A couple of weeks ago we headed down to the RAF Museum in Colindale. It’s not the first time we have visited as we are quite local, but this time it was for something a little different, a chance to see and try out the range of remote control helicopters and toys from Propel.

There is a range of helicopters and for the younger beginner users, they can try the Hovermaxx LED remote control UFO. This was definitely my boys’ favourite. They had a great time challenging each other to keep this in the sky for the longest in the specially set up Space area.

You can see a video of the Hovermaxx in flight here:

The boys got a Hovermaxx each to take home too so we have been continuing the fun at home.

The kids had fun taking part in all the other helicopter related activities too, from pinning the propellor on the helicopter

The RAF museum is free to enter and if you have children who are interested in planes, then they will love it. Children of 5 or 6+ will also love the Hovermaxx from Propel and once they have mastered that, then there are so many other helicopters from Propel for them to explore too.
