So here’s a neat fidget spinner I found over on Thingiverse, it’s a drone style spinner complete with propellers on top and bottom!.
New review by me of one of my favorite things, RC toys…
“Drones are the big thing now and it seems every helicopter and quadcopter is a drone and that’s wrong I think, but there’s nothing I can do about it, drones are popular and they sell. Anyway, today for review I’ve got quadcopter or drone from DBPower and it’s called the Hawkeye-II and it has a camera built-into that you can actually connect to your phone and see through so it’s like you’re in it flying along. I love remote control products, especially those that fly and this one needs some improvement. Read on to learn more…”
I wouldn’t mind playing with one of these.. I love R/C stuff, especially helicopters, but I’ve never played with a drone type before and this one even has a camera.. The only thing is I don’t think I like the run time, charge for almost an hour and only get 8 minutes of flight time..
Swann Security, the global leader in security monitoring solutions, introduces the Xtreem QuadForce Video Drone, a RC helicopter with onboard color video camera. It’s the first product from the new Xtreem™ collection. Fly to new levels as the QuadForce uses the latest 2.4GHz frequency for a strong signal indoors or outdoors. The QuadForce is available at Fry’s stores nationwide for $89.99.
“We decided to change things up a bit by launching the new Xtreem™ range of remote-controlled toys,” says Jeremy Stewart, Vice President, Marketing of Swann. “Our team of driven, committed and creative engineers worked endlessly to design the QuadForce. It’s the perfect toy for anyone looking to graduate from a traditional RC helicopter to something more challenging.”
QuadForce is designed to fly in any direction with its 4-axis and lightweight yet durable construction. The Drone’s 2.4GHz frequency allows it to fly up to 330ft/ 100m for a unique 360-degree flying experience that makes a RC helicopter seem outdated.
Record videos from the sky with the onboard color video camera and store it to the Micro SD card located in the undercarriage. QuadForce allows you to record 720p HD color resolution videos or images to capture more details and great lighting ranges. You can easily transfer the AVI (MJPEG) videos or JPEG images and share your favorites on different websites such as YouTube & Vimeo.
To get started simply add 4 alkaline AA batteries to the remote control and charge the chopper using the USB cable, which is included. After 50 minutes, let your imagination soar in any direction with 8 minutes aerial flying time per charge.
