UFO to squash remote-controlled bugs

Don't bother with pesky RC insects--get one of these instead

We still don't understand the overwhelming popularity of remote-controlled mini-choppers , mosquitos and other annoying flying objects . But if you absolutely must have one, we say go all the way.

The "Four-Motor Remote Control UFO" by Hammacher Schlemmer has a lightweight carbon fiber frame and a "gyro-stabilization system" that allows "precise control through hairpin turns, rolls, pitches, and hovering, in addition to yaw and throttle." And with a 300-foot range and nearly 2 feet in diameter, this UFO will squash those flying insects like, well, bugs.

That is, until the " Flytech Dragonfly " comes on the market. When that happens, you're on your own.
