The helicopter itself is very durable.
Albo5000
Within the first 3 minutes of flying it, it crashed to the ground and key pieces broke, making it completely unusable.
Mom of 4
Everything spins and we can make it turn left and right on the ground but it will not go up in the air.

My husband, Bill, was a helicopter pilot, who flew in Vietnam and on the Delaware State Police. Although he's retired now, he still has great memories from his flying days. When I saw the HELO TC remote-controlled helicopter being promoted online, I immediately asked for one to review. I wanted my husband to try it and see if he would recommend it. He does, and so do I! I found it to be just as much fun as he does!

Here's our take on the product:

1. It's small (about 8" long), lightweight (1.4 oz - I weighed it on my Weight Watcher's scale!), and takes up very little room to store or to use. We can "fly" in the house, as long as the dog is shut up in her crate!

2. It's flexible. We've had several crashes, but no damage. It's built on a lightweight metal frame with a black polycarbonate body, and it bounces very well!

3. It's fairly easy to learn to use. I say fairly because you have to run the throttle as well as the joystick at the same time. It gets tricky, but my pilot husband had it flying around the room in no time at all. For me, it took a bit longer to learn the controls. (There is another mode - Tilt to Steer - that just uses the iPhone, but it's not nearly as fun and challenging.) My only complaint is that the directions for flying the HELO TC are in the app itself and not written in the paperwork that comes with it. It's not fun to have to stop the HELO TC to read directions. I suggest they add these directions in PDF format to their website to be downloaded.

4. It was easy to put together and start playing. Our HELO came already charged (It charges with USB power source.); however, the literature says it charges in 35 minutes. The Flight Deck module is powered by four AAA batteries.

I bought a Helo TC a couple of weeks ago and I have had a blast! I am still working on my skills but they just came out with an app update that has a novice setting which has helped. The app has several functions including auto-land and flight plans but the flight plans won't do me good until I get better at controlling it. I wish the battery lasted longer but in a gadget that size I can see why it doesn't. I've learned that the battery lasts longer if I turn off the lights.

The Helo TC was great playing with for the first few days, But after a day it was ruined, pieces missing and now it won't fly because it is not balanced. It really was a lot of fun before it broke but looking back, it was kind of a waste of $50...

I bought this at my local Verizon store during Xmas since it seemed like a great little novelty. I got it home and couldn't get it to do anything when connected to my Galaxy Note 2. I then tried my old HTC EVO 4G and it didn't work with it either.

Getting frustrated I went to the Griffin website and to my dismay, all the i devices are supported but only about a half dozen of Android phones are compatible. Needless to say I wasn't happy especially since the S3 is supported and the Note 2 isn't that much different. Fortunately my wife has an S3 so I borrowed it and low and behold it took off and zoomed all over. Finally got to use it!

As for the fragility of the pieces....Well for devices like this you need to expect that they're going to break, especially if you're hitting walls and tables with it. I've been fortunate thus far and have hit the ceiling numerous times the floor, wall, myself.

It does take some time to get the hang of it. The controls are extremely sensitive so if you're in a small place you need only enough lift to get it off the ground which for me is at about a 1/4 of the learner throttle.

I've already bought a 2nd set of blades for it but now I wish that I could just by a controller for it since it's not compatible with my phone. All in all I gave it 4 stars because I think its a great little adult toy that can really help we with dexterity and hand/eye coordination. It's a lot of fun to have it hover and then ever so slightly move the joystick and watch it turn. Love it.

All in all, as long as you know what you're getting into with it, it's a lot of fun.

I bought this for my boyfriend, who loves R/C toys, and he flipped. He loves the Helo Tc Helicopter! He generally breaks the R/Cs within a day or two. So far it is all in one piece and he is getting such a kick out of this! If your guy (or girl) loves R/C toys this is awesome!

My wife bought me these for pre christmas cause ive wanted something like this for a while... I love it
I can see where the bad reviews came from as its not as easy as havoc helis to fly but once you get the hang of slowly increasing the throttle instead of jamming it up it works great. Also i do feel the half second lag between controls and chopper but if you have the throttle under control and learn to just have it hover in front of you first before thinking you can fly with the pros but it is very easy to adapt to this little lag problem
Also the battery charges in only about thirty minutes which is quick lasts only about five to ten minutes but thats not bad
Overall im happy
Will try a couple brands to compare but so far im impressed with this
