R&D is an important part of product development. Toys, just like all other products, go through a development process and many iterations and prototypes are created before the final product is released.
This is an early prototype of a VTOL toy (patent #20060226281) before its final iteration.
The ducted fan units are designed to be movable from a vertical thrust position to a horizontal thrust position. The design allows for rapid take-offs, fast forward flight, and extreme maneuverability.
This is a 3D printed prototype of the unit. It was used for development of the final product.
