Air Hogs Hawk Eye Full Hands On Review With Video

So, in the last sneak peek blog entry of the Air Hogs Hawk Eye, I mentioned how my son and I pratically fought to secure dibs on the toy.  Looks like there was a couple of things I left out.

1 – The baby joined in.

2 – The Hawk Eye caught it all on camera.

Let me share it with you now (the footage captured on the Air Hogs Hawk Eye) :

* Note : no babies, kids, or adults were harmed in making this totally setup video.  You caught me.  It was made up, but, still funny none the less.  And it’s a way to demonstrate the video capabilities of the Hawk Eye.

So, what did the zooLert Army tester think of the new Air Hogs Hawk Eye Helicopter?

Here’s some stuff that I took notice of :

  • It completes the dream of having a video camera on an indoor flying helicopter
  • It doesn’t capture audio but this isn’t a deal breaker.  Seeing the camera view swooping around while flying is what it is all about.
  • The video is actually very respectable for the price of the toy!  Don’t expect HD video, but, expect webcams of the past couple of years.
  • It takes not only video, but still shots as well
  • If you are experienced with Air Hogs Helicopters, this is more of the same.  Fish to water.
  • If you aren’t, you will take some time to get adjusted to it.  Just take it slow.  That’s the trick.
  • It’s a lot of fun.  A lot.
  • You won’t go wrong if your kid has shout out and exclaimed “I Want That!”
