This is completely off topic and pretty much unrelated to software, but if you are looking for a cheap gift, this hexacopter is pretty darn good for the price: ( $18 )
I don’t get any benefit for advertising it or anything… I’ve bought several small quadcopters from them before but I am really enjoying this one. It is the easiest to fly/most stable so far.
I like it so much I’m buying several, to give to my engineering-team colleagues for Christmas. I fly it all around my house, annoying my son (hovering over his head while he is engrossed in videos wearing headphones) and “tagging” him with a bump and flying away quickly, or just chase him around the house. It is hilarious.
I developed this hobby because I broke my foot 4 weeks ago and have been pretty immobile, so this is the best way to annoy my son, from the couch, lol.
