Following up its Volta Racer release in 2013, Volta has now published news of its Volta Flyer product, set to soar throughout the sky fully powered by solar panels attached to the structure, no batteries required.
It takes 90 seconds for the Flyer to warm up, and allows 10 to 15 seconds of flight time should you run out of sunlight, helping ensure a safe and soft landing when in danger. Coming complete with a build-it-yourself kit, the product is further packaged with a breakaway wing, meaning that crashes shouldn't completely demolish the frame. But just in case something does go wrong, a second wing is included for free.
The whole product will set you back $40 and is currently sitting on Kickstarter with $9,034 pledged of a $39,000 goal, at the time of writing this article. You can order one for yourself here.
