Essential Info

Most remote-control airplanes are heavy and bulky and require acres of open space to fly and turn properly. But the Butterfly Indoor Flyer is the smallest and lightest ready-to-fly RC airplane available. At 3.6 grams, this delicate plane is small and light enough to maneuver around your living room. The included four-channel transmitter provides precise control for tight turns and slow flying. Your airspace needs only to be 12 feet by 16 feet. This tiny remote-control plane is powered by the included lithium-polymer battery. The receiver is powered by four AA batteries (sold separately). Please note: This delicate aircraft is not a toy!

    The Butterfly Indoor Flyer remote-control airplane has a beautifully constructed delicate airframe along with a carbon-fiber propeller, a Swiss-engineered gearbox, and a tiny 4mm coreless motor. Control the RC airplane with the transmitter's two joysticks. The transmitter also includes a built-in portable charger for the remote-control plane's lithium polymer battery.

    This remote-control airplane kit comes with the freeware FMS R/C Flight Simulator and a computer interface cord, so you can plug the transmitter into your PC and learn to fly your RC airplane on your computer, crashing as many times as you want without doing any real damage. After you have mastered flying by radio control on the simulator, you'll be ready to try the remote-control airplane in the real world.

    The HingeAct magnetic self-centering actuator weighs only 0.22 grams, but is powerful enough to control the Butterfly precisely, providing an amazing 64 steps of full proportional resolution. A flashing light and audible tones let you know the status of the receiver in operation. Take the Butterfly Indoor Flyer with you to work, school, or on vacation. The included aluminum briefcase protects the remote-control airplane and transmitter from damage in transit.

    Excellent! MY 23 yr old son, computer engineer, just loves it and all guys he shows it to. He's the "first on the block" though.

    the butterfly is absolutely wonderful. what a fun and clever flyer.
    MANUEL -- campbell, CA   12/16/2006
    really small plane and an incredibly small motor and all other electronics. i'm still not good enough so i have quite a few crashes whenever i fly it. the most common result from crashing is the battery falls off. i was bold one time, crashed and ripped the rupperassembly off but was able to krazy glue it back to normal. it still flys fine. if you loved the rubber band balsa planes or gliders then you will love this plane. it is one of those planes but you get to control it.

    I bought it as a gift for my dad who flies RC planes. He loves it!

    I got this for my husband who is a pilot and loves to fly (the real thing!). He has had such fun w/it. We can take it anywhere and he can fly it whenever he wants.
