Takaratomy Helibot Toy Helps Man Fly

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 30, 2007


This new toy from TakaraTomy Japan features a little humanoid who can fly. The little guy wears a backpack with a helicopter-like set of rotors to propel him into the skies. Special balancing rods keep the whole contraption from flipping over wildly through the air (although that sounds kinda cool.)

The CAUL (Car Action Unit’s Line, whatever that means) Helibot can fly for about 5 minutes on a full battery charge, and can be remotely operated up to 90 feet away using the included 2.4GHz controller.

The Helibot is available for pre-order now from NCSX Imports for $65.
