WowWee FlyTech Bladestar Flying R/C Toy

The Hong Kong-based WowWee company has announced the launch of their FlyTech Bladestar, a radio-controilled indoor flying machine that is said to “change helicopter flight as we know it today”.

The first flying toy with sensor-based navigation, the FlyTech Bladestar flyer glides through the air using two wings that spin with helicopter-like movement.

Built-in infrared sensors allow the flyer to detect and avoid ceilings, walls, and other obstacles autonomously. Innovative design coupled with infrared technology also allow for dueling capabilities, enabling two FlyTech Bladestar flyers to faceoff in aerial combat.

Here’s a video clip of the WowWee FlyTech Bladestar in action:

Made from ultra-light, flexible materials, the FlyTech Bladestar flyer is designed to be crash resistant. The flyer features a three-channel digital infrared controller that can be set to two different flight modes: autopilot mode, and RC (remote controller) mode. In autopilot mode, it will fly autonomously using its sensor-based navigation to avoid obstacles and ceilings, and users can even guide the flyer down a hallway or around a room using their hands. In RC mode, the user has complete control of the flyer via the throttle to control height and power and the directional pad to navigate.

The WowWee FlyTech Bladestar is available from Amazon for $46.72 . You will also find more information about this cool new toy in the official news release.

  1. Nice remote control. I bought one all-in-one unit, but could never get the codes to work. I hope this one is easier. Anyhow, it looks big enough to be controlling a whole satellite up there, not just a TV, DVD and cable setup in someone’s lounge room.

  2. Nice article.
