The The Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Quadcopter Drone Instruction Video
This is the only “Star Trek” drone we found at Toy Fair 2016 this year, however it satisfied every dream we had for the toy. Called Enterprise-A for brief, it changed the original ship in 2286 after the very first Enterprise was damaged when Kirk flew to the Genesis Planet to rescue Spock.

Being the first ever version of the Enterprise that actually flies this will be a must buy for Star Trek fans.

Things We Like About Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Drone
A lot of thought has gone into this model to make it look authentic it has 10 different Light and sound functions including a phaser and warp factor sound.
Even though it is longer and sleeker looking than the usual quadcopter it is still based on the same principles, but to get the Star Trek look they have hidden the spinning propellers in the main saucer section of the Enterprise.
Though it doesn’t look particularly durable users are saying that they have crashed it a number of times with no damage.
Things We Didn’t Like About Star Trek Enterprise Drone
If you haven’t used a quadcopter or drone before it might take some time to get used to the controls and will probably result in a few crashes.
We would suggest limiting your flying to indoor use at first before venturing outdoors with it. Some reviewers are speculating that it will become a collector’s item so you might want to keep it in nice condition just in case.
Is The Spin Master Star Trek USS Enterprise Drone Worth The Money?
The $129.99 price tag is fairly expensive for a quadcopter, you can get drones with built in cameras that work well for the same price.
What you are paying for here is the unique Star Trek design and maybe a quadcopter that will become a collector’s item in the future. It also makes a nice display piece. For Star Trek fans or Drone Collectors I don’t see the cost being an issue.
Where Can I Buy The Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Drone?
Spin Master and their flying RC vehicle Air Hogs range is available in most Toy Shops, collectors and RC Stores as well as big online stores such as Amazon. Amazon is always worth taking a look as you can read the most up to date reviews from genuine users.
If you are a significant Trekkie the chance is that your mind is going to already be comprised pertaining to the purchase of this Star Trek Enterprise Quadcopter Drone. Those thinking about TV collectibles may intend to speculate and also pick this up as a collector’s item.
We believe that Air Hogs have actually got the style spot on. To see your very own the real world mini version of the Starship U.S.S Enterprise NCC-1701-A Quadcopter Drone cruising through the air boldly going where no man has actually gone before is simply amazing!
