Screw RC planes… I want an RC robotic superhero
This thing is just super duper fantastic. From the product description:
Flight characteristics: Great! This is due to the low weight to surface area and that it has a high wing like a Piper cub with a low center of gravity. In addition, he has plenty of vertical tail surfaces due to the double side bodies; which adds to the stability. He takes off by being thrown or by standing upright in a stand and lands on his belly skids.
Thrust: The RcSuperhero has about 6 pounds of thrust; this allows for vertical take off.
RcSuperhero Package Includes: laser-cut foam, substructure materials, control horns, a plywood motor mount, 2 sizes of rubber bands, carbon fiber fabric strands, two 4mm square arm spars and other various carbon fiber sizes, a picassa photo build album with captions, materials list, and e-support materials (directions and tech. info).
