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!
