3.0 out of 5 stars ? faulty batch, 6 Jan 2011
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Remote Controlled Infra red Micro Helicopter - Gyro Flyer (3 Channel) (Toy)
As previous reviewers have commented - the model I was supplied with is different to the one in the picture. The stabilising bar is now inbetween the blades and extremely flimsy. As a result after one flight the bar started to clip the lower blades and the flyer is unflyable. I contacted the seller (not Amazon) who admitted that they have had lots of customers contacting them with similar issues. My friend has a previous model with stabilising bar above the blades and this flies perfectly. Do Not Buy until they change the model.

UPDATE - I have now managed to get one of the older models where the balancing bar is above the blades. This new model appears to much more durable. It flys very well and is great to control. I think its great. I would give the old model 5 stars and the new model 1 star - as it appears to be hit and miss which model people will receive I have gone for 3 stars overall

I also have one of those with a faulty stabiliser bar attachment and am returning it.
I'm not happy to accept a replacement as I would assume it will be the same as the one I am returning.
How does one get an older model?

I basically emailed ThumbsUp Uk who make/import the helicopter and asked them how. I eventually got one direct from them

I also have one of the older models which has the stabiliser bar at the top and it is fantastic, I've had a few minor crashes but everything still works fine 5*
