April 12, 2009: Looking For A Drone Of Your Own?
Sure, hobbyists recently got the gear they needed to build a unmanned aerial vehicle, but what if your solder tends to start fires instead of affixing wires? The solution: Throw money at the problem.
More specifically, throw money at Lehmann Aviation (http://www.lehmannaviation.com/). Their LP960 includes a 12 megapixel camera that can stream video to the operator, stay in the air for half an hour, and weighs around two pounds. Of course, the "money" part of "throw money at them" comes to around $17,000, so maybe you'd like to practice with your soldering iron some more?
