Product Description

Product Description

Indoor R/C racing has never seen anything quite like this. This zero-gravity micro racer is a full-function R/C car that knows no difference between the floor, the walls and the ceiling! It races right-side up, upside-down, and any other smooth surface, all with outstanding scale speed and performance. Working headlights act as charge level indicators, so you know when it's time to recharge. Car comes with two power settings - floor mode with venture fan off, and suction mode for vertical and upside-down action. Includes four different frequencies so you can race against your friends. Requires 1 rechargeable LiPo battery (included) and 6 "AA" batteries (not included). Measures 4.75"L x 2.5"W x 1.25"H. Colors may vary from image shown.

Forget those remote control cars that just scoot across the ground! These Air Hogs Zero Gravity Micro cars moves in three dimensions -- across the ground, up the wall, and even upside down on the ceiling! By using a specially designed suction device, the car can climb a wall and maneuver just as it does on the ground.



Air Hogs lets you control a car along the ground and up walls. View larger.

At a Glance

Ages: 8 and up
Requires: 6 AA batteries for remote, clean surface
Smart, Innovative Design
Air Hogs makes the only cars that can climb walls, and the Zero Gravity Micro is smaller and faster than the original Air Hogs Zero Gravity Humvee. We were surprised by how small and light the Zero Gravity Micro is; it is basically a thin plastic shell wrapped around a light body with a vacuum in it. Our car was designed to look like a red race car, but you can choose from other designs available as well.

We were able to get the Zero Gravity Micro up and running without any problems. The remote control unit needs six AA batteries (not included), and is then used to charge the built-in rechargeable battery in the car. This is done by connecting a cable from the remote control to the car, and flipping the switch to charge mode. Thanks to smart design, this cable can be stowed and hidden away when not being used.

After about half an hour for charging, the car was ready to go. Right away, we set the car to wall climbing mode and set it on our wall. Though we'd read about what it was supposed to do, we were still very impressed when we saw the car stick to the wall and climb. You can see the vacuum working, as there is a window on the top of the car showing a spinning fan. The car makes quite a bit of sound when it is in wall mode.

Using the remote, we were able to make the car go up, turn left and right, and go down as well. With a tight turning radius, the car is very maneuverable and with some practice, you can get the car to do exactly as you wish. In addition to Wall mode, there is also a Ground mode which leaves the fan/vacuum off, and lets you drive full function on the ground. You need to walk around with the car, however, as the remote has limited range. This is not as big a concern on walls because we were usually pretty close to the wall as the car was climbing it.

The car has working headlights that double as a battery indicator--when they start to blink, the car is running low on power.

Needs Clean, Smooth Surface
The instructions warn that the car should be played only on a clean, smooth surface, and they're not kidding. Since the car is able to stay on walls due to suction, the moment an inconsistency is introduced, the car loses suction and falls off. We found that a surface like glass works very well. With our concrete wall, we often ran into problems with the car maintaining its suction. Coupled with the car's light construction, we fear that repeated abuse could cause damage to it.

Overall, we found the Air Hogs Zero Gravity Micro to be an innovative and fun toy. We wished it were a bit more hefty and could work on more surfaces, but when we got it going on our window, we were very impressed. It's a great new idea and twist on an old toy, and is bound to keep children mesmerized.

I was pleasantly surprised that it actually did drive on the wall with the help of a built-in vacuum..
Amazon Customer
It's fallen off the wall a few times and not been damaged, because it's so light it seems durable enough to stand up to normal use.
Sock Sockson
It is light-weight so I think it's better for children that are able to be gentler with their toys, but overall it's awesome!

We got this in the mail, and my son couldn't wait to use it. He charged it up, and turned it on. IT IS SUPER LOUD. Louder than a vacuum and the tv on at the same time. The only thing that saved it from being thrown out was the light on my son and his best friends face when it actually stuck to the wall and zoomed past me. However, another downfall was the battery life. It is pretty much non-existent. He can only get a few good runs out of it before it dies, and when it DOES die, it literally just drops off the wall wherever it's at.

My 7 year old got this for his birthday. The first one didn't work at all other than making a horrible noise. The second one broke almost immediately. Battery life extremely low and it falls off the wall when the charge runs out. Don't waste your money on this one.

It's a pretty good toy, but for how expensive it is it should perform better. The car's four wheels are just cosmetic - really there are two small wheels hidden under the body's plastic shell. The two-wheel design makes driving on walls that aren't completely smooth tough, cause the car won't be able to drive up parts that bump out. Having the car's four wheels not really turn looks cheap and less cool.

It drives pretty well on the walls and ceiling, but it moves pretty slow. On the ground it's faster, about the speed you'd expect for such a small R/C.

The car is noisy when it's in wall-mode, the fan is about as loud as a hairdryer. It's fallen off the wall a few times and not been damaged, because it's so light it seems durable enough to stand up to normal use.

It's pretty fun to drive on the walls and ceiling, but I wish it were faster and that all four wheels actually spun. It's expensive for not having those features.

This is a fun little car, and works well on the walls. It isn't worth a penny more than I paid for it (29.99) at W--M---, though!
And keep your receipt, it seems a little flimsy. We've had such bad experience with air hogs items, that I don't quite trust this will last very long.

This is a great remote controlled car.

I bought it for my nephew's 6th birthday in November. He loves playihng with it--however; if you have textured walls (as my brother / SIL do) the car will have a hard time sticking to the wall.

My nephew found out that it will work on the french doors, windows, and the underside of the dining room table, though...

My daughter loves cars, and she saw the commercials on tv for this toy and kept saying she wanted the wall racer. Since her birthday was coming up, we decided we'd get it for her. I can't believe what a piece of junk it is. First of all, it didn't come with the wall stickies to make a "course" on the wall, and the car itself barely stays on the wall. When it is on the wall, it doesn't "race" really fast like you see on the commercial. It's WAY slower... the noise is annoying.... there's nothing really positive I can say about this car. Save your 50 bucks for something more useful and entertaining.

My grandson loved this popular toy. It ran up our painted walls, and he soon figured out how to maneuver the car well. It is noisy on walls and ceilings from the vacuum that holds it up, but you can turn the vacuum off when using it on the floor. It takes a whopping 6AA batteries for the remote, but has a rechargeable battery in the car. (May I suggest rechargeable AA's?) We purchased this car for about $20, though, and don't understand why it is so expensive here.
