What It Is
Air Hogs Adventures Police Patrol is a motorized playset with a thethered helicopter that's easy for young pilots to fly. The helicopter unit is laid out on the large fabric playmat designed to look like a city. There are cut-out buildings, targets, and accessories that kids can set up on the playmat. Kids can launch cannons from the helicopter and pick up and transport accessories with the hook. The helicopter has 360-degree rotation. When play is done, all the pieces fit onto the base so they won't get lost.
The controls are fairly easy to operate. Pull the lever on the control stick to regulate the speed and move it from one side to the other to control direction. Push the red button to fire the cannons.
The Police Patrol set comes with a playmat, a tethered helicopter control station/play piece storage, eight pick-up accessories, four buildings, a decal sheet, and a user instruction guide.
