Most little boys and girls dream of being able to fly, from kites to airplanes. Some even attempt the feat themselves, much to the chagrin of their parents. While it’s not conducive for the Gross Domestic Product to have every child who dreams of flying become a pilot, it is still possible for them to live their dream on a smaller scale.

Today’s remote control (RC) industry provides the opportunity for everyone to live their dreams of flying. At every skill level, from novice to expert, dreamers can turn their childhood fascination into a reality.

This holiday season, Hobbytron.com is selling the Palm-Z RC mini airplane from Silverlit. Projected to be the hottest new RC plane of the year, the Palm-Z mini airplane can perform tricky acrobatic stunts in any living room, bedroom or office, from the palm of one’s hand.

“People can literally take off with the Palm-Z,” said Jim Royer, president of HobbyTron.com. “We’ve seen families and offices create all kinds of obstacle courses in their homes and workspaces for hours and hours of fun.”

With a wingspan of only 8 inches and weighing less than 10 grams, the Palm-Z is a fully functional, indoor plane operating on a two-channel infrared control system. Its slow flying design allows for superior control and stability in an enclosed environment.

The Palm-Z is specially priced at $29.95 and comes in three colors ??" Green Wave, Orange Fire and Blue Air ??" each with a designated radio frequency, allowing for up to three planes to be flown in the same area at any given time.

“The best part about this plane,” said Royer, “is anyone can pick it up and almost immediately become an ace.”
