Rated 5 out of 5Â by RtiQlitQT4U He and I both love it!
VERY durable, easy to fly, cool little lights, a bit short on flying time duration per charge. Wish it flew more than 7 to 10 minutes per charge, but for the price and quality, can live with this. Boyfriend got it for Christmas and he flies it every day. I fly it, too, and I'm surprised at how easy it is to get the hang of flying it. I'm not sure about kids under the age of 8 being able to fly it easily, but us middle-aged adults just love it! :-)
I sure don't know why the previous reviewer got two "duds", but perhaps that is a situation unique to her store/area and not indicative of this item. I find these to be of great quality for the price, and there are now two in our family, both purchased in complete working order.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by 4035 I would never buy this again.
Bought this helicopter for my grandson in Kaukauna, Wi. for Christmas gift. The first one would not hold a charge so he was able to play with it < a minute. Exchanged for a different one and when fully charged didn't have enough power to lift off the ground. Returned and went t o a hobby store and bought a quality toy. Kohl's was good about helping me with the exchange and return, not their fault that the item was JUNK!!!!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by lmr74 Purchased twice, neither work
I got this as a Christmas present for my grandson. The original one purchased did not 'lift off' as it was missing a part so returned and bought another. This one is also missing parts and will not work. Sorry, but will not try to see if 3rd time is the charm as my grandson deserves a toy that arrives complete and in working order.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Souljaboy25 My son loves this
I bought this for my 7yr old son for his birthday. Although it is winter outside, we have tried several times to practice in the house. He is better than I am at getting the helicopter up in the air but trying to make it go anywhere else, we haven't mastered that yet. It is a pretty neat starter helicopter and I am eager to see how it performs outside. However, the battery life on it is HORRIBLE. It doesn't last that very long until you have to recharge it, that's the only down side. It does come with 2 extra blades and the ones on there now seem to be holding up pretty well as we have both crashed the helicopter while still spinning into objects in the house. I guess overall for the price I would buy it again, I just wish the battery life would last longer before having to recharge it. The recharge process is pretty quick though. I usually charge it about 20-30 minutes and were good to go again for a little while.
