Funky Planet: Iron Hawk Radio Controlled Helicopter Review

Iron Hawk RC Helicopter Review

The MyWebRC Iron Hawk Helicopter is a 12 inch radio controlled helicopter with a 2-speed engine that features an auto-stabilizer (gyro), 6 direction control (360° control) and a  rechargeable battery and charger.

We received a green MyWebRC Iron Hawk Helicopter to try out and we love how light, slender and stable the helicopter is.

My husband had some fun playing with it when it arrived and our  2 1/2 year old son was very excited to see a helicopter flying all around our house.

The Iron Hawk Helicopter is perfect for indoor play although it can be flown outdoors (with no wind/breeze). Since it has been pretty windy outside we haven’t had a chance to try the helicopter outdoors, our review is based on indoor play only.

The Iron Hawk Helicopter is the perfect first radio controlled helicopter for someone who has never flown one before because it is stable and it survives crash after crash.  It is also a wonderful toy for older children (recommended age is 14+).

The Iron Hawk Helicopter has 2 speed changes, on and off front-light control, 3-channels and a built-in gyroscope. The remote also offers a turbo button that allows it to go really fast, making it super fun to fly.

This aluminim-frame helicopter gives you up to 10 minutes of fly time before it needs a recharge. The package comes with an ac-charger that allows you to recharge it easily (60-80 minutes for a full charge). It also includes a replacement tail-rotor (blade) and two spare buckles.

Something extra that you get is a webCard for access to an online 3D RC simulator game that is fun to play, especially while you wait for the helicopter to charge. The game is perfect  for fine tuning your flying skills.

    My husband owned a radio controlled helicopter a couple years ago. It has since broke. I’d love to win this one for my teenage son. Thanks.

    Yes – we bought something similar when we were in Vegas. The infrared kept tripping the silent fire alarm. Security came to our room 4 times before we figured out what was happening. My husband sure had a great time with that until one of the grandkids broke it.
