This power flyer performs three flights with every launch.
Simply attach the two jets to the sides of the rocket, aim
skywards and launch - the rocket soars through the skies reaching
unbelievable heights. At launch peak it deploys the two Jet
Gliders, which then fly freely whilst the rocket begins descent...
going to need a really wide open space to fly this little
beauty. We took a few cars out into the middle of Dartmoor
to test several of Air Hogs latest releases - all of which
we loved incidentally.
Triple Booster consists of a rocket and two polystyrene
gliders. You must launch the rocket (with planes attached)
into the wide blue yonder with the aid of an elastic band
style catapult. Once gravity works its magic on the rocket,
and it starts to descend to earth, the two gliders are detached
and float slowly to the ground - while the rocket sprouts
blades and returns safely back to earth in the same way a
sycamore seed falls from a tree.
word of warning though. Keep your eyes on where all three
objects land (although the planes are hard to miss thanks
to the fact they are brightly coloured) otherwise you'll be
packing up and heading home early.
be warned that if you can get the height with the rocket,
the gliders can travel quite some distance if they get caught
by the wind. So make sure you are in a wide open space before
you even consider launching this.
a bit heavy handed, I managed to snap the tail off on one
of the gliders (easily done when you are trying to stick both
planes on to the rocket). The best thing to do - I learnt
this the hard way - is to put the gliders on the floor while
you set the rocket up. Then you can pick the gliders up individually
and place them on their slots. But, even if you do manage
to break off a wing, a bit of glue will soon have everything
back to normal (check that it is polystyrene friendly first
is incredibly good value for money and extremely well made.
Of all the Air Hogs toys we have seen in the office, this
is by far the best (when you take price, and amount of fun
generated, into the equation).
