Draganflyer

The first fully legal UAV for emergency services, the  Draganflyer X6 Police Helicopter, has been unveiled.

The X6 Police Helicopter comes with 6 rotors.  It can fly autonomously or by remote control. It also has an anti vibration camera mount, allowing it to shoot high definition video as well as stills.

This bad boy is already being used by Canadian police.

Check out the drone spying on a high rise apartment  after the break.
