I received this toy from BzzAgent to try in exchange for my honest review of it. This "drone" is on target! Although initially I thought the blades of the helicopter seemed a bit fragile, they took many beatings while my son learned to fly it. They chipped on a lot of the edges after the first week, but it was still flying solidly despite that. It took my 10 year old son about 3 days of flying with it every day to perfect the flying to a point where he could challenge adults to flying duration. My son is a video gamer, so this was actually longer than I expected. When I tried it, I noticed the controller is very sensitive, so it does take a practiced touch to get it to fly longer than 30 seconds.
The helo didn't run through as many batteries as I expected with the continuous use that my son gave it. It seems that after it takes a beating from hitting the floor, you will have to adjust the one control to stop it from spinning around. The helo has a pretty loud buzzing sound when it's flying, so it won't be sneaking up on you…but my son loved that sound. I could always tell when it crashed, even if I wasn't in the room because it made a horrible racket of blades hitting the tile! I also noticed that when used on carpet and the helo crashes to the floor where the blades will spin until the remote is released, that it will pick up hair and lint on the metal "stem" below the blades. Long hair can build up there pretty quickly! So I now realize I need to have my daughter vacuum more regularly (ahem!) or have my son play in another room! We used tweezers to pull it off and it went right back to flying high.
The tank's "hatches" for the helo are definitely fragile, but since the main focus is the helicopter, that didn't seem to matter. One down side to the tank is that it will not turn when stopped. The tank must be moving in order to negotiate any turning. It seemed to be "one wheel drive" so one wheel would control the turn and movement so if it didn't have momentum already, it would really just hiccup while jumping in small increments in the direction of the desired turn. My son figured out how to maneuver it by the second day by almost making it "drift" by going really fast then turning it. But someone suggested we put rubber bands on the wheels to see if that helps it.
The packaging was pretty easy to open and I appreciated the "hand twist" off screw tops that my son could manipulate without any help. The instructions need a little help, but we managed. (For example, it says to be sure to close hatch #1 first on the tank, but it doesn't show which one is #1 and there were no markings on the hatches either.)
All in all, I think this was a great toy for my son and it was durable enough for him to play with it for hours for days on end. We've had it about 2 weeks now and it has withstood a lot of abuse but still working.
Although I got this one from Buzz Agent for me to review, I do think it's a toy I would buy for other kids.

Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Air Hogs Shadow Launcher Car Copter:

My son couldn't wait to get this with a gift card he earned. He loved having the helicopter fly out of the car and the car was easy for him to control- the car won't go backwards though so not all that user friendly but really, the helicopter is the cool part anyway! Our whole family had a blast the first night! It is the first helicopter we could all actually control and make fly where we wanted. The charge stayed long enough as well. It was all awesome until the next morning when my son raced downstairs to fly it some more and it wouldn't fly. The propellers would spin but it would not fly. He was so upset!! After reading several reviews we found this is very common. Huge disappointment! We returned it for a store credit. I suggested trying another one but my son was so distraught about it breaking and all the bad reviews that he opted for something else. Bummer. If they could get it to work for more than one day it would be 5 stars for sure!
