Product Description

Silverlit's latest Sky Cam helicopter can take up to three minutes of video, or loads of photos whilst flying, upon command from the remote control transmitter. Featuring a contra rotating rotor design for an extremely stable hover, combined with a sophisticated electronic heading lock gyro system for superb directional stability, and taking the clearest pictures. Download the videos and photos from the Sky Cam helicopter to a computer with the USB lead supplied, and use the complimentary graphic software provided to adjust the picture quality, for the best possible reproduction. Silverlit’s three channel infrared gyro chopper represents brilliant build quality and content, and has been beautifully designed for operation by both youngsters and adults, offering a smooth and carefully controlled performance. Stable and fun to fly indoors in a reasonable size room, the Sky Cam is remarkably robust made of impact resistant plastic, and includes a flashing red power indicator, plus a white LED spotlight that illuminates when filming. Suitable for both beginners and enthusiasts, steer the chopper by simply moving the transmitter joy stick left or right, whilst operating the throttle to take off, hover and land. The Spy Cam incorporates a powerful lithium polymer battery and will fly for up to ten minutes, whilst recharging direct from the transmitter, or any computer USB outlet in less than half an hour. The attractive Silverlit Power in Air packaging includes a fully assembled helicopter with integral camera supplied ready-to-fly, complete with a pre-installed three channel proportional wide beam infrared control system, graphic software, an informative flight manual, a USB lead and two spare tail rotors. The Sky Cam is available on bands A, B or C to allow up to three different models to be flown together. As colour and frequency varies, we are unable to guarantee which colour product or remote control band you will receive. Requires 6 x AA alkaline batteries (not included).

My 12 year old son really loves this r/c helipcoptor with camera and unlike all the others we have bought him over the last few years (and there have been many!) this one is still working one month later! They usually last 5 minutes and then break a propellor or two but this one seems quite durable despite being bashed off walls, ceilings etc. and he seems to love looking back at the videos.

This helicopter is probably the best out of so many i own for control ease of use extra gadget of a camera and also even though this has a fairly high price it is worth every penny as i have crashed it from about 10 feet in the air onto concrete and no damage at all it is durable but advised to use indoors in a large area to start after 5 minutes you will be flying around in small spaces this is absolutely top notch.

Having spent money on remote copters before I can honestly say this little chap is great for all ages an even novice Dads like me. It flies so well and is stable in flight that after 5 minutes of bouncing of walls and ceilings it flew like a dream. This product is still going strong! The added bonus is the camera and I cannot fault the "plug & play" ease with which you are able to download the images. Practice is needed to get good shots but we managed as a family to have great fun. Worth every penny and is being taken into school for a special project to fly over the assembly!

I getting this for xmas this year and after watching some reveiws on youtube it was sold.

Wanted to come here to add a couple of important factors.

1. It will record and fly for around 7-8 mins.

2. it will record at 640x480 and looks clear this includes audio.

3. Charges off your USB port and takes around 25-30 min to charge.

Hope this helps someone looking for some info on this.

Quite quick to arrive, packaged well in a large box. Very good quality helicopter, very durable and well made. Some key facts and opinions:

> Good remote-control with 2 buttons at the top on either side for taking photos/videos

> Helicopter can only be charged by lead attached to remote control (taking power from the batteries in the remote control) or by plugging into PC with the USB lead provided - there's no lead to connect to a mains socket like some other helicopters I know of

> Propellors very durable - hard plastic, not like cheaper helicopters

> Stable flight, although difficult to navigate through hallways in house as the helicopter seems to get drawn into the walls, perhaps owing to its power

> Picture quality is not that great - quite pixellated, although this might be all right for a child (coming from an adult purchaser of the product)

> Video quality is more passible than picture quality

> You can record sound, as stated in description.

Bought this as a christmas present for my son, he had so much fun with it, that i bought one as well, But for work!, great for checking out roof tiles valley gutters etc. ( You need to get a bigger one than this helicopter, but excellent fun) Good fun, good image quality, dependant how well you fly it.. Also very durable..
Its a fun unit, its not good enough for continous flight for work, but its gives you an idea of what it can achieve. Great fun in the office as well, when you need that stress break. Enjoy it..
