Earlier in this series (Round 3), I talked about the radio controlled cars my brother and I would get each Christmas. Well, one year my Christmas list deviated from the norm, I asked for a radio controlled hovercraft.
The Nikko Air Bullet Hovercraft didn’t last very long. My memories of it include:
- Waiting forever to charge the battery.
- Racing it down a neighbors driveway that was covered in ice.
- Finding out that it wasn’t water proof, like the commercial actively demonstrated, after hovering it in the pool.
- Watching my brother take it apart after it had been deemed never to run again.
In hindsight, I probably should have asked for a Typhoon.
