Here’s something you don’t see every day, a radio-controlled 9-inch “space surfer” that hovers in the air, spins 360 degrees, and moves left, right, backward and forward.
Capable of indoor or outdoor flights, the space surfer has dual propellers that generate enough thrust to send the device from a stationary position to 66-feet in the air without requiring a hand-launch.
The radio frequency remote control has proportional throttle and trim settings that allow it to be precisely controlled through climbs, descents, and turns.
The device is powered by a rechargeable battery that recharges via the included AC adapter. Remote has a 27 feet range and requires a 9-volt battery. Operates for 15 minutes after a 70-minute charge.
The R/C Hovering Space Surfer is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $89.95.
