Kyosho J-Kart R/C Car Drives, then Flies

by


I’ve seen plenty of remote-controlled cars and helicopters over the years, but I can honestly say this is the first one that I’ve seen that starts out driving on the ground, then instantly takes to the air.

Kyosho’s R/C J-Kart (Jumping Kart) just needs a little bit of runway when it first starts up, then quickly lifts off. The idea behind the car is that you can drive it along the ground, then flip the “Power Boost” button to lift off to avoid on-ground obstacles. Here’s a video clip of the car in action to ahow you how it works.

Nifty, eh? The guys over at Japan Trend Shop call the R/C Jumping Kart a “3-in-1 copter car”, referring to car, UFO and helicopter – but I have to say that UFO and helicopter are basically the same thing in this case. Still, a car that can fly is pretty cool.

The only thing not to like about this thing is the price if you want to import one from Japan. Selling for $124 (USD), it’s quite steep for what really amounts to a toy. If you happen to live in Japan, you can probably score one for about half that price, or if you do some searches, you might get lucky.
