Very stable if you get it aligned right
Good range (flown over 100 ft in altitude)
Spare batteries reasonably priced
Manual written in Engrish (I'm sure it's better in the original Esperanto)
Connectors are hard to separate
Cannot see receiver board LEDs easily (not necessary but would be nice)
Makes me wish I'd gotten one with a camera
I've had this beauty only a couple of days. I was beginning to despair a bit after the first couple of flights - it seemed like I'd never be able to get it to hover, let alone fly it in a controlled manner. Finally I hit on a reliable startup sequence:
1) Turn off transmitter
2) Connect battery on helicopter
3) Insert battery into carrier, making sure it's centered (somewhat tolerant of misalignment, but get it as close as you can)
4) Tuck extra wire out of the way
5) Set on flat surface, don't touch until (8)
6) Set throttle to zero and turn on transmitter
7) Advance throttle to 100% and return to zero within a second or so
8) Transmitter will beep three times in an escalating sequence and the helicopter's headlight will come on
9) Go fly
I've found it easier to hand launch than to have it take off from the floor. Hold the helicopter by the corners of the battery in your right hand, orienting the orange props away from you, and the transmitter in your left. Advance the throttle to where it feels like it's starting to pull a little. Tilt the orange props away from you a bit and release, moving your hand down as you do so. Don't toss it, just let it fly out of your fingers.Read more ›
It's stable even in a bit of a breeze, and confuses the heck out of the birds in the back yard. I've done a few 360-degree flips with the button on the controller. I'm certainly doomed to purchase larger and more powerful models sooner rather than later, but I still have a long way to go before I max out this aircraft.
Also, learning to fly this at age 54 is healthy for the brain, and provides a refreshing shift of gears from other parts of life.
I would buy this exact unit again in a heartbeat.
I love it! It has inherently better design to prevent the problems the Estes Dart suffered, with motor bottoms reinforced to prevent breakage from a crash. I have crashed it a few times that scared me, but it seems to still be going fine. Also, the body has plastic rotor shields built into it, making it much more forgiving for flying indoors or out, especially for any beginner pilots. The controller is much more detailed giving you a digital reading of throttle setting, controller battery life, LED on/off, high/low controls, and trim settings. I have a blast now flying this around the house for the 7 minutes or so the battery lasts, and recharges in about 45 minutes time. The USB recharger also allows 2 batteries to be recharged at once!
The only reason I do not give this 5 stars is that there is a light on the front that doesn't seem to work on mine. Aside from this extremely minor detail, I find this to be a very fun, inexpensive amazing little R/C flying product.

If we could give it less stars we would. It went up right out of the gate.....then went down, and regardless of what we do, it never went up again..... It was heartbreaking. Read morePublished 1 month ago by A. Giordano
