Had you considered buying a drone about two years ago, many people would have labelled you as crazy. But nowadays, within the last few year no less than, that is what the excitement is all about. They have been increasing in popularity plus much more and much more commercial applications have developed on their behalf. The two main competition is Parrot with now released the 2.0 version of their AR Drone for amateurs, and DJI Phantom which pricing over $1,000 is designed for very serious players in the drone arena.
The AR Drone is priced at about $300 or more based on whether you decide to select any other features including GPS based auto-pilot, another battery or extra memory in the form of a USB plug-in stick. It is then less expensive and yes it may not surprise me if it becomes one of the top Christmas gifts this year!

Thankfully that HD camcorders are getting to be increasingly less expensive nowadays and the Parrot AR Drone and also the DJI Phantom you can keep them.
Gps System As above mentioned GPS is optional for the AR Drone and can be had by buying a 'flight recorder' for about $140 off Amazon. However, the DJI Phantom comes with GPS capability and a 'return home' feature built in.
Handy Remote Control Capability Aside from the price among those two drones, the way they are controlled is the next largest difference. Parrot, with help from French scientific study has created quite an intuitive app for android and ios, called Parrot Freeflight.
