Fun way to pass on messages

The ZFlyer Hand Command Flying Machine puts RC control right into your hands with an innovative and unique control system. Hovering just above the ground in normal flight, when you place your hand underneath him, it will follow your lead so you can control the flight with hand gestures. It's almost like that game where you have to keep the football from touching the ground except Hand Command won't hit the ground, it will stop just short of it. You can actually throw it a short distance before he goes back to level flight and so have the possibility of passing messages both in the laboratory and office. Featuring auto stabilizing rotor technology, Hand Command is simple to fly.
