    Hobby Town has a small quad copter with camera for $129.
    Anybody want to split it with me ?

    Hey Folks! Glad to see we're getting some interest. I'm going to suggest that people start posting links on this page that might be interesting (unless someone suggests a better place for links). I'll start as a reply to this post.

    Really want to join you guys for this one but I am tied up Thursday evenings for the next 3 weeks. I think an aerial drone would have been great to offer to the Emrgency community during the flood.
    My vote is for a fixed wing long air time (1 hour or greater) with "Set and forget" guidance. I.e. put in the flight path and let it fly itself, and of course with a 720p video camera.

      Hey Karl! My guess is that we'll be at this longer than three weeks. :-) I like the idea of long air time, and I'm keeping myself open to a wide range of options (form-factor, power source, heavier/lighter than air, hybrid). I'm eager to start with a wide range of ideas and a blank whiteboard.

      For what it's worth, there was apparently a commercial drone company working over Longmont during the flood, but they were ordered to stop by the Sheriff's Department:http://gizmodo.com/wh...­
