About as much fun as you can have for the price! I saw some kids in my neighborhood playing with this one evening, and I thought it was so cool I ordered one for myself. The box wasn't very sturdy and was a little dented, So I was worried about the product, but it was just fine. It came charged so worked right out of the box. I stupidly launched it inside and so it immediately hit the wall and crashed, and shut it self off as promised. As fragile as it seems, it was not at all damaged. Took it outside and was still too close to the house, so it hit the wall a couple of times. It seems to be not as fragile as it looks. Finally went out to the field behind my house and had a blast. Since there is no remote control I wondered if there was a way to bring it down other than trying to catch it, which is not always easy, and then I read on the package that using any button on any TV remote control will bring it down. I had a hard time believing that, but I grabbed my TV remote when I went outside-and sure enough it works! it also arrived a day or two early-thank you seller! The only downside is that apparently it only runs for about 8 to 10 minutes on a single charge. That is according to the box. That's about all I used it the first time out, so I have yet to see if it will last longer. I do realize that a bigger battery-one that would hold a longer charge-would be too heavy to keep the ball airborne. Other than that, a great bit of fun!
