I bought an Infrared Remote Control Helicopter, on Ebay for around £4.00 plus postage from Heliville (now called Island Online)
This is a Mini Electronic Toy Helicopter (Polesteyrene base and Plastic Blades) approximately 5" x 10" and is Fantastic to play with. For it's size it reaches incredible heights - at least as high as the gutter on a standard house. It is fairly robust and if hits hard ground, from a sensible height, it surprisingly does not break that easily.
The rechargeable cell in the Helicopter charges in about 1/2 hour from flat. The connector inside the Control Unit is placed in the side of the Helicopter to charge up. It uses 6 x Alkaline AA Batteries (not included in the product). When the controller is turned on, a green charge light will come on, and go off again when charged.
The Seller is Fantastic to deal with, and if problems arise in a reasonable amount of time, they do their utmost to rectify the problem.
The price is affordable, you could spend more if you wanted to, but for the cost, it is an excellent "First Buy" to get used to using a remote control aircraft.
The estimated time of deilvery to the UK is upto 5 days (Despatched from the Channel Islands).
