Best Review From Consumen :

I bought this on a whim when I came upon it in Amazon's deal section. I have a 7-year-old son who I thought might enjoy it. I've used a few of these mini helicopters in the past, having bought one for my nephew a few years back. But this little chopper would fly circles around those earlier models (literally). It allows very precise control and isn't as susceptible to internal air currents as the earlier copters were. You can practically stop on a dime with this little guy and have full control over rotation speed (height) plus directionality - left, right, back and forth - via the dual joysticks.

The flight time is a little low - seems like it's around 5-7 minutes before it starts losing its charge - but plugging the included charger cable into my PC allows the unit to get recharged fairly quickly without draining the batteries of the remote control (which also has a charging cable so you can charge the helicopter from the controller). Also, attempts to use this chopper outside have had limited success, specifically in bright sunlight where it was practically unresponsive. If I stepped in to provide the unit with some shade, it would respond to the remote, but once it made it out of the shadow it became unresponsive and actually tried to escape heading skyward at maximum speed (fortunately it lost power about 30 feet up and landed safely atop my flat roof). But I don't think these little guys are intended for outdoor use.

Overall the durability is pretty good. The blades have held up fine through a couple of dozen flights with a couple of dozen crashes (oopsy). One specific part - a triangular stabilizer on the tail where the struts are attached - broke on an early flight. But I was able to fix it with some packing take and superglue and it has actually held up fine on multiple flights since then with no ill effects from the repair. Also, the tail rotor came off in one minor crash, but I was able to slip this back on and it has been fine with no apparent permanent damage.

So you may be wondering then, what's this "small problem" I refer to in the review title? Well, if you're buying this as a gift for a child, niece or nephew, you might find that it's so much fun that you don't want to let them use it much (read: at all). But there's a solution to that problem: buy two.
