Performance

This toy bird is very easy to set up and start flying. Simply charge the batteries, insert one into the bird and you are ready to go. See the setup and flying instructions below.



There are two modes for flying the Zing Bird:

The following is a short video of me flying the Zing Go-Go bird.

What I like

  • Easy to fly
  • Designed to take the bumps and bruises
  • Attractive colors and fun for young kids and playful adults

What I’d change

  • Add the capability to insert 2 batteries for longer flying (There are 2 battery connections on the bird
  • Having to use a screwdriver to change the battery is not convenient

Final thoughts

This Zing Go-Go Bird is the first of this type that I have tried. It is different from a typical drone and easier to fly. It does provide my kids with lots of fun and excitement until the battery runs out. It seems that it will stand up to some abuse from the bumps and crashes and should survive my kids handling it for a while. By the way, I sometimes sneak out with it because I like to have fun with it too!! 🙂
