NENSC said: Horrible Reviews @.@ Yeah, I saw that just as I posted it. I'm guessing like most remote-controlled choppers, they probably aren't the most durable. I know the laser-tag helicopters we bought on the office didn't survive the FW office crew
It seems buying one of these striker helicopters is a crap shoot when it comes to batteries. Buy one from WalMart and crash it and return it for an exchange there is a good chance you'll notice a difference in performance for the exact same toy. I got lucky and recently (finally) got one with a good battery and it flies very well for an acceptable amount of time. For those having trouble flying the striker here is some advice. Use the trim when you first lift off, get used to it as you will trim every time you fly and even during flight. Be very ginger with the controls as they are sensitive, slow and smooth is the secret. Also the little choppers don't like turning to the left so you'll have a tendency to go into a wall every time. With practice and patience you'll figure it out. I like flying mine around the living room when my wife is totally into her favorite show or when she's in the kitchen I'll do a fly-by and check the meatloaf. She's a trooper but I know it irritates her, lol!
I can agree with that to a degree and my logic only comes from the fact that it's only 6 inches long and flying in a room somewhere in your house. I can't see them holding a battery big enough to last more than 5 minutes (which is about what I'm getting). And I completely agree with what can one expect for $20.
