…It’s Things Thursday: Flying F@#k?

Flying Fuck

Thanks to a clever play on words, anyone can give a Flying F@#k.

That’s because the remote controlled Flying F@#k helicopter comes with an inappropriate body, but flies just like a regular helicopter, allowing you to send your Flying F@#k all over the room and helping you to spread your message far and wide: I now give a Flying F@#K!

…It’s TGI Friday: Hanna In A Choppa?

Hanna In A Choppa

Hanna In A Choppa is a simple yet fun helicopter game where you must fly your choppa around and land near the flag using only your keyboard.

The controls are simple, the orange on black design is fantastic, the level designs are varied and imaginative and the developer threw in a few inside jokes to keep things interesting. (Wait till you get to level 21!)

What more could you want from an after Thanksgiving time waster?

…It’s Things Thursday: Draganflyer X6?

Draganflyer X6

The Draganflyer X6 “is a remotely operated, unmanned, miniature helicopter designed to carry wireless video cameras and still cameras”.

It’s also one of the most bad-add R/C copters ever made.

Draganflyer X6 Specs

Features include a six rotor co-axial configuration that makes the Draganflyer X6 compact, stable, and powerful, a full carbon fiber folding frame that also makes it light and easy to carry, and 11 on-board sensors that make the X6 the easiest copter to fly in its class, including three gyros, three accelerometers, three magnetometers, one barometric pressure sensor, and one GPS receiver.

Loose radio connection?

No problem; the Draganflyer X6 simply lands itself and waits for you to return.

Loose an engine?

Again, no problem. The Draganflyer is able to continue flying, even with one engine entirely out of commission.

With camera options that range from anti-vibration mounts and digital still camera holds to HD video, low light, thermal infrared and micro video cameras, there’s even a payload option to match every need.

James Bond, eat your heart out.

…It’s Things Thursday: Black Stealth 3-Channel R/C Helicopter?

Black Stealth RC Copter

I’ve played with one of these small R/C copters before, so I can vouch for the fun that can be had with one of them, but ThinkGeek’s Black Stealth 3-Channel R/C Helicopter looks like it opens up a whole new world of possibilities with full 3-channel control.

Unlike most small R/C copters (like the one that I played with) which can only be controlled on two channels (up and down and rotate right and left), the ThinkGeek copter gives you full 3 channel control over up and down, rotate right and left, and move forwards and backwards.

In addition to the extra channel of control, the ThinkGeek copter features a dial trim adjuster (rather than the buttons that you find on most copter controls) for precise trim adjustments, and counter-rotating blades for amazing hover ability and stability.

The copter charges in just 10 minutes, and you get a full 7 minutes of play time out of a single charge, so you’ll never be left empty handed, and you can even change channels and fly with a friend, since each features two different channels that you can program it to.

All that fun for just $29.99?

I’ll take two.

When President Bush is on the move, he brings along over 650 people, three planes, two helicopters, and two motorcades of 20 vehicles each.

And one Travelocity gnome.
