Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fun little drone When my son saw the package for the Air Hogs Helix Race Drone, he was thrilled. We took it out of the package and I looked over the Drone. I was a little worried about the durability of it with the bottom pieces being made of foam. After a quick search for batteries for the remote, we got it plugged in to charge. It charged pretty quickly. The drone is a little tricky to get used to flying. Because it goes so fast, my wife said we had to play outside with our toy. Taking it outside in the backyard, it did pretty good. The drone did sometimes go to high and far away from the remote but it would quickly regain control once it dropped height a little bit. My 9 year old son did a good job and learned it quickly. It flew about 15 minutes before needing a recharge. Because the drone recharged fairly quick, my son was not discouraged from playing and waited anxiously to resume play. We did land it too hard on the first day and the foam did get a small split in it, but it didn't affect the functioning of the Drone at all. We took really good care of it and never left it outside. It stayed beside us when not playing with it. Our only regret was that it didn't have a camera. On the third day of playing with the Drone, it was flying as normal but when it got 5 feet away it suddenly dropped and went to the ground. It has not worked since. It won't respond to the remote control. I have changed the batteries in the remote control and tried to charge the drone again but nothing. It will not pair with the remote. It was fun while it lasted but we were hoping to get more than three days of play with the Helix Race Drone. The idea is good but it seems to need tweeked a little bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fun Toy for Kids and Parents We had so much fun with this. Not only did my 11 year old son love it, but my 14 year old daughter, my husband, and myself had a great time with it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set-up and handles well I let my 10 year old son open the box and set up the drone. He had a few questions but managed to figure it using the instruction guide. After he charged it I took it for it's first drive. I have used other drones in the past and found this one to be very easy to understand and control. Within 5 minutes I had it flipping. It was tough to keep it level-- I kept getting it too high and then would need to coordinate a controlled landing. There were a few rough landings but no damage to the drone. My son and his 12 year old friend had no trouble controlling it. They thought the flip feature was a little delayed but were able to get it to work. They were disappointed at the short play time (12-15min) per charge. During the course of a camping weekend they played with it 4 times. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Air Hogs Helix Race Drone makes flying easy The Air Hogs Race Drone (Blue) was pretty easy to use right out of the box. It is much easier than a remote helicopter that we have. There are 2 control levels, an easy and an advanced. Honestly, we have only used the easy level. Although this allowed us to fly the drone pretty easily, it was still a little difficult to control. My children loved the stunt button. This would allow your drone to do tricks like flips while flying it. It doesn't require any advanced controls and makes the drone more fun. There were a few things that prevented us from completely loving this drone. First, the battery lasted only about 20 minutes or so before it died out. We took a trip to our local park to have some room to fly it, and it was fun but didn't last too long. Also, part of the foam landing gear on the bottom of the drone started breaking after only a few uses. It still worked fine, but will probably come off after a few more crash landings. Overall, my whole family enjoyed this easy to use drone. It makes us want to get one with a camera on it next. We'll see. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best drone we've ever had! My son is a lover of drones and has gotten one for Christmas the past two years. Inevitably, the ones we have gotten don't work very well and are broken in a matter of days. However, the Air Hogs Helix Race Drone has broken the pattern. My 8-year-old son loves this drone. He and his friends have lots is fun flying it in our driveway and yard. He loved that it goes super high and is durable- no cracks or breaks to speak of. I love that it does not need constant battery replacements. We've had it for a month and use it fairly often and I am just now changing the batteries. I would absolutely recommend this as a great gift for kids in the 6-12 age frame. I'll be looking for it to buy for my neices and nephews at Christmas time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from fun, but... I love things that fly. This is no exception. hovers nicely, but it is hard to get it to go where you want. Also, the battery takes forever to charge and doesn't last long, maybe 10 minutes. Sturdy construction and light weight. I crashed it several times and it didn't hurt it, I just couldn't figure out how to get it to go where I wanted before the battery died. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best toy EVER! I think this toy is amazing!! Not only is it so cool to have a flying drone, but it's super fun and durable too. My son has been plying with this nonstop since we got it! It took a little bit of practice to get the hang of the controls, bit once that was figured out its been smooth sailing (pun intended). The Air Hog Helix drone is fun for all kids and adults alike. It's sturdy and looks so cool flying through the sky. