I noticed that several places that had it are pulling it from the web site. What gives? I just cracked my blades yesterday and was planning on getting another... Still flies, I just wanted a back up.. This is no bueno. Maybe they are banned by NTSB.

Bought one on Saturday
I just bought one on Saturday. 29.99.
Maybe they are pulling it off the sites since everyone else is selling it for 39.99.
Go to the store and they should have it. Just cannot advertise the price??

Told you
I knew it. I saw most of everyone is selling for 39.99. And they were selling at 29.99. Thats why I ran to the R.S last Saturday to get it.

Now they had to pull it out maybe because they had competition complaining about the price advertised. Now they inserted it back in with the 39.99. DAMN! Should have bought a few more.

Or MAYBE it's just ShellDude buying them all.
SHELLDUDE, you should be building your SJM and trimming it out. I have been following your thread on that. Waiting for my SJM400v2.

Sorry guys for the small hijack of the thread.

Now back to PICCOZ!

Does anyone know if Radioshack originally listed it as the "picoo" z, because this is the one I got from them, and now the website says "picco" z. If so, is there a difference? Or was it always Picco and I received Picoo? 100% sure mines "picoo"? Would this make the price difference?

My picooz is silverlit.

I think $40 is too much.

I won't buy another after both of mine die.

Silverlit was unable to sell us any more to us due to the fact that Walmart, Toys R Us and Radio Shack bought out the remaining supply for Christmas. We were offered the opportunity to buy more but at an inflated price, it was a great toy for under $35 but that's about all its worth.

A Canadian company has since bought the design and has taken over manufacturing so no more units are being made this year.

The good news for the heli guys is that you'll be able to get them at a Walmart or Radio Shack near you. They are tons of fun, though I was disappointed to find that Silverlit does not offer any type of warranty on even those units that were DOA.

The Picco/Picoo name variation was due to some legal issues with a trademark infringement. They are from the same company though...

Hope this helps answer some questions.
