Did not work
on 3 July 2014
Unfortunately I had to send back. The helicopter and the remote controller would not communicate and I couldn't find any way of re-tuning or changing channel to try and make them talk. However, when I tried searching for advice online, I've stumbled upon reports of similar problems in American Amazon's reviews, so it is possible that there is a batch of those helicopters with a faulty radio receiver for example.
It's a bit disappointing when you consider the price and otherwise fantastic reviews.
I'm not advising against the purchase since, if you're lucky enough to get a fully working model, I'm sure you'll have heaps of fun with it, but if you need it for a present, I would definitely recommend buying it with an extra margin of time, so you have a chance to test it and, if necessary, get another one.
Since the seller, I got mine from, did not offer a replacement (their stock is apparently quite fluid so they can't guarantee they'd have another one at the time to replace it with) I had to send it back for a refund and, to be honest, I can't be bothered now to wait for my money to be credited back, then order another helicopter and then wait again for the delivery.
