Although I can't figure out how much this drone costs, senseFly's eBee is available for regular consumers who want to take aerial photography and make 2D and 3D maps with the included software.
Collects aerial photography of 1-10sqkm in a single flight at down to 5cm precision.
The eBee has a flight time of up to 45 minutes allowing to cover areas of up to 10sqkm in a single flight. With its 16MP camera it can shoot aerial imagery at down to 3cm/pixel resolution. The images can then be used to create maps and elevation models with a precision of 5cm.
