Please read the Challenge. Here is more fun with toys I wish I had when I was a kid, as I am finally getting to play with them now at age 62! Here I demonstrate how the Air Hogs (to be released Fall, 2010) "Hawk Eye" camera helicopter (for the budding aerial photographers and for the old guys like me), flies outside. IR controlled, so just fly it when the sun is down. Also, it is difficult to see which way it is going at high altitude, so get it trimmed good, remembering not to shut it off in flight, as it will tumble to the ground, but without damage.
As you can see, I have really whackoed this little heli and it just keeps going. No damage whatsoever.
This may be tame for you purists, but it was fun for me to fly, just to make the video. Plus, having flown lots of big gas stuff, etc, this is a nice little "walk in the park".
Who knows what you will do with one. So I welcome and look forward to any video responses you can make with your Hawkeyes, so bring 'em on when you can get them....
For more information, see my other Hawkeye videos, including the product review.
