4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: This RC Helicopter worked great for a while. Until my kid had a crash landing. But before that happen it flew like a champ for about 20-30mins for flight time before the 1-2hr charge time. It was nice that it came with extra pieces. Over all it was fun while it lasted heh.

Cons: The only cons to this toy were off and on I would get interference between the toy and the controller. That's about it.

1 out of 5 eggspoor quality control

Pros: Looks cool with all the lights and design is neat. cheap price

Cons: You get what you pay for most of the time and this is no exception. It would only fly for about 30 seconds then it would only hover around about 1 inch off the ground. tried to cycle the battery server times to get more capacity but no changes. One of the gears kept moving away from the motor so it would require a repair to function at all. Seller has a bad reputation.

Other Thoughts: I would have done an RMA but this was bought for my son as a Christmas present and by the time he got it there was no option to RMA it. I've had other problems with this seller as well and had to RMA an RC quadcopter and never received my return. I had to send several emails and they finally issued a refund although I wanted a replacement. I will never buy from this store again. 2 products, both faulty with poor customer service.

1 out of 5 eggsnot so good

Pros: Looks great

Cons: Only flies for about 30 seconds then it would just hover around for a few minutes. very limited range.

Other Thoughts: Would have tried to RMA but it was an early purchase for my son's Christmas present so by the time he got it I couldn't RMA it. big let down for his showcase present.

4 out of 5 eggsFun

Pros: This little toy can get up and move...great power and responsiveness, especially compared to other store-bought models in the same price range. It will provide hours and hours of entertainment, assuming you are a decent pilot (one or two nasty crashes could take it out of commission). It is put together pretty well with durable metal frame and plastic accents and blades. Full range of motion best I have seen in this price range. I would not recommend flying it outside. The sun seems to interfere with the signal. Indoors, however, it is great (see Cons). Not worth $60, but look for sales in the $20-$30 range. Three channels make it easy to fly more than one at the same time without crossing signals.

Cons: It charges via the controller base which uses 6x AA batteries (No AC option to charge from a wall outlet). When the batteries drop below 2/3 capacity, it won't provide enough charge for the chopper (which means 6 more AA batteries). The sun's light interferes with the signal. Running this outside, the throttle sticks and sends your chopper into the sky until it is out of range and drops back to the ground. The powerful response can make controls a tiny bit squirrely (I ran it into my ceiling several times not being careful enough with the throttle. The throttle on this model is completely manual both up and down (other models have a spring-loaded throttle that drops all the way down if you let go of the controller).

5 out of 5 eggsRedemption! Works great!

Pros: Works perfect. Flys perfect. Easy to use. My 8 year old son was flying it perfect in less than five minutes. Its a blast and its addictive! I keep one in my office and use it for stress relief almost daily.

Cons: None at all

Other Thoughts: A few months ago I had purchased two military type RC choppers from Newegg - a Marketplace transaction and neither of them flew. So, I was a bit reluctant when I saw this come up for sale. However, I took a chance and couldnt be happier.

5 out of 5 eggsSeller made it right...

Pros: Seller replaced defective product... so now have extra, but that's okay as the copters are a LOT of fun. More than worth the $$$.

Cons: Previous review was in-frustration dealing with Newegg's site and making communication with seller difficult (no obvious way without complaint to initiate communication).

Cons: We used it for 5 minutes, then it broke with no control and the lower blades spin constantly.

4 out of 5 eggsFlies 7 minutes on 32 minute charge

Pros: Easy to fly, very linear throttle control for height adjustment.
I've flow this about 30 times now with over 50 crashes into a hardwood floor. Still flies reliably. It will do a timed 7 minute hover on a 32 minute charge (timed it twice after 30 flights). I love the headlights and flashing tail lights for flying in a dark room!

Cons: The left/right and forward/backward controls are not very linear, either on or off it seems. I suppose it's to be expected on a cheap helicopter. After about crash 40 it stopped backing up straight. I think I see a bent part on the tail boom that I need to straighten. At least it has a metal frame so I can fix it easily.
The manual is in "Engrish", hard to read.

Other Thoughts: It doesn't have a forward speed trim and slowly creeps forward in a hover. It doesn't distract from the fun. It's actually easier to fly that way when first learning because you don't have to hold the forward joystick on all the time. I might be able to move the landing skids backwards to re-balance it.

5 out of 5 eggsCoolest little chopper

Pros: Well built with a lipo for long flights. Cool lights all over it. metal frame. extra set of blades. gyro, usb charge cord included. Fun

Cons: Lipo battery which can be a hazard later on down the road. Not rubber made.

Other Thoughts: For the price this thing is awesome and I'd buy another
