Well, I suppose if Google is already spying on people, it may as well do it from Drones too! I can just see it now... "This targeted assassination, brought to you courtesy of Google maps...."

Begun, the drone wars have. I saw something amazing in the local paper recently. Not obviously amazing, but it was. The photo was of some celebration in a city center plaza type place. The photo showed the small reflection lake and crowds milling around. In the center of the photo, near the top, you could see a quad copter with a camera hovering above it all. The quad copter isn't the amazing part. What I find amazing is that there was no mention of it anywhere in the article. It was just there and nobody noticed or nobody cared. It wasn't news.

True. Parrot's hardware is amazing, the software seems very intuitive, but what truly shocking to me when I was visiting the company, was a sudden realization that this may change our world view. The CEO was showing me a world map on the web, to which Parrot's drone users from all over the world have already uploaded their own video -- shot by their drone -- at any given time of the day. You click the dots on the map, and you see what's going on in a beach in Africa or a city in China. Now how easy it has gotten to see what's going on everywhere in the world. You can see a recent complilation of the best video clips uploaded by Parrot users here. http://youtu.be/I6QFSLsaKw8

Your website link could not open in China. What a pity!!!! I am interested in personal drone very much. I want to know how to upload the video. If you could help me, please send email to me at lisanshi433@yahoo.com.cn. Thanks in advance.
