Podcast: Airhogs Hypertrax vs Hyper Actives 5


The all terrain Air Hogs Hypertrax battles out against the flippable Hyper Actives 5, watch our video to see which ones our testers preferred.

The Hypertrax features all-terrain treads to get over almost any obstacle, and a slim enough body that if it ends up upside-down, it can keep going. For young, inexperienced RC drivers, this car is perfect for just zipping around and getting used to steering. I like that the remote and charger are self-contained, however I have found that because the AA batteries are charging the car and the remote, it drains quickly. It takes a little over 20 minutes to charge up the vehicle, and then it drives for about 10 minutes.

The Hyper Actives 5 features a motorized wheel on top, assisting in any flip-overs. It has a bit more power (and it’s own AA powersource) so it’s going to win races, but it works best on asphalt or other smooth surfaces, it got a little hung up in the grass.

Angry Birds GO! Pirate Pig Attack Jenga game

My son had a great time with this set as well. We liked how the game play is similar to the other Angry Birds (and Angry Birds Star Wars) games by Hasbro, but introduces something new with the launchers and cars.

Check the Angry Birds Go! Jenga Pirate Pig Attack Game
out on Amazon.
