Measy RC7 2.4GHz Wireless Air Mouse Review
Compatible with Win 2000/ XP/ 7/ Vista/ 8, Mac OS and Android
Look and Feel
At 16.3cm length, 5.8cm breadth, Measy RC7 is slightly bigger than average size TV remote. However, it still feels comfortable in my palm because remote is light weight and weight is well distributed on palm. Commonly used keys are well within reach of your fingers.
Measy RC7 wireless air mouse has full size QWERTY keyboard, left and right mouse buttons, and media player playback controls (center blue buttons).
It is a tight squeeze for the amount of keys. I was worried about triggering of adjacent keys by mistake initially, as they were packed really close together. However, it did not happen as I would expect because a certain amount of force was required in order to trigger each key. Measy RC7 key tactility is different from regular TV remotes. Each key will produce an audible “click” sound when depress.

Playing Angry bird with Measy RC7 connected to my new android tv stick. After 5-10 minutes of practice, I was able to make pretty precise move without much problem.
On Windows 8.1 Pro
Installation on desktop is rather easy. Just plug in the USB receiver into your unused, Windows will auto detect the device and you are good to go. No pairing is required, however it took me 2 attempt for my OS to “sense” the present of the device. Once the device is installed, I have no problem using it again.
Measy RC7 is powered by 3x AAA batteries. It is very thoughtful for the manufacturer to include a small compartment to store the USB remote receiver when it is not in use.
I accidentally dropped the remote during test. The cover opened on impact and batteries came out of the remote. To my surprise, work flawlessly when the batteries were re-inserted and I could not find any physical damage from 1m drop.
RC11 manual was provided in the package instead of RC7. Probably it was because both air mouse were fairly similar in terms of functionality. Just that the button layout
