Holding the Gyro Flyer

Start the chopper up!

Yes, we realise most R/C helicopters are not that easy to fly. Here at Firebox even the most accomplished pilots have come a cropper, smashing headfirst into our Airwolf shrine, lopping off the boss’s top hat and plummeting into piles of discarded choppers that have been stamped upon in fits of frustration.

But all that is about to change thanks to the ridiculously easy-to-fly Gyro Flyer. Unlike flimsy polystyrene rivals, this revolutionary 3-channel R/C chopper boasts a sturdy metal body and advanced gyroscope, giving it staggering in-flight stability. It’s unlike anything else in the skies. Even a complete novice will be buzzing around with the greatest of ease after just a few minutes. Forget all that wild lurching, this is ultra steady and super manoeuvrable straight out the box.

The Gyro Flyer is also the first R/C whirlybird capable of landing wherever you fancy. Yeah, yeah, we know some of you veteran heli-pervs can already pull off pinpoint manoeuvres. But with this baby you can land on the bloke opposite’s mousemat without knocking tea all over his iPhone. Unless you want to. Don’t you just love being in control?

Customer Reviews

AV8 helicopter fantastic. Had the same problem as many others - screeching rotor and wouldn't fly. Fixed it! Just make sure all the screws securing the rotors are tight. If one is a tiny bit looses the blades slip out of balance and all the torque compensation is lost in the counter rotating blades causing it to spin out of control.

Firebox says: Great tip David. Thanks!
On first flight was very impressed but inevitably the battery ran out and now im not sure if its charging or not :( seems I am not the only person having this issue so would like to know if this is a common fault and if it is indeed charging even thought the light isnt flashing??. Either usb or remotely charged I get no charging indicator lights....

Got this as a Christmas present! Looks great but after using the copter for only 20 mins or so. The top rotor spins but not the lower one doesn't !

I bought all my Christmas gifts from firebox this year and supprised all the family with loads of really cool presents!! I bought Gyro Flyer helicopter for myself and was delighted with it at first. But then I was very dissappointed when the forward/backwards rotar stopped working; just after its 2nd flight even though its not damaged. Now it won't move in the air anymore :(.
