This is a great little copter and although I was sceptical at first, I bought one anyway and I'm so glad I did! It's a lot easier to fly than the r/c aircraft and as you can fly it indoors it doesnt get away from you. I found that it says 5-6 mins flight time but I get at least 10, while the manual says it takes 30 mins to charge and it only takes 15-20!
I got the hang of the controls after about 5 mins and although it does need occasional touches to the trim to keep it stable, I was flying it around my flat in no time. Flying over chairs, round obstacles and landing on coffe tables suddenly became tricky but very rewarding challenges, I'm really hooked on this thing! Even my 11 year old sister was flying it round the house with confidence after just 5-10 mins with it!
It's also worth mentioning the aircaft is incredibally stable in the air and can withstand a lot of punishment. Mine has taken a pasting and is still flying perfectly. It is however very light and so probably wouldnt fly well outside unless there is literally no wind at all, but it's great for indoor flight. You need copius amounts of space indoors, and once you get used to the controls you'll be negotiating rooms, corridors and stairs like a pro! You even get little sticky weight strips that you can apply to the nose to ive it a bit more forward motion. I only opted for the Apache version as I liked the livery, but I would thoroughly reccommend this spritely little chopper to anyone, espesially aviation enthusiasts, as it really is a great deal of fun. Speaking of which, mine's just charged again, so I'm off to have another go now!!
