Drones are becoming a way of life here in the U.S., thankfully they are a flown by people who don’t crash everyday. Amateur RC helicoptering is another story. Crashes happen. That’s why hobbyists recommend buying a “starter” model, because you’re going to wreck the first RC helicopter you fly. It will happen.
But with the Space Ball, a new RC helicopter out of Japan that is enclosed in a flexible, plastic, cage, your helicopter is safe. It even has a feature that lets you atomize fragrance all around the room with this helicopter.
The Space Ball is made for indoor play and if it crashes, it will roll back into the right position so it can take off again. It’s available from a Japanese retailer right now for ¥6,279 or $80.
