Gifts for the Holidays: Shadow Launcher + Giveaway

We are so excited about this cool new remote control vehicle from Air Hogs. The Shadow Launcher has doors on the top that pop open to reveal and launch a helicopter!

When you place the helicopter in the car, it contacts pegs inside that complete the circuit for the car. So you can drive the ground vehicle around, then stop, open the doors with a press of a button and launch the helicopter right from inside the vehicle without switching remotes. My son is going nuts with this toy!

The only drawback that we have found is that the car does not have good control on hardwood floors. It does well on carpet, but the wheels don’t allow it to have good traction on a slick surface.

We still give this two thumbs up; it’s so exciting to be able to control two different types of vehicles with one remote control and the helicopter’s flight is smooth and steady. We didn’t even have to adjust the trimming, it was great right out of the box.
