Play.com's deal of the day is a brilliant remote control gyro helicopter that has been reduced from £39.99 to only £14.99.
As this has gyros it will be very easy to fly and for that price makes a brilliant Xmas present. It has 57 reviews and most of them are 5 stars.

Previously been on sale for £17.99

I want one, can't pay until tomorrow though. Think they will go out of stock?

I've got one of these and they are really good fun, so easy to control and much better than the cheap or earlier silverlit ones from a few years back.

Just ordered through Quidco, thanks

Great deal bought one when they were 17.99 sometime ago. Flies really well and scares the **** out of the cat

Good deal for the money, but very addictive

I cant resist at £14.99!

I bought this on Friday from them at £19.57. Needing it next day I paid for express service at £4.99....... and guess what it did not come. Now its Sunday and I have no Apache for my nephew.

Still a bad ass helicopter and hot.

very rare you get this for less than £24.99, one xmas prezzy found , hot here

Voted hot

Excellent deal, cheers

The quidco ELEVENDOTD code for 11% off doesn't seem to work!?

I bought one for £50 from Hamleys but there was no usb charger in the pack also the back blade kept breaking and the spares supplied would just fly off.
Happy to say I recieved a full refund from them.
That code ran out on the 11-11-11

Any chance Amazon will match price?

Would this be suitable for an 8 year old?

ordered 2 for xmas presents, thanks

Bargain! Cheers OP.

My third deal from Play in as many days!

ONE EACH FOR MY BOYS x thanks

I noticed that too, any reason?

Bought two, thanks.

because it was a special for one day i.e. DOTD 'Deal Of The Day'

It was never worth £39.99 though. You can get a T-34 for that which is about 10x the size can be used indoor and outdoors, has a full LCD remote control. Greater range, full support of spares if broken, suitable for nightflights due to built in lighting and probably a few other benefits I haven't thought of. You can even mount one of those keychain camcorders (£4 from ebay) and film your flights.

That makes no sense. On the quidco site it says expires today, when you click the link there's a massive banner saying 11% off gadgets and this helicopter is the first item on the page.

Superb little helicopter!!
My 8 year old lad picked up the controls in approx. 2 mins...
Have ordered another at this price as a spare...

Heat added.

That looks amazing

Bought one

sancho, clearly a mistake from quidco. The 11% was only for one day and the quidco link brings u to an out of date page. The deal was for Friday I think.

click on the 11% banner then it goes back to the normal page.

Looks great - I've bought one for my nephew. Another Christmas present sorted, thanks OP.

Nice. Not sure how long it'll last though! Those picoz's seem to fair better as they're so light. Bought anyway

Ordered looks like there is a lot of fun to play with it
thanks op

Ordered. Thanks

Ordered. Thanks

Thanks!

I ordered one of these last year and it was great. My nephew said he would like one for Christmas so I ordered him one as well. On Christmas morning he was trying to fly it but said 'the controllers not working the way yours does' and when I checked it the left control stick (for going up and down) didn't have the same springy feel that mine did (springs back into position when you let go) and it made it a lot more difficult to fly. I gave him the controller of mine thinking that it would just be a matter of getting a replacement for myself from Play after Christmas.
They did replace it but the replacement was exactly the same. Got a refund after that.
A few months later they had them on offer again so ordered another thinking that the last lot were just from a faulty batch. This one was the same so got a refund again.
They had them on offer again around July/August so thought I'd try again. The new one was the same again but I kept it this time.

They are a lot harder to fly than the older ones but still fun. Don't know if it's a faulty batch or if the design has been changed a bit

Probably the reason why they're getting rid of them for £14.99 though as anyone who hasn't had one before wouldn't know the difference

Didn't this get posted 5 days ago here for only £2 more hotukdeals.com/dea…946

And it only generated 23 degrees heat. Can't believe £2 makes such a difference!! Is it really that good a deal?
