AirTerminators RC helicopters bring laser dog fights into your life (video)

Most remote-controlled helicopters merely just let you fly around doing nothing special apart from trying to take out random passers-by or crashing into a wall after you've lost control.

That's not the case with the AirTerminators Super Combat Helicopters from little-known Terox Toys.

Rather than just letting you master flying, the AirTerminators feature an aerial take on the 1980s game Laser Tag, whereby you have two helicopters with a laser on each trying to blast each other out of the sky.

Making things harder to take down your opponent, you'll have to hit them at least three times. The first two will result in two customisable shields falling off the helicopter mid flight, and a third shot cutting the engines, sending the helicopter into a tailspin.

As you can imagine, it's great fun, as we found out when the company demoed the new attack helicopters to us at the London Toy Fair.

Due in the shops later this year, it certainly brings a new spin on the numerous remote-controlled helicopters available on the market at the moment.
