So, I opened the box, and fifteen minutes later…

My son got his very own RC toy as well – the Air Hogs AtmoSphere. Its operation is similar to the Flutterbye Fairy, but because he’s only three, I had to help him keep the Atmosphere in the air. After a few minutes, he caught on quickly and was getting pretty good at maneuvering the toy where he wanted it to go.

We also got to try out the Air Hogs Elite Helix X4 Stunt, which is meant for older children (12+), as it’s a bit more involved to operate. I took the helm this time…and it was really fun to operate! It did some stunts and other cool stuff, but being the “newbie” that I am, I have no clue how it happened (science isn’t my strong suit)! So, for all you techies out there, here’s the full description of what it does – and how – from the Spin Master website…
The Air Hogs Elite Helix X4 Stunt is a high-performance RC stunt quad-copter! Utilizing 2.4GHz radio control, gyro stabilization, and 4-ducted fans, the Helix X4 Stunt is aggressively maneuverable and incredibly fast! Perform 3 incredible stunts with the push of a button as you backflip, barrel roll and 180 flip. The Helix X4 Stunt features incredibly crash-resistant materials protecting the rotors and delivering superior durability. Its full 4-channel control enables the Helix X4 to easily outfly any obstacle and out stunt any other RC vehicle.
eruptions of laughter and giggles from all over the house. The kids had a
blast with them! (One caveat is that it eats batteries like they’re going out of style, so I recommend buying rechargeables.)
