Air Hogs USS Enterprise-A quadcopter hits the skies

The new Air Hogs remote controlled USS Enterprise-A quadcopter from Spin Master is available now. The rather ingeniously designed model uses a hollowed out version of the saucer section to house the propellers inside. It also feature light and sound functions. Continue after the jump for more images and a video of it in action.





Here's some snazzy renderings too:




Here's Air Hog's promotional video:



This is just the latest, and probably most precisely controllable, flying Star Trek starship model. I've compiled a Trek Collective List of the previous efforts, which including frisbees, remote control and hand thrown gliders, balloons, and rockets!

Meanwhile Paramount have got themselves a much bigger version. As part of the promotion for Star Trek Beyond they supplied Youtuber Zach King with a hug blimb version of the Enterprise


He used it to make this quite surreal video.

The ENT blimp would look a lot better without the sec. hull and nacelles as a UFO!

The Air Hogs USS is one of the best quadcopter. It is the flying Star Trek starship model. Most of the people always consider it as a fun.
