The latest addition to the mean Mosquito BladeRunner Series is this six legged, orange-eyed exceptional 3 channel flier. With cutting edge micro-motor technology and patented dual-rotor design, the Mosquito 3.0 is the most precise and stable helicopter system we’ve ever seen. Not only is it guaranteed to be non-malarial, it’s also Deet-proof – although a heavy dose of spray could, and probably would, royally screw up the finely tuned electronics. The control you can achieve with this top flier is truly superb due to its exceptionally smooth motor system, allowing for very smooth take offs and landings, and precise forward and reverse control.
It comes with a helicopter launch pad that doubles as a charger, and a half hour charge will give you a full seven minutes of flying time before it needs refuelling. The controls are so good that you can take it off from your hand, fly it round the room and land it back on your hand again – if you’re any good of course. It’s really quite the most fun bit of indoor flying kit we’ve ever had the privilege to play with.
Couple of tips for novices: Always take off and land in a clear area; make sure there are no draughts where you are flying as it’s a light machine and is therefore adversely effected by wind (like the broccoli eaters of Kent); ensure the machine is fully charged before flying; send all your children and pets to another solar system while you practice. Ok, that’s more than a couple of tips.
