Overview

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.

Details

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

Nat Geo and STEM

National Geographic is home to a thoughtful selection of educational kids toys, games, activity kits, books, and more that engage young minds and foster a lifetime of discovery through fun and hands-on learning. The leading concept in 21st-century education is STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It’s a cross-disciplinary approach to learning that entrepreneurs and educators believe is key to a healthy innovation economy.


We’re proud to have been supporters of STEM learning since long before the acronym was invented. Anyone who has watched a child open a present only to set the gift aside and play with the box knows that kids have an innate curiosity and desire to explore and understand their world. National Geographic explorers never lose that curiosity, and it has lead to some of the most remarkable discoveries in the last 125 years.

IT WAS GOING TO BE A GIFT FOR MY GRANDSON BUT FIRST...

By PP

Verified Buyer

Comments about Gyroscopic Remote-controlled Flying Sphere:

...I thought I should check it out. What a fun surprise for me! It will get to my grandson eventually, but I think I'll just test it out a while longer. Flying remote control planes was never this much fun!

Perfect for the young enthusiast

Comments about Gyroscopic Remote-controlled Flying Sphere:

It looks very safe for small fingers; however those small fingers will have trouble with the very small on/off button.

Too fragile

By Grandad

from Memphis,TN

Verified Buyer

Comments about Gyroscopic Remote-controlled Flying Sphere:

Kids enjoyed flying them had lots of laughs but to tell the truth on the first flight the very fragile cage broke on one of the gyro's the other one broke the next day. The charger works by plugging the gyro into the battery powered remote, one of the gyro's stopped charging on the third use. (We purchased two.) Although they were cheap I think I would invest in something else.

    Exceeded expectations!

    By Grandma NeeNee

    from Salt Lake City, UT

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Grandson loved it
    • Worked as advertised

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Indoor toy

      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.
