>> Hey I'm Tom Merritt, Editor from CNET.com here at CES 2008 taking a look at the WowWee Flytech Bladestar, sort of a successor to the Dragonfly, a remote control helicopter but with object avoidance, pretty cool. So you have your base unit here and this will also charge up the flying device; you've got your throttle on this side, your elevation meter in the middle and your controls for forward, back, side to side here, as well as a fire button. We'll get to what that's for in a little bit. Plug this in about 15 minutes, you'll charge this up, get about 7 minutes of flying time; this has optical or infrared sensors on 3 parts of it so that it can go up and down and avoid objects as well as interact with another flying machine. Also these Styrofoam blades here, a little flimsy but if you did break them they throw in a couple of extra in the pack for you so you've got some replacements and of course you can buy them if you go through them like potato chips or something. Let's try giving it a fly; I'm not a license pilot here but I think I may have figured it out. You have to set it with the charge light away from you, and then just kind of slowly get it going and get it out of the way, a little higher. It will go all the way up to the ceiling if you're not careful and then once it gets up there it will freefall and there it goes. The other one here, if it flies up into frame, can battle with that one using the infrared sensors and that's what the fire button is far. Once again those are the WowWee Flytech Bladestars, 49.99 available in February. At CES 2008 I'm Tom Merritt.
