The left stick (power/lift) is not spring-loaded like most other remotes; it has small detents so that it will kind of "click" into a position and stay there if you take your hand off of it. One thing to note is that when you first turn on the helicopter and remote, you must push the power stick up all the way, then down all the way (sometimes more than once) before the helicopter will respond. This is a safety feature to ensure you don't turn the helicopter on and it unexpectedly go to full power. There is also a trim knob on the remote that lets you adjust the gyro so that when you fly or hover this, the helicopter stays rock-steady, which is important.
While mini helicopters are not exactly sturdy, this one has survived several falls and minor crashes and is still flying fine. Plus, you can purchase many spare parts- such as rotor blades-- cheaply.
The box says this is for age 14+, but any "responsible" boy or girl who is 10 or older can learn to fly it with some adult supervision. Primarily, kids need to learn that once you have it hovering, you need to move the controls only a little, not a lot, to fly it and maintain control. A gym or other large indoor area would be a perfect place to fly this, but I fly mine in my living room without any problems. I wouldn't recommend flying it near expensive new HDTV's though, just in case the operator crashes it into the HDTV and damages the screen.
Negatives? Well, the manual is written in "Engrish" (poorly translated chinese to english). For a laugh, just read the owner's manual. Here'e a couple examples: (page 2) "While the indicator of the controller is sparkle, which shows the controller is lack of power. And you can change some batteries for it." My english translation: "When the power LED on the transmitter begins to flash (blink), the batteries are low. Replace the batteries." Here's one more: (page 3) "When the airplane away from the ground in 30cm position, the helicopter will suffer by itself blade vortex to become unstable, we call it 'effect response', when the helicopter weight lower, and the 'effect response' affect will be bigger." My translation: "If you are hoving the helicopter appx 30cm (1 ft) above the ground, the helicopter may begin lose lift or become unstable due to a characteristic common to helicopters known as 'ground effect.'
Anyway, just buy it. It's a great toy for anyone from 10 to 70. You can't get a helicopter of this quality and low price at your local discount store.
A note 6 months after I bought it: I cannot believe how bad I beat this helicopter and it still looks like new. Once I dropped it (obviously unintentionally) straight from a sixth floor to the ground (hard concrete), and nothing happened it. This helicopter is incredibly durable.
Here are my observations: The S032 is definately a good trainer and flys excellent indoors and decent outdoors. It hovers great. It is fairly manueverable. The motors are really powerful. Forward flight speed out of the box is ok for learning, add weight to the nose and it helps. Wind....if you see leaves moving this bird will soon end up in another county. Run time is 6-10 minutes depending on throttle. Recharge is 30-50 minutes depending on usage. Night flying outdors is fun with the led lights. I has been a lawn dart quite a few times and we have broken the right landing gear, the canopy mounts, lost one tail boom support, wasted one set of blades but this thing still flies. For the abuse it has been through I am amazed how it has held together!
Tips for improved performance. Break the battery in with easy first 2 flights w/ many landing to let it cool and complete uninterupted charging. Once the bird will not climb well, turn off and recharge. Never run these LiPo batteries dead. Order spare blades, crashing causes nicks on blades and this will reduce balance, performance and stability in the air. Spare blades are CHEAP! Add some clay or glue or any weight to inside nose of the Canopy to improve forward flight speed. To improve flight range, unwrap the antenna wire and let it hang. This gave me 4x the standard range and with the power these motors have I was able to fly WAY over the mature GA Pines surrounding our yard and about 100ft away.
OK, here is the really cool part. I let my 12y/o nephew fly it outside. After a few crashes he was getting the hang of it. Recharge...then on the next flight he was making this heli do things it was not supposed to be able to do. He would climb, spin, chop the throttle while giving forward elevator. It would nose down and dive and then he would give full throttle. The helo would fly across the yard FAST!!! and climb out of the dive, occasionally going into a banked turn until the flybar stabilzed the rotors. It was a hoot!!! We may be getting another to keep around as a trainer for visitors as we graduate to full collective pitch helos.
