3 out of 5 eggsGood for the money

Pros: -For the price, its fun.
-Does have full control.

Cons: -If spinning makes you sick, prepare to throw up.
-Trim control lets you stop the spinning, however the spinning can be caused by: First startup, increase or decrease in altitude, change in status from move forward to move back to hover, changes in battery level, etc.
-In other words, you will ALWAYS be having to retrim the helicopter. In the 15minute battery life, you will often spend 10 of that just hoving and trying to trim a spin away.

Other Thoughts: All those cons being said, I bought these on sale on Newegg for $20 and I would do it again. They are fun if you have the patience for regularly re-trimming.

3 out of 5 eggsOkay, durable

Pros: Price durability

Cons: Forward and backward motion very limited and boring. Forward accuracy of flight not stable.

1 out of 5 eggsnot much play value here

Pros: It looked like fun on the box / description.

Cons: Impossible to control with any accuracy, even if by some miracle you get stabilized, and hovering, don't expect to go anywhere.

Other Thoughts: Seems pretty durable so far, good thing, as it crashes a lot.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time/money

Pros: Stylish, realistic, compact and reasonably priced.

Cons: Out of the box, the chopper's tail motor is not working. It hovers in one spot. It has no ability to go forward/back .

Contacted the seller; expects me to pay for return shipping!

This is not good practice. I paid for a working unit. It's the seller's responsibility to give me a working unit!

For its part, Newegg has agreed to pay back the shipping charge.

Other Thoughts: I can not determine if the motor is blown or if it's not getting any power... in either case, it's quiet clear there is no quality assurance of any type in the factory. Avoid this product :(

Too bad, it looks really good.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective unit, won't charge

Pros: The helicopter looks to be better constructed than the styrofoam units from previous years. It flew - once, with the original battery charge and seemed to have better control than the other unit we have.

Cons: It flew once...we got a defective unit that does not charge off the controller - you plug it in but the helicopter does not charge.

Other Thoughts: Well, for $20 this would be a good enough deal for some in house fun, if you don't get a lemon like we did. The helicopter body is made of plastic and it is quite a bit heavier than the previous Air Hog we had so flight time might be less if the unit actually worked.

Provided I get a replacement unit without having to shell out as much in shipping as originally paid for it I'll bump up the rating on the review, otherwise it might have been cheaper to buy one locally and have a brick and mortar store to return it to for replacement.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty for for the sale price

Pros: -Does have all the controls. up down, yaw left and right, and moves forward and back.
-Simple to use and recharge. Everything worked right out of the box simple no need for the manual.
-Has a flashing red/blue led on the front, cool for night flying or dark rooms.
-For sure worth it at the sale price.

Cons: -It does have trim controls, so you *CAN* make it hover without spinning. However as SOON as you come out of a hover it will spin. This makes it virtually impossible to move forward or back.
-Even a 20 second flight is basically a steady progress of losing more and more control until it crashes.
-The only effective way to trim it is to hover it and adjust trim while you do. However if it's not trimmed, getting it off the ground without crashing is also difficult. This early process nerfs the fun somewhat.

Other Thoughts: Don't get me wrong. For the 20 it cost on sale, it was worth it. It's fun. But so far it's almost impossible to fly. Altititude control is tight but attempting to move forward is near impossible because it will just start spinning.
