Micro Mosquito
Do you know the name of the fastest pheasant plucker in the world? No, neither do we. But we can tell you the name of the world's smallest, lightest, quietest, fully-functional RC helicopter: it's called the Micro Mosquito and it has just hovered into Firebox.

Micro Mosquito
Speaking of ornithology, the Micro Mosquito is currently ruffling feathers throughout the world of RC aviation, as it is one of the most incredible flying machines ever to take to the skies. Weighing in at a mere 15g, this bug-like indoor 'copter is so small it can take off and land in the palm of your hand. Amazing!

Micro Mosquito
Thanks to its counter-rotating blades the Mosquito is astoundingly manoeuvrable. Once you get the hang of its twin-toggle, digital proportional transmitter you'll be buzzing around like a pro pilot. Up, down, hover, forwards, backwards, left, right - you name it. We just landed ours on the boss's head having taken off from the water cooler. Try doing that in a proper chopper. (Don't, you might decapitate someone).

Micro Mosquito

Launch pad charger

Ready to fly in the smallest of spaces straight out of the box, the Mosquito is powered via a charger that doubles up as a launch pad. A 45 minute juice-up will give you a full seven minutes or more of flying time - enough to hover around the ceiling, fly by the coffee table and buzz past the telly. This innovative triumph of micro-engineering even features a pair of green glowing 'eyes' - perfect for putting the willies up the cat when night falls.

Believe us, playing with the Mosquito is seriously addictive. We guarantee you'll be unable to resist a quick flight whenever you're lounging on the sofa or twiddling your thumbs at work. If you still haven't got the bug, hit the Buy button. Because flying the Micro Mosquito is a total buzz!

Customer Reviews

This is my first remote control helicopter and I was very surprised at how easy it is to fly. I am 14 and I highly recommend it to any teen or older.

I got it on xmas day and I loved it! I had 2 PicoZ but they both broke. This one is stronger and is better to fly and is worth the extra money. I have 2 PicoZ, 1 plane & 1 Flitec Dragonfly but this is the best of them all!!! It looks weak but it's very strong. It's good but I would buy the PicoZ first, then this to get the hang of flying helicopters.

The first Micro Mosquito I unboxed had a faulty motor, but Firebox agreed to replace it without any fuss and quickly dispatched a new one to me within a couple of days. I'm very impressed with what a sophisticated and delicate bit of kit the Micro Mosquito is for £50. After adjusting the trim, it takes off and hovers with perfectly. It isn't particularly fast although in retrospect this isn't a bad thing, as it's easy to crash if you're not paying attention. Touching anything with the rotor blades almost certainly spells doom for stability and the best tack is often to let it drop to the floor rather than risk damage trying to recover. After an hour or so's practise however, you'll be flying it around and landing it on people's hands (or heads) like a professional. Highly recommended!

Great little chopper - loads of fun flying it around my lounge. The eerie glow from the eyes is awesome. Quite delicate though - I've got to buy some more blades for it already, after just a week! :( Hopefully I'll crash less in the future.

Just taken delivery of Micro Mossie Helicopter, thank you for fantastic turnaround, FIRST CLASS. As for the product, well anybody who considers themselves a helicopter buff and does not own this little piece of aviation fun, they have not lived. To the despair of everyone I shall enjoy hours of flying pleasure - Noel Edmonds eat your heart out!!

I ordered the Micro Mosquito yesterday, and it was delivered this morning. Brilliant service, brilliant product. A must buy for aviation fans. Sofa's become buildings, tables become landing pads, ceilings become hazards and your living room becomes a whole new air-space. Very glad I bought this brilliant piece of technology, thank you Firebox!
