Picco Z mini helicopter

Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to all! As usual, I am sure there are many techie gifts that have been given and received by all of you. The Nintendo Wii, Sony PS3, Apple Ipods, and digital cameras from various manufacturers were all hot gifts for this 2006 holiday season. But you might have already guessed about these gift items on your own.

One excellent techie gift that you might not have known about is the miniature radio controlled Picco Z helicopter! According to hobytron, this little guy is “the Smallest and Lightest Micro R/C Helicopter in the World!”. The helicopter can sit on the palm of your hand and it can be used indoors. The Picco Z helicopter is a gift that any techie would love! Anyone who has wished or imagined piloting their own helicopter can do so now!

pzMost stores such as Radioshack and Toys R Us are completely sold out of this product. If you would still like to get your hands on one, your best bet would be to try online at hobbytron. The product runs for around $40. If you would like to see the Picco Z in action, head on over to YouTube.com & search for “picco z”. Thanks to Dan Bell for the heads up on this one!

  1. I did not say I would buy you one. I sent you the link if you would like to get one yourself. If you don’t want to order online, you can wait until RadioShack or ToysRUs has them in stock in store again…
