unbelievable value

"I have bought and flown probably 6 different RC helicopters... everything from a $30 to $350. I have crashed all of them beyond repair. (lesson here is that helicopters take practice... and even then... its possible to crash them)
Remember... unlike RC airplanes that tend to glide without power... if your helicopter has issues... it falls like a rock.
Anyway... you can get this even cheaper in the store... its incredible for the price. It hovers as well as a $300 helicopter... and although it doesnt have as much control... there is plenty of control options for this guy. Its plenty heavy to fly outside... I have done even in heavy winds... just make sure that you have room... and you will be following it... as its not strong enough to fight winds... but its definitely strong enough to stay in flight.
Plenty of control to fly inside as well... very stable.. and I have 8' ceilings and have NO issues whatsoever flying around the place.
I have flown about 10 charges so far... and its been great... the only concern I have is finding replacement parts... but I havent broken this one (yet) :)"

Great starter heli.

Pros: easy to fly, durable metal construction, cheap fun, very stable
Cons: usb is ony way to charge it, wind sensitive
Model Number: 50400
"I was skeptical of this heli because it seemed to cheap of price. I was wrong. It's not a full on heli like the much more expensive hobby grade ones, but it is very easy to fly and works great. It says indoor/outdoor, but outdoor use must be on a very calm day. Forward and reverse speed are very weak which means a slight breeze will blow it around. Anything more than 5 mph wind is un-flyable. Indoors is great and control is easily mastered. Regardless at such a cheap price you can't go wrong for a starter heli. The USB only charging is a pain as it requires two USB plugs to be used at the same time. Flight time is about 6 minutes and charging takes about 30 minutes."

Lots of fun for big kids

Pros: easy to fly durable
Cons: unstable in any wind
Model Number: Interceptor 052
"When I saw this in the store I was shocked at the price. I figured it would be just ok...but it's A LOT of fun. I've never owned an R/C helo before, so maybe my barometer is off. But in any case it has provided me with many fun flights.
I've crashed this poor thing more times than I can remember and it still flies like a champ. I agree with the other reviewers that say this is primarily an indoor unit. If you are outdoors you better have the room to chase it down--any wind will carry it off. Overall I would say this is a real bargain for the return in fun it provides."
