• 2.4Ghz frequency with automatic channel selection lets you fly with up to seven people at the same time
• Manufactured for indoor use

What can I do with this helicopter?
This air combat helicopter with infrared lasers lets you have your own battle in mid-air. You can fly it for up to six minutes and recharge in just 30 to 40 minutes. Realistic lights, sounds and vibration feedback help to provide a truly immersive experience. A successful hit causes side lights to illuminate and the helicopter spins 180 degrees. After the third successive shot, the defeated helicopter spirals to the ground automatically. Ten seconds later you can get back into the battle. The great thing is you can fly with up to seven other people simultaneously, thanks to the automatic 2.4Ghz channel selection.

Is this helicopter easy to fly?
The 3.5 channel manoeuvrability gives you the ability to fly backwards, forwards, left, right, up and down using the movement of the controller. This makes the helicopter easier to fly compared to other radio controlled devices. The controller also has dedicated buttons to adjust the speed of the helicopter, so you can perform faster and more advanced manoeuvres to avoid your opponent(s).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun...... I got this for some fun in the office. After I realised you can actually battle another one, I went back and bought 2 more. WOW, we now have to much fun in the office haha..... I was unsure about the controller as is not what I am used to, but its so much easier than normal stick control and it really works, feedback on the control when your shot as well. I am thinking about buying the wife and myself one for xmas and battle to decide who does the washing up !!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the controls. got this as a present for my nephew and niece. One each. They love them. So easy to fly and they have a battle/fire feature so they can shoot each other, I was a little worried about the firing part but its just an invisible beam so nothing actually shoots out. the controller is different to what I am used to and seems to work well, they love it. they have had so much fun already. only had them a few days and they are hooked. Looks like I will be getting one myself to join in the fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ideal gift. I purchased 3 of these for my grandchildren. As they are into flying things and this toy says you can have battles in the air, safely. They loved them. I am grandma of the year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun, in a small space and not on a games console I've always been sceptical of small toy helicopters as in the past they have always proved themselves to be a waste of money. This is not the case with this one, good manoeuvrability, feedback is great and it bounces well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Fun These helicopters are great! Brought two, one for dad and one for me, we battle all the time. Durable and so easy to control, the battle feature is also really well thought out. I found out on their website you can get FREE spares for a year. Also they have some great social media pages too, Twitter @PropelRC_UK and Facebook - Propel RC in the UK where it is easy to ask questions and win prizes!! I may get my mum one too!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very pleased I bought these for my step kids this Christmas and they were extremely well received (2 boys, 1 girl - 13,12,10). My husband loved playing with them so much I got him one for his birthday. Now my daughter wants one (10). Cons: low battery life, hard to control, breaks easily (but were lovingly and manually repaired by my husband). I would recommend these but for 10+ as they're quite hard to steer and therefore a bit dangerous.

My grandsons force 2 will not charge, is there any remedy.   Thanks

Asked by: Smellyjelly
This could be two things , a faulty copter , or a faulty charger , If the item is still under warranty i.e 12 months or less it can be taken to your local Maplin store and exchanged for a replacement or alternative.
