The Apache helicopter is by far the most awesome of all helicopters and that’s why we couldn’t wait to get our hands on this little beauty. However ‘little’ it certainly isn’t! The S023G Gyro Gunship measures in at a whopping 40cm and dwarfs every other helicopter that we’ve done so far.
Phenomenally detailed, the Syma S023G looks amazing as it flies through the air. It’s equipped with two side-mounted, white LED’s and flashing amber and red lights underneath. It looks menacing as it flies and even the whirl of the blades sounds that little bit more intimidating! As most RC heli enthusiasts will tell you, control is everything. Thankfully it passes the RED5 handling tests thanks to its 3 channel control and built in advanced gyro. With something so big we were sceptical at first but it certainly performs as good as any other gyro helicopter we’ve had our hands on (trust us, that’s a lot!).
Due to its size the S023G packs not one, but two Li-Poly batteries. It charges in about 60 minutes and you get around 7 minutes of continuous flight. This helicopter is suitable for intermediate fliers and possibly adventurous beginners - just make sure you’ve got enough room to take off!
