Remember the radio-controlled 3-channel Micro Mosquito that we wrote about last year? It has now been released in version 3.0, featuring orange LED eyes and an extra pair of legs.
Utilising patented twin rotor technology combined with a horizontal tail rotor and proportional radio control, this micro chopper is exceptionally stable and easy-to-fly in a remarkably small room. The controls are so precise you can let it take off from the palm of your hand, hover and descend, turn left, right, forwards and backwards under full three dimensional control, and land it wherever you choose.
Here’s a short video clip of the R/C Mosquito in action:
The mosquito 3.0 comes with a helicopter launch pad that also acts as a convenient portable charger with LED indicator and auto shut off facility, up to 7 minutes flying time can be achieved from a 20-30 minute charge. Incorporating a unique external drive system for sensational smooth flights, this miniature six legged flying insect is sure to have both gadget and flying enthusiasts ‘bitten by the bug’ for fantastic desk top fun.
