Music Plays.

Two cylindrical Ollie Robots drive across screen followed closely by two boys on skateboards

The two boys stop in front of a blank wall and survey it and their surroundings.

The boys begin to assemble discarded items around them such as tires and cement blocks.

The boys behind to paint the blank wall with bright colored lettering

The boys step back to overlook their newly built obstacle and race course — the word “Ollie” is now painted on the wall.

Music grows faster.

One boy presses on a virtual joystick on an iPod touch and the Ollie speeds off the start line.

The Ollies drive around a steep turn and wheelie onto one tire as they maintain control.

One Ollie gets a long runway and hits a ramp, causing it to jump and roll across the top of the tire and roll gracefully down a wooden ramp at the other side.

The Ollies take turns hitting ramps and jumping over two wooden crates.

The Ollies now jump through the center of the tire.

The Ollies race over a wave shaped piece of concrete— they are neck and neck.

Ollie hits a ramp and jumps onto a painted construction drum. It taps the top, then drives off the opposite end and drops down to a wooden ramp on which it drives away.

The other Ollie attempts the same jump, but misses the drum landing on the concrete to the side and continuing to drive away. The driver of that Ollie shakes his head.

One boy swipes across the virtual trick pad on his iPod touch, and Ollie spins around quickly. The other Ollie does the same.

Ollie drives quickly towards the wall and hits a quarter pipe which sends the robot up the wall into the air, and then back down the same way.

The boys are intently driving the Ollies, using their iPod touches like video game controllers.

The Ollies jump off a 2x4 piece of lumber and hurdle over some concrete pillars..

The boys focus as the Ollies cross over the finish line at incredible speed. The winner celebrates the victory.

An Ollie package is shown, and the winning Ollie drives up next to it.

Or spin, drift, stall and flip Ollie with app-powered tricks. You can even give it your own style with custom tires and hubcaps.

    Engineered for speed

    Leave your competition in the dust while maintaining complete control. Ollie is impressively agile thanks to its fine-tuned mechanics and tubular design.

      Awesome!

      Ollie is so freakin cool. I wish I could explain how fun it is to drive this thing. So fast and unlike anything I've ever played with really. I love how you can Ollie is so freakin cool. I wish I could explain how fun it is to drive this thing. So fast and unlike anything I've ever played with really. I love how you can make it spin like a top at like 80 miles an hour. The lights inside look really cool when you drive it around in the dark too. Definitely buying some more as Xmas gifts this year.

      Fast & VERY tough.

      Fast! This thing is really quick in a small space. It definitely took a little time to get the hang of it but turning down the speed definitely helped and once Fast! This thing is really quick in a small space. It definitely took a little time to get the hang of it but turning down the speed definitely helped and once I had that down it was fun to see how nimble I could be. I really really enjoyed how you can make it drift with the tires off and changing the settings. I wasn't quite sure I bought how tough this thing was but I definitely gave it a run for it's money outside and this thing is solid. The bumping and tumbling are actually really fun, this thing can never be upside down which is pretty neat! It does need to be re-aimed a bit if you tumble or do a lot of tricks but that is pretty easy to do.

      Does not work with 4s or iPad mini

      My 10 year old grandson tried it and it is to confusing. Not for a child. Returning it and very disappointed!

      Great Fun

      I've had this for 1 month and a half now and I love it. I'm not sure if it's worth the £80 but it's worth paying £10 more than other places for the awesome flux I've had this for 1 month and a half now and I love it. I'm not sure if it's worth the £80 but it's worth paying £10 more than other places for the awesome flux hubs and neon green ultra tyres. It is better if you have a large wooden or tiled area in your house especially for drifts as they are really fun. It's not great on carpet even on full speed but works without the tyres on on carpet. Outside it works well on tarmac and concrete with the tyres on but I wouldn't recommend taking off the tyres outside as the plastic drift wheels will get scuffed up. It's great on my local concrete skatepark as its a big open space with a bowl so it's awseome on there. I have been using the programming app called Macrolab which is a fun addition. Charge is great as I use a 10w IPad air 2 plug to charge it and it takes about an hour to charge for an hours play time which is amazing. It's super durable it's not like most remote control helicopters that brake after 2 minutes! I'd rate 4 1/2 stars as its a tad pricey and can get a tad boring but overall really fun toy.
