Drones can get really, really expensive. If you’re new to the hobby, these models and their deals should help put things within your reach.
There is no better way to celebrate the passing of time than with a gratuitous display of synchronized dancing. Scratch that: Make the dancers robots and add in some drones, too. That should do it.
We’ve all had flying toys that don’t actually fly. From little tin planes to hulking Millennium Falcon replicas, it’s fun to imagine if the toy worked like the real thing. Well, one anonymous quadcopter enthusiast didn’t imagine with his new Hasbro First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter. He made it fly.
In 2013, Amazon told the world that they wanted to start delivering stuff straight to your backyard, using drones. It seemed like a science-fiction pipedream, but here we are in 2015, and they’re still working on it while waiting for the “regulatory support needed to realize our vision”.
NASA’s Greased Lightning GL-10 is a beast of a drone (it has 10 engines!) that’s the closest thing we have to a Transformer in real life.

Designer Alex Cornell has made this video called Our Drone Future, which gives us a glimpse of a future where fleets of drones monitor our every outdoor activity. It's as cool as it is a little creepy.
Amazon's drone delivery service hasn't launched yet - and may never launch - but that hasn't stopped people from imagining what a "missed delivery" notice might look like.
As people who clamor for war think that World War III will soon dawn upon us because that's just how the world goes, it looks like China's trying to go drone-for-drone with the Americans. And as the Americans have stepped up the flight testing of their drones, so have the Chinese. And weirdly, they look the same.
An awkward thing happens late in the life of a fighter jet. It becomes too decrepit for combat but too functional for the junkyard. Don't worry, though. The Air Force has a plan: convert them all into drones in order to offer fighter pilots in training more realistic target practice.
