    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun! 8 Jun 2007
    Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    It's a great toy and alot of fun for the price. The controls allow you to alter the speed of the main rotor to alter the lift, also the speed of the tail rotor to turn the helicopter. With judicious application of the stick on weights you can balance the model so that it drifts forward when in stable flight. It takes a bit of practice to get this thing to go in roughly the direction you want it too but that is half the fun.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun 22 Jun 2007

    This remote controlled helicopter is fantastic fun. I got one for my birthday and have been playing with it since. My dad has a go everytime he pops over, so I guess I would say 'fun for all ages'. Takes a while to get used to the controls, but once you do it is really good. Good value for money and despite having crashed it numerous times it is still going and working well.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive toy!! 1 July 2007
    By Mike S
    Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    My nephew bought me this as a Christmas gift & I haven't stopped playing with it since! I found that it required a little more nose weight to give it forward momentum (Blue Tack sorted that out)but once I had added the extra nose weight it flew beautifully. As a former pilot I can tell you it's flight characteristics are quite realistic & once you get the hang of the slight delay from the infra red transmitter the helicopter is very controllable. It is an indoor toy only as the infra red transmitter requires walls to bounce the 'beam' to the helicopter & as it's made from styrofoam any light breeze would blow it away. Initially I broke a couple of tail rotors on our laminate floor but these are available in packs of 3 from Firebox.com quite cheaply - since then I've taken to flying it in carpeted areas of the house! Buy one, you certainly won't be disappointed!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fun but more fragile than you might think. 2 Sep 2007
    By Collins
    Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    This is more of a toy for 14+ than little kids - it's difficult to learn to fly, but you do learn a bit about the physics of helicopters in doing so, so I suppose it's not so bad to have a learning curve.

    It's definitely very fun. Whizzing it round the house, teasing the cat and seeing where I could land it (On top of the TV - 3 points, On the lampshade - 10 points, Out of the window and on top of the gazebo - 25 points etc...)!

    A couple of things I would like to alert possible buyers are:

    1) The tail rotors - You only get 2 (one on the chopper and a second spare). The fitting for the tail rotors can get worn out, causing the helicopter to spin uncontrolably. If this occurs, you will need to move on to the spare. The tail rotors are also very fragile, and will crack if you whack the helicopter into a wall, hit a venetian blind or tangle it up amongst wires.

    2) Don't do what my mate did and try to make it take off from your head. You WILL get your hair tangled and cry like a baby.

    3) The helicopter moves with a surprising amount of force. Avoid hitting anything delicate. Also watch out for bits of paper that might be lying about, as they can get blown away.

    I paid 30 for my Picoo, and I still think it was worth that much. Buy it and enjoy it - just be careful!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 13 Oct 2007
    Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Have just bought this toy for my 9 year old son but everyone in the family loves it! We've only used it indoors so far & I suspect it would not be very durable & easily lost outdoors unless in a large grassy area without trees/concrete. The battery lasts abot 10-15mins, which is hardly surprising in view of the high power consumption. With some skill, one can make it move forwards very slowly. I would say it is very good value for money but it does need looking after carefully to avoid damage.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 25 Oct 2007

    This is my third rc heli and this is the best yet, and its under 20 quid! Once you sort the trim out its just like driving an rc car. 2 tips though, 1: dont be too heavy on the throttle. 2: to keep it flying true remember to adjust the trim after a crash! Overall very cool, a big kids toy!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 11 Sep 2007
    Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I have, for as long as I can remember, always wanted a remote controlled helicopter. The trouble is that I am well aware that they are very hard to learn to fly and that breakages will happen frequently.
    This is therefore my dream toy !!
    Yes I have crashed it a fair few times, but it is remarkably robust and shows no sign of any wear and tear. And it is easy to pick up and fly. I look forward to mastering it.
    At my work, 3 of us ordered one on the same day. We are all bolown away by this little marvel.
    Buy one, play the airwolf theme tune and smile with satisfaction.

    A colleague has just taken delivery of one of these, bought for his son for Xmas. Within 5 seconds of seeing the test flight, I had already decided I was having one for myself (38 years old). And by the time the first battery charge had dwindled, I had ordered it! It's possibly the best thing I have ever seen. Buy one now.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, while it lasts
    Fun to play with. Short airtime though. Lightweight design, but the downside is that it's very easy to break. Then, fun's over.

    Fell to bits almost immediately when my Grandson crashed it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun but a bit delicate.
    Make sure you have a big room for this as it's quite hard to control - but that probably make it more fun. Delicate polystyrene tail is easy to break if you crash it a lot. Read more
