When we first caught sight of Plantraco's Butterfly — a remote-controlled plane designed to be flown indoors — we knew we wanted one. Heck, we wanted a whole fleet of them. But at $239 a pop, we had to do our best to keep our credit card safely tucked in our back pocket. Now that it's been reviewed by DistracTech, we're tempted once more. The review confirms everything we hoped — and feared — the Butterfly would be. Yes, it's lightweight, agile and capable of flitting effortlessly around your living room. And, yes, the balsa wood and paper wings are fragile; crash this a few times and you'll be gluing it back together. Of course, that's all the more reason to pick up a fleet, instead of just one.
