Air Hogs Hoverblade

Air Hogs took another swing at the spin copter game again with the Hoverblade. It looked a lot more like a monocopter than their previous efforts, but once again, it just had up & down control.

The lone gootube video of it showed a bad horizontal oscillation. It's almost like they tried a monocopter, but after getting nowhere with it, went back to the standard vertically controlled spinner.

While somewhat surprising no-one has ever commercialized Marcy 1, miniaturizing it enough to make it practical for the toy market might be too difficult. The motor size might be the limiting factor. There may not be materials strong yet light enough to achieve the same slow motion in a smaller size.
