    Pros: Easy to use, Small


    Describe Yourself: Parent of Two or More

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    As with all helicopters I have tried, a bit difficult to start off with but after a few goes it is pretty good at doing what you want it to do. Even my 12 year old was using it. Very small so I wouldn't imagine it could take too many hammerings into the living room wall (which we did a little to begin with)


From the manufacturer

The global model maker Revell is powering into the remote-controlled market with Revell Control. With Christmas fast approaching, this new value-for money, strongly branded range of helicopters, aircraft, cars and boats is ideal for anyone from impulse toy purchasers through to gadget fiends.

The range comprises beginners and semi-professional RC models with the latest infrared, MHz and GHz technology. Simply insert batteries or charge up, then the fun starts as you’re “Ready-to-Run“ and “Ready- to-Fly“.


There’s no neater gift for beginners than the SuperMicros (£34.99), at just 12cm they’re the hottest and smallest helicopters around. Pirate, Sparky and Tiger will soar into Christmas stockings with their eye-catching designs, rugged aluminium fuselage, 3-channel infra-red controller and electronic gyro system. Easy to control and nimble in the air, these helicopters make indoor flying child’s play.

For the more advanced flyers, other Christmas highlights include the Aquila Pro Helicopter (£69.99), a ready-to-fly 27-MHz helicopter. With its plastic canopy and electronic gyro system, it’s light and easy to control; meanwhile you can’t ignore the Big One (£89.99), a striking XXL helicopter suitable forindoors and outdoors.

Keep your feet on the ground and enjoy driving like the original with Revell’s Street Cars (£109.99): the 1:16 scale Audi R8 features a powerful electric motor and comprehensive standard equipment; the Mercedes SLS AMG is 320 mm length and shines with its original design and four-wheel drive. Go crazy with the Outspeeder (RRP £19.99), a mini high speed car with built-in roll bar for action-packed stunts.

All Revell Control models are true to the original, officially tested and compliant with all European standards and come complete with batteries,
spare parts and a detailed instruction manual. Plus the extra reassurance of being supplied by a global leader in plastic model construction kits.

Revell Control model kits are available from all good toy and model retailers.
