Customer Reviews

The foam nose broke, but was held on by wiring inside.

The review that gave it 5 stars was most likely cleverly written by Air Hogs.

The first time I flew the plane it crashed and the nose broke off.

I got this toy so that my son and I could fly "on a whim" when the time and wind permit. I learned to first fly on an early model of this (w/o the camera) about 15 years ago. We charged this toy up, read the manual, and set out to fly. First few flights were a bit tough as the airplane kept "porpoising" (riding suddenly higher up, stalling, nosediving, and starting over). I backed off the throttle to about 1/2 into the wind to 2/3s out of the wind and we started climbing higher and higher. Turns are a bit tough because you have to apply throttle to execute. Eventually reached about 100 feet off the ground and 150 feet away. The plane was still controllable but my old eyes had a hard time telling which direction it was facing. So I cut the throttle and let it glide in my wife's car (bang!). No damage. In total I had about 15 flights with 2 recharges.

Here are a couple of thoughts for kids that are struggling:
1) Make sure that you have little to no wind. Once you are pretty good at flying it can probably handle up to 5mph.
2) Stand up, give it 1/2 to 2/3s throttle and just fly it straight. With a little practice this will teach you that you have to keep the pilot's perspective to "left / right" while turning (one of the hardest things to do!). :)
3) Once you've had several flights straight, try to fly and gentle nudge the rudder (the right stick) left or right for 1/2 sec at a time and allow it to return to center (this is because it steers the plane by creating a speed difference between the left and right engines). You want to turn very wide and very slowly to get the hang of it.
4) Because of this wing design the plane isn't exactly "super stable". It will require pretty constant watch and input.

After reading a few reviews and even watching a few video reviews, we chose this Airplane over the RC Cars with built-in video/still camera because it seemed easy to fly, fun, and durable. We had to wait about three days after buying it to try flying it because of high wind, and my son was getting antsy. When we finally got the chance to try it out, we were immediately disappointed.

First, the plane is a real pain to even launch. You have to be at full throttle before even trying to 'throw' it to launch, and then the angle of the throw must be absolutely perfect for it not to immediately nose-dive into the ground, or flutter a bit before...nose-diving into the ground. We tried soft throws, hard throws, straight throws, lobbed throws, with wind, against wind, cross wind, etc...it seemed that throwing it straight really hard with the wind yielded the best results for a successful launch.

Second, when we finally got the plane airborne, one of two things happened: it would either get out of range (100' advertised range was not experienced here, and we were in a wide-open park with no trees or anything within 200-300 feet), stall, and nose-dive into the ground, or it would hit a slight wind gust, barrel roll, and nose-dive into the ground. Either way, even when it did fly, it was constantly turning right and there wasn't enough time to trim it to fly straight before it would either get out of range or once again, nose-dive into the ground.

Third, we got it to fly about 4 times in half an hour, and the longest flight was maybe 10 seconds. The instructions say to maintain full throttle to gain altitude and release throttle to descend, but we held the throttle at max the entire time, and the thing always lost altitude.

My 9 year old flies this plane pretty well for it being his first RC plane. I have experience at large gas powered RC planes, so I've got the background to help my kids be successful at this.

Right out of the box, it's a little tail heavy but the stalls are gentle and do not result in a crash. Full throttle hand launches straight into the wind (you have to fly this thing in almost still air) work best for us. You absolutely need to use the trim knob to have any prayer of getting it to fly straight. It is very durable, it has landed hard on the hard dirt and concrete and is none the worse for wear. You'd have to really not know what you are doing to smash this thing. This is my experience with the AirHogs A10 that my older son had too. Very durable. The run time of the motor on full throttle is pretty much the same as the other twin motor airhogs, less than 10 min for sure, but long enough to get your thrills. One absolute that must be followed for these tiny little rc planes is there must be almost ZERO wind. Here in Texas, I won't even think about flying during the middle of the day. There is almost always too much wind. Right after sunup or an hour before sundown are your best bets for good conditions. I tell my son to look at the very top of the tallest trees around, and if they are moving, we don't fly. It stinks, but it's just the way it has to be with a small, lightweight plane.

When the videos are viewed on the computer, of course they're not the best, but it's still an amazing technological achievement in a toy of this price. Love that it charges off the usb port of a computer or any other usb charger. It's also easy to get the videos and pics off of the plane while you're connected and charging. My singular (minor) complaint is that the range of the 2.
