The World's Smallest RC Helicopter Can Be Destroyed By a Fly Swatter

It was impressive enough when toymakers found a way to make remote control helicopters small and safe enough to fly around indoors. But their miniaturization efforts continue on as toymaker Silverlit introduces the Nano-Falcon, an RC chopper so tiny that Guinness has officially granted it the world record for smallest IR-controlled helicopter.

At just over two-and-a-half inches long, the Nano-Falcon has certainly earned that title. A lot of its internal components and electronics were made possible by advancements and miniaturization of smartphone technology, and despite its tiny form factor the Nano-Falcon is still fully maneuverable with the IR controller that dwarfs the craft. When it becomes available next month it will sell for around $46, but your newfound ability to discreetly buzz and annoy co-workers? That's priceless.

I've got a cheap RC helicopter of this variety, although maybe 2-3 times bigger than this one. They're tough to fly and require a good bit of practice. Most people manage to destroy theirs well before they've figured it out so I can't imagine this little guy surviving very long.
