OverviewThis cheap helicopter was a break through in toy RC years ago. Things have since progressed and this model is no longer a good option. You should buy the Syma S107 instead of this.

Air Hogs Havoc Heli is Toy RC Helicopter. It has only 2 Channels. Up/Down and Left Right (Yaw).
There are some neat things about the Havoc ( aka Picco z) from a historical perspective.
- Originally held world record for smallest helicopter
- World Record for Lightest Helicopter – being made of foam
This helicopter can theoritically hover and fly forward but not in the same flight. There is no way to fly forward with this helicopter unless you add weight to the nose, then it become impossible to hover.
There have been many complaints of this Helicopter being only able to turn right, due to the torque of the main blade.
Reviews Around the Web
The Air Hogs Havoc Heli has been the low-cost mainstream micro RC helicopter for years, and it has been continually improved without raising the cost. It’s a good toy. However, I feel the RC world in general has changed a lot faster than the Air Hogs line itself, and the Havoc no longer dominates in value & quality.
I’ve really been enjoyiong my helicopter, but it definitely takes some time to learn and finesse to control. It’s very sensitive to slight movements on the controller. I was having a hard time getting it to move forward until I added some weight to the front of the nose. I tried a few things, including a dime, which caused it to zoom forward and hit the walls before I could turn it. Then it tried taping bits of aluminum foil to the front, adding bit by bit until I got the right amount of forward motion. Now I can drive it around the house with great control. The best toy I’ve bought for under $[...] in a long time!
