It is much like any other low-to-mid range rc helicopter. It has it's problems like a shorter range, occasional issues steering, and the wheel-drop thing isn't much more than a gimmick. It will take a bit to get the hang of flying it and at times you lose control over it.
But it delivers where you want it too. It has good battery life and although you have to recharge the heli every half an hour or so it charges back up quickly when connected to the controller. And while it's steering occasionally baffles, it is actually a lot easier to fly for a lot longer than any other rc helicopter I have played with. The very best thing about it is that it is very, very sturdy. It doesn't look or feel like it should be sturdy but it has stood up to more crashing, bashing, cat attacks, and falls than I could have ever reasonably expected. It actually fell down several stories once and is still working well. My 4 year old son enjoys nothing so much as to send it jetting up to crash into the ceiling over and over again and it has never taken damage or even required more adjusting than resetting it's switch.
Like I said, the wheels don't really add anything to it. It isn't easy or rewarding to try to drive it on the ground and it only makes the helicopter somewhat harder to fly. Then again, my son really loves launching the wheels midair and so it does have some value over one that didn't have any extra features. It shoots missiles too. Good luck keeping track of them but it does shoot them fairly reliably.
I'm sure there are better helicopter toys out there but at this price range I am very satisfied with the quality of this one. It is everything a little boy could hope for in a rc helicopter and a lot of fun for the adults and pets as well.
This was a Christmas present for my son and he had begged for it after seeing commercial after commercial (Thanks Nick, Cartoon Network, Disney). I'm so glad we got it for him as this was a huge pleaser for him, dad, uncles, and any other visitor we had over the holidays. The remote is also the charger and the wires tuck into a little compartment,which is pretty cool. The air hog toy itself is very light and seems very flimsy, BUT... has handled multiple crashes and a run-in with a big dog that thought it was a bug. The wheel chassis drops off to let the helicopter take off and the drop strike only works when the thing is flying.
After 3 weeks of vigorous playing and charging it's still going strong.
Only con: do not let your child plug this in as it's very fragile and if plugged in the wrong way it wont work and I'm worried my son's going to damage the charging port..but so far so good.
