This multidirectional, radio-controlled UFO is fully assembled and ready to fly. Gyroscopic action keeps the motor stable while the sphere turns and dips, just like in unmanned aerial vehicles. The safety cage prevents damage to the blades while you get the hang of flight, and to your home when the inevitable crashes happen. The rechargeable lithium battery powers a 5-minute flight on a 30-minute charge.


For ages 8 and up. Controller requires six AA batteries, not included. 6" diameter x 6"H.

      Comments about Gyroscopic Remote-controlled Flying Sphere:

      My five-year-old grandson wanted a remote-controlled airplane for his birthday. I feared disaster if a toy was expensive, too hard to operate, or too easy to break. This toy engaged the whole family, and even though today is the first day we've tried it, it feels like a great choice and a good value. Five is probably a little too young without adult supervision, but the toy is advertised for 8-12, which seems right.

      The history of aviation may never be the same. Forty years before the Wright brothers flew at Kitty Hawk, frantic inventors and engineers rushed to create steam-powered flying machines that they hoped would decide the fate of the Civil War. Mark Ragan, author and project historian of the Hunley (a Civil War submarine), recently discovered shocking new evidence suggesting that both sides of the conflict were struggling to craft steam-powered flying machines, capable of bombing the enemy.
