Who would love this: Anyone (adults and kids) who love cool stuffs / drone toys/ technology-advanced toys
It’s not an everyday thing that we get to test out impressive cool drones with cutting-edge features. I was NERVOUS like a child meeting Santa when I received this Avatar RC Deluxe Banshee from Zing Toys. Equipped with “integrated bionics, aerodynamics, and precision machinery technology” - this toy provides loads of incredible fun!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Realistic & Bird-Like Flying Movement - How can anyone resist this gorgeous, dragon-like banshee from the visually-stunning Avatar? What captured me immediately is the realistic and rapid wings-flapping movement. It feels natural, bird-like, amazingly real. It replicates the flying motion of a bird - it soars through the air in perfect straight-line, circles gracefully, makes a U-turn in beautiful agility, maintains its altitude (with either height limit mode or free-to-play mode), elegantly avoids obstacles with its 6-axis sensor, and can travel up to 200ft away. I love the complex azure blue appearance and intricate patterns that uniquely belongs to this majestic creature from Pandora.
(2) Easy To Control - I was genuinely surprised when I saw my six-year-old gently tossed and controlled the movement of the banshee with such ease. I didn’t expect to see so many thrilling tricks, all within the command of a few buttons - speed adjustment of flapping-wings, roaring sound-effect, changing of directions, “emergency” landing, and many other manoeuvres. The greatest thing is - we get to run around outdoor (yes, exercise!), chasing the banshee and picking it up from wherever it landed.
(3) Light Weight & Durable - The Banshee is light-weight, with slightly pliable frame for the wings, adjustable tail (for manual speed adjustment), and kite-like soft fabric feature to withstand multiple “crashing” or any aggressive play. Our flying practices involve many uncontrolled downward-divings, and we can testify the durability of this toy.
(4) Rechargeable Batteries - Included within are 2 lithium batteries, USB charger, remote-control, and a mini screwdriver. I love that the Banshee battery is rechargeable (fully recharge within 20 minutes) and provides around 10 minutes of flight time each time. I also love the minimalist cardboard box.
