The most annoying thing about UFO sightings is that they're usually reported by redneck gas pump attendants who you wouldn't trust to fill up your car, let alone tell you a story. And why are the UFOs in question always 'kinda seegar shaped' with 'itty bitty rowsa-lights'? Probably because said spotters have just made the whole thing up in a futile attempt to flog a Polaroid of a hubcap dangling from a fishing line to the local rag, to pay for a new set of dungarees and some banjo lessons.

X-UFO Call us cynical, but we were getting mighty tired of this whole UFO business. But then the jaw-dropping X-UFO floated into Hangar Firebox and we were smitten all over again. This groundbreaking flying, er, thingy, is a truly innovative triumph of technological ingenuity, and it's guaranteed to have onlookers calling the MOD hotline, as it is unlike any other R/C vehicle ever to grace the skies.

X-UFO A stabilising gyroscope and four independent rotors are suspended on an ultra-light, yet durable carbon-fibre frame, giving the X-UFO astounding manoeuvrability, both indoors and out. You control the action with a 4-channel digital proportional transmitter that can operate the rechargeable X-UFO from up to 100 metres away - perfect for causing Orson Welles-style 'the Martians are coming' pandemonium.

X-UFO Once you get to grips with the controls you'll be able to make the X-UFO go left, right, up, down, forwards, backwards - it can even hover in a stationary position. Eerily alien it may be, but there's no room for extraterrestrials onboard as the centre of the craft houses a seriously hi-tech receiver and an advanced gyroscope to ensure inflight stability. This mysterious machine also boasts powerful coloured LEDs for psychedelic night flights.


You won't start sculpting mountains out of mashed potatoes or humming 'duh, ner, ner, nuh, ner' in the shower non-stop, but the X-UFO will take over your life, as it delivers close encounters of the fun kind each and every time it takes to the skies. Cosmic!

This X-UFO, is quite an amazing technology, that has been vanished all of the sudden. Is there any restriction from the CIA or other entity that thinks, it is against the security of the country, HaHaHa !! Can you tell me where I can buy this awesome toy??? Thanks.

It looks cool BUT you obviously know NOTHING about REAL UFO sightings. Actually the best unexplained UFO sightings are by educated, intelligent upstanding citizens. Your promotion of UFO hoaxing by buzzing and terrorizing people is completely irresponsible. Why don't you just play with your toys and leave the REAL UFO subject to the responsible adults.

Never fly one on top of a windy mountain. They go higher and higher until you can't see them and then they don't come down.

The x ufo is amazing it takes practise to learn how to fly it but it is worth while However do I don't recomend taking it to a barbeque as everyone will want a turn and probably crash it.

Its just turned dark the neighbours kids have gone to bed... a whirring noise starts up lights begin to flash and rise into the air. soon the object rises over the hedge towards the kiddies window and then hovers infront, suddenly the curtains open and all panic is let loose, the object then moves toward the window, a big scream is heard, the object then moves on as the kiddie runs around the house, the machine dissapears out of site only to return another day. Best fun i have had for years.
