Air Hogs Twin Thunder Dual Rotor Helicopter

August 13th, 2008 Comments off


Air Hogs has just released a dual rotor helicopter called the Twin Thunder. The helicopter’s design looks very similar to a CH-47 Chinook. It is advertised to be a 3 channel helicopter which should allow it to have more refined forward and backward control (the Havoc Heli is only 2 channel). The size is slightly larger the the Havoc Heli but would is still a micro helicopter.

Amazon is already taking order for them and I snapped a couple of pictures at my local Target of one. I will be purchasing and reviewing it in the near future so check back.

Air Hogs Apache Havoc Helicopter – Only $23.99

February 15th, 2008 Comments off

The Air Hogs Apache Havoc Helicopter is a pretty standard Havoc Heli accept for the fact that it is modeled after the ever popular Military AH-64 Apache Helicopter. The Apache Havoc Heli is the familiar drab green color and sports the familiar dual cockpit of the original Apache.

The Apache Havoc Heli is loaded with the newest of control software from Air Hogs that gives it more responsive controls.

During Christmas I saw these going for up to $75 each but Amazon has them for an amazing $25 now. This is definitely the best RC helicopter to pick up for price.

You can get it here at Amazon.com or at the link above.

Air Hogs Robo Recon Copter – $39.99 – Just Released!

November 8th, 2007 Comments off


Air Hogs has just released Robo Copter for the 2007 Christmas season.

The Robo Copter looks similar to the Havoc Heli setup but is a little bigger. The biggest difference is that this is a guy in a space suit flying around instead of a mini helicopter.

The Robo Copter is creating such a buzz because it is Air Hog’s most stable helicopter to date. The below video shows more responsive rudder controls and the ability to put it precisely where you want it. Amazon.com is one of the first companies to carry it. I have not seen it in any brink and mortor stores.

Her is the video from Air Hogs for the Robo Copter:

Mini Bell Hughes 300 Helicopter – Only $21.50 – This Mini Dragonfly is Awesome

September 6th, 2007 Comments off

The Mini Hughes 300 Helicopter, better know as “The Dragonfly” is an awesome little helicopter. It is smaller in length then the original Air Hogs Havoc Heli which gives it a very dynamic response when flying around.

Although the Mini Hughes is not made by Air Hogs you wouldn’t know it as the major components look like the are made side-by-side in the same factory as the Air Hogs version. The tail and main rotors look exactly the same as the Havoc and the controller is exactly the same.

mini-hughes-300-2 I was a little skeptical at first that this was just going to be some cheap little knock off and that I was wasting my money. I was wrong! The Mini Hughes is as durable as the Havoc Heli if not more. I think the main reason for that is that it is constructed entirely out of plastic as opposed to foam like the Air Hogs Version.

mini-hughes-300-1 The only part that I have not figured out yet is how to adjust it for more forward movement. With the Havoc Heli you can twist the tail rotor so that it gives a little downward thrust. That is not possible with the Hughes 300. Also the Mini Hughes doesn’t have the extended nose of the Havoc Heli so there is nothing to stick a pin into. Don’t worry though, I will figure a way to get this guy shooting around my room!

The Mini Hughes 300 is a cool little heli and a welcome addition to the hanger. You can pick it up at Amazon.com for $21.98 which is a still since my local hobby shop has them for $39.99.
