A Helicopter That is a Lot of Fun Review by Richard and Tim Libert
Quality
Price
Value

I have only had the opportunity to fly it three times however so far so good. This seems to be a real nice rc helicopter. I have had several smaller but very similar versions (control wise). So flying it was familiar to me. A manual didn't come with it however there is available online. This is important for the charging sequence and makes it go much faster. Some of the other more negative charging comments listed in other reviews I believe are influenced by improper charging protocol. My experience has been about 2 /1/2 to 3 hours of charging for 15 minutes of flight time. It is made of very sturdy construction and will handle hard landings and tree incidents without any serious damage. As listed in other reviews it can not be flown in a controlled manner in any breeze above about 3 miles per hour. This could dangerous to pets, small children and valued furnishings as it could cause a nice cut by coming into contact with the rotating blades.

Worth It!! Review by BPS

Very nice for the $$. My two boys love the ones I bought for them. These things really surprised me with their durability. MANY HARD LANDINGS and they are still flying great.

The previous reviews about wind speed are accurate. It will not fly under control in winds over anything other than CALM.

I bought this at a little convent Store in Ohio. It was 99.00 Bucks. I live in California. Anyway I have bought about 8 Helicopters and From little to 2 footers..And this one is it for beginners to intermediate. Is the BEST ONE EVER This Helicopter is really easy to fly. It comes worth a extra Blade and back Blade too. I have crashed 5 times and it still fly's and I have not yet had too buy parts for it. So if you want a Helicopter you can fly with out allot the buttons trim,yawl etc this is IT... It has one button for trim You put that in the Middle and it fly's great. Only thing is it only goes for 15 minutes. And here it is on sale for 40 bucks.. It is definitely with the Money!!!!

Great, for the price! Review by Chase

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

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".
