A Flying, Fire Breathing Dragon Is Only $60K Away


Game Of Thrones mania has rekindled our collective desire for real life dragons, so it’s not really a surprise that Hammacher Schlemmer teamed up with Rick Hamel to offer his insanely awesome, flying, fire breathing RC dragons.

With a 9 foot wingspan, a top speed of 70 MPH and the ability to belch a 3-foot flame, this isn’t a plane painted to look like a dragon, it’s a dragon built like a plane.

Sure, it’s going to cost you, but 60K is chump change to most Westerosi leaders.

The official description and a video of this monster in action are after the break.

This is the remote controlled jet-powered dragon that soars through the air at up to 70 mph and belches propane-powered flame when on the ground. Proving its prowess before take-offs or after successful raids, the dragon’s LED eyes can be commanded to glow red while it emits a fiery 3′ blast of flame from a cleverly concealed (and flight-disabled) propane tank and igniter built into its toothy maw. A miniature turbine engine built into the beast’s chest provides thrust that exits the rear at 500 mph, and uses 1/2 gallon of jet aircraft fuel or kerosene for 10 minute flights. With a head that swivels in the direction of turns, the dragon can climb and dive via wing ailerons and elevators built into its V-tail rudder, controlled with the 2.4GHz radio remote. Four clawed feet each house a 3″-diam. rubber wheel for braking and steering while on the ground. Its aerodynamic outer shell is constructed from a Nomex core sandwiched between two layers of epoxy glass with internal structural formers made from high-grade plywood for lightweight and optimal flight performance. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply. Please call 1-800-227-3528 for details. 9′ L x 9′ W x 20″ H.
