Would recommend!, 29 Dec. 2010
I bought this for my Dad for christmas as he has wanted one for quite some time. At £14.99 (plus p+p) it was a good price and had good reviews. We recieved a silver helicopter with purple detail and when the helicopter is being flown, the lights flash which looks really impressive! My Dad isn't the most gifted with picking things up quickly, but this little helicopter is so stable - even my Dad could fly it. He's so impressed by it, that he wants to purchase another so that he's got one, whilst the other is on charge.
Hearing from a friend who had a bigger r/c helicopter for christmas which cost £60, and seeing the difference, this one is so much more stable and has a much shorter charge time.
This might be overwhelmingly obvious but I had to think it through... you can choose to charge from either the controller or the usb port into a computer. It is much more efficient to charge through the USB cable otherwise it'll just drain the 6 AA batteries (which are not included) in the controller.
With it being so small, it looks fragile but it has taken a few bumps and knocks and it hasn't yet complained! A hair did get tangled up in the motor but it was easy to pull out. So as long as care is taken, the heli is pretty sturdy and practical.
Overall, if you're looking for a fun, stable r/c helicopter then I would highly recommend this!
