The Spin Master group created Air Hogs in 1996 when they were consulted by John Dixon and Peter Manning, both British inventors. Their prototype of an airplane powered by compressed air had been rejected by other companies. Spin Master saw the plane’s potential, so they patented the technology and spent 2 years and a million dollars to perfect the toy.
Air Hogs’ first debut was in the spring of 1998 which was an immediate market hit. It was covered by TV shows, such as The Today Show, Live with Regis and Kathy Lee, and print magazines like Time and Popular Science.
This was followed by successful series of toys such as Zero Gravity RC Wall Crawler (a radio controlled Hummer-style vehicle that can be driven on walls), the popular Aero Ace battery powered RC airplanes, Air Hogs Stormlauncher (a vehicle that can operate on land, water, and air), Havoc Heli (a 6.5” long indoor RC helicopter weighing just 10 grams), the Reflex Helicopter (indoor/outdoor fully functional R/C helicopter), and later on The Stinger.
Other successful toy models of Air Hogs are Laser Battle Pack, SwitchBlade (a twisting blade with smaller blades that launches vertically but flies straight ahead), and Hawkeye Blue Sky (the airplane with a built-in spy camera).
