A few days ago we received a package in the post from ParamountZone, an excellent online source for games and gadgets. It was an indoor remote control helicopter, just in time for my birthday Check out just how tiny the helicopter really is:
To tell you the truth, I haven’t had much experience with remote control toys, but learning to fly this helicopter was a doddle. Thanks to an on-board gyroscope, the helicopter takes care of keeping itself steady and all you need to do is fly it. It says 14+ on the box, but my 6-year old son, Arthur, had no problems flying it:
From a geeky point of view, this device is a marvel of engineering, it’s so tiny, yet contains a battery, circuitry, motors and everything that’s needed to make this device fly. Here’s what it looks like on the inside:
So, what’s the verdict. Well, Arthur loves it, and so do I. It really isn’t expensive at £17.00 and promises hours of fun. We’ve only had it for a few days, and so far we’ve made time to play with it every day. They have a selection of remote control helicopters and other great gifts. Check out their video here:
