NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE, 30 Dec. 2010
Bought for my nephew's Xmas present. He has a lot of experience with flying RC helicopters, I have none. In the 10mins I spent catching up I crashed it once, it dropped onto thick carpet, causing the main rotor blade to shear. Resulting in many apologies and one disappointed nephew. I felt less guilty but more like I was conned when the second helicopter's main rotor blade sheared off in the exact same position 10 minutes later. Of all the different brands/models of RC helicopters my nephew has owned over the years these are worse in terms of durability, in fact, I would go so far as to say they are not fit purpose - major design fault. TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.
