    Air Swimmers

    Anyone ever heard of air swimmers? Heres a page I've found. They have an rc flying shark and clown fish. I've read about them and watched the video online. Just wondering if anyone had ever used one.

    RE: Air Swimmers

    The LHS has(had) one. Neat concept but the controls need improvement. Anyway, it needs to be filled with pure helium , add the battery and go. There is a small gondola(receiver&battery) the rides on a track under the fish/shark. This changes the CG when you press up or down and forces it to climb or dive. All forward movement is made by the moving tail. The remote buttons are killers on your fingers. Would need a better remote of figure out a way to put it on a real transmitter.
    The swimmers do take to display hooks very well and this one was skewered the other day and needs to be patched.
    Fun if you have the room for it. Watch out for knock-offs....they are really cheap and just don't work.
