Product Description

For all of you that just can’t make your minds up whether to get a remote control plane or a remote control helicopter, your prayers have been answered! The Silverlit I/R Space Phoenix combines the two, into what we can only call a ‘planicopter’. It may look like a gimmick but the result is actually very impressive and incredibly stable in the air.

The powerful, dual main rotors enable a vertical take-off, whilst the smaller rear rotor provides the forward motion. Despite its complex appearance it is surprisingly easy to fly, which means its suitable for first time fliers as well as more frequent fliers.

The Silverlit Space Phoenix is best suited to indoor flight, but providing there isn’t much wind, it’s also good fun when flying outdoors.The body is made out of a robust, lightweight and flexible foam, so it’s not too bad at taking the occasional bump or heavy landing.

The aircraft has a built in lithium polymer battery that charges directly from the handset. After a 25 minute charge you are good to go for 10 minutes of flight time, and the different frequencies mean 3 can be flown together at the same time.

Not Worth The Money - Review by Michael

You would think this would be ideal in fact it is a pretty useless machine. Difficult to fly and also very temperamental.
Save your money buy something else.
RED5 have been great to-date and I have bought over 6 RC products over the last 2 months but this is the first truly bad piece of gear.
Suggest RED5 take it of their store as it sucks

RED5 says: "Sorry to hear that you and your Space Phoenix have fallen out :( Sounds like there might be an issue with yours as the sample unit we received to test flew like a dream! You are welcome to send it back to us so we can take a look at it for you. Just fill in the form on this page: http://www.red5.co.uk/help/returns"

no hoper - Review by steven

this was a present, i have about 10 other helicopters so my son thought i would like this. it is completely uncontrolable and is going back (bought from this site.) no amount of adjustment can recover it before it hits something.i,ve read other reviews and can say that you could buy 2 helos the same and they behave differently. this 1 is a waste of space for me.

WOW - Review by Daniel

When i walked in the shop i thought it would be £50.00 but it was onl £29.95. SICK. You can do literally anything it is the best rc toy i have got yet get one and defiy gravity

My new Favorite toy! - Review by mark

Before this arrived I was sceptical as to how well it would stand up against my beloved U4 gyro chopper, but after just a few minutes of practice, I had found a new favourite.

The space Phoenix is like something out of the Halo or Avatar world; it's elegance and grace in the air makes it hard to believe that propellors, and not anti-gravity trickery, are what's keeping it afloat.

The 3 channel control is as easy to use as its helicopter counterparts, but using the Phoenix's variable trim controls, one can actually advance into 4 channels of flight. Banking the aircraft left and right soon becomes second nature, and will leave one's friends and family in awe of it's effortless manoeuvrability.

The propellors on the Phoenix are also incredibly quiet, considering the vessel's size, which I found very impressive.

I've given it 5 stars simply because I think it has placed itself in a category of its own, but let's hope Silverlit continue to develop in this new range. Spy cam Phoenix anyone?
