What It Is
What It Is
The sky is your playground with the super-fast and agile Swann Micro Lightning Helicopter. The helicopter's high-tech design makes it easy to control for even the youngest of users. The video game-styled controller features two analog control sticks and a trim controller, all of which can be operated with little or no practice. The helicopter has a rechargeable lithium battery that is easy to recharge using the attachment on the remote control or via a computer's USB port. It takes about 20-30 minutes to charge completely via the USB and 60 minutes using the remote. You get eight minutes of continuous flying time per charge. (Though most flights are a good deal shorter so the elapsed playtime between charges is greater.) The helicopter comes with a USB cable, spare rotors, and operating instructions.
Why It’s Fun
This is a toy that the whole family will like playing with. Micro Lightning has a great look and is easy to operate, so kids and adults alike will be able to fly the helicopter around and maybe even create some neat stunts.
Who It’s For
The Micro Lightning Helicopter is for ages 11 and up.
What to Be Aware of
The controller requires six AA batteries, which are not included.
As with any flying R/C toy, there is a bit of a learning curve to get the controls right, but this is easier than many others we have tried out.
This helicopter is for indoor use only.
