EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Catch big air! Defy limits, expectations, gravity with the Air Hogs Extreme Air Board! This drone has two ways to fly: stunt board mode or paraglider mode. Carve up the skies as an extreme stunt boarder then easily switch into paraglider mode to catch some big air. But the excitement doesn't end there. This board has an extreme sports stunt button for fun tricks as well as flight assist technology to help with auto-launch and land to allow for a stable and steady flight. Each drone comes with an Air Hogs Extreme Air Board, a controller, a user instruction guide, a paraglider attachment, an extreme sports athlete, a USB charger, a set of interchangeable controller precision sticks, 4 replacement rotors, and a rotor removal tool.

Is It Fun?

We had a lot of fun with this drone. It's surprisingly very easy to fly. Honestly, if you're not a drone pilot expert, you still should be able to pick this up pretty quickly and enjoy it. It might even make you want to work on the tricks. The directional and throttle sticks aren't very sensitive, which is good for beginners. Likewise, switching between modes, board and glider, is very simple. Plus, the instruction guide is actually easy to use with lots of pictures, explanations and tips for mastering not only how to fly, but performing really cool tricks. Lastly, it's nice that the USB charging cable lights up along with the board to let you know that it is on and charging. That being said, given the size of this drone, air currents can affect its flight. 


Who It’s For

This Extreme Air Board is recommended for ages 8 and up. We also recommend this drone for those who love drones, especially stunt drones. Also, with flight assist this is a nice drone for beginners.


What To Be Aware Of

This drone is recommended for indoor use only. Plus, it requires 2 AAA batteries, which are not included, for its controller. It is also designed to have a flight time of about 7 minutes with a range of 200 ft and charging time of about 40 minutes. Like with any drone be careful that the rotors are not spinning when holding this drone. Also, do not take off from your hand or try to catch it.
