4.5 Great for beginners Bigskins | 06/01/2012 | See all Bigskins's reviews (1) I am new to rc helicopters and this is realy easy and steady to fly. Great to control and really responsive to controls. it can also take a bit of a beating, i was messin around flying it upstairs (kids don't try this at home) and hit the banister and it fell down the stairs from top to bottom. Lived to tell the tail with no broken parts.The only downside to this and the reason i didnt give 5 star is the flight time. it takes around 25-35 minutes to charge (via usb) and im getting around 4-6 minutes flight time (continuous flight). its a great and fun thing to fly but it sucks i have to wait another 30 min to use it again. othere than that i cant fault it, well worth the money.
