Maybe there was something wrong with our's, I don't know. Even at FULL charge, it only flew for 4-5 minutes, before having to be charged again, for a min. of 4 hours. ???!!!! What kind of toy does that?
So first of all: Takes HOURS to charge.
2- Lasted only 4-5 min of flying before battery was out and heli crashed to the ground. Should beep or something when you have only a minute of battery left so you can land the heli.
3- Steering is awful, very delayed, even though we were flying within a 6 foot diameter circle. This was a present for a 10 year old boy, but not even my husband could get it to work right.
4- Video never seemed to record.
5- Had for 2 days- literally, before heli said it was charging but did not hold any type of charge at all.
6- Really not a good value. Not for the length it lasted.
7-= one VERY disappointed 10 year old (and his Dad too of course) The child in question never used it unsupervised, so I know it wasn't from wear and tear. Plus, unless we flew it into the BATHTUB, how much wear and tear could be had in 2 days?? Pros: yes, I will give it two:
1- COOL concept, just failed to deliver. Very exciting gift, until it wasn't.
2- They did manage to snap about 5 pictures, and they were pretty clear and decent quality (if you have enough lighting). So, save your money until the next one comes out and maybe they will fix the cons.
