    Im wanting to get into drone flying. Are there any drones I can control. with my wireless laptop?

    A laptop can provide some parts of the control, but usually not all. Also, this is probably not the way to start out in the hobby - you should get some toy drones and learn how to use the sticks.

    There are a number of simulators which will work on a laptop.

    Also, if you end up (later) with a more advanced machine that uses the open source APM flight controllers, there is a Mission Planner app - which does GPS flight planning and more - that will run on your laptop:
