The Volta Flyer is the world’s first solar-powered DIY airplane kit

Volta Flyer

ToyLabs has introduced the world’s first do-it-yourself airplane kit for children that uses solar light as fuel to fly. Now kids will enjoy a long-lasting flight of their airplane kit that is built with ultra-light and eco-friendly materials.

The Volta Flyer does not need batteries to function, instead of that, it comes housing a flexible silicon solar panel that requires only 90 seconds to be charged under sunlight and powers a propeller located in the back side of the airplane. Even there’s a button that boosts up the power of the propeller in launch once it has been hand-lunch into the air.

Besides entertaining and keeping the children active while playing with it outdoors, the Volta Flyer will also motivate them to use their tiny hands to built it up. To build the airplane kit is not required the use of glue but just some motivation. If your child fails to patch-up pieces there’s a printed manual of use with instructions and also some information about flight technology and solar technology.

Volta Flyer solar-powered airplane kit is available to pre-order on the crowdfunding site KickStarter for $40. Once the funding campaign powers manufacturing of the toy, the makers will start shipping it starting by this December. Unfortunately, ToyLabs currently ships only to the United States.
