UPDATE: They got in touch with me on Facebook and said they'll send a replacement prop; apparently they've re-engineered it to be stronger. Very good customer service. I'll update again when it gets here; hopefully second time is a charm, because this is a very cool toy!
UPDATE: Replacement props received; they definitely seem stronger.
As soon as the birthday celebration was over with, I unpacked the box, folded the plane (following the easy instructions included) and put the batteries in the charger. NOTE: minor annoyance... I wish the battery compartment didn't require the Philips screws - would be better if the cover would just slide or snap on/off for easier/quicker access. I slid the propeller clip assembly onto the nose and made a couple test flights (no power) to observe whether the plane needed trimming (adjustment of the elevons and rudder). I did bend the elevons up a little and put a slight bend to the rudder slightly to the left.
Satisfied the plane was now "tracking" alright, I charged it for the maximum recommended 20 seconds, then gave it a throw (this was in a large grassy area - do NOT fly this plane over hard surfaces - that could easily break the propeller upon landing or crashing).
My first powered flight was a total DUD! Tried again...another poor flight..the plane would go for a short distance, stall, and drop to the ground. Thinking the trim was off, I played with the elevons and dihedral adjustment and tried again - nope, still had a dismal flight. Dissappointed, I was about to give up, but tried once more. Holy smoke, that thing flew beautifully and for a l-o-n-g time!! Success at last, and it has worked flawlessly ever since - it is an outstanding and impressive product!
Anyone who owns one of these may have already guessed what I was doing wrong for my first few initial flight failures. Yep...I had the charger UPSIDE DOWN which caused the propeller to go in REVERSE!Read more ›
How amazing and exciting product. My children loved it and we spent a few quality hours together enjoying the "Air-force 1" test flights.
Don't use regular printer paper for this....it will work, but not very well. You need a heavier weight paper like 25# minimum. And you need to make the airplane that they recommend. And you need to clip the motor to the nose like the instructions say. Then charge up the motor and toss to enjoy! If you bend up the wings just right, it will fly longer! Not for children. It is too delicate!

This is really cool. if you think about it...its just a paper airplane with a motor!!! How cool is that?? Also for its size it puts out a lot of thrust.. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
I had high hopes for this, but found it under powered. Flights were very short. Not much farther than hand-thrown paper planes without the motor!! Read morePublished 7 months ago by Tim
