Featuring included Sonic Combat Module for dogfighting with up to 5 other Aerobird Challengers.
Everyone dreams of piloting their very own state-of-the-art aircraft. But even if you spend
years at flight school you're not going to be able to soar above the local park performing
barrel rolls whilst dogfighting with fellow aviators, are you? (Well, you could, but the Civil
Aviation Authority wouldn't be too happy).
Thankfully the extraordinary Aerobird Challenger allows you to pull off incredible aerial
acrobatics and 'shoot' down rivals without incurring the wrath of local air traffic control -
and you won't even need a pair of goggles. The only downer is it's 2.5ft long and remote
controlled. Which means you can't actually sit in it. A shame, but what do you expect for
The ready-to-fly 3-channel Aerobird Challenger is one of the finest rechargeable flying
machines we've ever seen, as it can be enjoyed by relative novices and aces alike. That's
because it features a smart Multi Mode onboard computer which can be adjusted according to
experience/ability. The default Sport Mode is ideal for learner pilots who want to avoid
making total Dick Dastardlys out of themselves. Unlocking Pro Mode changes the Aerobird's
characteristics and allows for more complex and aggressive manoeuvres - perfect for loops,
dives, rolls and combat. Yes, combat!
Believe it or not the Aerobird Challenger comes with a Sonic Combat Module that allows you to
enjoy full-on aerial ding-dongs with fellow Aerobird flyers. Basically this nifty box of
tricks emits a sonic blast with an effective range of up to 80 feet. All you have to do is
lock on to your opponent's tail and 'fire'. When hit, the stricken plane emits a high-pitched
squeal and its motor is disabled for 10 seconds. Dicey, but pilots still have directional
control so they can manoeuvre into position for a counter attack or attempt a safe landing.
You control your magnificent flying machine via a fully-proportional single stick transmitter
with slide throttle and 'fire' button. It's not easy mastering the powerful Aerobird
Challenger but it sure beats donning daft shades and sitting in a classroom full of Top Gun
wannabes yelling 'Whoa, yeah!' at Kelly McGillis' legs. All right, it doesn't, but the
majestic Aerobird Challenger is still top flight entertainment. Chocks away? It'll take your
