5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value, Stable Flight

Pros: Easy to fly, good flight lengths, lights are bright and look cool without being overly kiddish. Controls are responsive, and a little practice will have it hovering easily. Sturdy construction seems near indestructible. Occasional falls from 8 feet or so cause no appreciable damage. Take off is easy, and it feels powerful especially for its size.

Cons: Lights are bright, probably wasting some battery power. Trim controls on the remote are digital, making it hard to tell how it's set. Throttle level is spring loaded to default to 0, which is nice at first but quickly proves to be a hindrance. The instructions manual is poorly translated from Chinese, and it shows. However, being well illustrated you can get what information you need out of it without reading the garbled text.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a fantastic helicopter. I have not tried it outside yet, but I suspect it would be easily carried by the wind. Controls feel solid, and it hovers easily without spinning once the trim is set. You would be hard pressed to find a better helicopter in this price range.

5 out of 5 eggsFun fun fun...

Pros: This little heli is so much fun... though, I'll admit, I have not flown it much yet.
It is so much easier to control than those mosquito sized heli's.

Cons: Can't do a barrel roll. ;-)

Other Thoughts: It's just cool, and seems great for the price point that most places have this model at.
The dog likes to attack the unit just as it's lifting off the ground... I know he's just playing, but with how fast the blades turn... makes me a bit nervous. As long as he doesn't get hurt, it can be entertaining... that is until he destroys the unit like a mini Godzilla. :-o (finger's crossed)
