Bug your loved ones with a mini-copter

It's like a mosquito with a remote control

This season, it's the miniature helicopter, all of 6 inches long and about a third of an ounce. You can see one in action in this cheesy video, complete with a score reminiscent of Magnum P.I. (A competing version that looks identical can be seen here too.) The demos are a far cry from this amazing RC plane footage, but the mosquito-like copters are still guaranteed to sufficiently annoy friends and loved ones to your black-hearted content.
