Customer Reviews

Sending it back for a refund, debating whether to order another one.
The DH 9053 is very stable and fun, the controls are great and easy to learn (master them is another thing!)
You cannot fly this outside unless there is no wind at all, not even the slightest bit.

Ok I did not buy this on Amazon, I got it at a local expo show and paid a little more but it is the same heli. This is a very nice helicopter and despite other reviews seems to be very durable. To give an example I have crashed numerous times, including into the ground, into a tree, a telephone pole, a steel automotive lift (the things that lift cars in mechanic shops), while I have a few dents and dings in the rotors they are still solid and it still flies. The balance bar bent as well but I just bent it back and all is well. I would call that pretty good considering some of the more high dollar helis like my friend has the rotor will shatter upon contact with a solid surface.

There is a learning curve to flying this. Just because it is a gyro copter, dont think that you can just take it out and fly with out crashing. I had a hard time getting off the ground for the first day, ground effect came in and made it go left every time. After some practice and messing with the trim tabs on day 2 I got really good at it. It is affected by wind but ALL helicopters are. This is to include real helicopters. Not something I generally bring up but in this case it might help, I use to be on a flight line with the AH-64A and AH-64D on a regular basis, I also worked on the guidance systems and weapons. Wind has a dramatic affect on a large heli so small winds can and will knock an RC to the ground. To start learning either do it on a day with no wind or find a gym/auditorium to start.

Battery time is not bad, I get about 15 minutes per charge, it takes about 2.5 hrs to recharge the battery. I just ordered 5 more batteries here on amazon so that I can get about an hour or more of play time before having to wait on a charge.

For the price, you actually get a pretty decent piece of hardware. That being said, there are a few modifications I would make before use. It says ready to fly on the box, and fly it will... how well is definitely open to debate. The first thing is to remove the canopy, loosen the battery, and slide it most of the way forward, then tighten the mounting bracket down again. This will move the center of gravity forward. This is necessary because without doing this, you literally cannot fly forwards. Other mods to increase maneuverability are to shorten the tail boom, slide the landing skids forward (easy), and replace the rear tail rotor with one of these: [...]
After replacing the rear rotor you will have to move the rear stabilizers up on the boom to make room for the larger blades.
Another mod that helps a lot is to replace the battery with a larger one, like a 15c 7.4v 3000mah. This also improves the flight characteristics by increasing weight in the nose, and over all (less likely to be batted about by the wind)
Make sure to buy a full set of replacement parts. You will need them... the helicopter is tough, dont get be wrong (I have crashed from 40+ feet with little to no damage) but there are breakable parts like the blade holders. (they are cheap, buy a hand full)
And here is a link to a forum which has a lot of good info about how to make this good little chopper a great one. For the price, its really a great deal.

A lot of people seem to knock this helicopter because they don't ever want to work on it. That's part of the hobby... Improving and repairing the equipment. Its not all that complex, and the parts are CHEAP, which is a boon. There are many 'hobby grade' helicopters out there you could spend a lot more money on that probably fly better etc... but the cost of maintainability goes WAY up. Consider that for an initial investment of ~$60 its quite a hoot.

I agree with some of the things the previous reviewer said, but I think the product deserves more than one star.For the size (it's big) it could've been better.You need to have some experience with helicopters, otherwise you are going to crash it.It's stable alright, but not that stable for a beginner. I was looking for a stable platform that can hover enough to take pictures or short clips.I haven't yet attached any equipment but my guess is the heli can take an extra 30-50 grams easily.
It is powered by 2 cheap 370 stock motors and in spite of the metal body, almost all other parts are plastic. It can take small hits, but a serious crash will damage the helicopter to the point it will become unflyable. Built in gyro seems to be working fine, but I have a vibration into frame at different rpm.(My guess is the fly bar which is easily bendable). I will update my review as I will add more flying time, that's if I don't brake it first.
The transmitter is a cheap 27Mhz (mostly used for cars) and I cannot trust it.
If this was a 2.4 Ghz tx/tx I wouldn't feel sorry for the money.
On a positive note, I like it better than my Walkera 4# Metal Edition.
I really appreciate how the seller handled my order, I received it in a couple of days.
This machine has serious issues with the tx/rx. Sometimes is not responding to inputs or sometimes it's taking more than 1-2 seconds to respond.This is very dangerous and the manufacturer should fix this right the way.This can lead to serious injuries and NOT by the fault of user.Buyer, be aware.Having a bad transmitter receiver is intolerable for a 26 inch helicopter!!!! In my initial review, I gave the product 3 stars, i'm now rating it to 2 for the sake of airframe.
