real easy to use
on November 17, 2010
as mentioned costo has them for 34$
it is a really easy heli to fly with, its 3 channels so it cant move sideways, its 250 size and its heavy, makes it a really stable platform.
i own an e.flite micro 4 channel heli as well, and it is way more difficult to fly, and the slightest breeze will send it off course(almost impossible to use outside), because of the interceptors weight/size you can actually use it outside, although slight wind will push the heli easily, but that happens to all heli's but the bigger the better, but bigger also means more expensive to crash.
back to the interceptor
battery lasts 5-6 minutes and charges in 30 min which is quite good, battery cant be removed...so get two heli's instead :-)
is has some heavy metal parts, which can be lightened with a dremmel for a more responsive heli
the wing on the tailboom, can be removed to provide more forward speed, also if your heli's fly in circles and you cant adjust it on the remote, the wing on the middle of the tail boom can be angled slightly to fix this
rotor is easily bent, but since the heli is so stable it will rarely be a problem as you wont be crashing much
this is more of a toy than a hobby heli...meaning parts are hard to come by, and the agility is limited.....but that is to be expected at this price range
i find that i play with this heli alot more than my other more expensive ones, since its easy and inexpensive
