First seen in Halo 3, the AV-14 Attack VTOL Hornet is an indoor flying helicopter lifted by a pair of gyroscopic propellers. It features stability and precision speed control. Operated by a Tri-band infrared control selector, the Hornet can be switched from A to B to C bands to fly with two other Hornets simultaneously. The remote control is powered by six AA batteries and the Hornet itself runs on a rechargeable Li-Poly battery. "The Halo 3 R/C Hornet is faithful representation of the AV-14 Attack VTOL Hornet found in Microsoft's Halo Universe," Anthony Pinkett, account executive at Productivity PR, told TDmonthly. Launch date: October 2009.
