Silverlit iWings: Wing Flapping R/C Aeronaut

Silverlit iWings

We have seen the iBird and the iFairy. Now the Silverlit toy manufacturer has released yet another radio-controlled wing flapping thing, this time in the shape of a futuristic aeronaut.

Many scientists and engineers have attempted to create machines that mimic the way a bird flies with varying degrees of success, but now Silverlit has perfected mini-ornithopter technology to create some of the smallest flapping wing RC models in existence.

Here’s a video clip of the Silverlit iWings in action:

Packed with state of the art technology, i-Wings joins the i-Fairy and i-Bird as one of the latest generation of RC flying toys that provide an unparalleled level of control and stability both indoors and out. Simple and fun to fly, i-Wings is ready to take flight straight out of the box and ultra-tough to survive the roughest landings.

Controlled via an infra-red transmitter that also charges the built-in Li-Poly battery this is one of this year’s most exciting flying toys!

Features:

  • Three colour choices
  • Realistic wing flapping
  • Mimics bird flight
  • 4 x AA’ size batteries required (not included)
  • 1pc 3.7V rechargeable battery required (not included)

  1. I got one for £14 from Maplin a few years ago. Cannot see why this hasn’t succeeded, it was amazing. Suffered some damage from a heat source but I haven’t binned it. Battery (rechargeable) was included.
