What You'll Get
Flying is a lot like having a staring contest: even with utter concentration, you’ll never be better at it than birds. Remotely evoke the ire of winged companions with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 to spend on remote-control toys and accessories from Parkflyers RC's online store.
Parkflyers' remote-control machines allow grounded pilots to re-create the thrill of zig-zagging aeroplanes in miniature form. The Mini Eagle chopper ($34.99) maintains its stable hover system thanks to a steel counterweight system and stays sturdy thanks to an aluminum chassis. Other copters under $100, such as the Syma S107 ($49.99), can help narrate the day's rush-hour movie-line traffic thanks to stabilizing coaxial rotors, high-intensity LED head and tail lights, and a lofty pinnacle altitude of 100 meters. Meanwhile, young pilots can start earning their wings with novice-level planes, and accomplished aviators may wish to commandeer a ready-to-fly air chariot. A wide variety of spare parts also await do-it-yourself repairpersons and battery collectors.
