Think Gizmos Mini RC Helicopter first look. I always say don't buy second hand toy helicopters in charity shops because they will always need the battery replaced or they will be damaged in some way that means they need replacement parts that are no longer available. I usually manage to stick to that rule but sometimes they manage to tempt me. This one looks nice but does need a new battery and there is a little damage to the balance bar. I am not sure if I want to spend the time and effort fixing this one. I have checked the ThinkGizmos website and this item is marked Discontinued and no mention of any replacement parts.

That looks like you have got gold there, Ok it needs another battery so you could say it is gold that needs a polish.
I remember a long time ago a series on satalite TV about making a fully functional huge model of HMS Illustrious, they amalgamated a toy helicopter and an airfix model of a Westland Seaking helicopter to fly off the rear deck.
The body coming apart on this one gives you the same oppertunity, if you can't stretch to a model kit you have just bought a pile of balsa wood, you have modelling skills......

Hey Granddad I recently bought some old RC helicopters for cheap 3 were 2ch and one 3.5 ch I guess cause it looked similar like this one you are using, Problem is I did not get transmitter for it, Just got 2ch transmitter for other 3 and all work fine just needs new battery but I cannot find 3.5 ch remote . So can I use any other 3.5ch IR remote to control this heli???

LIDL Foam Glider - 011 - All together Think Gizmos Mini RC Helicopter 1 month ago   03:17

LIDL Foam Glider - 011 - All together. Minor hiccup due to my impatience but all up together and it flies across my garden. Recently I spotted a YouTube video of an unboxing of a LIDL foam glider toy. I thought it might be an interesting RC conversion candidate but before I could find one in LIDL there was already a YouTube video of an excellent slope soaring conversion so nothing I will be doing in this series will be new but it will be me trying to do it.

Weight unmodified 165g
Dimensions 86 cm span 68 cm length
