The Swinglet Cam drone takes off, flies and lands by itself, following a pre-programmed flightpath and taking a series of high-resolution pictures based on user-defined GPS waypoints. The pix are downloaded when the drone lands.

It’s said to cost around €7000.

Cheap, compared to its cousin in the US military.