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We were so excited I would have gave it a higher but I received the product got it charged, me and my son were very excited to play with it we were able to mess around with it for about 20 min, just enough time to get somewhat of a grasp on controls before it died. Went to go charge it for the second time and nothing no matter what I did would not take a charge, I did call air hogs they are sending replacement without much trouble over the phone either great customer service but did not have much time with product before it broke.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Air Hogs Helix Drone Racer My 3 boys loved this! It was lite weight. Once they got the hang of it, it was pretty easy to use. Even the 5 year old managed to get it up with the help of my 15 year old. The design was nice. The 2 biggest issues we had was flight time was very short. And after flying it maybe 10 times, the foam cracked completely in one spot. But that could be due to a few bumps into the wall while learning to fly. And it still flies. We have had other Air Hog products in the past, and this has been the best as far as durability by far. They wished it was sold in a two pack, because it was labeled as a racing drone, and it was not as much fun to fly by its self. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't Work Out As Expected... So, we received the product and finally had an opportunity to try it out over the long weekend. Unfortunately, we couldn't get it to work. We were hoping it needed to charge longer than we had it on there originally but that didn't work for us either. So sad, my son was REALLY excited. We decided to leave it alone and will try again this evening! Wish us luck with the third try! Product is aesthetically pleasing and it was much lighter than I expected it to be so that's a positive... since I don't have to worry about anyone's eye getting poked!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great drone with no camera. My boys are 6 and 9, and they are enjoying this drone. It's taking them. While to get an idea of how to work the controls, and it's knocking into a lot of things as they got the good thing is, it seems to be doing okay even after the falls. We have had similar products from air hogs like helicopters that would fall and break right away. This is a much more sturdy toy. They were disappointed that it doesn't have a camera because they think that all drones have cameras. Also, being that it's a racer drone, we felt like selling them in two packs, even if the price was a little higher, would make more sense. I would recommend this to boys in this age range, as long as a parent is willing to help them learn to control it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Drone for all levels The Air Hogs Helix Race Drone is the perfect gift for a gamer, child or adult. Even at the beginner level, it takes some practice to fly, take off, and even do tricks. Hang on to the directions since they are needed for many troubleshooting issues and to do tricks. The controller is very sensitive, so it takes some getting used to. All ages enjoy the chance to control something like a drone and try to make it do tricks. Pros: Once you get the hang of it, it flies easily. It looks deceptively fragile, but ran into things and did not break. If you follow the directions, tricks and things are easy to complete. Cons: The charging does not last long and limits use to at most 20 minutes at a time. Due to its light weight, fan wind or outside wind can make it travel to places hard to reach and quickly. The charging with 2 cords is a bit complicated and seems unnecessary, You have to manually flip it over if it is upside down. 1 propeller stopped periodically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for everyone! Both of my 10 year old boys had a blast flying and doing tricks with this fun little drone. It took a few minutes to get the hang of it but they were soon flying like pros. They flew this both inside and outside, but it is lightweight so they had to make sure to use it when there wasn't a breeze outside. It held up well during many missions and a few crashes. One small piece of foam broke off during one crash into the concrete but a little superglue and it was flying like new! The kids were having such a blast that my husband and I had to try it! It was fun for the entire family! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waaay too much fun... The Air Hogs Helix Race Drone was a HUGE hit in our home. At first glance, my son 11 year old son almost couldn't contain himself. From then on, it was love at first touch. Both my husband and son couldn't get enough of it. Not as loud as I imagined it would be; which was nice. I was a little surprised at the fact that it is essentially made from Styrofoam and plastic. Makes sense though. Keeps it light and simple, which is great for loss of control that may result in minor collisions. Ease of use and functionality hit some high marks for us. Unfortunately, my review doesn't necessarily reflect that, and here's why... After 2 weeks of continuous use, no major collisions and fully charged batteries, it just stopped working a few days ago. The lights go on to show there's power on bother the remote and the Drone, but it is non-responsive otherwise. Although that is a huge bummer and left a bitter taste in our mouths, it most definitely still deserves a solid 3 stars!! Lots and lots of fun!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super fun but.. My 9 year old and the neighborhood kids loved the drone. Pros..battery life seems very good we have not had to change batteries yet. Charges very quickly. It can fly very high. A button to make it flip is an added fun feature. It appears very durable with the exception of one issue I will discuss next. Cons...the instructions for the intial charging are complicated. Making the drone actually turn it difficult to figure out. Ours quit working after one week..our 19 year old tore the non working propellor apart to find wires that were no longer connected. