RC specialist Flying Gadgets has declared Toy Fair 2015 its most successful to date having been "overwhelmed" by reactions to the world’s first voice-controlled quadcopter, X-Voice.

The X-Voice (£49.99) uses cutting-edge voice control technology and is pre-programmed with 16 different languages. It’s able to understand accents and dialects, and is virtually indestructible thanks to the flexible caging surrounding each of the four propellers.

Users can fine-tune flight using the 2.4ghz controller for added precision whilst speaking commands such as “take off”, “land”, “dancing” and “flip right/left/back/forward” into the supplied microphone headset.

“We are overwhelmed with the attention the Flying Gadgets X-Voice generated at Toy Fair last week," said MD Joshua Farleigh.

“Not only did the retailers get really excited about it, but the press interest has been off the scale, with BBC Click, the nationals and various high traffic tech sites such as Gizmag and PocketLint all giving it rave reviews.

"Buyers are impressed yet again that we’re bringing such innovative tech to UK shores, especially at such accessible prices."

Flying Gadgets also unveiled a new entry-level six-axis gyro quad at last week's Toy Fair with the X-Vision. The drone boasts first person view on-board so users can beam live footage through its HD camera to their Apple device attached to the 2.ghz remote control unit. 

Flying Gadgets will be showcasing these new units along with an assortment of new drones, helicopters, boats and licensed ride-on vehicles at next week’s Spring Fair and at New York Toy Fair in February.

The X-Voice and X-Vision go on sale in March 2015.
