MyWebRC Iron-Eagle Review...

ABCD Diaries
2010 Holiday Gift Guide:
Kids, 14+



We recently had the chance to review a remote control helicopter from MyWebRC.com, the Iron-Eagle.


About the Iron-Eagle Helicopter:
"The recently launched My Web RC Iron-Eagle Helicopter, by Groovy Toys (dba Grooyi), is a radio-control toy with an online/web component. It is designed to allow children to play in two "worlds;" they can play with the rc toy and also with a virtual replica of their exact toy online. This combination of an online-game experience and radio-control toy has never been done before and Groovy Toys is happy to bring it to market.

MyWebRC is an online game where you can play with RC vehicles. MyWebRC is also a line of radio-control toys.
All you have to do to play MyWebRC is log in with your facebook, msn, myspace, google, openID or yahoo credentials. You can do this by clicking on the logo for your preferred network on the top right of the page. Once you log in you will be able to play games and pimp your RC in the garage.
You can unlock games by collecting webCash and clicking the unlock button when you have enough webCash to unlock the game you want to play.
You can collect webCash by winning Trophies, Medals, and Badges when playing games."
What we thought: B and the kids had a ton of fun with the Iron-Eagle helicopter. The kiddos were a little too young to stay engaged with the computer simulation for too long, but B loved it and it would be perfect for teen boys(or even adults:) The website was easy to navigate and the quality of the game was pretty good. The actual RC toy was a huge hit. 4 year old A even learned how to fly the helicopter by herself and 2 year old D did pretty well with a little help. B and the kids even got brave enough to fly the sturdy little helicopter outside which led to several trips to the roof...I don't recommend flying it on a windy day until you are a little more skilled:) The Iron-Eagle worked really great indoors. I was a little worried at first because it seemed so fragile, but it is amazingly resilient! I loved how fast it could charge hooked up to the USB on the computer. If you have an RC lover or a computer game fan on your gift list, we definitely suggest checking out MyWebRC.com and the Iron-Eagle Helicopter! ABCD Diaries gives them both an A+!
