Syma ChinookThe Syma S026G is a great little remote-controlled helicopter that you can fly indoors, even in small spaces. The body is made with high quality materials, so it should be durable even after a lot of crashes to the floor.

Syma S026G is the gyro version of the mini Chinook RC helicopter. It’s suitable for beginners because its control is a breeze after a little practice. It has very responsive controls and lots of power when flying and stopping.

Syma Chinook with remoteThe price of this remote control helicopter is pretty low, so you shouldn’t have too big expectations about the power that you can expect. It charges through USB and the battery life is only around 6-7 minutes. But one benefit of this is that it only takes about 20 minutes to charge, unlike a lot of other remote control vehicles that take much longer.

It’s very light weight and you won’t want to use it outdoors in windy weather because the wind will throw it around. Other than that, there’s not much to criticise in this fantastic little RC helicopter.

In summary, you’ll want to get the Syma mini Chinook S026G if you’re looking for a beginner-friendly RC helicopter that is also fun to handle for seasoned RC flight fans. It’s a good choice if you’re looking for a cheap remote control helicopter that can fly in the house.

    My son asked for one of these but when I saw it in the shop I thought he might be disappointed with the size of it. So I showed him your video, and he still says he wants it, so I have ordered now. Thanks

      No batteries, Fred, it charges from the USB port on a computer. You could get a plug with a USB port to charge it off the mains, if you wanted, but that would be a separate purchase.
