Santa Fe Springs, Calif. – November 12, 2013 – Swann Security, the global leader in security monitoring solutions, debuts the Mosquito™ mini RC helicopter. Even though Swann’s new Mosquito has a rotor diameter of just 3 inches and weighs less than 1 ounce, its speed and superior maneuverability secure it a spot in Swann’s full line of RC helicopters. The Mosquito is available at Fry’s for $29.99.

The Mosquito is the perfect gift for first-time pilots looking to get started in the high-flying world of RC helicopters. Swann’s Easy-Fly Gyro technology that helps keep the helicopter stable at all times, means this powerful little flying machine is designed with dual-blade rotors so rookie pilots can quickly become experts with little practice and perform all of kinds of tricks and stunts.

The Mosquito uses a powerful infrared signal to communicate with the aircraft yoke-inspired remote control. Complete with joysticks and trim control, the remote offers six-way multidimensional control for up, down, forward, backward, left and right movements.

The rechargeable 3.7-volt Li-poly battery in the helicopter provides up to seven minutes of continuous flight time and the remote control is powered by six AA batteries (not included). The RC helicopter can be recharged via the remote control or by plugging it into any USB device.

“The Mosquito is a good example that good things can come in small packages. It’s small but very maneuverable. We think it’s a great gift idea for the holiday season and a product that even big kids will want on their list for Santa!” says Jeremy Stewart, Vice President, Marketing of Swann.


The Mosquito is available at Fry’s for $29.99.
