We ordered my son the Picco Z tiny remote control Helicopter for around 50.00 for Christmas and it came in totally dead and unworking. We have tried to email and call, but all attempts have gone ignored. We have since heard from others that their Picco Z's are fake and they are a known scam company. We are now beginning to feel like we got taken.

If they prove me wrong, I will report to let it be known. I have seen 3 recent complaints from others on this company, so I'm not holding my breath. Too bad when it involves heartbroken kids.

PicooZ is the legit brand .

AUTHOR: Robb - (U.S.A.)

Sandra,

I just read your complaint against Hobbytron and their product "Picco Z".

There are several types of mini-helicopters being sold as Picoo Z. The knock-offs have varying spelling of the real name. Your knock off had two "c's" versus the two "o's". The original, legit brand is made by a company named "Silverlit". They also manufacture and sell the Air Hogs brand to all the major retailers through their U.S. exclusive lincensee "Spin Master Ltd". You can go to "Silverlits" website and list a complaint. They're looking for consumers who have bought knock-offs of their products. You can also read more about Hobbytron and the current injunction against them from "Silverlit" for copyright infringement.
