This RC Drone blaster appears to be quite a fun blaster to use and I really like the fact that you are able to see live footage of the blaster’s perspective. Unfortunately the Terrascout is a whopping $200 and I’d hate to see how much it is in Australia and New Zealand.
At least the Terrascout looks much more hopeful than the Terradrone (Nerf’s last drone blaster).
