Mini Helicopters

Mini helicopters are taking the world by storm this year and spent a long time testing every single one (its a tough job) to bring you a selection of the best.

PicoZ Micro Helicopter PicoZ Micro Helicopter
Small chopper, big fun
Swoop by superiors, hover past heads of department and touch down on the boss's bald patch with this astonishingly tiny infra-red chopper. Controlled via a nifty transmitter that doubles up as a charger, the ready-to-fly PicoZ is virtually crash resistant and ideal for indoor flights.

Have you got the bug?
If you thought chucking paper planes around the office was entertaining, wait till you see this bug-like chopper in action. The world's smallest fully-functional RC 'copter is a triumph of aeronautical design, and it's so incredibly manoeuvrable you'll be performing desktop fly-bys before you can say "Noel Edmonds".

Storm Launcher Storm Launcher
Kick up a storm on any surface
You won't believe your eyes when you see this revolutionary RC vehicle in action. Not because it rockets across any surface - including water, concrete, sand and grass - but because it can actually take off and fly through the air!

Walkera 5-6 Genius Chopper Walkera 5-6 Genius Chopper
Proper precision chopper
Piloting a real helicopter requires skill, dexterity and a big pair of headphones. But thanks to this brilliant 4-channel RC chopper you can bin the cans and concentrate on the flying part. Perfect for PicoZ/Mosquito fans looking to step up to the next level. The only way is up. And down. And forwards and backwards and…

Screaming Flying Monkey Screaming Flying Monkey
How to lose friends and alienate people
Bored of life? Simply pull back this gangly, superhero-style monkey's arms and watch as he catapults through the air, screeching like a loon. Monkey business? More like monkey lunacy!

X-Twin Bi-Plane X-Twin Bi-Plane
Flying lessons? Nah!
Crack out your goggles and take to the skies with this supremely manoeuvrable little RC plane. Ultra lightweight, the rechargeable X-Twin can even be flown indoors. Open skies? Who needs 'em!

Pterosaur Pterosaur
Everyone fly the dinosaur
Look out! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Actually it's a flying dinosaur that you control via remote control. Pterosaur flaps its wings in a highly realistic (we imagine) fashion and is incredibly manoeuvrable, outdoors. (Doug McClure sold separately).

Moller Skycar M400 Moller Skycar M400
Roads are sooo last year...
Why travel in 2D when you can travel in three dimensions? The Skycar will put an end to road rage. Stuck behind slow-moving traffic? Then take to the air, my man.

Palm Z Micro Plane Palm Z Micro Plane
It's an inside job!
Fly through the air with the greatest of ease without getting off the sofa with this incredible miniature RC plane. Specifically designed for indoor use, the ultra-light, rechargeable Palm Z is amazingly manoeuverable and its tri-band system allows three planes to fly simultaneously.
