Mini Bell Hughes 300 Helicopter – Only $21.50 – This Mini Dragonfly is Awesome

The Mini Hughes 300 Helicopter, better know as “The Dragonfly” is an awesome little helicopter. It is smaller in length then the original Air Hogs Havoc Heli which gives it a very dynamic response when flying around.

Although the Mini Hughes is not made by Air Hogs you wouldn’t know it as the major components look like the are made side-by-side in the same factory as the Air Hogs version. The tail and main rotors look exactly the same as the Havoc and the controller is exactly the same.

mini-hughes-300-2 I was a little skeptical at first that this was just going to be some cheap little knock off and that I was wasting my money. I was wrong! The Mini Hughes is as durable as the Havoc Heli if not more. I think the main reason for that is that it is constructed entirely out of plastic as opposed to foam like the Air Hogs Version.

mini-hughes-300-1 The only part that I have not figured out yet is how to adjust it for more forward movement. With the Havoc Heli you can twist the tail rotor so that it gives a little downward thrust. That is not possible with the Hughes 300. Also the Mini Hughes doesn’t have the extended nose of the Havoc Heli so there is nothing to stick a pin into. Don’t worry though, I will figure a way to get this guy shooting around my room!

The Mini Hughes 300 is a cool little heli and a welcome addition to the hanger. You can pick it up at Amazon.com for $21.98 which is a still since my local hobby shop has them for $39.99.
