Traditionally, RC helicopters have been tricky little monkeys to control. No matter how many pairs of aviators we wore, the darn things just refused to fly where we wanted them to.
Thankfully there’s still hope for our two left thumbs, in the form of the stylish Gyro Flyer Apache R/C Helicopter. With its high-tech internal gyro system providing constant stability, the 3-channel controls let you pull off the trickiest of manoeuvres from as far as 10 metres away.
The chopper body is made from high density plastic, making it resistant to the odd crash landing and the rugged gunship styling will turn any dull desktop into a combat zone. It’s time to buzz the boss...

Pure Fun. This RC helicopter has the right balance of stability and speed to deliver an A* flight. While the flying time is a little short, thank-you Firebox for such a great product! Get this now! You won't regret it! Tom, North West, England - 28th October 2011
I have one of those and am having great fun learning to control it. Had many crashes but will get the hang of it soon lol. Keith Spiers, Folkestone - 17th February 2011
