Snelflight Jump Jet – R/C Micro Plane

Snelflight Jump Jet

The Jump Jet is a new R/C indoor plane that “combines the self-righting stability of fixed-wing planes with the hovering capability of helicopters”.

It can take off vertically and hover, then fly forwards, backwards, even sideways. It can swoop and dive just like a real jet plane, and then land on the palm of the hand!

Jump Jet offers what no other currently available model can – full three-axis controllability combined with extreme self-righting stability, all from minimal moving parts. This makes Jump Jet ideal for learning to fly rotorcraft. It has all the controls of a helicopter, but it is easier to fly.

You can view it in action in this video clip from the Toy Fair 2008:

There is no spinning rotor mechanism or exposed propellers to get bent and broken in a crash. Instead, four protected fans provide three dimensional vectored thrust and the highest-ever safety for indoor flying.

A triple axis gyroscope contributes to incredible stability and precise flying control. Experienced flyers can hone their skills indoors, independent of the weather.
