The technology in remote control helicopters has improved vastly over the past few years and it doesn’t seem to be stopping. Techies out there will understand the great improvement that comes with moving away from Infrared and onto a broader bandwidth. Not only do your helicopter signals not get interrupted but you also get a larger range and can fly more helicopters at once – and this is exactly what the U8-S offers.
The U8-S helicopter is a three channel indoor helicopter which means you get three planes of movement, up and down, left and right, and forward and back. These slick helicopters have a hard robust shell to protect all the gears and motors so they can withstand overconfident flying and coming into contact with the kitchen table a few times. As they are 3 channel copters, they are easy to fly and great for beginners. The U8-S is like one of our other indoor helicopters, the U4. Both are incredibly easy to fly only this one is a little bit bigger than its predecessor.
With most copters you have to get one of each colour so they are on different frequencies and can be flown together. Whereas since these come on a 2.4Ghz band they can be flown with multiple helicopters at one time. Charging your new helicopter is easy peasy via the USB cable provided, you can even purchase a USB mains plug charger from our spares department.
Please note: only charge via your computer/laptop USB ports or with the mains charger available.
