Here’s another fun geek toy, the Hovering 4 Channel RC Jump Jet.
This fun radio controlled toy has 4 mini propellers and a built in solid state accelerometer to keep it nice and steady whilst it hovers and moves about.
“You’ll want to learn to take advantage of all four channels; One channel allows up/down movement, another channel rotates right/left while the third channel moves the plane backward and forward. However the real key is the fourth channel that gives you right/left strafing. Imagine playing a helicopter based FPS shooter and you get the idea. The built in automatic trim means no trim dials or buttons to adjust. Simply power-cycle the remote before your flight and the Jump Jet auto trims itself using the accelerometer as a reference. Seriously, this is one of the best flying, most fun R/C toys we have ever seen.”
