2010 Award
Air Hogs Hawk Eye R/C Video Camera Helicopter
( Spinmaster $64.99 Score: )

Wow! was pretty much the universal review of the new remote-controlled helicopter from Spinmaster with a built in video camera.  "It really works" noted one of our senior toy testers. The age range is appropriately marked 12 & up. The on-board video camera can capture five minutes of video and is meant to be used indoors exclusively (of course our toy testers enjoyed bending the rules on this one).  Our testers also thought the video was decent- (320 x 240 pixels at full color).  It can also capture photos at 640 x 480.  Comes with its own USB cable so that you can download the files on your computer. The company has also added a video eiditing platform at www.airhogs.com.  Takes 3AAA batteries but you can charge the heli through your computer. The batteries are for the controller.

Our testers also really loved the control they had over the new Missile Launching Helicopter--but even our tween and teen testers thought the actual missiles (hard plastic projectiles) were not particularly a safe bet.  They did think that it was the most sensitive heli they had played with and were able to land it on particular pieces of furniture (and cross beams!) in their house.  We love when kids tell us that we should tell the company to replace the missles with foam or just get rid of them altogether! 

The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Age: Later School Years, Tweens, Teens. Award Year: 2010.
