Air Hogs Vectron Wave is Out of this World Fun #VectronInSpace

Have you seen the new Air Hogs Vectron yet? I think it’s my favorite Air Hogs so far! It’s like a little space ship, madly twirling above the surface of the planet. Speaking of swirling above the planet, in celebration of Air Hogs 15th anniversary, they actually sent one of these cool little guys into the stratosphere! It reached an altitude of 100,259 feet in the air! The coolness doesn’t end there. To celebrate this first foray into space, Air Hogs is offering fans a chance to win a four-day trip to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama for a family of four!

#VectronInSpace Experiment

The #VectroninSpace Experiment took place in the Mojave Desert in California and required months of planning. The Vectron Wave made its journey up into the sky with the help of helium-filled weather balloon. Check out videos of the Vectron Wave and its space journey here!

Jacob and I didn’t quite get our Vectron Wave into space, but we did have a blast playing with it in our front yard! Yes, my son is in his pajamas. He was so excited to try it out that he didn’t even bother getting dressed. The Vectron Wave comes with a remote control and a catching stick. If you look at the first picture in this post, you can see my son holding it by the stick. That stick is very helpful in getting your Vectron off the ground. It can also be used for a game of catch with the Vectron Wave, although I am far too uncoordinated for that!

Check out that cool spinning action! The Vectron Wave is pretty easy to control. Just wave your hand under it and it will follow. It has altitude sensing technology to help it avoid obstacles. It got away from us during our play time and flew across my street without hitting a single garbage can or mail box. Luckily Jacob was able to catch up to it! That was before we figured out how to control it. We’re not really good at reading directions first! It does come with a remote, but that’s really for turning it off and charging it.

This has become Jacob’s favorite toy of the moment and we’ve spent quite a bit of time outside playing with it. I thought I had a video, but my camera ate it! I’ll get you a video next time we’re outside so you can really see it in action. I can definitely see the Air Hogs Vectron Wave making it on to tons of holiday wish lists this year!
