The Silver1 from GS is marvel of modern engineering. Never before has a radio controlled helicopter of this size been as agile, controllable, and robust. While there are cheaper of it, the quality of the Silver1 is unsurpassed.
While it is small, small enough to lift off from the palm of your hand and fly in your living room, it is a 4-channel, real, fully operational helicopter. It is not one of those toy helicopters that has coaxial blades and a tail rotor that pushes it forward. This micro rc helicopter operates in essence like a real helicopter does. It has a single, fixed pitch main rotor with full forward/back and left/right cyclic control, and a smaller tail rotor for anti-torque and yaw.
The Silver1 can be flown as a first helicopter by someone wanting to get into the hobby. The built-in electronics even feature a toned-down mode that limits the range of the cyclic servos so that the helicopter won't make too sudden moves. Once hovering and basic maneuvers have been mastered, the full range mode can be switched on. And when you start getting really good at flying it, there is even a physical upgrade that can be done to the swashplate links (don't worry if you don't know what that is now, it is all explained in the manual) to make this little machine fly even faster!
