A tiny helicopter you can easily maneuver inside the house, zipping up, down and all around! Yes, when I first saw these little machines from Discovery Store I knew my son would go crazy for one. (Actually, I wanted to fly one too!)
The Metal Frame Micro RC Helicopter from the Discovery Store is the smallest Metal-frame helicopter on the market. It features a built-in gyroscope which makes it easy to control. (Well – I have no idea what a gyroscope is! But, the company says that makes it easy to control. So I guess that is what a gyroscope can do for a pint-sized helicopter!)
Fortunately the helicopter is rechargeable and features a lithium-polymer battery which takes 30-40 minutes to charge. It charges through its radio control unit and flies for about 8-12 minutes between charges. It isn’t a long play time between charges. But hey — we are flying helicopters in the house! Very cool. So I guess I can’t complain that the charge doesn’t last long enough!
The Metal Frame Micro RC Helicopter is manufactured by hand with a durable metal frame. (I suppose it isn’t very “boyish” to say that it is cute — but it so is!!!) I don’t imagine it will last for too many months with my kids — but for the intended age range of 12 years and older, I am sure it will be quite durable.
