Had one like 10 years ago, when they weren't RC you just pumped them with air and threw and watched where it went (usually straight into the trees)

My dad has some sort of small helicopter deal he's always trying to get me to fly.  Its okay for like 5 mins.  Guess it would be coler if I was flying it in a really big room, like a gym or somethingg.  :dunno:

I'm actually a fan of the small RC heli's.  The problem is, they've gotten too good.  I've had plenty of bad ones that don't fly quite right but it always made it more challenging to fly around and land on stuff without ramming into a wall.  I got one for $20 last year that flies perfectly which was fun for a night or two, but not a challenge at all.  I've flown bigger ones outdoors but those are a pain because you're constantly changing parts and fighting the wind is ok until a gust comes and smashes your toy into the ground.

Would be fun to chase the cats around with that thing.
Where did you get that overnight bag?

Confirmed. Small ones are excellent for this because the cats will try to chase them.

we use an rc helicopter for fly-by shots over car lots, oil rigs, etc.  way cheaper than renting an actual helicopter.  hook a gopro up and boom.

Never thought about doing that before. That is really cool.
