Just a taste of the things that already exist today.
These are just a few examples of the variey of spy helicopters that exist today.
Their price range from a few hunderd dollars to a few thousands. They can have cameras ranging from VGA to almost HD quality video. Their flight time can exceed one hour for the biggest models and their control range almost reaches one mile for the largetst models. Lightweight, easily carried and assembled, these robotic spy helicopters can be carried anywhere, assembled in a matter of minutes, launch into spy action, return to their sender and then the controller and the helicopter can disappear after a few minutes.
What does this mean? It's quite easy. Today, anyone, even kids, can buy these things, learn in a few hours how to operate them, drive or walk over to their target zone, assemble and launch the spy helicotper.
Then, the helicoper can reach everywhere. It can peek in your window, no matter how high your apartment is. It can easily fly over your fence, no matter how protected your mansion is. Everywhere there is a window, it will be vulnarable to these tiny helicopters. You will never see or hear them. Some even have michrophones, so they can also record conversations.
And some movies:
