This is the first R/C heli I have had.I was surprised how well made and the thought and time somebody put into what most would consider just a toy.Iknow it is but for just [$] that is some piece of technology.
Just picked this one up for my 8 yr old. This helicopter works as advertised. You can crash it and it is protected by the Cage and also rights it self. This gives you plenty of chances to learn how to fly it. Other helicopters I had were broken only after one or two crashes leaving the kids upset and discouraged. I like this one since I don't freak out when the kids are learning how to fly it, they can really learn on their own and not worry. I noticed the battery gets stronger after a few charge and discharges. Have Fun!
