Not a Good Chopper2 Posted by: from: on I bought this about a year ago when Best Buy was still Future Shop in my little city. I used it several times in 2015 with no major issues except the extended charge time. I dug it out yesterday and plugged it in to use today. When I tried to use it today 01/04/16, it would not even get into the air. I guess that this is Best Buys April Fools joke. I can not return it as it is out of warranty now having been bought at Xmas 2014. I have also been told that there is no replacement Battery but I am a tinkerer. I will find one!

Excellent toy but battery is not that good4 Posted by: from: on Got this for my sons bday as gift. He loves it and as he was learning how to control it, i get to show him and enjoyed it as well. Excellent toy rc helicopter, took us some time to learn. Heli has rechargeable batt built in, remote needs 4 AA. Rechargeable batt gets drain quick about 15-20mins play time. Overall good not great.

Cool Toy5 Posted by: from: on Cool toy. Bit to big for average house and durable enough to withstand high altitude crashes. Money well spent. Good for 42 bucks. Battery lasts a really long time.
