This giveaway is closed. Congratulations goes to Stacey.
I must say I was super impressed by the size of this toy, it is not a rinky-dink paper airplane by any means. This Iron Man flying RC Extreme Hero is HUGE! It’s a full 19” long and 13” at it’s widest point and looks awesome. The graphics on this RC are not cheap looking, the colors are bright and realistic, we were both impressed with how lifelike the features were compared to the “real” Iron Man. I was a little concerned when I saw it was made of foam, but it is not a flimsy foam- he is perfectly weighted for flying.
The instruction manual is pretty easy to understand and is written as if your super hero is about to go on a real mission with phrases like “Pre-Flight Hero Check” and “Pre-Flight Environment Check”, the manual include trouble shooting as well as a section on repair. We did as they recommended and watched the Flight Training Video at www.extremehero.com and found it very helpful in preparing it for flight and actual flying tips, from takeoff to landing.
We were excited to get it out of the box and give it a try. Luckily, it was really easy to remove it from the package- you know how important that is for eager little hands. It only took a few minutes to get it ready to go, the parts snap together, so if it hits something a little too hard it will most likely come apart at one of these joints for an easy repair, instead of just being destroyed. He is pretty easy to maneuver around obstacles as well. We flew him in a mostly open area but with a few trees to try out his skills.
The remote is a great size for little hands, and has a kid-friendly setup. With some coaching my little one had Iron Man soaring and gliding all over the yard, again and again. We had one bad landing but were able to put him back together very quickly and easily, he was flying again in no time. They have also included some extra propellers in the box- definitely needed. My only complaint is that it takes almost an hour to charge for less than 10 minutes of fly time. It does take 6 AA batteries for the remote control so be sure and stock up on those, especially if its for a present! Here is a great battery deal to get you loaded up.
We had an adult, a 5 year old, and a teenager test driving Iron Man and all were very impressed by this toy, so I would say that even at a $79.99 price point it is definitely worth it, this will be a hot hot toy for Christmas. It is the next best thing to suiting yourself up for a flight!
You can find the EB Brands Remote Controlled Extreme Hero Flying Toy for $69.88 from $79.99.
