This was a christmas present and looked very impressive. Having been charged fully the helicopter was switched on and immediately flew up to the ceiling. It then fell to floor and has not performed properly since this first use.
The remote range is a distance of six inches to rear of copter, and this means we have never been able to make it fly as expected.
We purchased a replacement at a local store which hovers, flies and operates at a distance of 8-10 foot from the transmitter.
We still have the copter purchased but on our experience can not recommend that it is a good buy. The unpredicted start and extremely small operating range make it totally unusable for anything other than spares for the second copter purchased.
It proved to be a very disapointing purchase.
