Modelled on Stingrays, the beautiful ocean inhabitants that appear to 'fly' through the water, here's another highly innovative RC flying toy from Silverlit.

Silverlit are perhaps best known for their tiny range of helicopters, but that's by no means all they offer and the Stingray is one of a new line of unusual craft that offer fascinating and fun flight experiences. This unique ray shaped indoor aircraft is capable of some hugely impressive stunts and flight manoeuvres, including vertical spins and torque rolls. Pinpoint precision landings are also possible, thanks to the advanced level of control offered.

It also has a 'slow flying' feature for extra control in smaller spaces indoors that makes it exceptionally simple to control, but for larger areas, there's also a special booster which increases the range at which the Stingray can be flown.

Featuring ultra-lightweight construction and a tiny battery that charges through its tri-band infra-red controller, the Stingray is packed with advanced technology to make it one of the most fun and innovative new flying toys around.

  • Super wide infrared remote control
  • Slow fly feature for small indoor areas
  • Li-Poly batteries for extended flying time
  • Simple and convenient recharging through controller
  • Available in 3 colours
  • Tri-band remote control
  • Booster feature for extended flight range
  • Available in 3 colours

Please note:Sadly we are unable to determine which colour you will receive

This was an unsure buy, by that i mean i wasnt sure wether or not it was worth it.

And it is worth it!!! This little RC flying stingray is one of the best flying toys i have bought (i also own several mini helecopters and planes) and this has shot straight to the top of my favourites list.

OK, at first it is very hard to control, but once your used to the controls it gets easier to fly. Eventually you dont even need to think about flying it, you just hold the control and it seems to fly like a dream.

[HINT: first time flyers might want to try flying in a larger space. I used an empty hall at my local community centre. The reason I say this is its practically impossible to fly in confined spaces at first, but once you have done a bit of practise in a larger area you can pretty much fly anywhere.]

And i bet one of your questions about this item is 'is it durable?'. I was thinking the same thing.

Mine has been crashed into walls, taken out of flight by a very annoyed kitten several times (repeatedly flying over her head), and even been lay on by that same kitten. It is still in pristine condition and still flies like its striaght out the box.

Overall, a well recomended toy. Im19 and I love it! This is literally fun for any person of any age. My mid 40's dad likes it, and even my grandad enjoys a quick fly!!!

10/10, five stars all the way!!! and its a steal at that price, buy in confidence and enjoy many hours of flight.

Once you get used to the way it flies the stingray is great fun and tougher than it looks (didn't think the landing gear would last the first crash!). Haven't mastered any stunt flying yet, but doing smooth circuits in confined spaces puts a smile on your face.

Can't give it 5 stars because mine can't do right hand turns no matter how much you trim it, this is very disappointing to begin with but you get used to the challenge.

Warning! Not being able to pick the colour you receive also means you can't pick the control band. If you order two or more from play you may not be able to fly them together if they're all the same band.
