Well Built, but Bad Electronics5/23/2012
This helicopter is built with inferior (cheap) electronic components. The receiver is either picking up stray signals or there is a wiring issue. The helicopter will throttle up to the max without the controller being on and either slam the ceiling or cut your hand. Even with the controller on, it won't let you get a stable trim setting. DEFINITELY NOT for a child to play with. Adults ONLY!
Really nice helicopter12/29/2011
I ordered this for my 13 year old son for Christmas and he loves it. It is really fun and easy to fly. The dual rotors make it much more stabile to fly. Just a little bit of practice and you're off! A really nice helicopter for the money. Might want to order an extra battery or two somewhere. Takes 60 minutes to charge for about 9-10 minutes of flight time.
