Spectron BV - Silverlit Branch office presents: Picoo Z X Rotor Micro Helicopter

The Micro MosquitoThe simplest, toughest and cheapest of the fleet (and with the most inexplicably long name), the Picoo Z is a great beginners chopper. It has no forward or backward control, but is fun to fly straight from the box and is a very good way of learning how to control torque (the side to side swing of a helicopter). It’s absurdly robust, and what you lack in control, you gain in it’s ability to take the inevitable knocks of a novice flier. It’s great for kids, and for those people who really can’t be bothered to read the instructions or grapple with learning how to fly a helicopter. To describe the X Rotor Micro Helicopter - or Pico Z for short - as small is rather like saying that the Pacific Ocean is quite big and somewhat on the damp side. At just 17cm (under 7 inches) long and only 4cm (1.5ins) wide, this gnat of a flying machine is the smallest and lightest miniature R/C Helicopter in the world. How they managed to make this remarkable heli so incredibly small, and yet so astonishingly easy to fly is a mystery, but they did, and we love them for it.

Fitting in the palm of your hand, the Pico Z X Rotor is made from tough expanded Polypropylene foam, and incorporates an auto stability system, making it a breeze to fly, and possibly the most disruptive office toy we’ve ever seen. A deserving crowd gatherer, the helicopter comes ready to fly with an innovative pre-installed two channel proportional wide beam infra red control system, and a lightweight Lithium Polymer flight battery that’ll give you a good ten minutes of flying time between charges. The two powerful micro motors can be recharged in less than half an hour with the portable charger that’s part of the control unit.

We’ve been buzzing it about the office wasting lots of valuable work time, and despite our dodgy flying techniques pranging it into assorted plants and walls, it just seems to bounce off and come back hungry for more - there’s even a little blue LED strobe that flashes in-flight for night flying.

This helicopter was born (in so much as an inanimate object can be) to fly, and if it wasn’t for the fact that we occasionally have to do some work around here, we’d spend all our time flying missions into alien desk territory. It really is very, very tiny, and utterly un-put-downable.
