I want one really bad! I have one of the Parrot AR Drones mentioned in the article and a little experience building and flying small electric RC helicopters. The quad models are asymptotically easier to manage than the traditional helicopter model. While the Parrot AR Drone is certainly cool, I immediately wished it had a standard dual stick controller option. The virtual sticks or the tilt control with an iDevice left much to be desired. The Phantom 2 is definitely on my wish list should any eiC'ers want to chip in for my upcoming birthday. :D
