If you spent any time around the malls this holiday season you probably noticed a guy standing out in front of Brookstone flying around one of these little micro helicopters and if your like me you probably silently thought to yourself that it looked pretty cool and kept walking by.
It turns out that it was a good thing I did because I wound up getting one as a jokingly fun kind of gift Christmas morning and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. On Christmas day my family got together and thousands of dollars worth of presents changed hands and none got more play and laughs then this little under $30 gadget.
I am almost embarrassed to admit that at the age of 30 that this toy captured my attention for 15 minutes blocks of air time all day long. Buzzing this little heli around the house with people ducking for cover provided hours of mindless entertainment.
The is something amazing about the technology that allows a tiny remote controlled helicopter to actually fly around for under $30. Granted it is not blazingly fast nor does it allow you to fly around for more then 15 minutes at a time but it is still simply awesome.
The package comes with a helicopter, remote, and mini toolkit with all the parts you need to fix your rotors after you smash it into the wall… and you will. Do yourself a favor and pick one of these gadgets up for yourself, or your kid (if your too embarrassed to pick one up for yourself) the next chance you get, you won’t be disappointed.
