This review is from: Syma Mini Chinook Cargo Transport 3CH RC Gyro Helicopter(S026)
Pros: tl;dr: it's durable.
I fly helicopters around my office to entertain (read: annoy) my coworkers. So one day they press me to fly it out the fifth story window of our office.
I resist. at first.
After a short flight around my desk, I steady the helicopter in front of an open window, consider several possibilities, and send it onward.
A wind gust immediately grabs hold, taking it straight up and sharply left, putting a solid brick wall between it and the infrared remote: connection severed; blackhawk down.
I sprint downstairs to find it, but a passerby has already picked it up. I don't even remember if I said 'thanks' as I dart back upstairs.
I switch it on. The rainbow LED offers some hope, but seriously, a 5 story fall?
With 20+ pairs of coworker eyes watching my every move, I flip on the remote. Eyes closed/deep breath. I hear the whine of the engine as the rotors start to spin, and to a symphony of cheers, we have liftoff!
Cons: Battery doesn't last as long as some other toy helicopters I have on my desk, but not terrible.
Other Thoughts: I'm also a big fan of the extra controls on the remote allowing for forward/aft trim and extra speed.READ FULL REVIEW
