It seems like every year we are doing a review of some new remote controlled vehicle at Christmas time. There’s two reasons for that. One is that new ones are released each year. And the other is that these great toys never seem to go out of style. Of course some are better than others, and the Air Hogs Hyperactives fall into this category. In fact, Air Hogs are almost always among the top sellers in the RC industry.
Should Your Child Have Air Hogs Hyperactives?
The short answer is yes. And here’s why. Hyperactives are one of the few toys released that will live up to the pre-Christmas hype. These toys are fast and will travel well on a variety of terrains. One of the problems with a lot of remote control vehicles is that once they turn over, you have to go pick them up and set them right for them to start moving again. That doesn’t happen with Air Hogs Hyperactives. They always return to the correct position on their own which keeps the fun moving.
And these are very easy to control. The remote allows you to be as much as 100 feet away from the car and it will still be under your command. And when your child is playing with friends who also own one of the Hyperactives, there will be no interference. That means no crossover in control. Your child’s remote will control his car, and his car only.
Of course kids love to race, and the Air Hogs Hyperactives are especially fun to race simply because they are so fast.
Another good feature is that these vehicles charge quickly. A complete charge only takes about 30 minutes. But there’s a drawback here too. The charged battery will only last 30 minutes as well. I guess you should expect that with the fast charging time, but kids will certainly want to play longer than a half an hour, even if the wait time until the next charge is complete is equally short.
Another potential drawback is the size of the car. They are small, which is what makes them both fast and nimble. Of course that also makes them easy to lose. They can get hidden under furniture or in bushes, so your child will have to keep an eye on it and make sure not to leave it out. Perhaps that’s why the manufacturer recommends Air Hogs Hyperactives for ages 12 and up. It’s certainly a minor point, but one worth mentioning.
Get Your Air Hogs Hyperactives Soon
Air Hogs helicopters sold extremely well last Christmas, and toy stores and online shops are expecting Hyperactives to do likewise this year. That means there’s the potential for them to sell out. If this is something your child will be interested in, we recommended you get it now and put it in a safe and well hidden place until Christmas.
Features Of The Air Hogs Hyperactives
Air Hogs Hyperactives come in a variety of metallic colors including blue and silver, orange and white, red and gold, as well as blue and yellow. They can be used both inside and out. And remember we told you earlier that these cars were fast, well they can reach speeds of up to 20 MPH. You will need 6 AA batteries for the remote and the included charger will charge the vehicle.
The Bottom Line
Air Hogs Hyperactives are a high quality toy and certainly one of the fastest RC cars available. Older children will absolutely love them and play with them for hours on end both indoors and outside. If you want an affordable toy that’s high quality and loads of fun, Air Hogs Hyperactives may be just what you are looking for.
Anybody who loves flight is fascinated by remote controlled flying vehicles. And all kids seem to love them as well. The problem is that most of these toys are large, cumbersome, and hard to take from one place to another. The Air Hogs Pocket Copter solves this problem with a unit small enough to fit into your hand.
What you’ll get is all the agility you expect from an Air Hogs product but without the size.
If you’ve been around remote controlled flying machines for any length of time, you’re probably familiar with Air Hogs. They have been producing precision flying machines for a long time and in fact have been a leader in the industry when it comes to innovation for over 10 years. They have earned their reputation because they product quality products and know their business. And while the Pocket Copter is the smallest unit they’ve ever made, it’s just as impressive as the rest of their products.
Here’s another advantage of the Air Hogs Pocket Copter. If the weather is nasty, you can even fly it indoors too. Flying this copter you are protected from the worry that it will crash into and damage your household objects. The shell is made of plastic protecting both your valuables and the aircraft itself in case of a collision. Bonus points are awarded because the unit is also very quiet.
Not only is the copter smaller, the remote too is smaller; about the size of your hand. This makes it easy to use not only for children, but for adults as well. Of course this could be a small problem once you find out just how much fun it is. Your son or daughter may not like waiting for their turn.
Air Hogs are well known for their flying ability. This new unit has a much smoother ride and easier control due in part to the twin rotary blades. The bar that is attached to the tail can be moved forward and back to increase or decrease the speed, therefore there’s no need to add extra weight on the nose.
And there’s no need to worry that it’s too fragile. Air Hogs has you covered with a convenient carrying case. The case has hard sides to protect the copter and the remote. The charging cable is also built into the case. That means when you need it, the charger is never far away. Just 20 minutes is all it takes for your copter to be ready to take back to the air.
The Air Hogs Pocket Copter is a great toy, but it’s something more. It’s also a great way to raise interest in a new hobby that can be both entertaining and yes, somewhat addictive. It’s the perfect way to introduce your children to the world of remote controlled aircraft
