This palm size 4 channel helicopter is amazing! This tiny heli is able to move in 6 directions, including spinning on its own axis, just like the real thing!
The light but strong metal body frame protects the helicopter from those inevitable crashes, though not indestructible it won't break easily. The blades too are made of a flexible plastic and so are much more able to survive any collisions.
Though it has 4 channels and is highly manoeuvrable, it's co-axial twin rotor design makes it very easy to fly and even a complete novice should be able to control it perfectly after about half an hour.
Another great feature is that you can choose from one of three frequencies so you and your friends can fly up to three of these at the same time!
It charges via the transmitter or alternatively by plugging it into the USB slot on your Mac or PC, which should mean you can charge it up pretty much anywhere. This is a brilliant model and a fantastic introduction to RC helicopters. Suitable from the age of about 8 upwards to 108!
It comes in either the blue or red variety depending on stock.
