Radio Controlled Pterodactyl Flaps Wings to Fly
May 18th, 2007
Here’s the ultimate modern stone age gadget. It’s a remote controlled winged lizard that actually gets airborne by flapping its wings.
Instead of using some sort of propeller or engine, this guy just uses good old fashioned wing power. The $69 R/C Flying Pterosaur can fly indoors or out, and has a foam-cushioned body to prevent damage from crashes. Its unique design provides control not only over ascent and descent, but also the ability to steer in flight.
The prehistoric flying creature has a rechargeable battery that should provide about 10 minutes of flight on a 30 minute charge, and the remote works from up to 100 feet away.
