2 crashes and it's over,

This review is from: Propel RC Micropter - Wireless Micro Helicopter--Blue and Silver
Love the copter, but it isn't durable. First crash broke off the bottom left rear landing gear (if that's even possible, it's so small.) This resulted in a copter that can't land/takeoff on its own because it's not level. Had to be hand launched after that point. Second crash sheared of half the top rotor assembly (blade included)-- can't be fixed since it's the actual part the replacement blades screw into (no spare part for that included with spare rotors). Total flight time-- less than 5 minutes before the copter was totally wrecked. (these were merely crashes into our apartment wall) Fun to fly-- but a big zero on crash survivability. If it can't take a normal crash (and it will crash as one learns to fly it) -- what good is it? Wasted money.

i don't mean to add any negativity to this review, however i can say that i received this copter from a grab bag christmas & it has been sooo addicting. i am not sure about other peoples charing issues, btu i have 3800mah rechargeable in my remote & i can keep it in the air much longer than the stated 6 minute on the box. i have also taken it much higher than the stated height (cleared my parents 2 1/2 story house easy) & best of all??? i crashed it into a 3 foot pond on christmas. . . freezing cold water. it remained at the bottom for a minute or so in the ON position & i nutted up & reached in to get it. thinking it was a gonner, the lights were still on! this thing still works to the day! minus a few body crashes from operator error, it is almost indestructible. best of luck.
