Command Force Chopper Alert. Yep, seldom in the annals of stuff-dom will you find such a patently useless piece of desktop fodder. A helicopter that does nothing except whirr around in a circle picking up crates from a pad. But maybe, just maybe, it could be the perfect toy for occupying our hands during those interminably long phone calls with our parole officer. £19.99 ($32.18).
There are two stick flight controls, one for lift and one for tilt, apply power to lift off from the helipad, and then tilt to fly around it. The helicopter has a little grappling hook that you can lower, and then test your flying skills seeing if you can pick up one of the little crates (two provided). Timed races on take off, crate pick up and landing may well not be very mature, but they’re fantastic fun.
