I love it, good value per money, so far so good!
on 29 November 2010
I just bought this helicopter (not from Amazon) and I love it!
I have some other electric helicopters 4chs, 6chs, 2D, 3D; but this is the most easy and stable to fly!
With just 01 finger it will fly up and down, and stay hovering without any changing of its position and with no need to do any correction! Then, if you use the right stick to forward, backward, right and left turns, you can fly it anywhere in your leaving room.
My children love to "catch" it with their hands and release it after. It is very safe and if it hit them, it wont harm them.
The battery is good to fly around 9 to 11 minutes and it will take some 50 minutes to get a full charge. That's why it got just 4 stars, because you have to wait 50 minutes of charging to have 10min of fun.
The idea of recharging the helicopter on its own remote control is very good, because of the portability and it doesn't really drains too much of the remote's batteries at all. I've been flying for 03 days with the same cheap branded alkaline batteries with no sign of lowering them. Anyway when they finish, I'll replace them for normal rechargeable batteries.
It is very durable as well. I've had a few crashes and drops. My children under 6, are always catching the helicopter with no care at all and it still survives! Nothing broke down yet and it keeps flying beautiful.(just luck I suppose)
The price if very good and, if it happens to break or stop to work, it would not be a great loss.(if compared to the other ones that are more expensive and breaks easily)
The USB cable for charging the helicopter separately, is also a good idea, if you want to save your remote's batteries but, trust me it is not really necessary, once the remote's batteries will last for a long time on alkalines, and if you go for rechargeables, even better.
So far so good, it is still flying beautifully and resisting the crashes and the "children". What else do you expect?
IT MUST BE A MATTER OF LUCK...
THE 1RST ONE THAT I GOT WAS SPOTLESS AS MENTIONED ABOVE BUT, WHEN I OREDERED A 2ND ONE, I HAD TO REPLACE IT ONCE AND REQUEST A REFUND AFTER THE REPLACEMENT BEEING FAULTY TOO!!!
IS IT A MATTER OF LUCK OR THE QUALLITY OF THE S107 IS DECREASING?
