Not that i know of, would love to know the pricing on these products though - that will really make or break them.

Do these have actual Radio Transmitters or do they use IR?

I would hate to think they are "indoor" only...yawn.

Yeah im more excited about the jump jet than anything else. Im sure the palm z jets will be great. But that extra channel makes all the diff. Under 60 would be wonderful but i doubt it. If they go higher than that i wont be getting one for a while.

i'm guessing the jump jet would be closer to 80-100 bucks. But 60 would be sweet.

My guess: (we should start a pool, the losers buy the winner a Jump Jet)

Jump Jet: 129.00
MicroFly: 19.00
Saucer: 69.00

You have to remember that these are some pretty sophisticated electronics, and there is really not much else out there like them.
Any other

the guesses keep getting lower, heheh

any ideas about how the JJ actually flies? it's essentially a helicopter, with no direct forward thrust, right? if so, what's the difference between the JJ and the Saucer, other than cosmetics?

Well if you look real close the saucer has the blades all pointing straight up...as the jump jet they are all angled.
