Bionic Concepts - Powered Mechanical Wings Version 1.5 with backpack and brilliant LED Light Effects!! Opens to 4.5 feet wide at the flick of a switch! Available in electric or CO2 powered versions. These wings are the most durable of our line of mechanical wings due to the almost complete aluminum construction.
Wings are attached by 2 inch wide black leather straps with adjustable buckles and snap on connectors. With the wide straps the wings are comfortable and easy to put on and take off.
CO2 Version Info:
CO2 system on all wings have recently been upgraded. New custom miniature CO2 regulators are now included with all sets of CO2 powered wings. The new system reduces weight and increases efficiency without sacrificing power. No need to fill and refill air tanks. Simply screw in a co2 cartridge and you’re ready to go! Wings will open or close 40-50 times on just one 16 gram CO2 cartridge. 6 CO2 cartridges included with order.
Note: Due to the new CO2 regulator system these wings no longer come with the air tanks shown in the pictures. There is now very little visual difference between the electric and CO2 versions.
The main advantage to CO2 is speed. The wings will spring open and smoothly close shut. The electric version opens and closes slower. When you screw in a new cartridge you do not need to use the gas right away, you could wait a few hours before using the wings but do not leave them fully pressurized for long periods of time.
To obtain more cartridges find a local bike shop that sells “16 GRAM THREADED CO2 CARTRIDGES” or order them online. Check for shipping availability in your country. Sometimes companies will not ship CO2 cartridges over seas or across borders because they contain pressurized gas. A box of 20 CO2 cartridges can be bought for about $30 or less if you find a good supplier.
WARNING: NEVER unscrew a CO2 cartridge until it has been fully depleted. They are one time use only and once the tip has been pierced by screwing it in, it MUST be completely depressurized or used up before removing.
Electric Version Info:
Electric version requires 8 rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride AA batteries (NiMH). These types of batteries are commonly available everywhere. Any brand of NiMH AA batteries will work but 2000-2600 mah batteries last the longest (batteries and charger sold separately).
The wings are controlled by a hand held control pad. The electric version can work more than a hundred times before the batteries need to be recharged. The wings open smooth and steadily.
Generally the electric version is easier to use. The batteries are easy to find and recharging them is a simple process. Besides the lack of air tanks, the wings design is identical
Both wings attach to your back with 2 inch wide black leather straps and adjustable buckle. Options include: electric or CO2 Version, and optional foam padding for $50 extra.
NOTE: Flat panel light wrist guards shown in the pictures do not come with the wings. The customer asked for a pair of flat-light guards to be powered by the battery pack on the wings for the one in the pictures.
Standard construction time is 1-2 weeks.
