Model Superman flies high over San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Superman has been spotted off the coast of Carlsbad in a video that has gone viral.

This Superman was created by local model plane builder and former Air Force test pilot Otto Dieffenbach.

The superhero is made out of lightweight foam, with an electric motor and a three-blade propeller.

He is not quite faster than a speeding bullet, this Superman travels at about 30 miles an hour, helped, in part, by his aerodynamic cape.

Otto has created other superheros, including Super Girl.

He and a partner plan to launch a business in a few months, selling these remote-controlled figures.
