Air Hogs Hawk Eye is the low-cost Alternative to the Parrot AR.Drone
 
Buy Air Hogs Hawk Eye from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

The Parrot AR. Drone is a quadricopter piloted with an iPhone, iPod touch or an iPad that carries two cameras that deliver live video feed onto your iPhone. It is save to say that the AR.Drone is the hottest iPhone accessory on the market, but at $300 (Amazon) it is not affordable for everybody. Meet the Air Hogs Hawk Eye helicopter with built-in video camera. The Air Hogs Hawk Eye sells for only $49.99 on Amazon.

Of course the Hawk Eye is not as sophisticated as the Parrot AR.Drone. For starters you do not get a live video feed. The Hawk Eye records video during a flight mission. You need to connect the Hawk Eye helicopter via USB to a computer to download and watch the video. It would have been nice if Air Hogs would have integrated a Wi-Fi transmitter to watch the video on a computer during flight, but I guess at $60 that is not yet possible.

From a flight performance the Hawk Eye offers steady-fly that keeps the helicopter stabilized automatically in the air. Air Hogs also offers free online video editing software.

The Air Hogs Hawk Eye has been selected by The Toy Insider as one of the 20 hottest toys for the Holidays 2010. More details on Amazon. If money is no issue and you have an iPad or iPhone the AR.Drone is the way to go.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
