You'll soon be able to I'm sure.

The military have them now. Soon SWAT squads followed by the police. Then the media. Then individuals.

As I said

PS: We all know that the media covers big stories via helicopters. Imagine the footage they'll be able to get with these things.

Let's do the math!

"The ministry said Sunday that the Black Hornet was developed by Norway's Prox Dynamics AS as part of a 20 million pound (US$30 million) contract for 160 units with southern England's Marlborough Communications Ltd. "

$30,000,000 divided by 160 units = a measly $187,500 EACH!

I'll only be able to get one once they reach commodity pricing.

They will never use them. If they, the media, did, they would have to report the true story! That would put them out of business.

Well they haven't done that since the invention of the printing press in 1450 so I doubt small drones will make a difference

Once Radio Shack gets involved, they'll be $59.95.
