The Best RC Flying Toys
The Air Hogs Hyper Disc
The Air Hogs Hyper Disc is a toy that hovers and floats.You can inflate it with helium or air and watch it defy gravity as it flies above the ground. It is lightweight and is 3 feet in diameter. It is a great toy for kids of all ages. It flies like a Frisbee and floats like a blimp. It can be toss, roll it, bounce it, flip it and perform tricks. Strong winds must be avoided as it can blow away.
The Air Hogs Vectron Wave is a hovering UFO without a remote control; you control it with your hand instead. You can use your feet, knees and even your shoulders for more advanced moves. It uses smart Wave Control altitude sensing to rise up and glide above obstacles that are around it. It is a UFO that you can control. It comes in two colors - black and blue. Its lightweight foam construction allows it to bounce off walls, ceilings, and other indoor surfaces to continue its flight path. It is damage resistant even if it does crash.It is for kids 8 and older. It is for indoor use only and requires 6 AA batteries for the charging base.
The Air Hogs Elite Hexil X4 Stunt is a high-performance RC quad-copter.You can back flip, barrel roll and 180 flip simply by pushing a button. It can move incredibly fast and incredibly crash-resistant Exoframe protects the rotors from damage. It has a 4-channel control that can easily outfly any other RC vehicle or any obstacle. It can provide many hours of enjoyment. It can do 180 flips and has on board gyroscopic stabilization that maintains flight stability.
How do RC toys work? They work through a portable transmitter that sends out radio waves to the circuit board the toy and its antenna. The signals that originate from the transmitter activates the motors inside the toy as commanded by the transmitter. It is the electromagnetic waves that make a remote control unit possible. There are different types of electromagnetic waves like radio waves, magnetic energy, electrical energy, light, and x-rays that can travel at the speed of light.
The LED sends infrared radiation on an average remote control but they are some that use radio waves instead. It is located at the top of your remote control unit, a small-emitting diode (LED) where the invisible red light comes from and powers up your TV or other devices. It is not visible to the human eyes but a rattlesnake can detect the infrared heat. The low-energy electromagnetic radiation is of a limited range and cannot penetrate through a wall or turn on your neighbor's TV or DVD. A short pulse of infrared is made up of a series of on/off infrared pulses that signal a binary code. Computers used binary codes, zeros and ones.There are many combinations that are possible with a computer and the same with a remote control.
Radio control give you control over greater distances than infrared remotes. The larger the transmitter and the larger the antenna the more the signal can be transmitted without interference.This enables one to operate radio-controlled cars, boats, trucks, robots and airplanes from a handheld radio transmitter box that sends the signals from an antenna to the antenna of the device that you are going to control with it.
There are two types of radio control, single-channel radio control and multi-channel radio control. The single-channel radio control is like a switch that can be turned on and off at a distance using radio wave. It is only able to turn off a device on or off and nothing else is possible.
Multi-channel radio allows one to have more control over the remote device like a radio-controlled car. You can steer it, make it go in reverse or go faster or slower. It can send a series of digital pulses instead of a basic on/off signal or coded analog pulses which makes it capable of doing more than an one-channel radio.
The electric motor is a servo motor that steers the radio-controlled car. They rotate to how long they receive an electric current, they have built-in electronic feedback mechanisms which are based on potentiometers that enable them to rotate by the correct amounts.
