This review is from: Syma S107 Gyro Metal 3 CH Helicopter Yellow
Pros: Easy to fly
Cons: Long recharge time (typical for small rc helis)
Short range on controller (typical for IR)
Other Thoughts: This heli is great overall and I would certainly recommend to anyone that wants to try out an rc copter for the first time. I bought two of these for my kids (10 and 11) and they were able to fly them right away with minimal issue. After a little practice, they have no issues flying them around, landing them, navigating obstacle courses they've setup and stuff like that.
And these things are very durable. So much so, that the kids have figured this out and started having demolition derby wars with the copters, see who can make the other one's crash. So far, the only casualty was a snapped off tail fin. I was able to super glue this back on. It broke off again a few days later, due to rough play (again). This is not a functional piece, though. The helicopter flies exactly the same with or without the fin.
**If you do have two of these, make sure to connect the copters and the radios away from each other. Otherwise you'll get one controller flying both.
