I have recently purchased the Gyro Zoomer Remote Control helicopter – the smallest gyro helicopter ever made at 11cm long!
Before I get started, lets just clear up what gyro is. Gyro is what makes the helicopter more stable and controlled in flight, therefore without a gyroscope your flying can be extremely shaky and a high risk of crashing.
I bought this helicopter from Amazon for £16.99 (click here to go straight to the Gyro Zoomer page) and I think it was fairly worth my money. I wanted a budget but good quality helicopter, and I think this has done the job.
Although the first item I bought was faulty, and only worked for 10 seconds after charging, Paramount Zone (the seller) happily replaced it without even asking for the helicopter back.
The second helicopter was a lot better and is easy to fly, but more advanced users can do many tricks with it. Charge it for 10-15 minutes and you will get about 20 minutes flying time, which is fairly good for a helicopter of it’s size!
Overall I would give this RC helicopter 3 and a half stars, mainly because the first faulty product let it down.
I will post a video of the Gyro Zoomer in action soon…
