I’m not sure how the whole "drone" future is going to turn out, but it is exciting to watch the improvements over a short period of time. The ease of flying, improvements in batteries and quality of video have really advanced. It will not be long before we’re "jumping" around town in a quadrotor. I still worry about safety and drones being used by terrorists, but the US needs to be on the cutting edge when it comes to innovation and amateur experimentation (just as will my EAA = Experimental Aircraft Association)
My son-in-law, Drew brought his older quadrotor to our house last summer, but recently upgraded to a more advanced model. He has sent me some amazing footage over their house. Hopefully later this year when we visit them in Wayzata, MN I’ll get a chance to play with his new quadrotor. It gives a whole new meaning to being an "armchair pilot."
