With Jurassic World just around the corner, it's a great time to be a lover of both dinosaurs and toys. And while this flapping, flying RC pterodactyl isn't officially associated with the movie, that's just fine — because it's a flapping, flying RC pterodactyl you can use to terrify your neighbourhood.
In the air it's considerably quieter than an RC plane because there are no propellers or ducted fans to keep it aloft. Just a pair of large flapping wings and a pair of independently controlled feet that serve as flaps for steering, climbing, and descent.
Available later this year for around $US300 — no Aussie price or release date just yet — it includes a full wireless remote, giving it a flight range of around 300 metres. On a single charge you can expect around 12 to 15 minutes of flight time, which is more than enough to swoop down on a handful of unsuspecting victims. [PaulG Toys]
