Skyline-G Series RC helicopter
For Christmas, I received two inexpensive consumer-grade remote control (RC) helicopters made by Protocol: the TurboHawk 3, a small, indoor-only IR model, and the Skyline-G, a larger, indoor/outdoor radio frequency model. This gallery offers a look at both copters. Read my Geek Gifts 2012 review of the TurboHawk 3 and Skyline-G.