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This thing has some zip! While unboxing the drone it almost felt fragile to me. It's so lightweight and was packed in so tight I was hoping I didn't break it. Once out of the package I got everything plugged in and let it charge overnight, with intentions to try out the next day. I don't have a whole lot of experience with remote control things. So I was having an issue controlling it. I could get it up in the air, once I started to move forward it was very fast! So most of the time with me driving, it was only up in the air 5 to 10 seconds before I crashed into something and had to start all over again. My husband had much more success with it, and had no issues with the controls. He was able to maneuver correctly. We were both impressed with how fast it was! All in all, the drone seems very well made & put together. I crashed & burned A LOT and it's still intact and in working condition. At the price point it's listed at, I would probably purchase this for a child or family member that's asking for a drone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flying High I have used remote control cars before, but never a vehicle that flys. I was able to figure out how to fly the drone very quickly. I had a ton of fun. You do need to pick up some AA batteries to run the remote, which I didn't realize until I took everything out, but I keep a good supply on hand at all times. I love that the battery case uses a push button rather than a tiny screw. I hate having to find a tiny screw driver to replace batteries. Be ready to meet new friends, because the second I started playing with the drone, everyone nearby came to check it out...and get a turn. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for all ages I think the Air Hog Helix Race Zone is great! My boys ages 14, 11 and 9 and even my husband all loved playing with this toy. It was easy to control for the littlest guy and challenging enough for the oldest. I would highly recommend this as a gift for boys (and even men) of all ages!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Toy!!!! This Drone is so much fun to play with. The controls are so easy to use. It is a quick reacting drone that does flips and turns on a dime. My kids and I have had hours of fun just trying it out. My 8 year old was the one that actually showed me how to do a flip with the drone using the trigger button on the controller. I am so happy to have received it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use--my boys LOVE it! We have had remote control air toys before so I was interested to see how this one would compare. I have to say there is NO comparison!! The other 2 we have tried have easily lost connection and were hard to get started but we had no issues with this one. As soon as it was charged, it was ready to go and my kids had no problem getting it started. The controls are a little sensitive so there is definitely a learning curve and we found it best to be in a wide open space vs our back yard. We had it get stuck in a couple of trees since it can go very high. My 12 year old son loves how it can flip mid-air and he can play with it for a long time before it needs recharging. My 5 year old son was able to do some basic flying with help from my husband. They are both in love so I may need to get another so they stop fighting over it. We really love this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full of surprises This little drone was just full of surprises! It was very easy to operate. My 12 year old son was an expert flier within 10 minutes. Even I got the hang of it quickly. We were excited to see the flips in mid-air and could not believe how high it would go. I actually almost lost sight of it! The only disappointment was that the charge didn't last as long as we'd hoped. We got maybe 20 minutes of flight before we needed to give it a "nap" to recharge. We will definitely be buying a couple more of these to give a Christmas gifts this year! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat the smiles! To start with this product does not require a screwdriver to install batteries. To me, this is a big deal, because I can never seem to find the right size screwdriver to open the battery compartment. Also, my two sons age 8 and 10 really loved this product! They couldn't wait to play with it, and we only charged it for about an hour initially before we tested it. The kids loved it! They immediately figured out how to do flips with this, and were smiling from ear to ear! I was fearful that this would easily break as they continually crashed it to the floor, but the material is a great quality and there wasn't even a dent! My husband even couldn't wait to try this, and thought it was a much better quality than the drone I got him for Christmas that was twice the price of this one, and he had a great time flying this and loved all of the different flips and turns this could do. He thought it was very easy to control. I couldn't be left out, and I also loved this product! I could see where all of the smiles came from, as I thought it was a lot of fun too! I would highly recommend this product as it is fun toy that is sure to provide many hours of future enjoyment. