Quadrocopter lurks mid-air, shoots video or peeps

Maybe this NicoletoMK Mikrokopter Quadrocopter is not trendy enough to be controlled by an iPhone like that Parrott AR.Drone we saw at CES, but it's powerful enough for its four rotors to lift a 1.1-lb camcorder. You can either control it with its sophisticated remote or program it to lurk in the air autonomously, dutifully sending video back to you from its lofty perch according to your own preprogrammed flight plan.

This is no toy, created for professional videographers to smoothly shoot aerial footage, and serious peeping toms to look into places where they're not necessarily wanted. If you speak German, you might understand what they're talking about in this video of this way-cool copter in flight:
