Up till this point, an RC vehicle with first-person point-of-view, shoots projectile and records the action is something of a dream machine for kids and adults alike. That is the kind of rig reserves for the tinkerers and the pros like the Game of Drones, but thanks to Hasbro’s Nerf, that dream is soon to become a reality – without the need for us, amateurs, to tinker with anything. Absolutely nothing. The Nerf N-Strike Elite Terrarscout RC Drone, as it is called, is ready to strike out-of-the-box – complete with tank-like threads to crawl over the most punishing terrains your office or backyard has to offer and the best part about this little guy is, it lets you unleash Nerf’s foam darts from its 18-dart clip shoot Nerf’s foam darts at unsuspecting enemies from a safe distance.
Actually, that’s not the best part, well, more appropriately, that’s one of the best part cos’ when all its done, you can review the entire glorious victorious proceedings in high definition 720p video, recorded on an SD card, in first-person view, of course. The onboard camera lets you go around blind spots, allowing you to navigate this miniature menace, via an integrated LCD display on the controller, towards your intended target without exposing yourself. Well, that sounds like fun and you know what we see? We see a new level of office warfare is brewing.
But before you retrieve your credit card to pay for one, you have to know that this thing don’t come cheap. Expect it to run you back at a cool 200 bucks and it won’t be hitting the stores, on or offline, until this Fall. But if you have the money to drop, the Nerf N-Strike Elite Terrarscout RC Drone is definitely worthy to be on your holiday’s shopping list for 2016.
