Most flying robots require an enormous amount of outdoor space. The Lightstar can be flown indoors and out. It's a lightweight remote-control foam-and-plastic helicopter. The push of a button makes it move left, right, up or down. And it's remarkable easy to maintain a level hover—a feat that's impossible for most flying toys, and necessary for a dogfight, when two Bladestars duke it out. The best part is that it's light enough that it can run into most breakables without fear of knocking them over. The Lighstar hits stores this summer, and is an update to last year's Bladestar, with added UFO-like lights. While we haven't played with the Lighstar yet, if it is anything like the Bladestar, you can expect a fairly frustrating battery life (the Bladestar conks out after just 5 minutes of flight) and foam wings that are extremely fragile.
