Swann: RC Helicopters
The Swann company has made some killer remote controlled helicopters. They have a total of eleven helicopters to choose from, and I was able to check out the Micro Lightning helicopter. This helicopter is fun and the controls are so easy that it took me little time to learn how to fly it. The helicopter came already assembled so you don’t have to fuss with constructing it. The helicopter moves in a realistic way around the house, or about as realistic as you would expect a helicopter in your house to look. I did notice because of its size, wind does effect it and even flying in the house around windows or air vents you have to make adjustments which is part of the fun.
The Swann Micro Lightning runs on a built-in lithium ion battery which can re-charge anywhere since you can use the cable connected to the remote control or through your computer’s USB port. The battery takes less then an hour to charge and the Swann easy-Fly Gyro Technology provides stability for the helicopter. The remote control has a 6-way multi-directional flying includes up/down, forward/backward, left and right turn.
No matter how old you are, you will be addicted to flying this thing all around your house, or outside if your mom or wife yells at you. The Micro Lightning sells for $69.99 and can be purchased at the Swann website.
