Very Fun to Fly4 Posted by: from: on My 10 year old son purchased this and is having a blast flying it. The only thing I would like to see would be a replacement battery so you could have one charging while you fly.

Nice copter but not for a child. Needs adjustments3 Posted by: from: on Nice helicopter. Needs careful adjustments. Poor customer service. Bought one that lasted 5 battery charges and customer service said I was stuck with it. Took it back to Best Buy and they replaced it. New one has a faulty remote. Would not buy this brand again.
