- Great, for the price! Review by Chase
Value Quality Price
Great fun for flying in anything UNDER a 2 MPH breeze. Easy to fly in calm weather. I wish the tail rotor had more strength and that the battery didn't take 3 hours to charge, but all in all, a nice beginners chopper!

- DONT BUY IT Review by spencer
Price Value Quality
well i purchased it last night, and its getting returned today. first off i have wanted this thing for a yr, but 100 bucks for a toy made me wait. last night i get home read the directions, charge it up, go out to play with it and get 1 take off, and thats about it. so im thinking maybe it needs more charge time so all night long this time. i wake up like a kid on christmas hop out of bed in my boxers out the door this has to be read to go! i got maybe 2 takeoffs, easy to fly, was havin a blast, for 3 minutes. then it just sat on the ground and spun till it completely died. 4 hours charge time for 10 mins is predictable with a rc toy, but 4 hrs for 3 mins is a waste.

- Chopper Fun Review by Benny
Quality Price Value
I bought one of these at RK after owning two of the little indoor S-3 'copters (which are also great fun, but do not work well outside due to wind sensitivity and short control range). The price is about as low as you will find these. It takes about an hour or two to charge for a few minutes of flight, but those few minutes of flying are really cool. The S-8 'copter has stood up to several hard landings with no damage other than a strut on one of the props popping loose, which was easily popped back on. It comes with spare blades which I have not needed yet. It does OK in a very slight drifting wind, but is totally unflyable in windspeed above about 2 MPH. Early evenings seem to present the perfect flight time after the wind dies down. It even sounds like a helo as it goes by. You can't get wild with the thing like some more powerful "stunt" copters, but I find it quite enjoyable to whirr around the yard. Also, be careful to have the control off before turning the chopper on because the spinning blades can "leave a mark".
