OK, if you don’t already have a Drone, you should really look at the DJI Phantom 3 drone.

This puppy features an integrated camera with gimbal stabilization for smooth videos (2.7k HD) and clear photos (12.0MP). In addition, it’s well-built, feature-packed, and incredibly easy to fly. Not to mention fairly inexpensive, as far as drones go.

I got my hands on one a while back when they were still the latest model and it was awesome and fun to fly. It will fly for about 20 minutes on a full charge and even has an auto-pilot feature that will fly it back to the same place it was launched.

The drone comes with a remote control and uses software you can download to your Android or iPhone to transmit telemetry and real-time video.

Cool right?
