Check out this fun radio controlled toy, the Snelflight VTOl Jump Jet RC Aircraft.
Jump Jet is a genuine VTOL fixed-wing plane especially designed for flying indoors. It can take off vertically and hover, then fly forwards, backwards, even sideways. It can swoop and dive just like a real jet plane, and then land on the palm of the hand!
Uniquely, it combines the self-righting stability of fixed-wing planes with the hovering capability of helicopters.
Jump Jet offers the same precision control and robust mechanical simplicity which together made the Hoverfly helicopter so popular. And Jump Jet offers what no other currently available model can full three-axis controllability combined with extreme self-righting stability, all from minimal moving parts. This makes Jump Jet ideal for learning to fly rotorcraft. It has all the controls of a helicopter, but it is easier to fly.
Here’s a video of it in action.
The Snelflight VTOl Jump Jet RC Aircraft, will go on sale for £79.90 (about $160), no word on when it will be released as yet.
