Toys that can fly or toys that are robotic are huge right now. I am a huge advocate of toys that develop learning or get children asking questions. I am also very keen on getting my children outside playing. Of course when we got our puppy Lilly one of the things the children promised was joining me on the regular walks. They have done to some extent but other ways I can encourage outdoor play is always appreciated!
Drones are the toy of the future and becoming increasingly sophisticated but also more manageable. I remember reading stories at first of people flying them and losing them as they took off on their own flight path. However, now they have been refined and are much more accessible for all.
We were recently sent the Air Hogs FPV Race Drone and it fast became something they all wanted to try out! This Air Hogs drone is for children aged 8+ and therefore I anticipated it would be easier than some for tweens to control and I was right.

Air Hogs DR1 Official FPV Race Drone
Headset for smartphone
This drone has some unique features including an FPV (first person view) which means that via the app you can view the area from a cockpit position. This was really good for seeing what everything looks like from another angle. The drone is small enough to be used indoors which is fun for everyone. The battery gives about 12 minutes flying time when charged and it charges up in just 30 mins. The onboard camera allows you to take pictures and this is something I am looking forward to trying out when I want to do some outdoor blogging stuff!
I recently mentioned to my cousins that we had been sent the Air Hogs FPV drone and they were soon checking it out and wanting a go. This just shows that drones are toys for all even big kids in their 20’s.
This lightweight toy certainly packs a punch and competes with the big guns for racing. It brings out the competitive side in us all and as a family, we have really enjoyed trying this out.
The Drone costs approx £99 although I have spotted it on offer in Amazon for £60 which you can see by following this link Air Hogs FPV Race Drone.
Have you flown a drone yet? What do you think of them?
