Kyosho Velociraptor Robot Future Of Combat Robots

Sure, they're just toys, but they beg the question: why do the thought-controlled combat robots of the future need to be humanoid bodies?

This product is an RC model that reproduces the biological dinosaur depiction of the small carnivorous dinosaur "Velociraptor". As a real figure, the "scale pattern" is expressed from the head to the "tail" that occupies half of its size, and the sharp "key claws" with large limbs are reproduced. In addition, the triangular "saw teeth" of a ferocious carnivorous dinosaur and the mouth with a stretched tongue are decorated with a bright red LED light, and when the switch is turned on, the body (joint link) is left and right. ) Can be twisted and controlled with the movement of the tail.

 In addition, the 2.4GHz, 5-channel controller is designed to be reminiscent of a "fossil" that sleeps underground with a record of its struggle for tens of thousands of years. When the power is turned on, the fossil eyes shine, and the full function of front, back, left and right is equipped with a "demonstration button" in the center button of the controller and the back of the head of the main body, and a "demonstration" with an auto-cut function is executed. The main unit has a built-in 3.7V 1200mAh lithium battery and can be charged with a USB charging cable.
