ive seen it, its a target exclusive. It comes with a puch button standard computer gamepad, nothing special. With its it has some quite useful flight lessons, inluding flight basics and control reversal. With it you can simulate flight as a aero ace, denominator(whatever its called!) f-16, stormlauncher and the reflex. Overall its crap unless you are a total newbie.

All regards,

I just bought two for 2.48 per on clearance there. Haven't tried them, though I hope they are worth 2.48.

Now you gotta open it! Do a review. Pleaseeeeee? I want to know as well bc I saw one here when I was on my Aero Ace manhunt earlier this week but was in too much of a hurry to read the package.

Whoever has it, would it be ok if someone did a mini review sometime this weekend?

If you're looking for a simulator, you can download FMS for free. Just google it. You can even use a dual joystick game controller and somewhat get the feel of how things would work in real life. I've never tried the big spendy simulators. But i hear they are very helpful too. I've used FMS and it's helped me out flying my micro cessna.
I've never used this air hogs product either. Although i just saw a shelf full of them on clearance.

I give you a review, I have it,
I used to like playing it online, but these guys were just trying to sell plastic when they realeased it.
The main problem is I can't find the fullscreen mode, so it plays in a window impossibly small.
As a flight sim. if you play it five minutes it is enough..
I do not know what happened from the online version to the retail version, but it now sucks.
As for the controller, it may be woth it ( I never tried mine) as I already have Playstation type controllers conn. to my pc.
I doubt the controller is high quality, but if it works well that is a plus.
IMHO, They stopped caring about this product long before they released it!
You should not care either!
Someone else may have a more positive outlook though..

SO wait guys you're saying its a playstation type controller that you can use for pc games and it costs how much...2.48? if so I'm heading over to my local Target right now lol

Funny thing is I bought a PC game pad a month ago for 34.99 just like that one and returned it bc I felt I paid too much. If what you're saying is what I think it is, we just hit the jackpot

Yes the cool thing about this control pad is that it is a USB playstation type of pad,I doubt it has vibration, but it could.
Also a well kept secret is the toys at Ross Stores they always have a selection of controllers cheap I got the Revolution Playstation controller for $3.99 and on it the buttons and joysticks are configurable (you can pit them in any other position)
and the controller has a quality feel about it.. I will post pics if you guys want to see it.(I got them to use for robotics).
So, the airhogs Controller is usb so that makes it a bargain,
The other playstation controllers you need a USb adapter for them.

Right click on the screen and a option for full screen will pop up, but the frame around it doesn't get much bigger

There use to be a F3 key function that gave you a standing still point of view, Like you would be if you where really flying from one spot. Made it fell more realistic. But I don't know if that function still works or not.
