Air Combat Helicopters
Helicopter with realistic controls and laser battle mode.
Take to the skies, err… skylights with the R/C Battling Helicopter! This indoor copter is a blast to pilots thanks to an innovative control system and laser combat capabilities.
The Air Combat Helicopter puts you in the cockpit with its motion-controlled flight stick that gives you a realistic piloting experience. Tilt the flight stick in the direction you want to move and watch the helicopter maneuver in response. It’s the next best thing to being inside a whirly bird.
You’ll need that extra maneuverability when you take on your friends in battle mode. The helicopter’s infrared technology lets you stage epic dogfights with up to eight choppers! It’s basically laser tag with helicopters, which is undeniably awesome. The aerial battles feature lights, sounds, and vibrations for an intense interactive experience.
Because we receive this item in an assortment of colors, we must sell them randomly. You will receive either Red, Gray, Black, Titanium, or Blue.

Fun to fly
Air Combat Helicopters turn your living room into a war zone. The motion-controlled R/C helicopters are a blast to navigate around the house as you perfect your flight skills. You can take off from your dining room, negotiate your tight kitchen corners, and execute a soft landing on your desk helipad.
When you’re ready to take on the competition, challenge a friend in battle mode. Take flight and dogfight with up to seven other pilots, using infrared lasers to shoot each other out of the sky.
The responsive handling of the Air Combat Helicopter comes from its motion-controlled flight stick, which gives you a much more intuitive and interactive flight experience than a traditional controller. Simply tilt the stick to the side to turn the ‘copter, then tilt forward or backward to fly forward or strategically retreat.
The trigger on the underside of the stick controls the speed of the blades. So, you can simply raise and lower your craft’s altitude by adjusting your trigger pressure. Work on keeping your whirlybird stable in the air, then challenge yourself to fly around obstacles. With a little practice, you’ll be an ace pilot in no time.
Engage the enemy
Once you’ve completed flight school, grab your Air Combat Helicopter and challenge a friend (or seven) to a dogfight!
The helicopters shoot infrared lasers, which are registered by sensors in the front and side of each craft. When you score a hit, the enemy helicopter lights up and spins out of control. The pilot’s flight stick also vibrates and emits sound effects so they know they’ve taken fire.
After a helo registers three hits, the aircraft is temporarily disabled and descends gently to the ground. After being grounded for ten seconds, the pilot regains control of their craft and the battle resumes!
Made for Mayday
When piloting an R/C flying machine, we find that crashing is just part of the fun. That’s why the Air Combat Helicopters are tough enough to withstand ordinary collisions. The flexible blades are designed to absorb impact, and the durable body is well-adapted to rough landings. Whether you lost altitude while learning to fly or had a mid-air collision in battle, the ‘copter is always ready to get right back up again.
The Air Combat Helicopter is designed to make it as easy as possible to take flight. The stabilizer bar and built-in gyroscope provide mid-air balance to keep you flying toward your target. If you notice that the helicopter’s flight appears a little off, use the trim feature on the flight stick to adjust the copter mid-air.
While you’re getting the hang of flying, take advantage of the two different rotor speed modes to help you acclimate to the controls.
And when you’re done flying, charge your bird with the included USB cord and get ready for your next aerial excursion.
Take two for less
Air Combat Helicopters can be bought individually, or you can save money and buy a pair! You’ll need that extra ‘copter to challenge a rival pilot to an epic dogfight duel. Or if you want more solo flight time, keep one of your aircraft charging at all times so you don’t have to wait for fuel ups.
Question: Can I use this outside?
Answer: The Air Combat Helicopters are designed for indoor use only. They’re pretty lightweight and would be susceptible to the wind if taken outdoors.
Question: How does the two-pack discount work?
Answer: You can buy one helicopter for $59.99. If you buy two or more helicopters, the cost per helicopter drops to $49.99!
Question: How long can you fly when fully charged?
Answer: A fully charged helicopter can fly for about 15 minutes. It takes around 30 minutes to recharge.
Question: Will these break if I crash?
Answer: The Air Combat Helicopters are made to withstand rough “landings”. We certainly had our share of spills while learning the controls and got to test that durability firsthand. The helicopters still worked perfectly fine and, aside from a few scuff marks on the blades, were no worse for wear.
