Remote control helicopters were a fad not too long ago, but who needs that when you can fly a remote control plane, which also acts as spy vehicle collecting video as you fly. Red5 has just introduced its spy hawk plane, which comes with a 5 megapixel camera attached to the nose. The aircraft beams the video back to your 3.5-inch screen which is embedded in the controller. The plane can be controlled within a 600 feet radius and comes with 4GB of SD card storage.

The Spy Hawk also features a stabilization system which makes it much easier to fly as well as an autopilot switch which will keep the plane at the correct altitude. The aircraft can stay in the air for about 30 minutes thanks to its 7.4v lithium-ion polymer. No need to worry about crashing as the Spy Hawk has a tough outer body due to its EPO crash resistant foam. Even cooler is that if your friend also has a Spy Hawk, you can link the two planes together which will allow you to follow the planes while they record. The Spy Hawk is available for £245.95 ($380).
