Tini-Copter (Review & Giveaway)

Mr. TBaM is a typical man and likes playing with little gadgetty toys. Therefore when I was recently sent the Tini-Copter from 50fifty to try, I handed it over straightaway to him.

Ok, in all honesty it wasn't straightaway because I had a play with it first and then we had a little battle over who was going to have the next go. Then we had a competition over who could get it to take off, could fly it without it crashing it into the ceiling and then started chasing each other with it.

Back to basics: the Tini-Copter is one of the smallest 3.5 channel infra-red helicopters on the market. It's approximately 2.5 inches long and incredibly lightweight, the remote control sits nicely in both hands with a joystick on each handle to steer the mini helicopter. There is a flip-up charger in the remote control which attaches into the Tini-Copter and charges up the helicopter within 20-30 minutes giving 5-8 minutes. The remote control takes six AAA batteries. I was concerned with it's robustness and the fragility of the propellors, however the amount of times I crashed it (not Mr. TBaM I hasten to add) indicated it was very flexible and robust.

It's a very nifty remote controlled helicopter and moves quickly, too quickly to video. It had us both competing to play with it and was great fun. The Tini-Copter is suitable for children 8 years+ and I'd agree with that, it would be a good present for boys that age or older. Or indeed middle-aged men! At £30.00 it does seem a little pricey but for a young teen it would be a good present.

I have four of these to give away just in time to start thinking about Christmas. Simply fill in the Rafflecopter form below to be in with a chance of winning.

I was sent this product for the purpose of the review. My opinion is honest and unbiased.

    Is it quite complicated? Eleri loves remote controlled flying things, but she's only 5. She had the little flashy UFO from Boots a couple of years ago; it stopped working last year, don't know why. Maybe it bounced of the ceiling once too often!

    Id love a remote control bottle of Jack Daniels, one that pours my drink just the way i like it and never runs dry, mm that would make me extremely happy (and maybe a bit drunk, lol)

    A remote controlled hot drinks dispenser that delivers it to my bed in the morning! That would be lovely, just dreaming though haha ;-P

    I could do with a remote controlled potty-emptier. Especially for the really pleasant morning potties when I'm not in the frame of mind to deal with my OWN bathroom needs, never mind Squeaky's.

    (Alternatively a roomba so I don't have to hoover!)
