We all loved playing with helicopters, airplanes, and remote controlled cars when we were kids. I am pretty sure now our kids love it too. It is a joy in its own to be able to drive a car the way your dad does (although it’s just a remote controlled one). But, we never had a car that could transform into a helicopter or into a plane, did we?
I remember when I was a kid I’m used to the TurboMan, Transformers, Voltron, and other similar cartoons that had people transforming into different vehicles and flying machines. I always prayed to get one such toy as well but never could. But, today I am very glad to see this RC Jumping Kart which is a 3 in 1 copter car from Kyosho! At least now, the fantasies of my kids will come true. Besides, the Transformers era is back again so I guess it’s pretty fascinating to have such a toy.
What is it all about?
Basically, this new toy from Kyosho is a racing car but with the power of flying. Amused? Don’t be. It is pretty simple actually – it is a racing car which can fly as well. Imagine, you are speed racing with your folk on the tracks and suddenly an obstacle comes in your way, all you need to do is to press the Power Boost button and the rotors will be activated. Your car will fly over the obstacle and be back on the track. Isn’t that cool? To me it is in fact one of the best things I have seen being integrated in a racing car toy.
Also, you can use the flexible suspension to make your car jump. Moreover, this is not just any ordinary flying machine that is hard to control like most of the others. This one has internal gyro sensors which keep the car stable while it’s flying around.
Here are some more specifications about the car:
– 3-band infrared transmitter
– Fly, drive, or hover action
– Racing gate included
– Fast-charge Li-Po battery
– Emergency stop button
– Batteries (not incl): AA x 4
– Manual (Japanese)
This RC Jumping Kart is available for $93. So if you really want to give something unique to your child this Christmas then this is the one you should go for!
