    Picoo Z/Air Hogs Havoc tiny RC helicopter. I got mine at Target.

    It's an RC helicopter that weighs 10 grams which makes it:
    • The lighest production RC helicopter ever
    • The smallest production RC helicopter ever
    • Nearly indestructable because the body is styrofoam, so there's pretty much no mass it can use to hurt itself with
    • The most fun ever as a result of the above

    If you've never flown an RC helicopter before, then you'll need some time to get used to it (it's not the easiest thing to instantly learn; you'll also need to trim it like any other RC helicopter), but this thing is so fun. A bunch of us at work got them and flew them in the empty suite next door. It was all fun and games until another co-worker brought in his $150 RC helicopter that looked like it was going to kill you when it flies at you.

    Plus, it has a blinking blue LED. Blue LEDs FTW.

    So buy it immediately. Just be sure to get one called either "Picoo Z" (the spelling is very important; not "Picco" or "Pico" which are Chinese ripoffs) or, as its branded in the US, "Air Hogs Havoc."

    The only problem I see is that it can't whack people's drinks off their tables - my #1 hobby when using anything RC (aside getting small but heavy and powerful RC trucks to ram people's tables, making them panic thinking an earthquake happened, and scramble looking for the source of the commotion).

    I have to say, as I enjoy vodka tonics on Fridays after work as has become the tradition, I have yet to see any RC vehicle attempt to steal them.

    I thought it was spam too until I realized it was from filburt.

    I suppose we could also attach a magnet to the bottom and zoom over tables, grabbing any metal object not nailed down.

    ...

    Hey, that's a great idea!
