That's why we go to the ends of the known universe to dig up those fresh R/C Copter nuggets that feature the most unique flying mechanics for your geek pleasure. This Silverlit Tandem Z Chinook Helicopter certainly fits the bill. With two rotors arranged front and rear in a military style the Tandem Z looks unlike any other small R/C copter we've seen. The three channel control allows you to hover motionless, turn right or left and move forward and backward. For steering the Tandem Z actually pitches the front blade right or left while the rear blade remains stationary. Much improved trim dials allow you excellent control to compensate for unwanted rotation. There's even a headlight on the copter you can turn on and off via the remote. Important Note You'll need practice and a gentle touch to fly this copter well, but once you get it in the sweet spot you'll find that you have much better control to fly where you like. . . .
