black ops. Now that's the one we really want!
