While spending time at this years AMA Expo, I found this little heli at the Nitro Planes booth.  Watched the guy’s flying it and when I found out that it only cost $25.00, I wanted one!

The Syma 3 Channel S107 Mini Indoor Co-Axial Metal Body Frame & Built-in Gyroscope Helicopter is very easy to fly and is perfect for living room flying. 

The co-axial design and gyro make it very easy to hover and the design of the blade attachment makes it very forgiving when you happen to fly into something, like the cat!

A unique feature is the charging system.  It comes with a USB cable that allows you to charge the heli from your computer.
