Product Description

We’ve done our best over the years, trying to find tiny cameras that you can attach to helicopters but there’s always been something that’s not quite right….. Enter the Spy Cam helicopter from Silverlit. This gyro-enabled helicopter has a 1.3 megapixel camera built in so you can film your epic flight or even take sneaky pictures of your friends as you fly over their heads!

It’s easy to fly and gives super stable flight due to the gyroscope inside. This means that even though your piloting skills might not be top-notch, your pictures will be! The camera is even adjustable so you can be sure you’re getting the best angle for that incriminating shot. Trigger buttons on the remote control handset allow ease of use and mean that you can still concentrate on avoiding mum’s prize ornaments whilst becoming the next David Bailey!

There’s PC software included so you can adjust the photo and video settings (such as photo quality and brightness). You can even add effects like sepia and shoot in artsy black and white! Once your masterpiece has been created why not upload your pictures or video automatically to Facebook or Twitter by syncing your accounts? ‘Live view’ will also enable you to use the helicopter like a webcam when plugged in!

All in all, this is one impressive and easy to fly helicopter packed full of excellent features. What better way to annoy your work colleagues than filming them getting cross with you?

Great Gift - Review by Andy

This is a great toy!!!! Do have one issue tho, i have broken the blade and wonder if there are replacements?

RED5 says: "Only the top set of blades are replaceable on this particular model. If you need some then just drop us an email :)"

Good Timepass - Review by sreepathy

The first thing about these toys is that they thrill you sometime and later sit in your shelf. They only come out whenever u need to take a break from a hectic schedule.
I bought this one around october last year. It is thrilling to learn to fly in the begining. You make a lot of crashes at first. Given that most of the parts are made of plastic, this one has never crashed after so many falls - full 5 marks on that aspect.
Everthing else has been good so far..the charging, flying etc.,
However It is a little slow to respond to the remote. Otherwise it makes a perfect time pass toy.



RED5 says: "All our products come with a year's guarantee against mechanical faults and defects. Please note that this doesn't cover crash damage, but we'll always try and help repair where possible. All you need to do is take it into a store or email customer services with your issue."

Help!!! - Review by donna


I purchased one of these for christmas present, please can you advise where i can get a replacement main blade for it, it broke christmas day so have a very unhappy person :O(

Many thanks


RED5 says: "Hi Donna, if you email customer services we'll see what we can do for you. On this helicopter we can only repair the top set of blades as the bottom set aren't replaceable."

YL - Review by Yvonne

It looks good, but it never worked. It told me to set the channel on the helicopter but never showed/told me how to do it. Not Can't say if it is fun to fly 'cos it hasn't done anything. I was told it was simple to work!

RED5 says: "On the box it will say whether the helicopter is either channel A, B or C. All you need to do is make sure that the channel selector on the remote control matches this and away you go!"

question - Review by help me

can you tell me whether i can fly this outside

RED5 says: "Sadly not with this one - it's only infra-red control which doesn't have a huge range and it's just too light to battle even the slightest wind."

RED5 says: "Hi there Aziz, if you are still having problems, please get in contact with customer services and they'll have some suggestions."

I feel like a mini James Bond - Review by Tim

Oh my, this is just brilliant. It's great to fly, and the interface for viewing movies is just so easy to use. Well done RED5 and Silverlit. Amazed that they've crammed so much into such a compact chopper. Fly ordinary ones now is just so yesterday! I Love it.
