You will, I think, be wanting one of these. It’s equipped with a camera and GPS and I’m pretty sure it could be modified to bring terror to your enemies.
Ambitious readers will no doubt be itching to build their own. Here’s a software demo. Via Grinding.

I do want one, badly. :)

The acceleration in 'elevator mode' is incredible. If it didn't make so much noise it would be perfect for surveillance (and assassination). Yes I want one.

That has crazy acceleration! Do something about the noise and it would be a great toy for the military.

The boys in the lab are working on an upgrade for the Guild of Evil™. It won’t sound like a balloon full of angry bees and it will have lava cannons and a shrinking ray.

I want a decacopter.

Very cool. Can I have one with a lava cannon?

"It won't sound like a balloon full of angry bees"
I thought you'd want one that sounds exactly like that, only louder.

Exactly Anna. Now imagine a couple of dozen of them (with previously mentioned lava cannons) chasing someone :D .

Okay, okay. I’ve instructed the lab boys to make one that sounds like a huge, amplified bouncy castle full of angry bees. The rumble alone should induce mass perspiration within a 5 kilometre radius. Did I mention the lava will be radioactive?

"a huge, amplified bouncy castle full of angry bees."
I want to see that. I really do.

Looks like an early ancestor of the SHIELD Heli-Carrier (http://screenrant.com/wp-content/uploads/shield-helicarrier.jpg ).
I wonder if a scaled up version could fulfill the mission requirements of the V-22 Osprey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-22_Osprey )...

I've been a really good boy this year and I just saw something really cool on the Internet...

I don't suppose anyone has a rough idea for the cost of goods on one of these?
February 15, 2010 at 23:38
I must use it to destroy the known universe. Mein Gott....

€1100-1500 for the kit, depending on model. I imagine there'd be quite a lot of soldering! They're based in NW Germany.
I wonder what the endurance is (Li-polymer battery).
Sadly, even though my birthday's coming up, I don't think I'll be getting one.

The Hexakopter will fly for 35 minutes on a 5000mah 4cell Lipo.
