The Silverlit and I-fly range of models have their place and whilst some flyers may not consider them to be 'mainstream' R/C models, there's no denying that they fly well and are great fun - just right for a flying session in the office at lunch time or from the garden patio on warm summer evenings - we like them.
The Silverlit helicopters in particular have sold in the hundreds of thousands across the globe over the last couple of years and have served to provide an introduction to R/C flying for many newcommers, particularly youngsters - if you've a budding young flyer in the family then these models make a perfect introduction to the sport. Dave Rawlings at Flying Toys Ltd has kindly sent us some samples of the new releases for 2008 so cast your eyes downwards to see what's on the way!
