B R/C Car Helicopter Hybrid: QuadCarTer
May 26th, 2013
Don Vitenzo invented a new type of quadcopter that’s sure to stoke the imaginations of kids and perhaps even vehicle makers. It’s called B, and it’s a remote-controlled quadcopter and car in one.
I know what you’re thinking. The answer is no, the wheels don’t tilt to a horizontal level when you command the B to fly. It doesn’t transform or anything and just flies as it is. But that’s all right; less moving parts means its less likely to break down. Speaking of which, Vitenzo designed B to be durable. Its body is made of polycarbonate and its wheel housing and propellers are very flexible.
The B also has a 2,200mAh battery that’s good for up to 15 minutes of rolling and flying. B is also equipped with a 720×1280 camera and it uses microSD cards (up to 32GB) to save video.
Floats like a butterfly, rides like a car. Buzzes like a bee. Peeps like a perv. Okay this is getting out of hand. Pledge at least £125 (~$190 USD) on Kickstarter to get a ready-to-assemble B kit.
