This is one of those remote control toys which, even if in the strictest sense is aimed at kids, is also very attractive to children 14+ and adults of all ages. In fact, I would recommend that if you pick up one for your offspring, you may also want to pick up a model for yourself, just for educational purposes of course…You can pick them up on Amazon or try ebay for some auction offers.
The Radio Control Picoo Z Helicopter‘s main competitor at the moment is the remote control Flytech DragonFly. Now according to all the buzz (pun intended) this is supposed to be one of the big must-have toys this year and after some review, the Flytech DragonFly does not appear to be living up to the hype. Although the DragonFly is just as much fun, it is a little more fragile (bearing in mind that DragonFly’s are not the most sturdy of creatures so I guess it’s being true to nature…) than the Picoo Z. Saying that however, it is still a great flying remote control wonder-machine-thingy. The FlyTech DragonFly an go for just a little less than the Picoo Z after a half hour charge, say about 15 – 20 minutes but with picking it up of the floor and out of trouble as you get used to the controls you should get a half hours worth of fun for each charge.
