Works fairly well if you know how to use it. Needs a certain amount of experience and skill with RC helicopters to use and enjoy. Maybe start with a smaller model first to get the hang of it.
I'm a first-timer, and broke one of the rotors when it tipped over on concrete before taking off. Also it will not fly properly over grass surfaces specially when taking off (ground effect?). Works best with hard surfaces like concrete or asphalt.
I bought this to play with with my son after a few plastic models didn't last. This appeared tough and flew great the first time we used it. Now, for some reason it wont spin up. Manual (as expected) is worthless. Don't buy this - save your money.
The copter will not go forward. It barley goes backward. Once you get it up in the air you have very little control of where it is going. Get near anything like a tree and it will crash into it. It was very frustrating I like the way the copter looks and it is stable to fly if only you could control it. Save your money there are a lot of other choices out there.
I bought this RC helicopter for my son. I had seen many reviews about this helicopter and most of them were positive. So, I gave it a try. The helicopter right out of the box is stable and feels high in quality since many parts of the helicopter is made of metal. The helicopter remote needs 6 AA batteries to work. This RC helicopter is very durable. My son had crashed this helicopter a few times and it has gotten up into the air perfectly every single time. This RC helicopter is the best I have bought so far. The only problem is the pretty long charging time. It takes about 40-50 minutes to charge. Even so, I give this RC helicopter 5 stars.
