WowWee FlyTech Bat: Preview and UnboxingPosted by Peter Redmer on Friday, 6 June 2008
I have to say, after some time playing with the new FlyTech Bat from WowWee today, I am impressed, and I'd like to get you a quick preview of what's in store.
You may be surprised to hear me say that, given that the Bat only has one control (speed/height) and is aimed towards a younger audience. That being said, I really enjoyed flying the Bat and it was great fun, and here's why:
- super easy to get up and running
- quick charge time (about 4 minutes)
- great flying time (didn't time specifically, but I'm guessing about 5-7 minutes)
- hovers nicely
In addition, with a little practice, the Bat can be controlled accurately, and by circling it around, you can steer it quite well. (It only turns in one direction.) Finally, I was able to do some fun aerobatics by throttling the speed, making the Bat swoop around, and run into walls, too! Finally, I love the colors of the Bat. It's definitely a cool looking toy.
That's enough for now - so, are you excited about the Bat? Can you envision buying one of these for yourself or for the kids? What about possible hacks? I'd love to hear what you think.
Here's a sneak peek of the FlyTech Bat in action:
