Air Hogs RC AtmoSphere by SpinMaster

The AtmoSphere looks like a blast from the box. Sounds like a “levitating” ball that will follow your hand.

Ok, so obviously I knew it didn’t levitate. I could see the propellers, I knew it was a miniature gyro-copter in a ball. What I didn’t expect was how hard this thing would be to control. I tried for 30 minutes. Put it down to recharge. Came back later. Nope, still impossible. I have experienced Air Hog products in the past and thought maybe I need to calibrate something. Nope, nada, zilch for instructions on what to do if it won’t stay above your hand.

I should note that our initial experiments were in the kitchen. Wide open, no breeze, and still the AtmoSphere would just take off which ever way it felt like going.

We have since tried it outside, and that was a disaster.

Playing with the AtmoSphere is like playing catch with someone that purposely throws the ball away from you every time they throw it.

Overall: 1 Star. Disappointing.

Description:
Soar to new heights with the Air Hogs Atmosphere. This powerful levitating sphere requires no remote control and hovers above any surface. Control it with the palm of your hand or watch it fly autonomously in any space. Its spherical shape allows the Atmosphere to smoothly bounce off walls and ceilings for non-stop flight. Complete with a palm-sized charging cradle, the Atmosphere is easy-to-use and recharge. Take control with the palm of your hand and discover the high-tech hovering power of the Air Hogs Atmosphere.
