If you’ve contemplated using that drone you got for Christmas to shoot action footage of athletes or race cars, DON’T. This short video from last year’s FIS Alpine slalom at Madonna di Campiglio shows skier Marcel Hirscher as he’s nearly taken out by an errant UAV.
Take to the skies with this teensy palm-sized drone which has a built-in camera. The Cheerson-CX-10C is easy to fly, and packs a tiny 640×480 VGA camera for snapping impromptu stills and videos, and comes with a 2GB Micro SD card for your recordings.
While drones can be used for good, they can also be used for nefarious purposes. A police program in The Netherlands has been training eagles to snatch threatening drones right out of the air. Apparently, they’re working on armor to protect the birds from more powerful rotors.
