Star Wars Millennium Falcon Remote Control by HASBRO INC.
Star Wars Millennium Falcon Remote Control by HASBRO INC.

Star Wars fans are likely to have this remote controlled Millennium Falcon on the top of their wish list.  It is very lightweight and takes a certain amount of practice to get it to fly well. It's not the type of toy that you can hand off to your 8 year old and they will be good to go right from the start.  That said, tween and teen testers really liked adjusting the trim and working on their own ability to work the remote control.
