NEW AND IMPROVED! NOW WITH ADVANCED 6 AXIS STABILISATION AND LED RUNNING LIGHTS!
Imagine the coolest helicopter you've ever owned crossed with a stealth jet, and you're beginning to comprehend the awesomeness of the RC Quadcopter. The fun of flying this revolutionary indoor/outdoor flying gizmo is hard to put into words. Please check out the rather rubbish quality video (above, next to more images), you'll see a Dad happily ignoring his bleating child because he's having so much fun putting this whizz through it's paces, we can't believe how fast this puppy shifts.
The RC Quadcopter has ingenious quad rotor technology with 6 axis gyro and micro computer control for self-levelling which ensures astonishingly stable flight. It's technical, but basically it can independently control the speed of the motors in relation to one another, god knows how, but it works amazingly, and is so stable you could keep a horse in it. If you've seen the video then you already know how fast this cool piece of kit can go, if you haven't, then it's VERY VERY FAST, and the Quadcopter can change direction quicker than a politician, and wields considerably more power.
We recommend that you're an intermediate to advanced helicopter flier before you get your itching fingers on one of these beasts, and don't fly it near things you don't want to concuss. The reason we say this is that it has true four channel control, so you can zoom through all dimensions, except the next one. It'll yaw, bank, pitch and elevate both inside and out, and when you've become a maestro you can even flip through 360 degrees, yes we did say that, you're not dreaming.
It has three control modes to help train you into becoming Top Gun. These levels help limit the sensitivity and power of the Quadcopter so you don't send it flying through the hedge in your initial burst of enthusiasm. Bright LED lights give the Quadcopter an awesome glow and indicate which way is forward. They also create a lovely effect when its zooming through the dark skies. A full charge will officially get you a good 10 minutes flying time (12-15 in our experience), and the battery pops out easily so you can keep a spare on charge.
So if you're flown helicopters and want to know what's next, hoping for something that's better, faster, more manoeuvrable and considerably cooler, then the RC Quadcopter is the answer to your prayers.
Please note: only charge via your computer/laptop USB ports or the mains charger provided.
