A little over a month ago, I reviewed The Silverlit Nano Falcon - the world's smallest RC helicopter. People are still asking me about it, and the crazy thing is that it's a requested activity daily here at Rock Father HQ... daily. The girls ask me to pilot it for them every single day - and I do. I like to think it's the Island Hopper from MAGNUM P.I. as I allow it to fly throughout my office and the rest of the house. But enough about our house - how about YOURS? With Rock Father's Day coming, I'm throwing this out there as a Gift Guide item, and the folks at Silverlit and I are teaming up to get one lucky reader hooked up with one of these choppers to call their own - a $50 value!
I've covered and reviewed a ton of vehicles here in the "Rides" section of THE ROCK FATHER, but until today, I have never thrown down any virtual ink devoted to a helicopter. Truth is, until a few weeks ago, we'd never owned an R/C helicopter, though I've been tempted on occasion by those displays that tend to pop-up at the wholesale clubs and mall kiosks on occasion. The the folks at Silverlit Toys sent use their Nano Falcon - the world's smallest I/R model helicopter - a fact certified by Guinness World Records. Straight out of the box, this thing is fascinating.
