and some of them have wifi capability (turn OFF your GoPro wifi !!) and can fly themselves "home" via satellite if the batteries go weak or lose communication with the controller as well as maintaining level flight regardless of wind gusts.

My neighbors have one and it is fun to watch them 'play.' I had trouble getting the video to play but kept at it and saw most of the shots.

just kidding...but maybe not

and this is why...the third incident in 24 months...I'm not in favor of regulation but seeing as the FAA has prohibited commercial drone flights..it wouldn't surprise me...
