This is one of those gadgets that I imagine we’ll be seeing in some cheesy kids spy movie, but you have to admit it is pretty cool.  Instead of taking pictures and video from the ground, now you can do it in the sky.  Don’t worry, you won’t have to pay someone to fly you around in a helicopter or airplane to do it either.  This little remote control helicopter allows for the average person to see pictures at a whole different angle.

Of course, by average person, I mean average person with a whole lot of extra cash.  Hey, once you pay the $9,000 though, at least you’ll always have access to aerial photography.  That is until it breaks or something at least.  This little helicopter can carry a DSLR camera or camcorder that weighs up to 6lbs.  Anything heavier and this miniature helicopter won’t be able to quite handle it.  Despite the hefty price tag, you have to admit, a gadget like this just brings out the kid in anyone.  You can’t help be think of all the possibilities.
