Giving us a whole new perspective on life, death, and Star Wars...

Drones are one of the most divisive topics in the world today. Not the ones dropping bombs of freedom all over the Middle East - those are obviously fine - but commercially available camera drones that anyone can pick up for a couple of grand.

So here is a celebration and condemnation of the meddlesome little devices, showing you the craziest, funniest and most controversial unplanned footage caught on drone camera.

A bird's-eye view has never looked so terrifying...
