Christmas Thoughts: Round 5


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.

Mine was white. Not that it matters.

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.

Twin engines are better than one?
