The Odyssey Toys Turbo Runner
Probably the coolest indoor- outdoor toy Santa has on his list this year, the Turbo Runner, is a toy that can go just about anywhere… this little fire cracker climbs walls and ceilings effortlessly and can perform a ton of different tricks that your kids and friends will love.
The Turbo Runner has different modes that you can easily switch allowing the quadcopter to go from flight to running mode, so it can run across walls and then sprint across ceilings … it can even run down staircases!
The lightweight quad is about ½ pound , measures 3.9″ x 3.7″ x 3.9″ and powers with a rechargeable 3.7V/250mAh battery that takes between 45 to sixty minute to be completely charged and that will provide you with about 5-8 minutes of play time.
The unit does take a bit of time to charge but honestly, the play time is so filled with excitement that the kids will not mind the wait. As a matter of fact, they will look forward to their new little friend being ready for action again.
Thanks to the cage case design that protects the unit and minimizes impact, the Turbo Runner can be used in different terrains and scenarios allowing users to explore and try many different tricks.
The unit which is available in your choice of orange/ black and neon green/ yellow, features :
•Indoor OR outdoor flyer
• Next Gen 6-axis gyros
• Rolling, protective cage
• Demo mode
• 360° flips
• LED lights
I was surprised with the kind of tricks the quad can do and if I have to be honest, the kids are not the only ones who enjoy them!
What’s in the box:
• Drone Unit
• Remote Control
• Lithium Ion Battery
• Battery Charger
• Spare Blade Pack
The Runner is fairly easy to operate and the kids will love learning new tricks with the quadcopter especially if they have friends around… A word of advice, you might want Santa to make sure the unit is fully charged when he places it under the tree or in the stocking as the little ones will not want to want to wait to start with the fun! I’ve always thought that Santa provides toys with batteries already in them though.
The Odyssey Turbo Runner has an MSRP $49.95. and can be purchased at Brookstone, Costco, Toys ‘R’ Us, RadioShack!
