It doesn’t have an engine . . .

And it’s not a car. But it does have a motor. Three, to be exact.

And if flies.

Indoors.

It’s my new favorite toy, a Bladerunner II RC helicopter. Click the link to see a video on their website.

It weighs around 50 grams, which I think rounds down to zero. That’s with the body, most of which I have cut away in the name of increased flight times.

I’m now getting a little over 10 minutes on a full charge of its onboard 300 mah Li-Po (that’s Lithium Polymer) battery. It takes close to an hour to recharge.

There’s a pretty active web forum for these things where they discuss a variety of modifications.

I got it a Circuit City for around $60.00.
