Remember the ZFlyer R/C Astronaut from earlier this year? This looks like a mini version of that radio controlled toy, but this one is sold in pair.
The goal here is to hit your opponent with laser beams, just like all those battling helicopters that have been popping up in all shapes and sizes lately.
This Dueling Space Marines Copter Set gets you a set of two mini r/c helicopters with infra-red laser tag style battle action. Take to the air from the palm of your hand then use the shoulder button on the remote unleash a plasma blast your opponent copter. Each shot causes the gun of your space marine to flash with simulated gunfire. The first hit causes your enemy to spin. The second makes the enemy copter lose power… the third cuts rotor power completely as your opponent plummets to the ground and you gloat in victory.
