If you were like me, a child who walked past Radio Shack a 100 times to check out that latest cool RC car, then give the Syma S109G Apache AH-64 RC Helicopter a try. I saved up enough money to finally buy that pro-grade $119 Golden Arrow RC car and ripped the local playground like nothing was there.
Fast forward the clock twenty years or so, and after seeing the RC helicopter a few times during my usual routine mall visits with family, I felt the huge urge to buy that toy RC helicopter, hoping to bring back the child in me.
Now knowing how important money is, and how frugal I have become, I wanted to buy something that I can buy without breaking the bank. After a few hours of researching, I finally found the perfect match from Amazon, selling at $18.95 (price may vary):
Syma S109G 3.5 Channel RC Helicopter with Gyro
I must say that this RC helicopter had everything I could imagine it to have: LED lights (who wouldn’t love the awesome Apache AH-64?! [video]) and a rechargeable battery so you can have fun again and again!
Check out this short test flight video I created with my son. Make sure to check out the bloopers at the end!
If you are still not convinced, here are all of the high-res photos!
So, what were your childhood must-haves?
