They’re undeniably fun, but all remote-controlled toys — particularly those that fly — have one very unfortunate downside in common: they all run out of power too quickly. Whether it’s gas or batteries, they’ll all be grounded before you’re done having fun. But not this tiny flying propeller.
Made with a carbon fibre shaft so it’s strong but lightweight, this tiny chopper — measuring just two-and-a-half inches tall — takes flight with a snap of your fingers. There’s no chargers or gas cans needed, it flies for as long as you’ve got the energy to launch it. And for $5 who cares if it crashes and burns on one fateful flight? If you’re worried you might easily destroy it, just get the two-pack for $8, which ensures you’ve got a backup just in case. [ThinkGeek]
