All new Double Horse 9118 is an amazing 737mm (29 inch) long, metal-framed gyro helicopter. A great-looking outdoor helicopter with fantastic handling control and stability provided by the latest gyro technology. You can control it in 3 directions, up/down, left/right, forward/reverse, and the gyro gives it great stability and very precise rotational movement for really accurate steering.

The sheer size of the helicopter means it is ideal for outdoor use, and it has an impressive range of up to 60m (200ft), including 100m(300ft) straight up in the air! This fantastic helicopter is the ultimate boys toy, which is on the impressive scale of many of the 4 and 6 channel helicopters, but with the ease of flying associated with the smaller 3 channel helicopters. However this also has the added bonus of gyro stability and control.

Controlled by a high quality radio control transmitter, and powered by a 7.4v Li-Poly battery, the 9118 comes with a wall charger, and will fly for around 8-10 minutes from a single charge. The transmitter requires 8 x AA batteries, not supplied. This comes ready to fly, just charge it up and put batteries in the transmitter and you're off on the adventure of a lifetime!

3 out of 5 eggsAlot of Mods to make this thing fly

Pros: Takes alot of beatings, Tons of replacement parts avaliable, Gyro, 2.4ghz RC, very easy to fix.

Cons: First off, you have to mod this helo before you even bother to fly it the first time. If you do, you are in for a major headache. I knew this before I bought it. I did research to find an affordable helo to tinker with. first you must increase the distance between the A and B blades, increase the size of the rear rotor blades or you will not be able to move forward or backwards in the slightest of wind. replace the rear tail motor with a bigger one... think the one I used was from a 9104 for $1.00 from Japan. must buy a lipo battery. the Lithium Ion it comes with gives you only a few good charge and its done. If you are smart get a larger size one like a 25C 2200mah battery or even a 30C if you want. The larger size will help shift the CG forward to help it move forward during winds. If you get a bigger battery you must drill some holes in the canopy to help cool your circuit board. Also when you do increase the rotor size you must cut the useless vert stabs to give the rotors clearance. To do all these mods and if you are a first timer... just youtube it. As a warning the directions isnt the best thing on the planet.

Other Thoughts: Its a fun toy to play with after the mods and great to learn before you move onto the next lvl. Its cheap now... got mine from a different site for $35. MUST DO THE MODS BEFORE FIRST FLIGHT!!! Also order tons of replacement parts if you do not know how to fly a helo. This thing is really easy to fix. I have spent $60+ plus the helo and mods and have alot of replacement parts left over for the future. Also when you go out to fly it... make sure you turn on the Helo first then move back and turn on the controller or it will not sync up. If you can not find alot of replacement parts by searching it as 9118... its the same as a 9053 double horse.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: None
Although Newegg has been excellent in the past, I think this is just a case of a bad outside vendor/poor quality control by the manufacturer.

Cons: I can't believe anyone would ship something in just the product packaging alone!! It looked like something that you would find at a garage sale. The ends were taped closed, I almost think it was shipped that way to hide the fact that this was a re-pack, or reconditioned. I firmly believe that it was repacked, the instruction book was jammed into the end of the box, it has a nice crease on it like it was just opened up and hastily put into the box.

To add more of an insult the charger is for European power!!! As it was shipped this product is completely un useable. You couldn't even charge the battery.

I would have to find a box to ship it back in because the product box is so deteriorated it would not survive the return trip. Absolutely amazing!!!!

Other Thoughts: I bought the same exact model from another online place, that one arrived well packaged but the battery in that unit would not charge. Also the remote control lever was broken for the throttle.

I bought an after market battery online and got the other Copter going. The one I bought from New Egg powered up and responded to the remote, so I am going to try and charge it with the other Copter's charger and see what happens.

I am thinking I might just keep it for spare parts, by the time I ship it back/buy a box etc.. it will be half the price of the product. I am very disappointed, but also glad that I didn't direct ship this to my Grandson for his birthday.
