Voted "TOP GADGET" In The Sunday Times

"GREAT FUN" Daily Star

Featured on the Gadget Show Christmas Special "This is the way forward, controlling your RC with your phone!" said Suzy Perry.

We get a large number of cutting edge gadgets and toys sent to us for testing, and it is quite rare for a product to stand out as much as this amazing new iHelicopter. It's a great product on so many levels all the way from the quality feel of the packaging, down the the awesome way you can control it from your Phone. I say Phone and not just iPhone because unlike other i-Helicopters on the market, this model also supports several Android phones as well.

"This cool Lightspeed iHelicopter that you control with your iDevice (and Android!) would make a great gadget gift!" The Gadget Show

"When the Lightspeed Helicopter arrived it was probably the single greatest threat to productivity in our office" PC Advisor magazine

So, you just download the free App (Copter Controller) from the apple App store or Android market, plug in the included IR transmitter and away you go. You'll instantly be top dog, and gain a huge amount of credibility as you pilot it around the office!

As the App is free, why not download it now (Copter Controller) to check out the cool user interface.

You can control it from your iPhone (all models including 5) / iPad (all models) / iPod Touch and supported Android phones click here to view all compatible devices

The helicopter can be controlled Up/Down, Left/Right, Forward/Back, and thanks to the inbuilt Gyro this is pretty easy to do.

So, what sets this phone controlled helicopter apart from the competition:

1. Compared to traditional remote controls, its just so much more satisfying control a helicopter from you phone, and you'll be the envy of all onlookers.
2. It has iDevice and Android Support compared to other iHelicopters.
3. The App itself will be updated often with new features meaning that you get the "new product" feeling again without any additional expenditure. E.g. a Flight Recording mode will be added soon, enabling you to record a flight and then the helicopter will perform the same moves again at the press of a button.
4. Compared to traditional controllers, you don't need to buy batteries for the controller which represents a lot of money saved over the lifetime of the product.
5. The TURBO button for extra forward speed is a real bonus.
6. The throttle stick can be placed into position and then you can let go of it and it will maintain the same height. This made it easier to control than with a normal controller where you need to keep the throttle in place.
7. Motion control is awesome fun - i.e. you can tilt the phone to make it move forwards/backwards and left/right.
8. The helicopter has cool LED lights on its canopy, and you can also turn these off to increase flight times if you like (just flip the switch on the App UI).
9. Unlike many helicopters coming out of China, the instructions are very well written and easy to understand.
10. We've been selling helicopters for over 10 years and this is without a doubt the most durable mini helicopter we've ever flow. The initial sample we had is still fully intact without the included spares even needing to be used and we've had some massive wipe outs over the last few weeks.


Surely this is why offices were invented. To create a large open are to pilot around this amazing iHelicopter with your iPhone, iPad, iPod or supported Android Smartphone!

A brilliant bit of fun. Fantastic value for money. A great gift for boys who love fun gadgets, and geeks who love their apps! - Digitpedia

Overall, the slogan on its box sums up this phone controlled helicopter perfectly: Just download the App and let the fun begin!

This helicopter is the best one you can buy for the price. I have had this for over 2 years and it is still as good as new. I have crashed it hundreds of time and even on a concrete floor from 20foot. It is very reliable and easy to controll.
Fantastic Review by Andy

I've had this helicopter for 3 days now, and I think it's absolutely brilliant! It's really stable, the app on the phone works well and the interface is so simple to control. The fact that you do not need to keep buying batteries for the remote is a real bonus. For those who have not flown a helicopter before, this is one of the best indoor helicopters out there and at such a great price. It only takes a few minutes to master, and this helicopter is so well built that it is unlikely to break from a fall. It comes with spare rotors too, so if you are too enthusisatic when flying it you don't have to worry about finding replacement parts. Overall a very well-built and fun heli, it's the best I've ever flown!

Brilliant fun. Great value. Works well with my Samsung Galaxy S & my wife's iPad 2. It's really robust too, even withstands crashes into walls (although don't let it get caught up in your light fixtures!). As for Paramount Zone, I can't fault them. Their service is probably the best I've ever come across on the internet. They always back very promptly and were happy to replace/refund my broken copter. Would definitely buy from Paramount again, and thoroughly recommend this little gadget!

What an amazing toy! My son, who is a gadget freak, said this was the best present he has ever had. It did take him some time to get used to flying it, but this helicopter seems to be indestructible even after falling from 10 feet. So good I am buying one for myself, love it! Have to say as well, great service and speedy delivery from Paramount Zone.

