More info: Remote control helicopters are notoriously hard to pilot. But this mini indoor chopper made zooming up to the lights a breeze. Following the success of the Aero Ace (X-Twin) R/C Mini Planes comes the incredibly small Picoo Z , the smallest and lightest Micro R/C Helicopter in the World!... The Picco Z Micro Helicopter is made of tough expanded Polypropylene foam, features a blue LED strobe light, and incorporates an auto stability system to make this chopper easy to operate both indoors and outside in calm conditions.

Measuring only six inches long and weighing an mind blowing 10 grams, the virtually pocket size Picoo Z is a fascinating flying machine that is very stable and easy to fly in the smallest of spaces, and unbelievably fits in the palm of your hand! It comes assembled and ready to fly with an innovative pre-installed two channel proportional wide beam infra red control system, the lightweight Lithium Polymer onboard rechargeable battery pack drives two powerful micro motors and will provide flights of 10 minutes or more between charges, yet can be recharged in less than half an hour.

It doesn't take experience with model aircraft to fly it! You can take off, hover in one spot then direct it left or right while remaining in complete control, and landings are fully controlled and gentle. The Picco Z comes with everything needed to be flying within minutes, including an r/c transmitter, flight battery, charger and instructions.

Flying Tips:
- Turn off AC and ceiling fans. This makes it easier to control indoors.
- Wait 10 min after a flight before re-charging to let the batteries cool.
- It may take several charges to get the maximum power from the motor.
- Add noseweight as needed to get forward flight. See:
