Several similar Models.
V-Flyer "X-2200": Good manoeuvrability.
Omni Consumer Products "D-327": General Purpose.
Venus "Nite-Flite": IR camera, enhanced collision-avoidance.
Carousel "Titan": Heavy Lifter.

Plastic body-shells made in Manhattan to known (commercially available) designs.
Main electronics ditto.

Assembly and payload done at a Manhattan Electronics Specialist.
(There are not too many of these, and all are in Indie areas. Technophiles could do this, but these look more professional)

All feature high-res camera (including video and short-range audio).
All use Encrypted Control-Comms and Data-Transmission.

Easily-identifiable payloads:
Light armour
Laser range-finder (works in several frequencies)

Control-range: At least 1/2 mile. Quite possibly more
Battery: At least 2 hours flight-time
Autonomous systems: Collision Avoidance, object recognition, programmable paths*, auto-return on battery-low
Top Speed: 80mph (unimpeded, unencumbered), 60mph (unimpeded, medium payload), 40mph (dense obstacles)

Potential Extras/Customisation: Enhanced AI, Extra Armour, EMP Shielding, Enhanced Battery, Enhanced Control Range, Enhanced Camera, Enhanced Audio, Extra On-board Memory, and others

Possible Legal Situation: Allowing Drone to leave line-of-sight (Misdemeanour). Breach of Privacy (zoom lenses, accessing "private" locations) (Misdemeanour). Failing to abide by FAA Regulations (Misdemeanour).

*Orbit, follow, "click-n-stitch" wide-area photography, and others
