Free shipping true, but the 2ch is worth only $19.99, and the helicopter in question is worth $29.99.

Worth every penny


I bought one of these 2 days ago at Futureshop for $59.99 Canadian and have over 20 flights on it already.

This is a quality 3 channel heli and I would recommend it to anyone.

It is the most stable heli for indoor flight I've yet flown. I love this thing. Looks good and delivers the goods.

I am not new to these micros. I have an MCX300, MSR, Proto MAX and a couple of Minix very small helis.
I like all these helis but for indoor fun the Gyrocopter, MCX300 and Minix can't be beat.

This thing is nothing like those unflyable Air Hog things that are only 2 channel.

If you have any experience flying indoor micro heli's, this unit is so smooth that unless you go wilder than your experience dictates you will probably never smash it up. Keep your flight times to about 4 minutes to save ware and tear on the installed lipo battery and I believe you will have fun for some time to come.

For the price of this heli you are getting good value. I was a bit skeptical before buying it as I've bought some unflyable junk before that cost even more.

mine doesn't seem to bind. is there a trick to it? if you change the channel do you have to do something funny with the throttle to re-bind?

Should just have to press the throttle stick forward and then rear to bind..be sure to wait until the red LED on the heli quits flashing.

Propel RC Gyropter Problems


OK so I have a Gyropter Made by Propel RC (rooftopbrands doesn't really seem to exist anymore). Anyway, I just got it for Christmas and after I charged it up and turned it on for the first time and the top rotor blades started turning. I didn't think this was right, because all the other GyroCopters I had seen, none of the blades turned untill the throttle on the remote was pushed forward.

It seems to sync fine and I can still take off so long as it is not a smoot surface (it will start to spin wildly). It is stable while in flight and seems to work totally fine except for the one set of rotor blades turning all the time. Any words of wisdom from some more experienced users?? Thanks
