The best way to learn any science is to read books. Such toys are made for playtime!

I've recently viewed images from some people in Syria who have used something similar (although may have been homemade) to take birds eye photographs of demonstrations, which were then posted on the web.

How is a WiFi toy going to teach a kid anything about science? The whole thing is plug and play and probably not able to be modified or repaired. The helicopter could indeed be flown out of control range, or even more likely, be subject to jamming signals, accidental or intentional. In fact, it could probably be shot down with a rubber band from some of the "office marksmen" that I have observed in the past. The concerns about invasion of privacy certainly do seem to be another consideration, unless the video resolution is so very poor that those observed are not identifiable.

You don't fly these things very far typically, usually within sight of the operator.

Children should be able to learn science in an non-intrusive manner. Spying on your neighbor for fun will openly lead to more bullying aftre the video hits the Internet. Not good.

Sure and the lawyers will love them. Flying whirling blades into someone's face is not a good way to test code.

Helicopter can easily fly out of range :)

Wi-Fi control toys create a scientific mind to the kids. They can use various software plate forms and write their code and test the toys. A great new application to our children and grand children.

Then it should probably have a self-destruct feature!

What's the connectivity? WiFi? What if it flies out of your own WiFi coverage?
