This is probably one of the most bizarre remote controlled gadgets you are ever likely to come across! Why anyone in their right mind would want to own an RC housefly is quite beyond me. That said, I don’t doubt that the scope for comedy moments (landing it on Aunt Agnus’s slice of fruit cake just as she’s about to tuck in, for example) will appeal to many.
The RC Housefly uses the same co-axle rotor system as the Picoo Z to ensure that the craft is not only relatively stable in flight but that, thanks to the lack of torque, its also far easier to control than single rotor helicopters. This device comes without a tail rotor (I mean, when was the last time you saw a housefly with a rotor blades and a tail rotor?).
Is it flyspray proof... if we had one Mandrake would be sure to give it a real good dousing of the stuff!

Flyspray yes. Probably wouldn't react to well to drowning tho...

hahaha Aunt Agnus. I wonder how big these things actually are... I mean, flys aren't exactly all that large.
