Here's a novel way to make the most of your valuable time on the coach - the Draganflyer III remote controlled helicopter delivers full aerial manoeuvrability and high-speed flying for around five minutes at a time with the option of adding a micro-video Eyecam that can be watched live on television or recorded through a VCR of digital video camera. The battery operated helicopter has distinct advantages in size and weight over petrol driven models - three piezo gyros provide stability and the 70 cm long, lightweight carbon fibre and high impact nylon frame is means that when you inevitably crash land, the Draganflyer III will survive the impact.

Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, the Draganflyer III is available in ten different frequencies so you can race simultaneously and the range is said to be limited only by your eye-sight. Full assembly of the model takes 30 minutes and flight times can be increased with the optional tether cord. Available online at, the Draganflyer III costs US$749 and the 2.4GHz Eyecam color video camera is US$149 extra.
