Metal Frame Micro RC Helicopter from Discovery Store Giveaway

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!)

Metal Frame Micro RC Helicopter

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.

The DiscoveryStore.com has so many fabulous and unique toys and games. It is the perfect place to check out if you are trying to come up with an enriching and fun gift!

    I recently found out my son has medullablastoma which is a form of brain cancer…A mini helicopter would definitely be wonderful and a big help..

    It told me I already left a comment saying I liked you on facebook but I don’t see the comment on your page only the 3 other ones I left. So if it shows up later I don’t know what happened.

    We saw one of these at a friend’s house almost exactly a year ago… and just this morning my son told me he wanted one. I have no intentions of buying one, but it would be so lovely to surprise him with this!

    My MIL bought one of these one year and my kids were totally enthralled with it. The quality on hers was terrible though and didn’t last very long. This one sounds better. 😀

    I got my son one of these for Christmas he loved it! Unfortunetly my little ones were also loving them and managed to distroy them. I told my son i would get him another one when the babies are a little older they are 4 now and it would be a great gift for him

    I subscribe to your feed. When I check it through my iPod I don’t leave as many comments. If I get the iPad I’m dreaming of I’ll leave more comments on the go.

    For his birthday, Bebe Boy James received a remote helicopter, and he loved it! BUT, Grandbebe JoJo also loved it, and since he was only 4, well, once he got hold of it, it was a goner! I think this one would last long enough for us to get it away from him in time! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Can it lift a camera?? :) I’ve always wanted a RC helicopter myself but only because I think that taking pictures and videos from the air would be cool…

  13. says

    We’ve seen these flying around at the mall and they never fail to stop my husband and daughter in their tracks, it would be a tossup over who Santa would give it to!

    Is this what was on Mythbusters yesterday? They were so cool! I want one. For my son. Yeah, for my son. Not for me.
