Air Hogs DR1 FPV Race Drone: Record or Live Stream Video Footage. #AHRaceLikeAPro

Let me tell you right now.  Pretty much any children (and big kids) you know are going to want one of these. I mean, I want you to read on and learn all about the tech and stuff but frankly if you want to avoid the inevitable Christmas shortage or to guarantee "Oohs!" on any birthday from age 5-85 plus, just buy it now.

Air Hogs DR1 FPV Race Drone

You see, drones are BIG right now and this beauty with a built in camera and viewing goggles  (smartphone required) is cramming high price gadgetry into an affordable package. Even my cynical 21 year old who has what he would class a "proper" drone has had tons of fun with the Air Hogs DR1 FPV Race Drone and produced some pretty cool footage for this little YouTube video.

From the day the drone was delivered to our house there has been a constant queue of children fighting over whose turn it is. We have found letting one wear the goggles while the other flies the drone placates them briefly but there is something rather fabulous about controlling the drone while getting a live streamed bird's eye view of your surroundings, inside or out.
