Gyro Flyer Radio Control Heli
We're not going to lie - we've had a prototype of the Gyro Flyer in the office for quite some time and it's safe to say that none of us can remember a time before it was in our lives. It's that good. It's pretty much the best indoor RC Helicopter we've ever had the pleasure to pilot - it's stable, easy to fly and looks insanely cool. With 3 channel control and an amazingly nimble turning speed, it does almost everything a normal full-sized helicopter can do apart from transport passengers or play a pivotal role in aerial combat.
We've been setting ourselves challenges - who can fly from one surface to another in the shortest time, who can pick up a paperclip with the legs, transporting messages from one end of the room to the other… basically anything that gets us out of doing work for five minutes. All in the name of research, eh? Subscribers to our YouTube channel will also have seen us monkeying around with the prototype (and creating a mini helicopter graveyard while we were at it).
Charging via USB, unlike many indoor choppers, means that there's only a short delay between bouts of aerial exhilaration - a massive bonus. It's made of sturdy metal and has a sleek moulded chassis, which means it has serious advantages over its more lightweight competitors on the market (and it could totally whip them in an aerial dogfight). With those sleek LED lights you'll be able to fly under cover of darkness too. Absolutely one of our favourites.

Bought the Gyro Flyer for my son's 12th birthday. It's brilliant, he had no trouble getting the hang of it and landing it on all different surfaces throughout the house. It's small but a sturdy piece of kit and can be charged via USB on my computer. Only downside is the draft it creates as he hovers over my work! Would really recommend it. I chose it on the recommendations of the IWOOT office, and they weren't wrong!
The Ultimate in RC Flying!
This Gyro RC Helicopter is excellent! This is a magnificent piece of kit, It has great stability therefore is great for beginner RC flyers. A gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, this enables the great stability without loss of speed and extra weight. At this price i recommend you but this amazing RC Heli. Don't miss out on hours of fun!
