Significantly more stable than your average ‘copter, the Micro Drone features four rotors and automatic gyro control, meaning increased safety for cats, glassware and unsuspecting family members. Plus, you no longer need the military budget of a powerful western nation to afford one.
Not content with fearlessly flying in a straight line, the Micro Drone is capable of some pretty outrageous aerial acrobatics – performing sharp turns and 360° flips in mid-air.
Lightweight and agile, yet sturdy and well-constructed, the Micro Drone is easily controlled via the compact remote control which features a digital display as well as a fully customisable layout (so southpaw pilots are all set).
Really, there’s no need for us to drone on, because it’s a flippin’ Quadrocopter!
Suitable for ages 14+
Stable and speedy Quadrocopter
Full Gyro Control
120 metre flight range
360° mid-air flips
USB Charging Port
Pre-programmed algorithm to perform 360 degree flips
Awesome little machine. So stable, and fast, very impressed. Gotta give it 9/10.
If we could buy replacement blades and batteries this would be a 10 out of 10 product! Colin Taylor, Warrington, United Kingdom - 4th March 2013
Firebox says: High praise indeed - glad you like Colin, sorry about the lack of spare blades - fly carefully now!
Great little gadget it was so much fun.... For a few flights. Now more often then not the drone is non responsive and if it does respond I only get a few flights and then it goes back to not responding.
Such a shame because it was quite expensive and it seems most people are having fun with theirs :(
Also would you please speak to your supplier about the possibility of being able to supply spare parts as I have ordered £27 worth of spares (overpriced) and still not received anything.
Seems a shame to be leaving a moan as a review, I typically trust Firebox to supply high quality products. :(. Kirt, United Kingdom - 10th December 2012
Firebox says: Hi Kirt, give our customer services team a shout on firstname.lastname@example.org with your order ID and we'll see what we can do to help.
My daughter had a helicopter that lasted a day before crashing too much and breaking. Is this a bit more robust. Claire, Suffolk - 6th December 2012
Firebox says: Hey Claire, this is a very robust helicopter, however we wouldn't recommend crashing it from a great hight!
How much weight can it carry? John, Ireland - 10th November 2012
Firebox says: Hi John, I've talked to our supplier and they reliably inform me that it can carry up to 30 grams. However, carrying any weight will severely reduce the flight time!
Is there a manual for the controller? Chris, Uk - 9th November 2012
Firebox says: Hi Chris, I've had a chat with our supplier and it can now be found on their website! http://www2.zippyshare.com/v/83093327/file.html
How long does a recharge take? Andy, Wales - 8th November 2012
Firebox says: Hi Andy, it takes around 25 minutes for an 80% charge and 40 minutes for full charge (depending on the power source). You can do this through a laptop USB charge or an iPad wall socket USB port (which is the faster method).
