The good news is that you don’t need Tony Stark levels of funding to get your hands on one of these remote control flying ‘superheros’ which, and let’s be honest here, are most likely as close as any of us are going to get to human flight. But it probably wouldn’t hurt to have his level of technical expertise since they’re only available as unassembled kits. True do-it-yourselfers will probably just opt to buy the PDF plans for $19.95 (for both the 75-inch and 57-inch versions) but you can also get the majority of the pre-cut parts in a kit for $295.
The final build weighs in at just 3 pounds and since the motor has ~6 pounds of thrust it can actually do a standing takeoff, like a real superhero would… assuming there are such things as real superheros. And because of its oversized control surfaces it’s apparently very easy to fly, even for novices. Which is a good thing because seeing it careen all over the sky would most likely not strike fear into evildoers.
