Reviews havent been great, apparently control is dodgy.

great little chopper, the dog doesn't think so though....

Good price

Sorry to sound thick does this crown with the handheld remote control thingy??

Good price for the little helicopter

Recommend these, sturdier than you'd think.

My 7yr old received this from Santa, it's not broke yet so must be good!

This looks identical to the one I got in Poundstretcher a couple of months ago.

Very easy to fly and durable when it comes to crashes.

Good price.

just got 1 from amazon £13.99 inc delivery more reliable me thinks

Still surprised how good these are for the money. Going strong even with the kids playing with it

Don't know if you're aware but you can get almost every part for peanuts off of amazon/eBay.... Unless he PROPERLY bust it :D. So far we've just had a few blades and a tail fin break, I think the blades were just over a quid delivered and the tail came with some other bits and bobs

These are not kids toys, they are toys that kids get so that their dads can 'show' them how they work!

fantastic little thing for all ages. crashed dozens of times but still works flawlessly!

Agreed, great item. I have brought about 6 of these for presents and they are very stable and excellent for beginners. Parts are also available with ease for those really bad accidents.
The Gyro keeps it very stable and you can annoy the wife no end when she is trying to watch Eastenders :-)

Criticisms I have of this are...

1/ It's pretty slow - not got enough attitude (forward/backward) control to get quick movement.
2/ Related - there's no "trainer" mode. In fact, this pretty much is stuck in trainer mode so maybe there's no expert mode?!
3/ You can't turn and go forward at the same time - you've got to let off one to push the other.

Other than that - other comments are right. It's pretty hard to break, and even if you succeed you can get most of the parts on eBay. It's hard to directly compare these things with each other. This one's key feature is that it's got gyro direction stability control - if you tell it to point in a direction (and trim it a bit), it'll stay pointing in that direction regardless of other movement. Cheaper ones spin because you go up/down (e.g. increase rotor speed so create more force trying to spin it).

Best one of these I ever had was the Silverlit Spy Cam Heli - same features as this but with a built in video camera. Only problem was that the electrics (gyro?) failed and it became uncontrollable. They seem to have stopped making them.

Sorry, this seller is on vacation, so this item is unavailable for purchase.

Are these not legit syma then? Just that mine will go up/down and forward/turn at the same time???

Sellers feedback would suggest they are legit.

Cheap as chips so little point have cheap variants

Seller away (although says 1st Jan) so can't purchase :-(

Best Christmas Present I got! Hours of fun!

Sorry, this seller is on vacation, so this item is unavailable for purchase.

Paid £16 for this as a present for someone.

It's a really simple control mechanism, quite robust and quite stable.

Bought this for the manwife for Christmas and he loves it. Seems very good. I would take note of the fact that the controller takes *6* AAs (that's probably normal for these sorts of toys these days, but it took me by surprise anyway).

I've been having great fun with the Clas Ohlson Spycam helicopter but managed to shear a main blade on second flight. It came with one spare of each blade but it won't be long before I have another spectacular crash.

Do any guru's know which model they rebadged and where more spares can be had? Failing that, how successful am I likely to be if fitting blades of slightly different length and profile? (Sorry to go off topic slightly).

I can definitely recommend these little machines for entertainment value. Voted hot, and spares widely available too.

The remote can act as a charger, so needing 6 does make some sense.

Hmm... I love these too, and also bought one "for my son", and then 5 more as gifts, and it was totally worth it!

Great toy, paid about £30 for mine 2 years ago. Very robust unlike those foam ones - Heat added!! thanks

Bought 2 just before Xmas, 1 for me and 1 for my bro and think its brill. Great bit of fun
Heat added

these are on amazon for £13.99 as someone pointed out (I agree, more reliable), ordered one for a friend the other day because he was always using mine

Good helicopter for the price.. But very basic you want fun then buy carbon and 4ch helicopter... Will cost you £ 25 - 40 but different is a huge.. I have already 8 helicopters so I know it :-) If you want good 3ch buy a ninja twister carbon version price £15-25 in my model shop (Newport) is price £20... I get used one from ebay £10

Not an expert mate but I would think that the tolerances are tight as surely everything is "set up" to balance the flight??? Perhaps see if theres any model number on the unit and then google for a forum?? These things do tend to have a following of avid users who may be better placed to advise... sorry I cant be more helpful, I only have one of these...... well I say its mine

got one for xmas, legs on one side broke on first use, luckily the other broke soon after so it lands flat again! other than that it's taken loads of damage and still works, good fun

great helicopter but the back propeller stopped working in 2 weeks. Now it only goes up and down

Why expired? The listing is still there? Personally I preferred the Amazon purchase route for £14.99, but this deal started me looking in the first place so hot from me.

Because the item is not purchasable.

... And you can buy one of these for each amazon.co.uk/Con…s_1 for under a fiver, and control them by tilting your iPhone or Android device... Lose the chunky remote that comes with it, far easier to stear, makes it even more fun =O) We're using the phone chargers to charge the copters and these remotes now.
