My Take on the Product
My daughter has one of the other air hog helicopters so she has some experience with these (but by far is not an expert and neither am I). When I received this though we were intrigued as this is the first air hogs product that I have ever seen that has items built into it that allows you to either fire from the helicopter or now from the Turret. The idea behind this is that you have to use the helicopter to fire on the radar dish on the radar, while being careful to not be shot down by the robotic turret which can be set on automatic and allowed to track the helicopter (and it actually does a very good job at it). As in the other air hog products that we have tried in the past, the helicopter has to be recharged after a short period because it does not hold a large amount of charge (and does not have a large independent battery pack either).

I have to say that in trying this out we were all quite impressed, and have to say that the system is very click and works quite well. I was impressed by how well the turret tracks the helicopter, but also how fun it was to try and aim at the target that you were trying to hit while being fired upon as well. If you have tried Air Hogs in the past you will find that this is a whole new animal, but that it is so much fun! All-in-all I highly recommend this to all, not only for it's interactive nature, but also for how fun it was overall, you will definitely not be disappointed!
