We thought the Air Hogs Supernova, an interactive drone you control with your hands, would be too tough for our six-year-old son to play with. We were wrong. A few minutes after it came out of the box, the Supernova was flying around our living room, with his little hands chasing after it, trying to regain control. Within a week, he could hover the drone in his palm, looking like a happy little magician before laughing and shooting it up in the air.
While the Supernova does take some time to get used to, it doesn’t have the same steep and frustrating learning curve of most small drones, which are typically tougher to control than the big ones.
