PicoZ's first Micro Helicopter may have been small, but this is truly fun-size. It's the PicoZ MX-1 Extreme – a 'copter so small it fits inside a cubbyhole in its own remote control.

PicoZ's given it an extra-hot wash and double doses of shrinking pills to squash it down to just 118mm long from nose to tail, yet it retains the functionality of a fully-fledged flying machine.

Indeed, it's the world's smallest remote control helicopter, weighing just 7g and measuring a full 17mm shorter than its predecessor.

A 25-minute charge will give you enough juice for ten minutes of flying fun. Just make sure you steer it safely back to base before the battery runs out – we don't fancy your chances of finding it in the long grass.
