photoAccording to the FAA, you can't fly the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 in the D.C. Flight Restricted Zone. But just guess where this picture was taken.

According to a correspondent who prefers to remain anonymous but who recently passed through Minneapolis Saint Paul International Airport, it is being sold by Brookstone "Inside of security, with open access to commercial and military runways."

I suppose the FAA would respond that they are not illegal to sell in DC, just illegal to fly. And they're presumably not legal to fly at major airport terminals either. But still.
