my husband loves this Christmas present and has spent hours fiddling with it. He says it is a great little item and not hard to fly once you get the hang of it. It is also quite sturdy as it has crashed several times but is still unharmed. The only thing that could be improved is the flying time per charge is short but can only be expected due to the small size of the helicopter. Not flown it outside as yet so can only comment on its performance indoors.
