Default Anyone own a Quadcopter/Drone

I have an urge to buy one I've always thought the Parrot AR looked pretty cool but it's an expensive toy and I was put off altogether when I saw a few videos of people just losing control of it and it just flying off never to be seen again.

Never really thought about it since then but I just noticed Maplins in the UK are selling drones that can use GPS to return to you on their own if you lose the signal and they at least give the look of being a serious looking piece of kit.

One I'm considering is the DJI Phantom FC40 I'm not sure if I'd buy it fly it a few times then never touch it again though. Watched a few youtube videos and was quite impressed.

Really just wondering if anyones bought a Parrot or anything and if they actually still play with it or is it lying forgotten?

I'm thinking about it too.

We have a park across the street that's practically a drone test site. There's usually a horde of people watching and asking questions.
