3 channel Ultra Micro Coax Heli from Walgreen's with IR control $20

This is as cheap as it gets for a 3 channel coax Heli. Not sure if this price is unique to my local Walgreen's or what. The first one I bought was $10 but the second one was $20. Well worth $20 IMO. So I now have two.

When I saw the thing, I thought for sure it would be at least $30.
I also like how it fits in the plastic case that it comes in for storage and its tiny so it does not take up much room.

Excellent! I decided to go back for another and this time they were $20. So there was a pricing mistake. Still, its well worth $20. It makes the 3 channel Twin Thunder look bad. Solid IR operation to. This thing has an awesome hover. The Forward speed is not that fast but it does go FWD REV, UP Down, Left right and it can do it all at once. Its fully proportional 3 channel control
I highly recommend it.

Flight controls, Left stick throttle, right stick yaw and pitch. Its very easy to fly and is very stable. This is the first Heli I have have flown thats got the tail rotor pitch setup and on this one it works great. I guess this would be similar in control as the Radio Shack MM.

I don't have a AH havoc thats in one piece but I would estimate that this one is about the same size but being a coax, its rotor is taller. That last Heli that WG had was a POS but this one looks very good and has screws that hold it together so it can come apart for service or repairs. The tail motor looks like the Tommy AERO SOAR Main motor. Both of the Helis I just tried flew perfect right out of the box.

I thought I recognized the name from another thread of its brand.
Looks as if HELIFORCE is coming along since there last choppa during black friday sale.

Here's the Walgreens Link, but doesn't have pic, and lists its availability for in-store sales only.

LOL no no these were the paper match sticks folded over hooked on the rubber band you sling the rubber band between your thumb and index finger like a sling shot hook the match on draw back aim and let it fly.

Hahaha, thats what came to mind when you brought that up.
My brothers and I used to do same thing, but we'd set off smoke bombs and slingshot bangsnaps at the infantry.
