These aluminum airplanes are ready for flight from sunrise to sunset. As light hits the solar panel wings, the propellers spin and the LED position lights light up. The planes use photovoltaic solar cells to generate electricity from sunlight. This electricity drives the miniature motors that turn the propellers. The stronger the light, the faster the prop will turn.
The solar cell will also work under a regular lightbulbs and halogen spotlight, but not under fluorescent or neon light tubes, energy-saving light bulbs or LEDs. The solar cells that are used are encapsulated within a flexible polymer approved for space applications, making them exceptionally reliable. Exceptional quality and craftsmanship, made in Germany. For ages 14 and up, some assembly is required.
