This Gyro Flyer Remote Control Helicopter or "Gyrocopter" comes "Ready to Fly" and has 3 channel precision control.
Made from metal construction, it comes with Gyro technology for extra stability. So what is the Gyro and how does it make a difference? The Gyro is a small device fitted to the helicopter that detects any yaw (left or right swinging) movement of the helicopter and automatically sends a command to the tail rotor to correct and stop/limit the yaw movement. In other words, it provides greater stability than those helicopters not fitted with the Gyro.
Three channels also allow the helicopter to be flown in all directions - forwards, backwards, left and right! The Gyroscope is extremely easy to fly and is ideal for the novice flyer. Charging only takes 30 to 40 minutes via the radio transmitter with a flight time of approximately 5 minutes. With a flight range of 8 metres, it can be flown indoors and outdoors in relatively calm conditions.
What's in the Box
Requires 6 x AA batteries for the radio transmitter (not included)
Suitable for Ages 14+
I recently purchased this helicopter from menkind for my husband and he couldnt be happier! He charged it and played with it and it actually lasted about 14 minutes (including the crash times!) Well worth the money, Its so much fun for all ages, and I can;t bleieve I've waited this long to actually buy it! AMAZING

This is basically a Syma S107G and for the money is awesome! My son has a full blown 4 Channel RC helicopter but this little beauty is so easy to control it dances around its more expensive and higher tech stablemate thoroughly recommended well worth the money and absolutely awesome!

I have had lots of R.C. helicopters but this is the best I have had so far. It rotates so well and it is very life like. It is the most brilliantly fantastic helicopter I have purchased. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a sturdy robust R.C. helicopter!

Got this for my husband and he loves it. It's very cool, takes a bit of getting used to but it's excellent and he enjoys flying it in the garden. It's smaller than I thought but pretty robust. I don't know much more about it, because he doesn't let me play with it!!!! I would recommend it, definitely :)

This little helecopter is so much fun! i bought it for myself as i have tryed out outer two channel helecopters, this Helecopter was however in a different league, it is simple to understand and unlike other conventional helecopters this ones unique propeller system stops it from spinning in circiles as it takes of. I have already ordered another for my cousins birthday.

If you're looking for ultimate RC fun, this could be the perfect choice. Simple to fly, you can perform perfect hovering and swooping due to the integrated gyro system.
Build quality is where this helicopter differs from every other brand at this price, metal casing and cast plastic body mean that your flying machine can withstand substantial crash landings with ease.
Should you be unlucky enough to cause damage, replacement parts are available as M:Tech have one of the most user serviceable copters around. Don't be fooled by imitations, this is the real deal.

My husband treated himself to one of these for his birthday as we knew somebody that had one already. Is excellent fun and so easy to fly. I had managed with very little practice to land it on somebodies outstretched hand.
I previously had one of the original polystyrene ones, and too update to this was excellent. Also flies for a good amount of time on one charge and holds charge well as we hadn't used it for a week and still flew well for several minutes. Excellent fun!

Having tried several other brand 2 Channel helicopters to entertain both the kids and myself I found out that what we really needed was a 3 Channel machine for greater controllability.
After a fair bit of research and hands-on testing in-store I quickly came to the conclusion that this 3 Channel helicopter with gyro (essential for stability & control) was out and out the best and most reasonably priced to be found. And to compound my decision further it also came with free delivery for the two that I ordered.
To put it into some perspective, Hamleys are selling a similar 3 Channel with gyro unit, but at £70 each or 2 for £120 it was a total no-brainer that this was a real bargain.
The helicopter comes in three different channels, so if you are getting more than one for your kids you'll need to make sure you get two different channels to eliminate interference.
Set-up is virtually non-existent. Simply insert the batteries to your controller, select the correct channel then press the UP lever. Remember to trim clockwise or anticlockwise to stop the rotation of the fuselage in the hover, and then enjoy a very manoeuvrable little helicopter that actually gets up a fair bit of speed and is so much fun. I can guarantee that the kids will need to prize the controller from you to get their turn.
My advice for anyone in a similar position to mine, my advice is quite simple. Buy it here and benefit from getting a fantastic performing helicopter with free and fast delivery at an unbeatable price. Very highly recommended.

A brilliant helicopter for indoor fun! One charge lasts plenty of time! Much more than I ever would have expected, charging takes a considerable amount of time, however is more than worth the wait. The precision of the helicopter far surpassed my expectations, it goes where you want it to, when you want it to! I have no faults to report, it is very robust and can take more than a knock and a fall. The inclusion of a USB charger makes controller battery life excellent, meaning the need for battery replacement is much less!

It’s a really good little helicopter very responsive controls and great fun around the house. Very impressed!!! Also it flashes!!!!!! The USB charger is great so as to not waste batteries also good battery life :) fun to take off and land on random objects. It’s also fast! I might try it outside on a non windy day. Also feels really sturdy and it entertains my dog :D

This has to be the best helicopter on the market. We have had 4 or 5 remote copters in our house over the last couple of years, but the Tech Gyro Flyer surpasses them all by miles. It is amazingly stable, it turns in the direction you want it to, it hovers without spinning, and you can land it where you want. Incredible!
Great product, great price!
