The Parrot BeBop Drone is Parrot's newest addition to their awesome line of drones

Leave it to the makers of the wildly popular AR. Drone, Parrot has once again come out with a real winner. The Bebop drone. Like the AR., it's navigated from a tablet or larger smartphone (iOS or Android), but the great addition that we were really impressed with is the Skycontroller you see in the image below. While it's feels much like a gaming controller in your hand, I'd argue that it's waaaaay more fun than just sitting on your couch blasting everything that moves... ok, that's fun too. ;D

You'll most often see it with a Go Pro mounted on a Gimbal for such tasks, but it is powerful enough to carry a small pro-grade camera as well.

Flying Fun Anywhere with the Kii Toys Nano Drone

The Kii Toys nano drone is a really fun compact drone that can be flown just about anywhere. We found that even though it's fast, it wont even knock over a 20oz bottle of pop because it's so light! That makes it perfect for annoying the crap out of mom and dad while making sure that you don't break anything ensuring you don't spend any time in "time out"!
