Realistic Helicopter Fun
The Havoc Heli has twin rotors for stability and four-way control for flying in any direction with accuracy -- up, down, under, over, left, right, forward and backward. Like a real helicopter, the Havoc can hover in one spot. It even manuevers through the toughest of obstacles. Intended for indoor use, the helicopter operates outdoors with zero wind conditions, and can fly up to 100 feet high in the air. The Havoc Heli is also equipped with a flashing blue LED light for night flying.
Not just for flying solo, the Havoc Heli is designed for fun with your friends. With three selectable frequencies, up to three Air Hogs helicopters can fly in the same room at the same time. Beyond flying for fun, the hook attachment on the bottom of the helicopter picks up objects for top secret racing missions -- with or againsts friends.
Tough, Tiny, And Ready To Fly
Measuring six inches long and weighing only ten grams, the Havoc fits in the palm of a hand. Extraordinarily lightweight, the helicopter is built for crash resistance with a flexible, high-impact EPP foam body. The internal battery offers twice the amount of flight time as other R/C helicopters. The remote control charges the rechargeable LIPO battery in 15 minutes, providing six minutes of flight time. The remote requires 6 "AA" batteries (not included). Available in yellow, blue, and red, the Havoc Heli comes completely assembled and ready to fly.

The Havoc itself is extremely lightweight and surprisingly durable. So durable that even after catastrophic collisions with solid objects (walls, furniture, family members, etc) the little thing shrugs it off and keeps on flying without so much as a mark on the rotors. And so long as there isn't a breeze in the immediate area it's also rather agile.
The controls are very rudimentary for such a machine, and if you've ever used an RC car controller you'll be dealing with much the same thing here. The left toggle is your collective, which moves the Havoc up and down. The right toggle controls yaw, essentially your steering. Technically there should be a control toggle for pitch (forward/backward movement) and others have commented that it's absence detracted from the product. I agree to a certain extent, but will also say that it's tough enough trying to control the Havoc with the two provided, so I understand why it's not there.Read more ›
There is an altitude control and a left/right control only. There is no means for making the helicopter go forward right out of the box. In order to make them go forward you have to add a small bit of weight to the end of the nose so the helicopter dips down a little bit in the front. There are a few stick-on pads included in the box just for this purpose but I've found they're not quite enough weight. I add all three pads centered on the bottom about a half-inch under the nose and then a little extra weight (half a small paperclip or a little wire) taped right to the tip of the nose. Too much weight and it'll go forward too fast. Experiment to see what you like best. I'd recommend getting comfortable with hovering and trim before you add anything though (and be sure to read the instructions for some great tips).
The helicopter when fully charged is almost too powerful. Once it runs for a minute or so the battery power drops off a tiny bit and flight becomes a *lot* more stable. Be patient.
It takes a *really* fine touch on the controls, working both at the same time, to get solid, consistent flight and you'll only get that with a lot of practice. I'd say most people can get good in about 6 full charge/fly cycles if they have some RC plane flying experience, maybe 8 if you have no prior experience.Read more ›
I wish it was quicker to charge and had controls for forward and back. I don't know how long the controller will last. It isn't built for the long haul like video game controllers are. On the other hand, it might outlast the copter given various mischievious impulses.
Note: the rotor should not be allowed to hit bare skin. It hurts. Some people will pretend it doesn't hurt, but will seek revenge.
This feature set would be just fine on a $10 toy. But this thing is $40, and is made of plastic. The only pros I can see here are that the blades are light and floppy enough that they won't take much damage if you smack them into a wall.
For much less money, I would highly recommend a V-Max 6020-1 (do an eBay search for that). They go for around $26 and they have 3 channels of control (throttle up/down, yaw left/right, and pitch forward/reverse). They have coaxial blades (two counter-rotating rotors) for a true stable hover. They have metal frames. They come with USB charger cables so you don't have to keep wasting AA batteries charging the helicopter off of your controller. And best of all, they have built-in gyroscopes for added yaw stability during forward/reverse flight. In my opinion, they're the best helicopters you can buy for less than $90.
As an owner of the Havoc Heli, a Swift 6020-1, and a Walkera Lama2-1 (a 4-channel micro coaxial helicopter that goes for around $90), I can say with confidence that you would be wasting your time and money buying anything less than 3 channels, especially if you're paying 3 channel prices for a 2 channel heli.
