Ever since Amazon founder Jeff Bezos announced his company's plan to use drones to deliver packages in about 30 minutes, it's all anyone is talking about.

CBS Chicago reporter Derrick Blakley talked to Dennis McFarlane at Al's Hobby Shop, who said basic drone choppers are available at the shop for around $300. They might not be able to deliver a package in their current form, he said, but the technology is the same—and they're among the most popular items for Christmas.
