Now you can live out your chopper pilot and spy fantasies at the same time. The Spycopter is a radio-controlled scale model of a Hughes/MD 500 light utility helicopter, with a video camera attached to its underside.

It comes with a four channel control and has a range of over 750 metres, flying for up to 10 minutes at a time.

The helicopter comes with a receiver that attaches to your computer via USB so you can follow the action on screen, or even fly it using the pilot's eye view.

Its dual rotor design makes it very stable in flight – perfect for a beginner and great for smooth camerawork.

Just don't get any Blue Thunder peeping tom ideas, now. Promise?
