Revolutionary Helicopter Flight: Meet the FlyTech BladestarPosted by Peter Redmer on Monday, 14 January 2008
Helicopter flight is often thought of as one of the more elusive and difficult forms of RC aerial endeavors. With the FlyTech Bladestar, WowWee has brought a new dimension into play - and makes helicopter flight enjoyable for everyone!
Bladestar is absolutely amazing - you have to see it to believe it. What makes Bladestar so unique is its sensor-based navigation system; it's the first flying toy to have one.
This system enables Bladestar to intelligently guide itself throughout the room - it will avoid the ceiling and any other obstacles as well. What's really impressive is that seemingly by "magic," you can control its flight using just your hands!
If you'd like, you can grab the digital IR remote that comes with Bladestar and take full control. It also charges from the remote for convenience, and will fly for five minutes after a charge time of twenty minutes.
If you're feeling like the Red Baron - go ahead and get a friend to dogfight with you! See who can hit the "fire" button on the remote first - and "shoot" down your opponent. Better shape up on your Bladestar flying skills, or sacrifice your living room bragging rights!
Finally, Bladestar is durable and designed by WowWee to be crash-resistant, using light "high-flex" materials. It's built for indoor use only, perfect for year round flying fun. Just in case something does happen, Bladestar comes with two spare blades and two spare propellers.
Store Bladestar in its included protective carrying case - that is, if you can manage to put it down!
