Purchased as gift, so one has not been used yet. They look fine. Would have liked to have been able to select the colors. Working it isn't intuitive ... at least for a college student. They look a little fragile, although time will tell.
I would urge you to test these out before giving them as a gift. They are a bit touchy and I have had some that have not worked right out of the box. This seller does make things right immediately though! Also, DO NOT TRY TO GRAB THEM WHILE THE BLADES ARE SPINNING...you will defiantly feel it! So use caution while younger children are around. But these are really fun if you play in an area with enough space to fly them, they're awesome!
These toys are both tons of fun for children, but very educational as they introduce flight dynamics of helicopters to children at a very young age. My only wish were communications between controller and helicopters were based on RF instead of IR. In the outdoors you do lose control of the choppers very quickly .
These are quite simply a lot of fun.
They are fast, agile and a pain to control until you get the hang of it. I recommend you use them outdoors with plenty of space until you develop the motor skills for fine control.
They are, necessarily, fragile because of weight constraints. See recommendation above.
The instuctions are almost a joke, badly written and not inclusive of some information it would be nice to have.
That being said, these are FUN!
2 pack of this state-of-the-art RC 3.5 channel Gyro Helicopter has counter-rotating blades which provide you extra stability and lift. It also comes with dual fan-style blades which allow for forward movement, and they make turning left and right easier and more controllable than ever before! When you fly this amazing Intelli Heli helicopter, you will feel the difference.If you are looking for a super helicopter with great control, then this is the mini remote control helicopter for you! Highly durable and outstanding fun for ages 8 and up.
