Drone racing for kids is here!
The official Airhogs DR1 first person view racing drone kit will be on the list of must-have 2017 top Christmas toys. Children are becoming pilots, flying tiny drones through their neighborhood and parks. Drones for kids to fly are growing in popularity.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or what’s more commonly known as “drones,” consistently rank as one of the top-selling consumer products during the holidays. This year, however, there’s one drone in particular that’s expected to be on the list of top ten toys for Christmas 2017: the Air Hogs DR1 Race Drone.
The DR1 Racing Drone is an economical and innovative quadcopter UAV that kids of all ages are sure to love. Measuring just 3.5 inches long, 3 inches wide and 1.5 inches tall, it’s not a particularly large drone. But what the kid-friendly DR1 lacks in size, it makes up for in cool features.
So, what makes the DR1 stand out from the countless other drones on the market? In addition to its high-quality construction from an industry-leading manufacturer, the Air Hogs DR1 features a mounted camera that streams footage to your smartphone. Furthermore, the DR1 is packaged with a VR-like headset, allowing pilots to see a first-person view (FPV) of their flights.
Unless you’re an experienced FPV drone pilot, it may take some practice to familiarize yourself with the DR1’s controls. Thankfully, the DR1 features pressure sensors to prevent collisions. After you’ve become accustomed to the controls, however, you can disable the sensors and take your DR1 flights to the next level.
With so many high-tech features, it’s no wonder the Air Hogs HR1 drone is expected to be one of the hottest holiday toys for 2017. Plus, it’s hard to beat its $99.99 price. This new micro toy drone is recommended for children ages 5 and older. Stay tuned for a similar FPV Race Car. Priced around $100, you can drive using live stream from a camera on the car.
Stay tuned for the best new drones 2018!
