Every young boy wants to learn to fly; the Firebird Commander 2 shows them the way. The radio-controlled plane’s Anti-Crash Technology monitors the plane’s flight and sends corrections to the receiver so kids can avoid taking a dangerous dive. When they've mastered the Commander, the Anti-Crash Technology can be turned off so kids can expand their skills. It's a perfect family-together time gift.
Karey Koehn, editor of HobbyTown USA's Hobby Outlook Magazine, believes, “This is really a parent/child gift — but one that will be the hit of the holiday season.”
— “The Commander 2 has been selling very well for us; in fact, it has been our top seller since it was released. I believe with the quality of the product and the low price, this plane is going to do excellent this Christmas,” pointed out Mitchell Kern, store manager of Boondoggles in Victoria, Texas.
— The Commander 2 sells well even as far away as Mr. Gadget in Australia (where it is sold out).
