Landing Deals.

Nothing hones your productivity like an executive aircraft, equipped with all the tools you need to fly through paperwork. German designer Hervé Houplain's Desktop Helicopter features four different colored ballpoint pens (black, red, blue, orange) disguised as the rotor, and a magnetic cockpit for collecting paper clips (five starter paper clips included). Plus, a friction motor lets you pull it back a few inches to send it zooming through your workday. With its chrome form and function, it's sure to help you land -- and maybe even a new client (or two). Includes five starter paperclips. Made in China.

    My boyfriend thought it was the coolest gift!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Although it was on time, the CSR I dealt with to have it rerouted did so with kindness, efficiency, and caring. I couldn't have asked for better customer service when handling an out of the box issue!

      This was a gift for a former military and civilian helicopter pilot. Always looking for aviation oriented gifts and this was both attractive and useful for the office. Definitely a unique gift to give.

                Really a novel idea. I have never seen another like it. It is not the typical helicopter toy nor the RC helicopter. Perfect for the desk of a professional helicopter pilot!

                  After lots of research and not one to buy gadgets online I decided on this helicopter as a present for a copter aficionado. It was a little pricey for a gadget but worth it for someone who doesn't need anything! The quality seems good and it's a fun addition to the office. The pens are very small and not real useful so it's more for the look than functionality.

                  Would really love it if the description said the pen inks can be replaced.

                  Donna

                  What happens when the ink runs out?
