    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    -Very aerodynamic- will glide for a LONG time
    -Pretty sturdy compared to what I expected
    -Makes a neat gift
    -Lack of instructions is not a problem
    -There's a whole bunch of them!
    -The price is a steal

    Cons:

    -Does not flap its wings for very long
    -Can be kinda gimmicky to construct
    -Some pieces were accidentally glued together

    OtherThoughts:

    I was at first worried it would be complicated to construct them out of the received pieces, but lack of instructions proved not to be a problem- you can make one in under a minute if you try :)
    There were some minor problems during construction, such as the wings being accidentally glued together at the edges, but these were easy to fix.
    I expected it to flap its wings slower (thus, flying faster), but it seems to expend all its energy in just a few seconds. It does glide VERY far after that.
    It is pretty big when constructed.
    Considering you get 10 of these in the package, you can, for example, gift a bunch of them to your friends- that's what I'm going to do :)

    Bottomline:

    Neat flier/glider for that price. Although they're not working quite as I expected them to, I can easily recommend this flying gadget :)
