We still like the idea of hooking up a digital camera to a kite to take aerial shots, but if you're more into actually scoping out the territory than creating a DIY device that's as likely to crash as it is to fly, you may want to check out the XB-39 Eagleye from Estes Rockets. The $150 remote controlled toy spyplane has a 55-inch wingspan, can reach altitudes of up to 1,000 feet, and can shoot up to 26 pics from its onboard digicam. Just be careful not to fly it too close to bridges, dams or nuclear power plants, unless you want it shot down by homeland security forces.
