Looks impressive but there are better models
on August 9, 2010
I bought this heli mainly for the flybar and taillight. I does fill a small niche in that I can fly it in total darkness outside as long as there's less than 3mph wind. Even thought this is a large bird, it does not have the authority to fly in any wind. Also, because of it's size you can do no more than hover indoors. Also, the blades are heavy engough that I'd worry about damaging furniture, windows, etc..
The 4hrs needed to recharge (NiCad Battery) for a 10min flight means this bird is best suited for when you want to do a little different type of flying... along with the rest of your helis. It's simply too long to wait for the batteries to recharge.
I own Syma S022, S024, S107. The S107 is THE BEST heli I currently own for indoor flying. It small, light and durable so you can actually fly indoors, without worring about damaging your flatscreen TV... or the heli.
