It wasn’t that long ago since three new PicooZ R/C Helicopters saw the light of day. Now yet another Silverlit micro chopper has been released.
Currently touted as the world’s smallest remote control chopper, this marvel of micro technology will flatter even the crummiest of pilots thanks to an auto stability system that makes woka-woka-ing around in tiddly rooms a doddle.
Here’s a video of the PicooZ MX-1 Extreme in action:
(This video is no longer available.)
Just like its bigger PicoZ siblings, the twin-channel Extreme has a crash-resistant polypropylene foam body and features super-wide infra-red control, a built-in lithium polymer battery and adjustable trim control – all this yet it weighs just 7 grams. It really is squintingly small. As ever, the transmitter doubles up as a charger and a normal charge of 20-25 minutes should give flight times of up to 10 minutes.
Why it’s so small it even fits inside a built-in compartment in its transmitter/charging unit. This means you can carry the entire shebang in one hand. Amazing!
The PicooZ MX-1 Extreme is yours for £24.95 (about $49 USD) over at Firebox. Available colors: silver, blue and green.

I am sure this chopper can provide hours of entertainment. Nevertheless, I prefer online gaming. It gives me the kick to play games and challenge people all over the world. What’s ever better is I can make money playing games… Wow!! hmmm.. I think I will give this chopper a pass..
That’s pretty neat. It didn’t look too small until I saw it in a hand. I like the controller/case too 🙂
Hmm!not that bad ,but not bigger than my minicopter that does not need remote controls, but have a life of its own.
I can confirm it really IS a huge difference between the old PiccoZ and the new MX-1!! Can only recommend the latest version – smaller, lighter, more agile, more fun.
Cool, thanks for the info! Maybe it’s time to get one. 🙂
Thank you for all the comments!
