The product is great, you can't really fault it for the price, seems stable in flight and easy to control. However as for play.com... I ordered two of these and they sent both on the same controller band 'B' which is fine for me because I got the second one for spares and repairs. May well have been a different story if I bought them as a gift for two kids though, there would have been allsorts of controller confusion. On the whole great product and great service, maybe they just need to be more careful with orders of 2 or more. I suggest leaving them a note about this when you order, as they come in controller bands A, B , or C.
This is great i bought the apache first but this is even easier to control just as much fun and improved down to the fact you can charge the chopper from the mains as opposed to draining the controller batteries . good value well done play
This is a really nice toy and very easy to control. I've had a couple of helicopters in the past but this one blows them away - pure awesome!
It's bigger than I thought, but I guess it needed to be given the twin rotors. It gives off a fair bid of thrust as well resulting in a mildly forceful breeze. A couple of minutes is all you need to get to grips with it, don't crash it though.
By far the best remote contol toy i have ever bought! It's so easy to control and looks amazing. My little brother has crashed in about a million times but its still in perfect condition!
Only problem is flying it outside... Even if there's a tiny breeze in the air the helicopter blades collide and it crashes to the ground. But still an amazing and very tough gadget!!!
This is a super little hellichopper. Great fun and easy to use. Surprisingly robust as well. Took a few rough landings till I figured it out and nothing fell off or broke so really pleased with. Can't help but shout "No man left behind" every time I use it.
An hours charge time for 6 mins play is a bit of a bummer but I'm sure it'll just stop me from getting bored of it. It's charging now as I type. Can't wait to play with it. You gotta get one.
I brought this as a replacment and i think this one is so much better. Expect it to arrive 4-5 days though
i bought this as a xmas present for my 44 yr old boy!!! ( my hubby ). he loves it...it has kept him occupied all xmas. i thought it work once or twice and then be no good but he has crashed it loads and it still works. Excellent buy!!!!!!!!!
well impressed with this product .....very detailed,..little hard to fly but it does get easy after a while and very stable once in flight ...great value for money well done play .com !!!!
My experience of the helicopter has been poor. It worked O.K for the first flight. I took between 15-20 mins to charge( This is an indication of a low quality Li-on battery) and the helicopter would only fly to a height of 2ft.
It is difficult to control and not suitable for younger people. The vertical control lever returns to the down position when left alone. On take off It kept spinning round and round no matter what I did, it also it went either forward and backwards every time, both times I tried to adjust the controls. I could never get it to hoover properly. My other helicopter is the Remote Control Helicopter: Gyro Apache, which has 76 review and that is perfect, that helicopter is suitable for younger person. This is a VERY POOR QUALITY HELICOPTER. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS HEICOPTER
