We have seen lots of flying RC (remote control) toy that were made in both holicopter shape or animal shape like birds. However, this new Bald Eagle RC from Hammacher is totally awesome RC with its wide wings spread with eager expression to strike its prey!
This is the remote controlled bald eagle with a 9 1/2′ wingspan that catches the wind for broad, soaring turns (Play Video). It is powered by a gimbal-mounted engine and propeller that provides nimble, multi-directional vector movement which replicates the bird of prey’s agile turns and dives. The natural curvature of the nylon/polyester wings creates an airfoil that provides lift for the carbon fiber frame and wing struts.
The transmitter controls the eagle up to 100′ away; trim controls allow fine adjustment to left, right, up, and down thrust of the propeller. Once basic soaring is mastered, it can also perform loops and with just the right touch of the throttle, it can even hover in-place against the wind. The included rechargeable lithium battery enables flights up to eight minutes and recharges easily from the included charger in 20 minutes; transmitter requires eight AA batteries.
This amazing Bald Eagle remote control is a must have gadget for anyone who love flying RC. If you want one, Bald Eagle RC is available at Hammacher for $499.95. It’s not cheap, but it’s would a fun toy to own.