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This thing is awesome When we received the drone my 10 year old son was so excited to try it out. There was no assembly required. Once it was charge he immediately started learning to fly it, he said it was a bit tricky at first but soon he was delivering notes to me from the other room. One issue we had is it isn't very durable. If it hit the wall a piece surrounding the propellers would break off. After 3 repairs there was a no flying inside rule enforced. My son took it outside and it became a hit with all the neighborhood kids and their mom's. I got the chance to explain to the other Moms about BzzAgent and how it lets you try things in exchange for your opinion. They were very interested so I gave them the Website information. The kids played and played until it had to be charged, charged it and played some more. I would give it five stars if it were a little less fragile. I wish I would have known not to fly it inside before we did it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely awesome My son thinks it is awesomely awesome!!! Batteries aren't included and you need a Philips screw driver. After acquiring those necessities and charging it with the cord supplied my 9 year old son and hubby had a blast playing with it. It was raining when they hooked it up so they used it inside at first, my son found it a bit tricky at first it didn't take long for him to warm up to it. I liked that it's crash resistant because it was crashing into the walls at first. Taking it outside was even more exciting with him doing tricks with it. I'm very excited that this toy got him off of his tablet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Air hog racer My son's and I love the air hogs blue drone! It's easy and fun to use. We love the stunts that we can do with it. We were really surprised how far in the air it would go. Liked how well it took off. Light weight too. Even though we only had one controller between all of us but we managed. We noticed that if it landed up side down that we had to manually flip it over but that sure did stop us from having fun! Also was easy enough to put batteries in and easy to charge with cord that was supplied. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of fun I received the red air hogs helix race drone. I have a ten year old son so we each took turns and played together. I was just excited as he was once it came to the door. You need to have 6 AA batteries to fly this thing. We went on a hunt and we were good to go. It took 2 mins to figure out the controls. I was so excited about how high this thing goes. It does flips with the back button, which makes flying more exciting. The right control helps it turn left or right and the control on your left controls the up and down movement. I was so surprised how much speed this drone has as well as how easy it is to turn around. My son Brayden asked everyday when this was going to arrive. It is a perfect drone for someone who is 10 yrs old. The controls are easy to use and he was able to do the flips and go up and down easily. He flew it just as well as I did. It gave us some time to bond as well doing something together. I think this would be a great gift for any kiddo or even an adult. I loved to use this with my son. he is 10 and this is the perfect age. I think you could go a bit younger, maybe 8 and as old as you would like. I wish this came with batteries, but it does say not included on the box. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Race Drone My son has been playing with the Air Hogs Helix Race Drone from Bzzagent. The drone has been flying high above the trees and flipping and swirling. He loves it. The only down fall we have seen is when it lands upside down it won't take off it needs to be manually flipped back over to work. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My boys and Hubby love it! The Air Hogs Helix Race Drone is so much fun! The boys, 8 and 9 years old, and my husband were begging each other for a turn. There is no assembly, but you will need to charge the drone before use and you will need six AA batteries for the remote control. We had about 20 minutes of flight time after each charge, which is why I knocked off one star. It would be nice if it lasted a bit longer before needing to be charged. Still, I think the battery life is comparable to other, similar products. The drone is very light weight and sturdy. My 8 year old flew it and did tricks with ease. Everyone thought the tricks were really cool. The drone can flip in the air with the touch of one button. My other son was not that great at flying and crashed into the deck and let it drop from high in the sky each time. The drone proved to be durable and did not break.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome drone for beginner or advanced Received package and it is packed very well, but not over the top nor too many things to clip or undo causing frustration. Instructions are very easy to read. The Air Hog looks cool and once batteries were put in controller had a bit of juice in it for a practice run. Took a bit longer than anticipated to charge for next run. In beginner mode it was very simple for me to operate. You can definitely tell the difference when you switch it to advanced. The programmed tricks made me look like a pro to my kids until they figured out how I did it. The unit is sleek and can definitely take some hits. Seems to be a sturdy unit. It is not made for windy days or near any ceiling fans though. Its light weight will take off with breeze. I wish the charging was set up differently. Do not like that you have to plug unit into controller and controller into USB. Just the unit to USB I think would be better. I would give a 5 if the charging was not too many steps. It has been a lot of fun to play, and with the "bumpers" it makes me not as nervous to fly it and let it drop. Everyone in our family has been taking turns to try it! Be careful around dogs. Our dogs died to jump up and grab it out of the air like a ball. The Air Hog Helix Race Drone is for all ages and has been a ton of fun! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Initial Charge/setup After opening the package and reviewing the directions, we put the batteries (6 AA) into the charger and plugged the drone into the charger. It took 30 minutes for the blinking red light (that shows it is charging) to turn green to show it was fully charged. There is an option to charge the drone via a USB cord hooked up to the computer, which I think is a great idea. It will save on batteries. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
