Kinda fun! – Fly Hawk Toy with a Bamboo Chip + 3 Rubber Band (10-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-Very aerodynamic- will glide for a LONG time -Pretty sturdy compared to what I expected -Makes a neat gift -Lack of instructions is not a problem -There's a whole bunch of them! -The price is a steal
Cons:
-Does not flap its wings for very long -Can be kinda gimmicky to construct -Some pieces were accidentally glued together
Other:
I was at first worried it would be complicated to construct them out of the received pieces, but lack of instructions proved not to be a problem- you can make one in under a minute if you try :) There were some minor problems during construction, such as the wings being accidentally glued together at the edges, but these were easy to fix. I expected it to flap its wings slower (thus, flying faster), but it seems to expend all its energy in just a few seconds. It does glide VERY far after that. It is pretty big when constructed. Considering you get 10 of these in the package, you can, for example, gift a bunch of them to your friends- that's what I'm going to do :)
Bottomline:
Neat flier/glider for that price. Although they're not working quite as I expected them to, I can easily recommend this flying gadget :)
