This totally wind-powered kite that looks and flies like a real helicopter is a mainstay product in the "kite" category and thrills and excites aviation lovers of all ages with its science-oriented, fun-to-fly, simply fascinating flight. Using only the wind as a power source, the rotors create the lift that carries the helicopter into the air. The copter will hover or do touch-and-go landings, and can perform 360-degree spins and barrel rolls once the pilot has a few hours of practice.

Is it a kite or a chopper? The answer is both. Rotors atop this lightweight helicopter spin and lift the kite when the wind blows. A kite string attached to the chopper allows a user to guide the craft as it wrestles with the wind.
