This helicopter was tested with winds of up to 20 miles per hour and has flight time of 11 minutes per charge at 43 degrees. At 70 degrees flight time is about 10 minutes. This helicopter when the blades are flipped can be used to learn how to fly inverted on an inexpensive helicopter.

My friend and I have purchased these from Batteries Plus store. The helicopter is durable and has lasted through many falls that include hitting things on the way down. Initially found that to get the radio to lock, had to turn them on at the same time. Then it didnt matter. The instructions are pretty bad. The battery that comes with it is absolutely junk. Doesnt last the reported time of 11 mins and doesnt even have enough juice to get the helicopter off the ground. It is said on the box and on the site that it is a LiPo battery but on the battery itself it says its a LiIon. Either way if you get this get a different battery. Once we got a different lipo battery the helicopter works well and actually lasts a good amount of time. I replaced it with a trinity 7.4v 900 mah lipo battery and works great.

awsome 4 channel heli!! handles great, im a novice at flying helicopters.. to be honest i only took intrest because of battlefield 3, but when i did i was really excited after i stared to fly this bad boy. fast, manuverable, stable and fun.i mounted a 50 gram cameraon it and itstill took off and flew like it did without it.battery drains fast, but you can get better battery that lasts 3-5 mins longer pending on how you fly this baby. im still having fun. worth every dollar!!

awsome little aircraft. little over a foot long very comfertable and easy to dial in. i was happy because it handles and controls like the big boys but comesin a little package. i wish it had longer flight time and personally 20-30% more power, but im an adrenaline junky thats just me. learned to fly in my living room; taxi around at first then lift off.. exciting and easy to stabalize. i give it a five because its a great allaround but i want to say four becuase i want a little more power and flight time.
