4 out of 5 eggsEats batteries

Pros: Inexpensive and a lot of fun (though challenging) to fly.
The electronic parts are worth $20 alone.


This thing eats batteries. When charging the copter, it consumes over 300ma from the 6 AA batteries. The SOLUTION is to use a walwart!! I opened up the hand unit and installed a 1/8" female earphone jack, then connected that to a LM7809 (9v voltage regulator) and soldered its output across the battery compartment. Now I can use an external power supply 9-12V and not hurt the electronics. PLUS I can use rechargeable batteries if I need to go portable, but this is an INDOOR only toy so plugging into a wall socket is no big deal. Flight time is short but the power is not a problem anymore. This would cost a small fortune if you had to replace batteries all the time.

Other Thoughts: Made in China. Wish it were USA. We don't make much of anything here anymore. :-(
