It fits inside the remote!
So small even Tom Thumb (or Cruise) would have trouble climbing aboard, the incredible PicoZ MX-1 Extreme is only slightly longer than a credit card
. Do not adjust your computer, it really is that teensy. And although you can't use it to buy groceries or scrape ice off your windscreen, you can conduct thrilling flights in incredibly confined spaces.
I've got a chopper in my pocket!
The latest in Silverlit's ever-increasing line of RC micro choppers, the Extreme takes microchoppery to the nth degree. Why it's so small it even fits inside a built-in compartment in its transmitter/charging unit. This means you can carry the entire shebang in one hand. Amazing!
Also available in Light Blue (Channel C) and Green (Channel B)
Despite its diminutive dimensions and a name that sounds like a hi-tech razor, the MX-1 Extreme will blow you away (not literally) with its impressive manoeuvrability. And because it's so compact, you can take it almost anywhere; we took ours to a board meeting the other day and the men in suits were so impressed they left the table in awe. Or maybe they just walked out. Whatever.
Let's compare sizes...
Slide off the transparent
Just like its bigger PicoZ siblings, the twin-channel Extreme has a crash-resistant polypropylene foam body
and features super-wide infra-red control, a built-in lithium polymer battery and adjustable trim control - all this yet it weighs just 7 grams. It really is squintingly small. As ever, the transmitter doubles up as a charger and a normal charge of 20-25 minutes should give flight times of up to 10 minutes.
Trimming - keeping your helicopter straight:
If the helicopter is in a spiral clockwise...
or it keeps turning clockwise...
push the left side of the trim repeatedly until the turning stops
The IR transmitter
Currently touted as the world's smallest remote control chopper, this marvel of micro technology will flatter even the crummiest of pilots thanks to an auto stability system that makes woka-woka-ing around in tiddly rooms a doddle. You'll be flying every waking hour. You could even dress up in a gorilla suit and attack yourself, King Kong style. (Yes, we know they were bi-planes but you get the idea). Someone's bound to do it, so it might as well be you.
