I don't find the noise being bad at all - nowhere close to what I consider loud noises, like an air dryer or a mixer.
But the re-charging time is too long, considering that the battery is not removable. The result: about 6 min of play time (actually, frustration for me) and 1 hour of waiting for recharging. I wish the battery was swap-able.
Overall, it is a pretty ingenious little toy and I hope that I can learn to overcame its instability before I give up and return it in frustration. The whole point of buying it was to learn to fly indoors before I graduate to a bigger (and more expensive) copter.
I forgot to mention the noise, when you start flying this toy you will hear the same noise when a garbage truck in on R gear mode, I personally did not like the noise and it is loud.
The Bad: Non-replaceable battery seems to take forever to charge. It lasts just a paltry few minutes. Like all the others have discovered this does NOT calibrate well just stationary this thing is all over the place. Its like trying to teach a camel how to ice skate. Mine does not rotate to the left well AND when I try to it drops a few feet. Like the power reduces and doesn't compensate correctly for rotation. Its slow to respond to controls. Except that stunt button. That one seems to work immediately especially if you hit it by accident LOL.
The Ugly: The look on your face when you realize all those fancy toggles and options on the control are fake. 8 batteries required! No antenna?
The Summary: This is a $35 toy for adult kids with a ton of patience. Not for kids they will toss it. Its a lot smaller than it looks in the pictures.
1. It's plug-and-play, less to do than other mini-quads.
2. It is VERY tough.
3. The foam surrounding the ducts saves the quad and your big screen when running into things in a small space.
4. The pre-canned stunts work well.
1. Not priced realistically. Last year they were $80. They are now $60. This is really a $25-$35 toy.
2. Because of the design, it simply is not an outside quad.
3. Non-removable, non-replaceable battery.
4. Battery definitely has a run life... 2-3 flights a day and the battery will significantly degrade after 6mo.
5. High Sensitivity setting is the only real way to fly it. Low is horrible.
At the end of the day this is an expensive, very tough toy for indoor use only. The Syma X1 is a far better entry-level quad and is only $30-$35. If you must have a surround around your blades, there are other quads cheaper that will fly outside much better. I think "Air Hogs" are more about marketing. There is a lot of fun to be had with the X4, but it is severely limited and I'd be surprised if you get a year out of the battery. For $60, shop around.
Update: Since purchasing the helix i decided to do a wiring modification and upgrade power supply. Added JST connector for easy battery swap and a LaTrax Li-po 3.7v 650mah battery giving it low profile a weight distribution to not interupt gyro balance on flight. Unfortunitely going any higher in mah can give you even longer flight time and increased power but unless more modifications on housing it to the helix weight and flight aerodynamics will be greatly effected. I have attached before and after of modifications to show internal components, accessing the battery bay and mother board must be handled with caution. Upgrading the battery has provided increase in flight time, flight power and slight added weight from bigger battery gives more stability indoors and even outdoors of course with low mph winds.
