    For $40, it better. I bet it does though. They have a ton of RC flying toys there. Mostly little copters, but I don't see why they wouldn't have a flying plane.

    Yeah, no thanks. That's pricey even for a mini RC plane, you can get them cheaper.

    wow, a mini RC plane, that's awesome!

    could you imagine the fun flying it into the autobots set up in the back yard haha, or better yet, fly it through your neighbors barbecue party.

    its the ultimate decepticon!

    did everyone else fail to see the two propellers on the back?

    for the lazy people

    The battle has begun!
    The battle takes flight between the DECEPTICONS™ and AUTOBOTS™! This RC plane is realistically designed based on the movie TRANSFORMERS and delivers a fun flying experience.

    * Digital Proportional throttle plus left/right controls for precision aerial manuevers
    * Micro-sized so it's ideal for use in most backyards; landing gear lets you take off/land like a pro
    * 150-foot range for operation in open outdoor areas with speeds up to 18.6mph (30km/hr)
    * Controller recharges the plane when not in use and requires 6 "AA" batteries (not included)


    What's in the box

    * Star Scream Micro Flyer with detachable landing gear
    * Transmitter
    * Antenna
    * Two spare propellers
    * User's guide

    I was hoping they were gonna sneak an all plastic Masterpiece Starscream into the States, Alternators-style.

    :(

    Is that really the paint/logo scheme Starscream will have in the movie? If so, then there's something else that has just really pissed me off. WTF with the Decepticon logo at an angle? I KNOW Starscream won't be that SHINY.

    I like Radio Shack, but only for their electronics supply areas (where lese can you buy a 5 ohm resistor on such short notice?). Now that's going by the wayside as they put in all these different COMPAQ and SPRINT booths in the store.

    Ah, the good 'ole days, when Radio Shack sold electronic equipment and the term G1 referred to a hole in the game Batteship.

    Well you see, air is a substance, like water. The shape of the wings cause air to flow over them in a specific way when the plane moves forward. Air moves faster over the top of the wing, causing low pressure above the wing and higher pressure under it. This force is 'lift', enabling the plane to fight the force of gravity as long as it keeps moving forward with enough speed.

    Or did you mean how does that toy fly? :)
