So far after almost 2 weeks of daily flying it has suffered several bumps but no damage.
Recharged in 20 minutes.
I would definitely recommend for ages 8 and upwards.
I ordered one before and the remote didn't work. I sent it back and got a replacement. Same problem.
I tried rechargeable and alkaline batteries but still couldn't get it to work. I noticed the batteries weren't making contact with the metal at the ends so I used tin foil to fill in the gap.
Works great now. No more fiddling about.
I've uploaded a picture to the Amazon pictures gallery for the remote control unit.
Hope this helps.
They are fairly robust but accidents do happen and sooner or later something might break but luckily you can buy parts relatively cheaply so I'd say its worth buying a replacement parts set in advance of any mishaps.
My husband has already had to replace a fixing on the main shaft - which was rather fiddly and required a very fine screwdriver but he eventually managed it with the help of a Youtube 'how to...' video clip.
Having read the many reviews I ordered this item for a friends birthday. On arrival, in plenty of time, I checked it out prior to wrapping it up and discovered the controller to have a fault. On close examination, I discovered the fault to be in the battery department, and another reviewer fixed this with tin foil. (He has also submitted a photo) This is a gift so cannot implement this repair and Amazon are unable to send a replacement controller so will have to order another item. My only fear is, if this is a common problem, may end up with another faulty controller.
Amazon response and service a full 5 stars.
UPDATE 19 January 2013
I ended up giving my friend the money for his birthday and he went out and purchased one of these helicopters from Amazon himself. I've seen the helicopter fly and is quite amazing for such a small sum of money. He gets around 6 minutes flying on a full charge and I would recommend it to anyone, adults too! Just remember to let the battery cool down for 10 minutes before charging and don't overcharge the battery and I'm sure you will have endless fun. Just one final word, buy from a good company, Amazon or similar, who will look after you should there be a problem.
