Ever wonder what it would be like if cars could fly? Now kids can live that thrill and see a Hot Wheels RC take to the skies with the Street Hawk. This vehicle offers a cool combo of on-ground remote-controlled performance, like proportional ground steering, plus the aerial performance of a plane.
Box includes: 1 vehicle, 1 transmitter, 1 USB cable, and 1 pair of replacement propellers.
My son Aidan loves anything that has to do with cars and airplanes, so he was super excited to see the two put together. He got out of school and seen the box sitting in the corner beside my desk and immediately wanted to open it.
It wasn’t hard at all to get running. I put 6 AA batteries in the remote (not included) and charged the Hot Wheels Street Hawk Flying Car with the USB that comes inside the remote. It took about 40 minutes to charge it, so I should’ve opened it before he got home. He was so impatient and giddy, asking every 5 minutes when it was charged lol.
As soon as it was fully charged, we took it outside. It works on the gravel in my driveway without hesitation, but the full speed happened on the street beside my house. We had tons of fun playing with it. The range on this car is super awesome, he could drive it at least 100 ft up the street without having to turn it back around.
My uncle Dave came over and he and the kids were playing. He would drive the car while the kids tried to chase it down. For such a small car, it is super fast. It was funny and cute to see them chasing it and barely catching it.
With just a flip of the switch, it turns into the flying airplane mode. The engines spin much quicker in the airplane mode. This is what gives it the momentum to catch wind and fly. It takes about 10 feet to get it to lift, but then it flies pretty quickly.
It took some time to get used to, but as soon as he got the hang of it he had a blast. At first he was making quick turns and it would stall and crash down to the ground, but the wider turns eventually helped him to keep it in the air for longer periods of time.
Even after all the crashes, this thing is still going strong. That is amazing because it’s very lightweight, so I wasn’t sure it was going to survive in the hands of my son very long. I was wrong, VERY wrong. The only thing was the propellers, and good thing it comes with replacement. His nose dives turned into a lost propeller which are very small and I couldn’t find it.
Aidan loves this, so it’s perfect for little boys who love remote control cars!!
