  Not too bad.

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my brother and found out that his wife had the same idea. She bought a different one which broke (due to a few crashes) by boxing day morning. However this one is still working. The motor is a little underpowered. It works well when fully charged but it drains the battery very quickly and won't go very high at all until after another charge. It's very stable in operation (compared to the other one) after adjusting the trim, but the steering isn't great. It quite good for indoor use as it isn't very fast and doesn't go too high. Also it's very light as the body of the unit is made of polystyrene. My brother has had a lot of fun playing with it and it has survived quite a few crashed (as well as the other one he had) as he learnt to fly it. Only time will tell how long it lasts from now. Overall a good product.

  Great wee toy !!

I bought this for my 9 year old son for christmas as a stocking filler and he LOVES it !!
Took him a few hours of practice to to get the hang of it ( including a lot of crashes which the helicopter survived unscathed ! ) - but once he did it is a superb little RC toy.

  Let Down. I expected more...

My bother brought me this for Christmas due to no other ideas on what to get me and it seemed like a perfect little gift that could provide some entertainment during the holidays.

Came all nicely packaged ect, seemed great. Got out of box, charged all worked fine and everything was great. From here on however it was disaster.

I followed through the small set of instructions on what to do when it just ends up spinning round and out of control. I was in a nice big open room and the most i could get it to do was either shoot off the foor, spin wildly up to the roof, and crash down again or using a slow start in an attempt to go up slowly and hover, it kind of leaned and fly sideways along the carpet and crashed into the wall at the side. Using the left and right steering seemed to do nothing at any stage except slow down the spinning or speed it up. After about 2 hours of crashing and getting very frustrated i gave up!

Would have rated one star, but i felt the need to give it some credit for such a small machine and the amount of times i crashed it was still working 'fine' with no damage ect. If you can work out how to fly it, then it would be great 5 star for such a great little buy. But for me, cant rate highly.

  Great little gadget!

Awesome bit of kit, just got one from my buddy for christmas, it's really robust, it's had loads of crashes and it's been fine!

Only thing I will say if you do crash the cockpit cover can come off its locating pin, if this happens pop it back on otherwise it will up set your balance, also look out for fluff on the tail rotor, the tiniest bit will make flying very hard!

Enjoy!

My son has one, flew great for a while then the small wires on the tail motor came loose. impossible to fix, very frustrating as it's perfect apart from the fact it will now only go up and down, not much use. Would not buy this type again, now looking for another for Christmas.

Great little toy, had it for a while and still works great, just remember to run the charge right down every so often before a re-charge. Biggest disapointment is that you cant specify the remote channel, so if you intend to order two to fly together, you are bound to be disapointed. I ended up with three of the same type before play told me they couldnt guarantee the channel for me!!

I bought this item and used it for the whole day when it arrived. However after a few crashes it started to go berserk and crash again. I don't even attempted to fly it anymore as it leads to further frustration!!! Great item if you have lots of space. Not really recommended!
