^ I dont think thats considered "Micro" is it?? If your talking about the ones a little bigger than a dollar bill, then yeah, I got 3 of them. There kida cool but dont steer worth a shit. At least none of mine do and I spent a decent amount of cash on them figuring theyd be better than the cheapo ones.. I was wrong.

picco z got one a few months back (but now, the internal battery is dead ) and its a lot of fun to fly around (just turn off all electric fans / a/c vents) a paper clip taped to the nose made forward flight much better

i also saw a pair of dogfigthing picco-z lookalikes (with infrared "guns" ) where you can actually shoot down the other and make him loose control of the heli for a few seconds

I am with RC Steve....I have a Blade CP Pro, A Shogun V2, and two larger birds, A Kyosho Nexus and a Hirbro Shuttle. Anything smaller for me is considered a toy.

I think these are the ones that were on The TV Show Rob & Big they went to hobbyshop and purchased 10 of em cause they kept crashing and breaking great episode if anyone follows that show.

my brother has one, they are pretty fun but we found if you put a bit of weight in the front (ideally removing some from the back end of the CoG) you can get it to have more forward travel, other wise they just kinda hover on one place, not moving very much. The best part is launching them at crazy angles, they come back at you with a vengeance!

i've got a knock off picco Z. its quite cool, and just google 'picco z mods' to get loads of stuff come up. theres a whole site dedicated to it! i modded my controller to run off RC stickpacks so i can recharge in 15 mins and modded the heli in about a dozen ways... i just need some more tail rotors now!

I don't know what you are talking about....these aren't those Airhogs you see on tv. These you build yourself and if a dog tries to bite into one of these running, he'll need more than just a vet......

i wish people would read the whole thread before making DUMB USELESS comments "refers to all threads in general"

another loud mouth that did not watch the episode but still wants to comment about it. Read the ENTIRE thread and you will see that i was referring to the BLADE CPs on the show. they were flying the heli when it crashed the dog attacked it dont make comments if you dont know what your talking about.



I was simply informing people they had RC helis on the show.

people just love to try and prove people wrong all the time bunch of Fing TOOLS

This is what you said....RIGHT?????


Then may I suggest Middle School English........you are in need of a grammar teacher.

THE DOG ATE THE FIRST.......

When.......BEFORE or AFTER it crashed????

ON THE OTHER CRASHED IN THE POOL AND DIED......



Then you try to flame ME for not understanding??

Get real...tool.

BY THE WAY SHOULDN"T THIS BE IN THE RC FLIGHT SECTION?????

I didn't comment about the show......I commented about the micro helis and the other Scale Helicopters I own. And that these were bigger than what 4u2nv is talking about. Frankly, I never saw the show.....

BUT I DO KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO FLYING HELLICOPTERS!!!!! So why don't YOU stop threadjacking and read the entire thread (and not just you insignificant post) then hopefully you'll get what we all are talking about......
