Experience R/C flight micro-size with the R/C
Defender; this mini marvel is powered by two propellers,
onboard computer system and full-function four way control
- flying has never been so easy! No assembly is required and
with its high-density foam the Defender is damage-resistant
and can fly for up to five minutes...
come to regard the arrival of a new Air Hogs remote control
aircraft in the office with a mixed feeling. On the one hand
I'm as excited as a small school boy, looking to see how they've
managed to top what has gone before. And on the other hand
I dread being told that "No! It's not your turn to review
this one Ray!"
I was over the moon to hear that I was to be given a day pass
to leave the Totnes office and wander aimlessly on Dartmoor
to try out the latest Defender R/C plane.
easy to set up - no fiddly construction to undertake - and
all you have to do is charge it for a couple of minutes and
you can fly for around five minutes. The controller also acts
as the charger, which is well thought out, and takes 6 x AA
plane is constructed from high-density EPP foam (which is
stronger than EPS or polystyrene, but is still incredibly
light) and has a range
of up to 300 feet.
only slight complaint I had, and this is something that I've
noticed with a lot of the Air Hogs models, is that the image
on the box is much more polished than the finished item. This
plane had rough edges, making it look a little unfinished
and as though it might break apart when I picked it up. Of
course, it didn't, but it would have been nice if it had been
finished a little better. Also
you have to be very careful when picking this up. The wings
can be easily damaged if you don't treat this craft with delicate
extra bonus is that those lovely Air Hogs people have also
included a spare set of propellors to ensure that you get
hours of fun out of this entry level introduction to the world
of R/C planes. And, quite frankly, it's a bargain at £30.
