Designing duo Otto Dieffenbach and Ed Hanley have created radio-controlled planes that can look like your favourite comic book characters.

 A small start up company has produced a life-sized radio-controlled plane in the shape of Superman.

But if Superman isn't your favourite comic-book character, the company's website says: "If you can imagine it, we can make it fly."

They want to make the 'planes' catch people's attention and use them in a variety of circumstances, including advertising.

"We envision just about any character you can think of flying and add a dimension that's never been used before.

"There are banners and there's planes that fly pulling a big banner but to actually see a character, a life-size character fly in the stadium or at an event, down the beach, wherever is just brand-new.

 "No one's ever seen that, it just blows everybody's mind," said business partner Ed Hanly.

Designer and engineer Otto Dieffenbach said that the products weren't really for sale "because they are so custom-built and there are a lot of man hours that go into construction".

He added: "But the cost of the actual materials to build them is well under $500."
