If the only thing holding you back from creating mysterious crop circles throughout the Midwest was a proper way to capture your finished work on video, go get your tractor ready. The Parrot Bebop Drone promises to get that amazing aerial footage of your day at the beach, entire neighborhood, or anything else you want from a bird’s eye view. With its onboard 14MP camera, 180-degree fisheye lens, and the ability to grab wide-angle 1080p video without distortion, there’s no need to rent a crane for your indie film’s final shot. 3-axis digital image-stabilization helps keep the lightweight drone steady in the sky, and the embedded GPS even lets you send the drone on its path autonomously.

There’s 8GB flash memory, and a 1,200 mAh lithium-ion battery that gets 12 minutes of flight time per 2.5 hours charge. It’s all controlled via Wi-Fi and your iOS or Android device, or go all in with the forthcoming and futuristic Skycontroller, which also is compatible with the virtual reality goodness of Oculus Rift. Look for the Parrot Bebop Drone to go on sale this winter, though we’re guessing its asking price won’t sound very sale-like. [Purchase]
