5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Packed Flying 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had the first version Lightspeed iHelicopter and loved it, but the camera on this latest
version is a real laugh.

The helicopter is very stable as it has an on board gyroscope and with a bit of practice
you can keep it in the air for many minutes and do some fun turns and stuff.

Controlling it with my iPhone is very cool indeed, and I personally think the "motion control", where
you tilt the phone to move the helicopter in that direction is the easiest way and most fun.

I like the fact that it includes everything required in the pack (so no need for batteries), and the
instruction manual is well written and easy to follow.

The 2GB included SD card, you just slot in the back of the helicopter undercarriage to and it
records the video or still camera shots onto it.

One bit of advice - when you plug the included card reader into your computer to move the
recordings to it, make sure you download a free video player called "VLC video player" as
this will make sure you do not have any codec problems playing the video. So after
getting the clip on to your computer just right click it and select "play with VLC video player".

If you have half the fun I had with this it will be money well spent. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fun. Worth every penny 28 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
I had the original Lightspeed ihelicopter, and when I saw this latest model with camera could not resist. Happy to report it was 40 well spent, and so much fun that 2 other people in the office ordered them so we now have 3 of the helicopter with camera models buzzing around the office whenever the boss is away!

The helicopter itself is the same as the original Lightspeed, so it flies very well and can be controlled in all directions using the free App. I have to say my preference is to use motion control, which is where you tilt the phone to control the direction of the helicopter. There are 2 buttons at the top of the Copter Controller App – One for taking snapshot photos and one for videos.

It's nice to have the 2GB free SD card included, as I did see another model on Amazon that only had a 512MB, so with this one you get to take around an hour of video on the card.

Overall it was easy to capture video and then play it on my computer, but its definitely worth following the advice in the email you get from the seller after purchase that says to download a the free VLC MEDIA PLAYER, as it plays the video way better than the standard windows player.

Things that are cool:

-Seeing people reaction caught on camera as you fly it around them
-Snapshots photos-Helicopter easy to control thanks to gyroscope
-App works well on my iPad and Samsung Galaxy
-I got around 7 mins flight time per charge
-Spares seem readily available and some were included in the box
-Everything required was included so no need to spend a few extra quid on batteries
-Like the fact 3 cam be flown at the same time. Lots of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boyfriend loved it 24 Sep 2013
By Bullen
Verified Purchase
I've bought similar helicopters before and they all seem to break too quickly. This one is sturdy (AND comes with spare parts!), my boyfriend has accidently crashed it several times and still not a scratch (he's had it for almost two months now). The camera is great too and I especially love that it uses an SD card (included, thank you very much) so I don't have to connect the camera to the computer and then download some special program to watch the video.

I'm very happy with this and so is my boyfriend!

3.0 out of 5 stars Sounds Good 17 Jan 2014
By Babsie
Verified Purchase
Helicopter and camera are a good idea and fun to play with unfortunately the power does not last very long. Have to keep charging it up just as my husband is getting the hang of flying it. He is not impressed with it for the price. Would not recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fun. Defentially worth every penny 26 Dec 2013
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
OVERVIEW:
First of I want to say that this product is, as they say 'great bang for your buck'. It may be hard to fly at first if your a novice (like me), but once you can fly it it is a lot of fun.

THE HELICOPTER:
The helicopter is extremely durable, surviving many scrapes and crashes. I'm surprised it hasn't broken yet. It is quite fast without the 'turbo' option, but seeing as I haven't tried that option yet I can't comment. The camera is good as well, it is only good because it is 480p and not 720p, probably to keep the size of the helicopter down. The size of the helicopter is brilliant, it isn't too small nor too big, it fits perfectly on my desk which is useful, it can also fly through 'not too small gaps', while being big-enough too no loose it.

PROS:
Small
Lightweight
Fast
Durable
Cheap
Comes with spare parts

CONS:
Camera is 480p
May be hard to control for some people
Might receive a faulty transmitter like I did, so have to have it plugged into phone and the cable plugged in for it to charge

VERDICT:
Great features for the price. Extremely fun to fly, and to crash. Kids and grown-ups will love it. 5/5*
