Despite what you may see above, this is a fun little plane.
Yes, your first few flight times are quite short, but in time the battery life improves - as it does with most rechargeable batteries.
Flying is easy, if you can use an ordinary RC car/truck/boat you can fly one of these. Just dont pull full left or right of your plane will fall out of the sky, just nudge it around tapping left and right.
Oh, one thing that isnt explained in the manual. To charge the plane you have to turn the controller on and then off (while wired to the plane) to charge it up. I didnt know this and so i was nearly at the point of sending it back.
