Someone sent me a link to a video with these large balloons that operate like fish -- back fins move from side to side. One was a Great White shark, the other a clown fish. They moved throughout large buildings amongst the people. It was pretty comical to see.
I have a couple of those little helicopters that can only be flown indoors. Its all fun.

I found the link to those flying fish....

I will see if I can link it here. Its the first time I ever did anything with video.

Thanks Bynx. It looks like a really fun toy. It would be great to mount a
high res camera on it. It could be the ultimate test for one of those waterproof/
shockproof cameras.

The blue and metalic copter has a camera mounted. Not great or worth looking at really. You need a larger more powerful copter that can carry a camera with good resolution. My son and I were out flying this afternoon and we lost the black one. It got up so high the wind just took it away. Right now its in someone's back yard I think. Or stuck up in a tree somewhere. A large kite might be the thing to take high shots. Kites dont get blown away in the wind.

Amazing.
