Video Camera Helicopter

Helicopter that hovers with a video camera that lasts ten minutes in video mode or taking hundreds of still images. A website with video editing software enables sharing of video and social networking around the shared videos. This is an intriguing concept because it seems clear that video would be interesting to watch that was shot from many different hovering angles. What is not clear is how good the video will be in terms of resolution. Also, can the video be watched without getting the feeling that it shook too much? Making a video camera steady is a huge challenge even for handheld shooting. How much more difficult is it likely to be when the camera is vibrating. The TV commercial for this RC toy is startling because it shows a boy spying on his family. This has been the theme of a lot of spy toys for the past five years: sneaking up on a relative with a camera. The last was a vehicle that did this - like was done on one of the Home Alone movies. Here, the camera is hovering in the air. This idea was shown on a recent episode of Community.
