A 19-year-old toy-helicopter enthusiast was killed Thursday in Brooklyn when his remote-control whirlybird plummeted from the sky and its rotor blades slashed his head and throat.

Roman Pirozek Jr. of Queens was apparently attempting an elaborate daredevil stunt when the trick went haywire and the copter hit him.

The freak accident happened about 3:40 p.m. in a ballfield in Calvert Vaux Park on Shore Parkway and Bay 44th St. in Gravesend — a hot spot for model-helicopter hobbyists.

Roman Pirozek was a 2012 graduate of the High School for Construction Trades, Engineering and Architecture in Queens — died at the scene almost instantly.
