Geez! Have you seen the size of this little helicopter? It measures only about 6.5 inches in length and the all up flying weight is about 10 grams!
I would love to have purchased one of this if I don’t already have an electric chopper that does the works! Anyway this little toy is cool. Why? Coz u can fly it in confimed spaces without having the fear of breaking anything! I heard that this little thing can take whacks after whacks. That might be true but I do wonder how long the motors will be able to last? The last few choppers I had with brushed motors, they seem to burn out after a short period. If only they have brushless motors in these little buggers!
Anyway here are some specs and details on the Piccoz Heli by Silverlit. I wonder if that is the only brand out there. Anyway I heard they sell these things at Toys’R’Us but I personally saw it at this gadget shop at 1-Utama LG floor for about RM149.00 or so. Well its cheap for a flying chopper but all you get is 2 channels for left / right yaw and up / down motion. Hey what do you expect for something this cheap! I’d purchase it any day but unfortunately I’ve gotta save up for a TREX SE.
