Silverlit, the brand known for its tiny radio controlled Picoo Z indoor helicopter, brings you the Tandem Z -- a remote control helicopter with twin rotors just like a real Chinook. Stabilised by a sophisticated gyroscopic stability system, with proportional throttle for precise control, the Tandem Z represents an outstanding technological achievement for a model this small.
The helicopter has wide infrared control, a built-in Li-Poly battery, trim control and rigid foam body. It also has a unique roto-blade system for steady take off and, unlike the original Picoo Z, it's a three-channel helicopter (forwards and backwards, left and right, up and down). A normal charge of 20-25 minutes should give you a flight time of around 10 minutes, and charging is done directly from the remote control (which requires 6xAA batteries).

looks good, but can the remote control be charged? or does it eat batteries like nothing else?

I have flown this helicopter for a while. The remote itself cannot be charged. It uses normal AA batteries but these may be recharge-ables (so you will have to take them out to recharge them). It doesn't seem to use up batteries any faster than the picoo z helicopters.

The helicopter itself is quite unstable and hard to fly in my opinion. It has clear plastic pieces attached to the front and rear of it (which I at first assumed to be packing material - see picture below), but Silverlit recommend that novice flyer's keep these attached to help it remain stable. This ruins the overall look of the helicopter. It is hard to fly without these attached. The landing wheels are also quite weak.

This is a good price for the tandem-z but there are many more at this price that perform better.

Russ, would you care to recommend any decent RC helicopters that are good to fly, especially for novice users?

I'm getting confused by all the different but similar options. All I want is something which will go up/down; go forward when I tell it to; turn l/r when I tell it to and which my 7 year old can play with (since it's his christmas present) without him either getting so frustrated he gives up, or flying it into a wall and snapping immediately.

Please help.

If you are looking for one, as you said, that will go up/down, left/right, and forwards, then it must be a 3-channel helicopter (2-channel ones cannot really go forwards).

I would recommend the Hobby Storm IV as it is strong, has a beginner mode, and also comes with main and tail replacement rotor blades. Play.com did have it quite cheap but it is out of stock. You should be able to find it in stock elsewhere if you are willing to pay a bit more...

This is easy to fly. It's the most stable thing you'll find for the price.

Great price, bought a couple myself a while ago.

Voted HOT!

It depends how much you spend, the easiest helicopter i have ever flown is the Lama V3 from dealextreme, (about £60) but it is a 4 channel, easy to fly and keep in a hover and lots of spare parts and upgrades available
#8
These are fairly easy to fly, once trimmed properly. Much more stable than the single blade helicopters. Hovers around my living room annoying the cats brilliantly.:p
At this price, a steal too........be quick ...one left in stock!
Batteries last a fair time. Rechargeables work okay too, but reduce the flying time by about 20%.
#9
Great Deal! I've got one too and it's one of my best buys this year.

Setting up to fly stable is a bit of a pain, but with a bit of practice you'll be landing the helicopter on peoples heads in no time :)

Outside flying is interesting too
#10
Great price, hovering one of these in front of youre nose is wicked LOL
once you have it trimmed i think its pretty good really
