NEW YORK, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 163-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The 9 1/2' Remote Controlled Bald Eagle, an engine and propeller-powered prodigious avian that soars up to 100' in the air.

The eagle's 9 1/2' wingspan creates an airfoil that catches the wind to provide lift and enable broad turns. The 9 1/2' Remote Controlled Bald Eagle's engine weighs less than one ounce yet it generates more than 30X its weight in thrust to replicate the bird of prey's rapid dives and powerful soaring.

"The Remote Controlled Bald Eagle performs swift loops and it even hovers in-place against the wind like a real eagle," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager, Fred Berns.

The transmitter trim controls provide precise adjustment of the propeller to move the eagle left, right, up, or down in mid-flight. Made from a carbon fiber frame with a rip stop nylon and polyester body, the eagle can be flown in moderate winds up to 10 mph and it withstands turbulent landings.

The 9 1/2' Remote Controlled Bald Eagle is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $499.95. For more information about this product, please visit www.hammacher.com/11827 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com.
