What It Is
What It Is
One of the newest R/C toys in the Air Hogs line is HyperActives, miniature remote-controlled, self-righting stunt cars. Charge your HyperActives car using the remote, and then you can make the car do all kinds of different stunts. The car goes up to 20 MPH real time. You can control the car from 100 feet away. The foil on top of the car allows it to right itself if you run it into a wall or flip it over so the action just keeps going. The car comes with rubber all-terrain tires and foam tires that kids can switch to drive their HyperActives car on different surfaces.
Why It’s Fun
The name says it all: HyperActives are fast. Kids will like being able to control the car from longer distances than most R/C cars and that HyperActives right themselves instead of kids having to stop the play and turn the car over.
Who It’s For
HyperActives are for ages 12 and up.
What to Be Aware of
A rechargeable lithium polymer battery, which is included, powers each HyperActives car. The remote requires six AA batteries, which are not included.
It takes between 30 and 50 minutes to fully charge the car. To charge, simply connect the car to the remote.
The car can be used indoors and outdoors. However, if you play outside, be sure to keep the car in a dry area away from water.
The car mostly rights itself. There are times when it will get on its side and may need a nudge. The best way to get the car to right itself is to vary the throttle. In other words, give it a little power then back off, rather than just holding the throttle down.
