I have to say, after some time playing with the new FlyTech Bat from WowWee today, I am impressed, and I'd like to get you a quick preview of what's in store.

You may be surprised to hear me say that, given that the Bat only has one control (speed/height) and is aimed towards a younger audience. That being said, I really enjoyed...
