The REV Air box contains 1 car and 1 drone for perfect ground to air combat. The drone comes along with 1 Lithium polymer battery. However, you need to buy 4 AA batteries to run the car.
Features: Robotic Enhanced Vehicles (REV) is equipped with advanced tracking technology and sensitive sensors. These sensors detect the objects etc in path and steer their way through to avoid collision, especially the drone that is designed to avoid objects and take flight accordingly.
Once you have inserted the batteries in the car and charged the drone battery, all that you need to create your own battlefield is a simple app on your mobile that does the work of the controller. By downloading the R.E.V. Air app on the Smartphone or tablet, one can easily take charge of any of the vehicles. Just let the fun begin!

Advantages: The most positive feature of the toy is that it does not need any predefined track. You can comfortably play anywhere in the house or outdoors. The car runs well on carpets as well as wooden surfaces. Nonetheless, smooth flooring enhances its maneuvering capacity.
Since it can be controlled by phone or tablet instead of a complex controller, kids find it an engaging plaything and can keep themselves happy for a long time. This toy is equally engaging for adults too.
The lithium polymer battery also gives a decent charge for a good performance.
The app is easy to download and can be updated for optimum performance. Once you get the knack of assembling the drone unit properly, then with few practice sessions sky is the limit for the combat fun.
Disadvantages: Before you buy the product, kindly make sure that your Smartphone passes the compatibility test for installing the app. Since the app is the actual controller of your flights and combat, it only makes sense to have a compatible phone that can run this app without any hitch, else you will not be able to start or play with these wonderful vehicles.
The quad-copters need proper pairing as per the given instructions; otherwise the drone has a tendency to just take a straight upward flight and crash into things and get damaged. Remember, there are no additional props included in the packing, so the toy becomes useless if damaged.
Unless the firmware is calibrated properly, it does not function efficiently and may result in accidents of drone. Do keep the app updated for best gaming results.
Verdict: Move over video games and phone apps, because now real, live combat experience is here for one and all. Enjoy your flights and save your vehicle from opponent’s attack. May the best and powerful, skillful player win!
