This is a very affordable RC helicopter which works well and is cheap enough that I don’t feel intimidated or fearful of trying aggressive moves or tricks. The wealth of control options allow you to fine tune your movement if you are a more veteran user, but even beginners can pick it up quickly. If he will damage it either), I was able to teach my 5 year nephew how to fly it (and I’m not afraid. I like the flexibility of USB charging if you are at home or charging via the controller when you are out (I use rechargeable AAs which saves a lot of money, too). If you are starting to get into RC and you want something that is cheap and won’t break the bank if you happen to make a hard landing, this is the perfect starter copter for you.
For a 3 channel smaller copter this guy is pretty impressive. It is controlled by IR so it has to have a line of sight to be controlled. The IR is what your tv remote uses most likely. It is light that we can not see. There is a small receiver on the bottom of the copter. I was impressed at how well it worked. I have to admit I am not the best pilot but the copter itself flew well and was relatively stable. I go over the high points in the video but basically this is presented well. The controller take s 6 aa batteries. There is the controller, the copter, a usb charging cable, and an extra tail rotor. Don’t get this expecting a crazy stunt copter that you saw at the RC air show. It is cool for what it is (an entry level smaller copter) I would use caution getting this for smaller kids. It has some delicate components and could do some damage if it crashed into something glass indoors. (in the video mine wrecks) Full disclosure the good guys selling this decided to hook me up at a discount so I could review this guy. I am glad they did, its pretty cool.
