It takes a little practice to get the hang of flying this Millenium Falcon. That said - take the time to learn to fly it. By 4:00 in the afternoon on Christmas day, myself, my 10 year-old son AND my 5 year-old daughter could fly this with little problem. It will still get wobbly at times, crash into the wall, or land hard - but it's a toy, not a profession RC helicopter. As I said, my 5 year-old can fly it now - it's very learnable.
Here are the two biggest tips I can give you. First, don't try and launch it from the floor. It takes it a second to get it's equilibrium, and taking off from a sitting position will results in far more uncontrolled crashes. Instead, hold it lightly by the nose, engage the rotors, and let it lift off from your hand. Once we figured this out, we almost never crashed on take-off. Second, don't worry about the trim. As another reviewer said, we use the left/right control to control it. Granted, you can't fly a living room obstacle course and make a perfect landing on the fireplace mantle, but as I said before - THIS IS TOY, not a professional RC helicopter. Have fun with it.
The body of the toy is flimsy styrofoam, otherwise known as packing material; a fingernail damages it. Charging the internal battery of the flyer is accomplished by plugging in a short (too short) cable permanently attached to the control handset. This means that the act of merely plugging in the cable stresses the styrofoam body housing the motor; don't expect to be able to do this too many times before the connector tears loose or the foam gives way. The charging cable is so short that the flyer can't sit level on any surface while it's plugged in; and because it won't sit level, the plug does not tend to maintain a good connection. Meanwhile, because it's not sitting level, the thin plastic struts holding the motor housing to the body are stressed.
The internal battery must charge from the control handset. That means you're using the AA batteries in the handset to charge the flyer, thus requiring you to replace the batteries sooner, an operation involving a very small Phillips-head screwdriver.
In the only credible favorable review posted here, Daimion "thewordzombie" gets at least one thing right: the only way to launch this toy is by holding its nose lightly in your hand while you carefully engage the rotors. This means that it takes two people to fly it, as the controls CANNOT be manipulated "carefully" with one hand. The person holding the flyer must back away very carefully, as ANY air disturbance close to it will cause it to lose control.Read more ›

It takes a little use to to learn to fly! After about 2 days I was able to fly this drone. If you fly it outside make sure there is no wind. This dron does NOT like wind! Read morePublished 4 months ago by andre jitta
Cool because it's the Millennium Falcon. It's made of a cheap foam material, difficult to fly/control, and expensive.Published 17 months ago by AVBeans

Difficult to balance. Have to recalibrate every time you start it. I just cut off the right cockpit to solve the annoying problem.Published 18 months ago by ohmclue
This was a wedding gift for the groom of my niece, who is a diehard Star Wars fan. It was intended not as just a fun toy, which it was, but for the grooms cake. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Kellykid8
This toy has to much weight on one side causing imbalance and not able to fly. It's nothing more than styrofoam, cheap and fragile, not worth the money.Published 21 months ago by Sherry Mares
