With each passing year it becomes harder and harder to find gifts for my boys. They are stuck in that awkward age where most toys are too young and most things they want are too mature or very pricey. One thing boys never seem to tire of is remote anything. And I’m pretty sure even most adult males appreciate remote toys just as much as the little guys. This week I was able to introduce my kids to Silverlit’s Nano Falcon; the Guinness World Record Title for the Smallest RC Helicopter!
Smaller than 82mm and weighing just 11 grams, this RC helicopter can do everything the big guys can and just as well – if not better! Featuring 3 channels, this nano helicopter flies up and down; forward and backward; left and right. It’s simple to maneuver both indoors and out, and if you’re worried about its tiny size and how that might affect its flying ability, you’ll be happy to hear it also has a Built-in Gyro Stabilizer.The built-in gyro stabilizer helps make flying easier, which is great for smaller “pilots” like my boys. Of course, as with most RC heli’s they are fragile. When learning to fly your Nano Falcon, I would recommend flying in a large open space to eliminate what you can crash into until you’ve master the feel and control.
Complete with compact transmitter with charging dock and LED spotlight 4 “AA” batteries are required to get you started. Once you’ve inserted batteries, you will plug the helicopter into the charging dock – make sure the helicopter is off first. You’ll be ready to fly in about 30-45 minutes. Flying was shaky at first and it took some time for my oldest to get the hang of it. It definitely takes some practice, but once you get it, it’s actually a lot of fun. And I’m all for any product that keeps my kids entertained, that doesn’t involve the television!
