Air Hogs Drop Strike

Air hogs is gearing up for the holiday season with some new heli’s along with some hybrids of others. Enter the Drop Strike.

The drop strike is a combination of the Fly Crane, Hover Assalt, and Sharp Shooter. The Drop Strike has the ability to drive on the ground, then drop it’s wheels, fly off, and start shooting. This heli is full of action.

The price is good as well and can be found for about $40. It does lack a gyro so control and stability won’t be as good as the Gyroblade or Repy
