If you’re a fan of building blocks, then you’ll absolutely love spending time building this Minions model. We received this unit for a review from EverBuying.net
This building set includes over 200 pieces of tiny bricks that form a mini Minion character. Since the blocks are really small in size, the set is more suited towards older kids and adults. It’s also harder to build, making it more enjoyable for ages 9+ and up.
The LOZ building bricks are available in different cartoon characters that you can choose from. Each set comes with instructions on how to build your character, as it would be very hard to do it on your own. At the end, you’ll have a 3D figure of your favorite cartoon character.
This type of building bricks, being very small in size, requires patience and a lot concentration. This makes it a wonderful learning tool for young adults and a relaxing hobby for adults.
EverBuying offers this set of building bricks for a little over $3, a fantastic price that will allow you to buy many sets without breaking the bank.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid or an adult, flying a mini drone is a whole lot of fun! Our review today covers the JJRC H20 Hexacopter, which was provided to us by our friends at Gear Best, the premier retailer of gadgets and electronics with free worldwide shipping.
Features of the H20 Hexacopter:
- A mini hexacopter with remote control.
- Charges via USB, cable included.
- Charge time: about 30 minutes for a full charge.
- Flying time: up to 6 minutes.
- Battery operated remote control, requires 2 AA batteries (not included)
- Functions: Up / Down, Forward / Backward, 3D rollover, Turn Forward / Backward, Sideward Flight, Headless Mode, Hover, One Press Automatic Return
What’s In The Box:
- The Hexacopter.
- The battery.
- USB cable for charging.
- 6x Spare Propellers.
- A screwdriver.
Setting Up Your Hexacopter:
Set up process if fairly easy. First thing you’ll have to do is find 2x AA batteries for your remote control, which aren’t included in the box. Once that is sorted out, all you have to do is switch on the remote control and the hexacopter and wait a few seconds till they pair. The controller as well as the hexacopter’s LED light will keep flashing. Until you hear a beep and the flashing stops, you’ll know they’re now paired and ready to fly.
My drone came in charged. But you’ll soon have to charge it again, to do that, you’ll have to pull out the battery, connect the cable and plug it to any USB port to charge. It takes about 30 minutes to fully charge.
Flying the JJRC H20 Hexacopter:
Looking at the small size of this hexacopter, you’ll think it’s easy to fly. But it’s not, it takes some practice and getting used to, but this is all part of the fun!
You are most likely to fly the drone into things, it will pump and crash everywhere, so it’s best to fly it in an open area where there’s nothing to break. To be honest, I didn’t follow my own advice here (or common sense) and I tested flying the drone in my office. It pumped into the walls, fell crashing everywhere, and surprisingly, it held up pretty nicely. The propellers are still intact and the bumpers are all in place, except for a tiny dent on one.
In the included manual, there are many tips you can follow for learning how to fly the hexacopter. You’ll eventually be able to perform many tricks including rollovers, which is the hardest to perform.
The Pros and Cons:
My least favorite part about this hexacopter is the battery. The battery dies rather quickly, you’ll be lucky if you get 10 minutes out of it. Lucky for us, it charges quickly too. However, the small drone is an absolute fun to play with. It’s fast and light, and it’s LED light make it fun to fly at night. It also makes a great practice toy, in case you want to fly a real drone.
