I've got enough socks and slippers so this year I've asked Santa santa for a RC Helicopter. He replied ''which one?'' and he gave me a budget of £30
Anyone bought an ''entry level'' RC helicopter (or chopper, budgie, mail wagon, bringer of defeat and destruction .. getting carried away now Crying or Very sad ) that is good or sheite.

I had one last year. Santa got it from Hawkins Bazaar. It was around that price & is around 9 or 10 inches long.
Great little toy for indoor use, possibly a bit lightweight for outdoors unless there is no wind at all.
Great fun learning how to fly it. You will crash it often to start with but mine was very durable & didn't break.

I have had a fair few indoor/outdoor ones of the last couple of years. My advice would be to give totem hobbies a call and speak to kevin or you could pop in and speak to them in person. They are real helicopter experts and if you buy from them and you crash it they sell spares aswell.

Totem Timber are excellent. I had to laugh when their roof was leaking a while back ( as usual ), one of the office guys had a Phantom 2 drone up in the air from the hobbies dept, with a gopro camera, checking out what was wrong with the roof.
Great video, the trouble is they never bothered to physically get up there and fix their roof. Hence the brooms most mornings.

I use Totem (Cattedown) quite a bit. Keen on price but by God there are one or two working down there that are a bit 'special'.

Excellent guys - TVM.
Hawkins bazaar is great. I've bought a meerkat that repeats what you say, a lamb that toddles about ''baahing'' and a dino keyring. I did notice the RCH's. (or for filthy minded Angry the choppers!)
Now then Angry - I live in Mawnan Smith where, at 60, I am a young man .... mind you the young chick in the tea shoppe scrubs up OK.
