Air Hogs Aero Ace Sport - THE BEST

This was my first air hogs - in fact this was my first R/C airplane ever. It got eaten by my friends dog after hours and hours of fun. Worst day ever. After thousands of dollars on planes heli's and simulators I still think back to how this plane is the SOLE reason I first learned how to fly. Back then flying 6 channel heli's and giant planes was only a dream of mine. Now that it has become reality I CRAVE to have this plane again. IMO everything went down hill for the little 40 dollar air hog toys found at the we sell everything store's!!! nothing air hogs made ever seemed to capture the awesomeness of the green sport plane!! charge it up, tape a dime on the front and have a BLAST.

I feel as if somewhere on this planet there is one kicking around brand new unopened. I would do ANYTHING to get my hands on my first love again.

Does anyone know where it can be found!? Is it even possible!? Back then i had every aero ace. I spent ALL my money on them and flew countless ones into tree's or into the oblivion to never be seen again. However NONE every compared to the sport!!!!

I know that the original company that made it is silverlit - however the interwebs has turned up nothing. WHERE DO I FIND HER. I MISS HER. I NEED HER. its great to know I had just as much fun with my 40 dollar toy as I do flipping giant spinning bladed heli's and flying every plane I've owned since!!!! not to mention purposly flying into stuff without having to worry about replacing parts!!! OHHH THE NOSTALGIA !!!!!!

did anyone else love this thing as much as me?!

It looks similar to the Air Hogs "Sky Stunt" plane I saw today in a Target store for $40.00 Canadian. Push the one channel button on the controller and it does stunts.
This store opened one month ago in Mississauga Ontario and they have a few of these airplanes.

They also have an Air Hogs small electric free flight "Wind Flyer" airplane for $15.00.

This one happened to be my first Airhog, same colour and I love it, I also got two Acro jet and the famous bi-plane but years gone by, they are no longer with me. Yes I miss them.

Those "sports" were great little planes. Best 2 channel RTF ever IMO.

Mr. Slender Man, that was almost too painful to continue watching. I give you an A+++++++++++++++++++ for effort though.

thank you weewings! my gosh i was so upset by this. imagine a kid getting one like that and an angry parent to go with it. toysrus doesnt allow rc returns which is dumb IMO. i got so much crap for that video i had to disable the comments, i got the usual, "youre supposed to fly it outside. it says so on the box" uhh no it doesnt... i flew in the gym as a control so wind couldnt affect it. regardless of being in the gym if it were to work right it would have the power to fly in that gym. must have been a bad motor. i flew it outside with the same results. luckily their customer support saw my video, took the old one to their warehouse for testing and sent me a free sky stunt that i later gave away for free on a youtube contest. i didnt want to give it another try.

It acts as though the rudder was not working. I have seen the two engine ones that use thrust differential fly quite well. I did see this same model on YT and it flew pretty good so you definately got a bad one.

Good to hear that CS took care of it.
