Radio-controlled Superman Spotted in the Skies of San Diego

 |  |  |  July 2, 2013


Look. Up in the sky. It’s a bird! It’s a plane. It’s… Superman, with a gaping hole in his chest. This radio-controlled Superman was recently spotted flying the skies of San Diego. General Zod was nowhere to be seen.

This radio-controlled Superman plane was developed by engineer Otto Dieffenbach. Obviously Otto is a superhero fan who loves to create. He and his business partner Ed Hanley run a small startup company that develops R/C planes that look like people. In this case, the Man of Steel himself. Mostly they are comic characters for commercial promotion. They have also made a flying Iron Man and a winged lady named Ms. Emerson as shown in this video clip:

Unlike the real Superman, this radio-controlled plane can only reach speeds of up to 30 mph. If you want one, it’ll set you back about £5,000 (about $7600 USD).
