I got this helicopter at christmas and it was quality for the first day, however after many crashes it could no longer fly properly. This led to more crashes which put the chopper out of action. It's now been decomissioned as it no longer works.

OK
If you're bored of your helicopter from simply hovering - here's a tip ... stick a little bit of bluetac on the front, just under the nose ... it'll then tip forward and this is how it gathers speed and moves forwards, rather than simply going upwards.
ALSO, if you're having trouble stopping it spinning, it's absolutely IMPORTANT that you TAP the trim control several times until you get it out of a spin... don't HOLD it down, as this will cause it to over-trim and start spinning the other way.
FINALLY, the controls ... you need to ease it into things ... dont go pressing full left / right or up ... ease it into going upwards ... then turn it left/right just enough to get it moving in that direction - pressing left/right fully will not help you.
Following this advice I got mine flying pretty well, especially outdoors in NO wind - it's made of polystyrene! Of course the wind will push it out control!

Iv had this product only one day and so far it has been the best £12.99 i have spent in a long time! It flies up, down and spins left, right. What more do you want for the £12.99? This heli is very durable although so far i have broken it a little bit and that is why i marked it down a star. Great product! Well worth the money! Good job Play!

  do not buy this item (rip off)

i bought it on thursday 4 days later it arrived first time i went on it i didnt expect it to be brilliant i was good for at least 2-3 flights and then it started to keep spinning and hovering around then when i went to charge it fully i went to fly it again and it totally screwed it up so i am just giving you tips not to buy this product!

  lots of fun

it generally flys quiet well, until you hit any thing and it spins madly out of control. it took a while to get use to it but even then it just hovered a few feet the span out. it sometime flew good and it was really fun it turned smoothly and went about 12 foot high but most of the time you have to keep fiddling with the counter spin which dosent really help as the thing hurdles towards your face.
overall if you can get it to work properly it well worth the money and lots of fun. enjoy

  Is this a joke?

| | See all Bridges's reviews (2)

is this actually a joke. It didnt once go off the ground just basically spun in circles for about 5 minutes then i followed all the troubleshoots and they had no affect on the spinning at all. a product that i would not reccomend

  Fantastic little helicopter

Ok

Fantastic little helicopter, little bit of practice and you can have this flying around you living room.
Tips: hit the trim button fast when you first start to fly you may have to hit it 10 or more time to stabilise the helicopter.
Do not push the controls to much, when you go into a turn give the throttle a little more power.
Found it best launched by hand but with a little practice you can take off from the floor or table.
This is really an indoor helicopter as sunlight interferes with the infrared and also the wind.
Great fun and I am no kid.

Oh!! Great service from Play.com 10/10
