Piccolo Eco V2 - Battery Powered Helicopter
    The Piccolo Eco V2 is an indoor helicopter that has fixed pitch blades. The helicopter can also be flown outside in very calm winds. It operates up to 20 minutes on Ni-Cad or Lithium Polymer batteries. The entire machine is just over a foot and a half long and weighs just over 1/2 lb. Due to the ingeniously straight forward design it is possible to fly this helicopter even with a simple 4-channel-radio.

    The Eco Piccolo V 2 is fully ball-raced out of the box. The unit offers precise control input due to a ball type swashplate, fly bar length and paddle weights which are  adjustable. The main blades also have user adjustable pitch (4 different angles) to vary hover speed. This allows to change flight characteristics on a fixed pitch helicopter for the first time.  The V2 now has improved impact resistance. A newly designed snap-on landing gear and standard rotor head safety clip will significantly reduce typical crash damages.
