Drones for the common man

A drone with cameras, controlled by your cell phone, for $1000.

This is one way that ordinary Americans will be able to defend themselves against the escalating intrusion of all levels of government.  Next time something like Occupy Wall Street occurs, they will be able to stream the video live in the event of any kind of abuse by authorities.  Or when there is an oil pipeline break in a sensitive area (like the Yellowstone River).   It would be great to see an event rather than have to rely on the eyewitness reports, which are always biased.  Although editing would certainly bring bias into any reports produced later, like any other kind of reporting, this should be a useful journalistic tool.
