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!
