Do you need to shoot some great aerial photos or videos but don't have enough money to rent a helicopter or your plane is in the shop. Check out the A.R. Drone 2.0 Quadricopter by Parrot. The A.R. Drone Quadricopter is a small flying device with a camera attachment that is remotely controlled using an app on your iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, or Android device.

This little flying movie maker has a control range of 165 feet and can take still photos as well as record video anywhere within that range. Don't worry about being an expert R.C. pilot because there is an auto pilot and  stabilization feature that helps you fly better once airborne.  

The on board camera shoots in HD at 30 fps. The camera's feed can be viewed in real time on the device you are using to control it from. The control application can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Android Market. While you record you can send your videos directly to YouTube and Picasa using the App.

The A.R. Drone 2.0 wont be available until May1st 2012 but you can Pre-order one today from Amazon.
