This is everything you could want in a personal RC chopper. I purchased this for my son's birthday last year. I don't understand the negative reviews. It operates well in flight as long as it is not a super windy day. It is really fun to practice landings on different objects such as roofs or stationary objects. We haven't had any issues at this point in time. It operates very well at a fairly long distance; I would just make sure and maintain a line of sight with the chopper. This is a cool gift for any kid or adult in my opinion. I bought a second one so we could race them and practice landings. Very cool Product. Highly recommend!
I love toy helicopters and after ordering the more expensive GYRO Hercules 3.5CH Electric RTF RC Helicopter, I decided I was going to buy my son the nano Hercules Helicopter. Again, I was surprised at how great this helicopter flew. The helicopter has a super strong polymer frame that can take a large amount of force on impact and is great for those kids who crash everything and step on toys when they arent playing with them. This awesome helicopter is great for kids because they can throw it, step on it, or even crash it and it is ready to fly again. Flying the Hercules helicopter was a breeze. It was easy for both my son and I to control the helicopter and make it go forward, backward, up, down, left, right and hover over anything we wanted too. The other great thing about the helicopter is that there is no assembly required, you just put in a few batteries and are ready to go. I am still amazed at how even when this helicopter crashes or falls that it is undamaged and ready to go again for another flight. I have broken so many helicopters in the past and this Hercules helicopter will be around for a long time. If your kids like helicopters this is the perfect present for them.
Bought this for my 60 year old sister. She has been wanting one for some time. She really likes it. Still learning how to not run into walls but she is having a lot of fun with it. Her 30 year old son tried it and he wants one now.. Seems very durable and we will probably be purchasing another one soon. I will tell my friends.
First I got the wrong color. Second the instructions were so incomplete, it doesn't even tell you whether its charged let alone how to charge it or for how long. Also it did not come with a wall charger; only a computer (USB). I had to call the number provided. The manufacturer said they were still working on the instructions. The people in customer service didn't know much about it either and transferred me to tech support who didn't answer and since yesterday have not called me back. I called Overstock today and the lady who answered was nice and sent me a return label right away. She said a lot of these type of helicopters don't work. I would not buy this item.
I bought this as a Christmas present for my son, who is now 31. Every year I buy him one toy as a reminder of the good old days. He loved it , my husband loved it and our 2 grandsons, ages 6 & 7, loved it. No women played with it, not that they wouldn't have wanted to, but the men kept it to themselves. I think just about anyone could have fun with this. It's still flying so it's also well made.
Purchased for a gift for an 8 year old. He absolutely loved it, was flying helicopter inside and outside. He had no problems with the remote controls, helicopter would do what he commanded. Had lots of fun with this gift. Would definitely recommend, great buy.
My daughter was very excited Xmas morning. We charged it the the before. All went down hill from there. Very unresponsive. Turning or using any controls just be a me frustrating and interest was lost. I could never get it to fly properly.
