This is no dime-store knockoff either (do dime stores exist anymore)? According to Gizmowatch, "It has a self-leveling feature based on thermal intelligence that uses four infrared sensors to keep a check on temperature difference between sky and ground. The onboard CPU collects the input from these sensors and guides the helicopter to maintain proper level." And don't forget the anti-vibration camera mount.

All that means one thing: It doesn't come cheap. The Draganflyer retails for $2,400. But hey, that's supposedly $600 off the original price. Besides, how often do you get to play Howard Cosell?
