4.5 Disappointed Lauren17 | 15/09/2007 | See all Lauren17's reviews (1) After reading all the negative reviews about the charger blowing up, i thought i'd go ahead and get it anyway. The helicopter flying was quite fun but that was off the already charged battery. I went to charge it up when the rotor started slowing, and plugging the plug into the socket, it blew up. Smoke was coming out of the plug! Spend an extra tenner and get one of the better ones!
