Air Hogs Helix 360 – Hands on Review

Air Hogs is stepping up their game by releasing the Helix 360 which is a 4 channel helicopter that is similar to the size as the Havoc Heli and the Syma S107. I got my hands on one and layout the good and the bad of it below.

The Good

  • Small and lightweight – about the size of a Havoc Heli

The Bad

  • Controllability¬†– takes a lot of practice to control it well
