Swann's releasing three new iDevice controlled helicopters for all the personal espionage / office hijinks you can cope with. The $70 iFly Micro Lightning will annoy colleagues on your floor while the similarly priced Sky Eye includes a camera that will shoot stills and video to its 512MB onboard memory before uploading the results to YouTube or Facebook. For the serious stalker / commercial spy, the Black Swann includes expandable microSD storage (yup, up to 32GB). The latter two devices have a range of 110 feet and all three will fly for eight minutes on a single charge. You'll be able to pick 'em up from Fry's and other good retailers soon, just try to remember not to get fired or arrested for treason, okay?

The Sky Eye and Black Swann let users record their flights as videos or still images with the touch of a button and easily share with their friends via the included USB cable.