I recently bought one of these after seeing it on the gadget show and all Ican say is wow! It's easy to set up and the free app is simply brilliant. Its easy to fly the helicopter and the controls are so simple even my 6 year old nephew can fly it and land it with confidence. I wouldnt hesitate to recomend it to anyone with a compatible phone. The build quality is amazing and the app interface is well made and easy to use. My final word on it? BUY ONE!!! Or even buy 2/3 and fly against your friends!

Although it took a while to get it airbone, once I got used to the controls this was a real blast of fun! It's worth every penny, the only downside is that I keep having a little go in the morning and it's making me late for work.

An awesome Christmas gift! Review by Mikey Knight
Quality

I've just been bought this helicopter for Christmas and it's awesome. It's easy to control and so much fun to fly. This is my 8th helicopter and it's by far the most robust. A slight draft knocks it off so it has had a few bangs, but it's withstood them all and still in good shape. I'd recommend this helicopter to anyone thinking of buying one. It's fantastic!
Good heli and great value for money Review by Oliver
Value
Quality
I've only had this mini heli for a few days, but already I've had a lot of fun flying it around the house. It only requires a short charge time, and then you can have lots of fun flying and landing it. Within a few minutes I was able to master landing on a shoebox and even someone's hand. Some collisions can be expected, but this mini heli is really robust so will survive quite a few crash landings. I probably wouldn't try and use it outside, but for an indoor heli it responds really quickly even when not in Turbo mode. This mini heli is a nice little gadget, it's durable and available at such a good price. Recommended for all intermediate and beginner fliers!
Fantastic micro engineering and flies really well Review by Ricky
Quality
Value
I loved this helicopter. It is stable in flight, responsive and looks great. To build such capabilities in something so light and small is amazing! Its quite easy to let your fingers slip off the screen controls, but once you get used to them its fine. It's fairly sturdy too, so will take a few thumps on landing with no damage but it does have a weak spot...the tail rotor motor. Mine jumped out of its housing on a bouncy landing (from 2ft up) which broke the wires with no way to repair them and no spares so unfortunately its flying days are over. Other than the damage caused by my bad landing skills, this little heli is great and such good value for money.
The best phone heli out there! Review by Mr Plant

This is the best iPhone helicopter out there! I've had great fun with it and it works fine controlling it using my phone or my iPad. Charging takes around 40 mins and even though it does take quite a bit to get used to the controls but have you tried other remote controller helicopters?! Compared to traditional ones this is super easy to control. I recommend first getting used to landing, hovering in mid-air and landing. Once mastered, try turning and forward and backwards flight. It's great fun whether you are 14 or 64!
Great fun! Review by Jeff H

Well, it's a remote control helicopter but not as we know it! The app is great for the remote and very easy to control even as a beginner. Really is great fun and does work very well. Very robust (I've crashed a couple of times) and comes with some spare props. The only drawback is that it does take a while to charge the chopper. If I could make an improvement it would be to have two chargers, but all in all I think it's fantastic.
Outrageously good fun! Review by Captain Flymo

My girlfriend bought me one for my birthday and it is beyond a shadow of a doubt my favourite present, pretty much ever. Unbelievably good fun, stupidly durable (steel frame and robust parts - I've crashed it a silly amount of times and there's not a mark on it) and amazingly good value. Seriously, snap one up at this price because it is worth twice the money with ease.

Just had the copter delivered and it worked on my Android Desire running 2.3 firmware. WOW! This is such a great gadget and you really can control it very well. Unfortunately I didn't get any spare blades, however I hope I dont need them! You really can't beat the price either, less than £35! Such a bargain!

I saw the videos for these things and ordered two! They arrived yesterday and all I can say is Wow. I fly RC helis anyway so didn't expect too many problems but the helicopter is so easy to control!

This helicopter is fantastic! It is very controllable, but not so easy that you get bored after five minutes. I'm getting better and better at landing and performing tricks everytime I fly it. The customer service from Paramount Zone was also top quality, neither product nor service could be faulted. Thank you so much!

This helicopter is fantastic to say the least! I've had loads of different types in the past where the trim doesn't work and it just spins around uncontrollably. But that's not the case with this baby! Plus, with the app you can download and use it with your smartphone. It's amazing, and all of my friends are jealous! A+++
