Fun simple flying helicopter7/28/2012
This was my first true 3 channel helicopter and I am very please with how easy it was to fly. Any slight breeze will effect the flight characteristics though so be aware of that during outdoor flight. Great product for the money.
Works Great! and my 6 year boy loves it3/10/2012
Not sure what the other reviewers writing about. I purchased this helicopter for my 6 year old son. The Typhoon 333 came in less than a week. I opened it up and put it on charge. When the Red light on the “wall charger cube” went green, we were ready for our test flight. I “Dad” gave it the first flight to set the trim knob for rotation and general test. The Typhoon 333 took off the living room floor without any lack of power. It easily can hit the ceiling. I flew around the middle of our small living room for about 5 mins and then turned it over to my 6 year old. My son has learned a lot in 2 days of flying it around, he really has gotten pretty good at it. He flies it to the battery runs out and then he plugs in the charger and watches the red light. I believe the 333 is built very well and has been a joy for me and my son. You can get extra Blades on buy.com for six bucks! That’s a great deal! The 333 in the mid 30 dollar range with controller is a steal of a deal. I will purchase another to have dueling chopper flights..lol The only Negative I can find is that the battery is NOT made to be changed in between flights so you have to wait for the battery to charge. All-in-all it works great! Flies Great! I’ll try and post a video if it will let me here of my son flying.
Bought the ODYSSEY 333 to give as a christmas gift. Looks cool and feels durable. This helicopter was unable to maintain flight, even after fully charged. Kid lost interest in minutes. Have to get a credit now. Very disappointed.
Cool Gift for a kid12/12/2011
Charged for an hour and was flying it around the office in minutes. Not exactly safe indoors, but should make many little ones happy this holiday season.
Looks cool, doesn't fly well11/17/2011
Helicopter looks nice, feels stout but will not fly more than 4-6 inches above the floor. I have tried multiple times, removed some of the small decorative "wings" and to no avail. There is nothing in the manual that addresses a lack of vertical power. I will be returning this item. It's cool, but only if you like it skimming across the floor.
