Revell, the company that sells remote-controlled vehicles and model aeroplanes and the like, has launched a mini remote controlled helicopter that allows you to display a message to others midair.

Called the Texter Helicopter, the copter works by letting you upload a phrase via USB from your computer to be displayed via glowing LED lights in the upper rotor blades.

Priced at £49.99, the easy to control aircraft measures 170mm x 90mm and will last about 8 minutes on a 50-minute charge.

That might not be a huge amount of time, but it should be enough to get your message across to those you want to flash market, or if you are looking just to hurl some random abuse at your neighbours without seeing them face to face.

The Texter Helicopter is in the shops now. - learn about it / talk about it / deal with it At parents can find all the advice they will need to keep their children safe online.
