Next up in the christmas gift ideas articles, we have the super cool Mini RC helicopter! These little flying toys can be found in pretty much all gadget shops around the country, so shop around to find the best deals this xmas. The toy itself is a miniture helicopter replica which is controlled via remote and will fly like the real thing!
Although the helicopter can be quite fragile, it flies quite convincingly the controls take a little while to master, so practice on a field or somewhere with soft ground at first. Although this would probably be recommended for a boys christmas present, this would be an equally good present for a girl too.
The Super Micro Helicopter is made of an expanded Polypropylene foam, a features a bright blue LED strobe light allowing for flights in the dark (although i wouldnt recommend this!), and incorporates an auto stability system to make for smoother flights in windy and calm weather alike.
