I've had this one. A great little helicopter once you have fined tuned it :)

:thumbsup:

Nearest store is over 30 miles away, so hardly just 'down the road'.

Never mind... I will just have to make do with my little Palm Z plane from Play.com... if it ever arrives that is!

52 miles, my nearest store.

I have a friend who runs a online biz and high street store he told me he got the cheap versions of the picoz the copies that everywhere online seems to have he gave me one bit of advice, dont buy them or if you do dont charge for more than 2 mins, they have no internal recharge circuit cutoff so the battery overheats melting the foam and turning it into a fireball :( video was shown couldnt believe it fireball in mid air.

Never had any trouble with mine.

BTW I believe this heli is more stable than the picoz

This one is not like the pico-z . The pico-z is a piece of polystyrene foam , so it acts as insulation around the battery. This causes the heat problem. There are other copies of the pico-z built the same , but this is not one of them.

The type of helicopter posted has a plastic shell. There is plenty of air around the battery, so no chance of overheating problems. I had one from deal extreme, it only lasted one day though ( i crashed it and broke the linkage to the balancing arm above the rotor blade). It was weakened because it arived bent in the first place though.
They are great fun though.

This is exactly the same as the WASP helicopter I got off PLAY wanted to make order to £50 to get £5 off so got 1 of these not had much chance to fly it but I aint to good at it.

The only problem I find is I cannot get the charging plug to clip in still charges but I have to not move it once charging.
#10
I have got one of these but I wouldn't rec'mend for young kid as my boy is 8 and can not fly it - then again I have problems!:oops:
Good for a laugh but make sure you have the super glue ready to help put the balance bits back on when they fall off.

Santa brought one of these H&B helicopters for my son and it lasted about 2 hours before the tail motor packed in. Now it's useless and not such a bargain afterall!

I have one of these too - from Home Bargains and had great fun with it on xmas day in the lounge.

Haven't managed to fine tune it properly yet but crashed it loads of times and it did not break (yet!)

I would guess it alo has a charging cut off as it has a green LED while charging that goes off when fully charged (20-30mins) and this gives 5 mins or so of flying time.

An impressive amount of fun for £10! And more fun than the roboreptile thing that should have been £80!

Bought my 6 yo lad a simliar thing, off a market stall. It has foam body, and looks to have a cut off, as an LED is lit when charging, which goes off, after a while ( as mention above). It is damn difficult to control, even for me. We have crashed it loads of times, and it hasn't broke yet ...
I think we paid £20 for it, so this is a bargain at £10.
#16
uncle had one yesterday when we went round, they are great fun, it broke after 10minutes though.... think we crashed it to much.
banned#17
Crashed mine hundreds of times still going strong well it seems to have destablised now though, these aren't worth more than £5.00 great money spinner for the companies involved though and great fun too, if only they made the tail rotor a bit stronger.
#18
There was a documentary on these remote helicopters on French TV last week and it was found that these ones don't comply to the EU health and safety regulations. There is a part which isn't soldered in these models that prevent them to burn and melt.
The tests showed that the Pico Z models (on which these models were copied on) were safe.
#19
well i started with the original picoz last year i got it for xmas and cost it around £30 at the timem the propeller weight fell off while flying upside down, found best way to fly them is by putting a drawing pin on the nose of the copter, its brilliant to fly about then, ive had a couple bigger copters since smashed one seriously as annoyin the hell out of the neighbours with my new one thats about half a meter long and powerful lol.
#20
took mine back cus the main roter broke, also it was hard to fly...harder then my Pico Z one which is still going strong after many crashes and with a vibrating rotor..lol
#21
