Gizmodo Video: Picco Z R/C Helicopter Crashes, Loves the Smell of Napalm in the Morning

We've been feeding our R/C helicopter jones with this Picco Z copter, a micro-flyer made of styrofoam and capable of flailing around for a full 8 minutes on a 20-minute charge.

We're still working on our piloting technique, but even with the special aluminum weights attached to the nose, the little bugger just doesn't want to go forward. Hovering is its specialty, as you can plainly see. That, and crashing. A lot. The horror!

Still, it's tons-o-fun for your $39. Plus, the babes in the office liked it. A lot. In fact, one of 'em was at the helm of this mini-beast as we shot this footage. In fact, she's the best chopper pilot in the whole damn joint.
