Air Hogs Aero Ace Plane

Postby Ian on Sun Jul 23, 2006 9:44 pm

Anyone have any of Air Hogs R/C air planes? Target had a few on clearance so I picked up the F-16 Falcon. It was pretty fun but I kept losing it up on the roof and the battery didn't last too long. Here's the F-16 page on Target's website:

After doing some reading on the web, I found out that the Air Hogs Aero Ace is actually better. I had initially passed on it since the F-16 looked sportier.

I finally hauled out my Aero Ace this weekend and I gotta say that the web reviews are right... it's a lot better than the F-16. It flies slower but its a lot easier to control and the battery lasts a good 5-10 minutes. The only bad thing is that it doesn't work too well if its windy.

Anyway, I paid about $18 for mine. If you see them on clearance at your local Target, I highly recommend them. Keep in mind, these aren't high quality R/C planes.. but they're a lot of fun.

I've thought about getting into the hobby but I don't have the time or the yard to justify buying a real RC plane.
