The Flying Pterodactyl Realistically Flaps Its Wings and Screeches

The Flying Pterodactyl is a radio-controlled pterodactyl, developed by Ohio-based PaulG Toys, that actually flies by flapping its wings and emits a terrifyingly realistic pterodactyl screech. Its eyes light up red when it's powered up, making it even more menacing.

The Flying Pterodactyl's battery works for 15 to 20 minutes of flight time, and can be swapped for a fully-charged optional extra battery on the spot. The bird has an operational range of 500 meters. If and when it crashes upon the death of its battery, its wing and leg joints pop off so they don't get irreversibly damaged.

Of course, if you're lucky enough to own a remote-controlled pterodactyl, you also want to capture people's terrified reactions. You can do this by getting a GoPro camera harness with your robotic flying reptile.

Currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, the Flying Pterodactyl is targeted towards amateur drone enthusiasts with a twisted sense of humor.
