View Full Version : air hogs aero ace

A guy brought a air hogs aero ace out to the indoor last night. I tried and I have to say it kicks a$$. It uses thrust vectoring but it actually works very well. Flight times of 10 minutes and it is so light as to make it indestructible in flight. It got midaired about 3 times and was fine. Hit the walls whatever. I am going out today to get one as a xmas present for my son.
If any of you bring your kids or are a big kid a heart you couldn't go wrong for $50.
It is so small and light I don't think it would do very well outside on all but the calmest of days.

Bought an Air Hogs Storm Launcher for my girlfriend's brother today for Christmas. One of these things that goes on land/water/air/space/interdimensional voids/etc. I've seen some videos for these things, and I've gotta say its pretty tempting to get it out of the package!

The aero ace has a bunch of mods. Guy's are even ripping them apart and making completely new airplanes for them.
Very cool for the price.

WallMart has them for $40.00,Zellers for $50.00..
Like hillmanr2 says, these are a lot of fun and nearly indestructible.
The transmitter(27 MHZ) has a "trim knob" that balances the motor rpm for "straight flight".
Throttle is proportional but not too "linear" but you'll get "the hang of it"
Throttle is also "spring loaded" and when released, stops the motors.
Elevator is "fixed" in "up mode" (a little too much to my liking) and accent and decent is controlled throttle position. On mine, full throttle will actually "stall" the plane since it hasn't enough power to pull over the top of a loop.
It will turn tight enough to do tight "horizontal 8s" in a Gym...
As for "outdoors" the least bit of breeze pushes it "downwind" and is impossible to get back due to the stalling tendency at full throttle into the wind...
A fellow flyer built a 12" stick and tissue model with landing gear and with the Aero Ace system can do ROGs in the Gym...
Bang for the buck its hard to beat at a "level entry" for indoor electric...
