    I had a Havoc, It wouldn't fly worth poop though. Ever since it came out of the box all it did was spin in the air, uncontrollably. If I find it, I will definitely do this.

    Got a couple of those... Only paid once though :) Hobby People was nice to me. I've gotten them to work, but 2 channel sucks though... Especially the Havocs..

    Dude, the only place you can find a Picco Z is in the Philipines. I should know, I'm from the Philipines.

    They're the same thing, just marketed from different companies.

    I have that problem occasionally. If trimming doesn't fix it try changing the tail rotor.

    You should attach the helicopter at an angle to the plastic plate, so the main rotorblades provide up- and forward thrust. The small back rotor should work in order to turn.

    Picco Z? ROFL! You must be from the Philipines. I got one of those 2 years ago when I came back to the Philipines for the summer. It's pretty nice.
