Air Wars Battle Drones from MGA Entertainment are an exciting pair of durable drones aimed at ages 8+, that are ready to battle it out between each other. With two drones and two remote controls in the box, it’s perfect for a bit of healthy competition with friends and family or you can just practice with one of the drones yourself as they do take a while to get used to and be able to control successfully.
There is one red and one grey drone in the box, the same with the controllers. These have to be paired up together and we tended to pair matching colours to help us know who had which one. The remote controls require 3AAA batteries each which are included. The drones have a rechargeable pack in them that is simply charged through a micro usb cable.
Each drone has 4 propellers and the set also comes with 8 spares. There are also 10 weapons in various shapes that you can hook on to the edge to help destroy your opponents drone whilst having a battle. These are simple to hook on the edges and help to bring the other one down. The remote control is simple to use with three speed settings and four preset buttons to carry out various attacks with just one press of the button.
- Tornado Attack
- 360 Spin Attack
- Circle Attack
- Ram Attack
These help you to carry out a special move quickly and easily. You then have regular controls to move around. It definitely takes a bit of getting used to and I’d recommend you start on the slowest setting until you get used to controlling them. The more you try, the easier it is and as you get the hang of how sensitive it is they become more manageable.

So what did we think of the Air Wars Battle Drones?
They were incredibly fun and exciting for all the family. We had all ages in the room from 5 to 68 and everyone was eagerly watching the drones zoom around the room, wondering where they would go next and if they’d get into battle with each other. The atmosphere was great and everyone’s eyes where glued to the drones at all times. My almost 9yr old daughter enjoyed controlling them along with various adults. This is a fabulous toy set although does require space so a large room or outdoors is best. I think these would make an awesome Christmas present and provide hours of fun for everyone. They are quick to set up and don’t take long to charge so the battle can commence almost straight away. Why not check them out now?
