Kyosho's Robo Hopper Hops into Our Faces, Pectorals and Hearts

Illustration for article titled Kyosho's Robo Hopper Hops into Our Faces, Pectorals and Hearts

We have just realized our lives are far from complete. Please do not be shocked, we also thought blogging for a living was the abstract definition of self-completion. Apparently not, the Robo Hopper, an RC flying robot fashioned like our lovable buddy Asimo, has made us realize we need a flying robot/astronaut toy to complete us.

The little spaceman is, an impressively small, 6" in height and the package includes a 2.4GHz 2-channel transmitter. The device will run on four alkaline batteries and will be available in time for Christmas festivities this year for 10,290 yen ($89.80). If we can't go to the moon, at least our radio controlled brethren can live our dreams for us—fly, little fella. Fly! [ Product Page via Sci Fi Tech]

DISCUSSION

This would be extremely cool (which surprisingly enough it isn't given the 2.4 GHz config.) if it was more than two channels. The two channel helicopter (Picoo Z and the like) are old and tired now. On with the Walkera 5G6 or 4#3... essentially the same size as these 2 channel jobbers but with 4 channels.
