Since it is summertime in my part of the world, it is always a blast to play with some remote controlled toys. In the case of the Heliquad 2.4 by Interactive Toy, I’m glad they put out a quad-copter model.
I had a chance to try this out, and let me tell you one thing: It is a lot of fun. The only thing is that I had a trouble with its controls. In fact, the box says that it is Indoor/Outdoor, but as soon as I turned on the blades, it just went one direction (no relation to the popular band).
So I took it outside, and the Heliquad 2.4 zipped off. I had a hard time finding it. Yeah, that was a bit of a shocker, and I have to say that control was still an issue. I have to admit that I wasn’t able to get a good handle on the controls before the battery gave out on the quadcopter itself. Just to let you know, I usually try out products for about a few hours, and I don’t think I could master the controls of the Heliquad 2.4 during that time.
It might take me a while before I can learn how to do flips with this guy, but with some patience, I can learn. Just to let you know, the quadcopter is USB charged, but the remote requires 3 AA batteries.
If you want to learn more about the Heliquad 2.4, part of the BladeRunner Series from Interactive Toy, you can get it on Amazon for about $55.94. Check out information about more Interactive Toy products here. They have some serious flying things that are fun to play with.
