Instead of jeopardizes the safety of our airways, get your little guy or girl one of these up-cycled hovercrafts and watch them drag race down the street without having to worry about taking down an overhead aircraft.

“Up-cycling and re-inventing old products is what the world needs” – Erik Torstensson, Inventor of Strawbees

If they get run over– so what? They’re basically made from trash in the first place. The hovercrafts boast a max speed of 25 mph and can be put back together and modified in a seemingly endless series of combinations.

So instead of wasting your money on a drone, do some basic engineering with the kiddo and sit back and watch as they enjoy the fruits of their labor.
