Default Red LED strobe light (not blue) on my Pico Z

hey there, one quick comment, i just got my Pico Z from hobbytron.com, after finding out that the tail rotor doesn't turn, not being able to change the frequency channels (nothing mentioned about it on the manual) and noticing that instead of a Blue LED strobe light my heli has a red one, i am starting to think if i have been ripped off...

any comments?

It is sounding like a knock off. The channel switch is to be able to fly other piccos. To change the channel of your picco(?) would require a bit of soldering. Tim

You have an illegally made clone[:@]. Hobbytron is well known for selling illegal products[:'(]. The box should be blue , say its from Silver lit and it is suppose to be called a Picoo Z, not Picco Z. Sorry

i get what you mean, so that means that if i have two of these the heli's would find a free channel and i can just find it by switching on the remote? I thought the way this would work would be by having a switch on the heli and another on the remote so that i match these in order to work.
