It's made of styrofoam..Which I'm told is kinda how these things are made. It's held together with basically scotch and eletrical tape. They give you 2 extra blades for the plane, and the wheels are attached by little wires about what most toys come tied down in. They give it some sticker detail, uhm, says it reaches 150' in clear view, and can fly up to 18.6mph. It can launch by either rolling on ground on a windy day, or hand held and thrown against the wind. It requires 6 AA batteries, and you need to charge it by connecting the plane to the remote thing by this little wire. It's roughly 45$. If you're a hardcore collector, go for it. If you're undecided..well, it's a bit pricey for product, but, if it actually works, this could be fun..
