RC Helicopters – The ultimate Christmas Gift

It will soon be that time of year again when we need to be thinking about what gifts to get for Christmas, well i am very organised for once this year and have already decided i am going to buy my son a RC Helicopter.

Looking online at RC Helicopter specialist www.r-c.uk I have been looking at either the EFLY EF136 or the EFLY MSP190.


The EF136 is made by a company called EFLY and is a fully controllable RC Helicopter, by that i mean it can fly in all directions – So up, down, left, right, backwards, forwards and spin on its axis. The EF136 is powered by a lipo battery so flight times of 10 minutes are easily achieve and the coaxial layout of the rotor blades means its a very stable helicopter suitable for indoor flight.

Just like the EF136 the MSP190 is also made by EFLY and is fully controllable in all directions, this particular RC helicopter is much more agile thanks to the single rotor blade design. This allows the helicopter to bank during turns meaning much faster flying can be achieved.

I have decided that the MSP190 remote control helicopter is going to be the model i purchase for Christmas, given this is a more advance model and only costs £39.99 i think there will be hours of fun had on the big day.

Apple has turned into a family unit name. The iPod, iPad and iPhone product offerings represented about £128 billion in deals in 2011 alone, a number that is relied upon to climb in the nearing years. Most of us cannot even think of how big the business is, however when it breaks we go to repair shops for repairing them. The Apple brand is clearly a standout amongst the most famous on the planet, which is the reason the tech monster charges a high premium for their items.

Need of repairing Apple device

Consistently, many tech gadgets get damaged or break. Now, most of them are not under insurance coverage and it is not also easy to buy a new one as they are too costly. Hence, come the urgency for repairing them. Accordingly, the inquiry in respect to whether a broken Apple item ought to be repaired or supplanted weaving machines numerous individuals’ query. Knowing the advantages and disadvantages of each, and being mindful of your individual circumstances will help you make the most effective choice.

To Repair or to replace: that is the Question

Whether you need to repair or replace your apple device would certainly depend upon whether it is under warranty or not. Apple generally provides a warranty of 90 days and if those days are not over then you should always go for replacement of your apple device.

Pick an internet repair business that has far reaching background with iPhones and other apple devices; Apple is making these devices more hard to repair (which have prompted much feedback of the association’s practices), so you will need to completely assess any outsider repair organization before essentially giving them your device.
Replacing may be the better alternative on the off chance that you need to overhaul or if the expense to do so is less expensive than repairing it. This is particularly valid for iPhones, as transporters frequently give clients immense rebates on items when they re-establish their agreement.

Choose the best repair centre for repairing your device

If finally you have decided to repair your device, then you should be choosy enough to choose the repair centre, so that your apple device is in good hands. We all treasure our apple devices, be it iPhones or iPads. Hence, the repair centre must be competent enough to meet our requirement and return us our product working normally as it was earlier.

Repair Your Apple Device ASAP

For someone like me, whose every data is stored inside their apple device, life becomes hell when there is any problem related to the iPod, iPad or iPhone. I need it to be repaired immediately or else, everything around me seems to stop. Now, I have always been in the dilemma that whether to repair my Apple device at any Apple store or at any other private service centre. I tried to weigh the advantages and disadvantage of both to come to conclusion.

Repair at Apple store

When there is any problem with any of the Apple devices, I may take it to any apple store. The main advantage of visiting an Apple store is that their technician has the best and most up to date knowledge about the products and they know what type of problem may arise to these devices. Then I can always be rest assured about the parts that would be replaced in my device, as it is always expected that apple would give me original and genuine parts.

Now the disadvantage of going to an Apple store is that they are always very crowded and it would take many hours for them to repair my product. When I have all important data on it, I just cannot let time pass by. Another disadvantage is that the repair cost would be very high in comparison to that of a private store.

Repair at other Service Centres

Apart from going to apple store, I can also choose any other private service centre to repair my apple device quickly. However, the problem that lies here is that the technicians may or may not be experts in repairing the Apple devices. They may not handle quite a number of such products regularly. The advantage is that they would be cheaper and if I can get assured about the quality of the replacements then there must not be any problem in changing them.

That said if you can find a good repair store with good reviews on independent review websites then you could save your self a lot of money. Unfortunately i have damaged my apple devices many times over the last several years and i always use a good repair company for all my iPhone repairs. They alway use the best quality parts and the repairs are usually completed on the same day. Every time i have used them i can not tell the difference between the aftermarket parts and the genuine original apple parts fitted on my iPhone prior to it being broken.

She advised me that if by any chance my iPad falls in water or I drop it from my hands, I should not panic. Taking some simple steps would me recover my iPad mini again and I can find it in working condition. I would share this with all so that if you all face such situation, then you may recover from them too.

Rice theory

Please do not consider this ‘Rice’ as the staple food of the Asian. Rather, if your iPad mini falls in water then keep it in Rice. When you keep your iPad mini in rice sack, rice soaks the water and then your device again starts working properly. If done at a right time, you even do not have to worry about the water destroying the different connectors inside your device.
