Nothing But Disappointment
on December 27, 2013
Are you already an expert at flying things? If so, ignore this.
If not, these are the pitfalls of this ridiculous device.
If you want it to be under any kind of control, it requires trimming, which is the flying equivalent to calibration, I guess you could say. Thing is, unless it never contacts anything ever, it's going to need trimming all the time. It isn't hard at all to wind up with a helicopter that takes off moving forward at about ten times the speed it goes up. Needless to say, it's going to hit something pretty quick as it spirals and/or darts off completely out of control. Try and trim it before it's airborne, try again, by the time you have anything remotely flyable, pieces will have likely fallen off from all the collisions. Good luck finding them. Even if you could, you'd be chasing your tail with the trim, crash, re-trim (because most crashes change something!) until the battery runs out (maybe 10 min each, or less). Wait an hour to charge, chase your tail again.
This thing lasted a day for me, which was the third time I'd charged the batteries, before pieces were gone and it was done. The stabilizer bar also bent almost off the bat.
Save your time, save your money, save your frustration, and save your disappointment.
