A good present for a future pilot. – Solar Powered Wooden Helicopter Reviews

posted by luizffreire on 01/30/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The solar panel works perfectly. The blades rotate in sunlight. It is not necessary batteries. This is a great gift for a future pilot. Any child, or even pilots, like a helicopter like this.
Cons:
The wood was not sandpapered properly, leaving some barbs that may end up hurting any child. The axis of the main rotor shaft slightly twisted causing friction with the timber preventing the rotor to rotate. I solved the problem by sanding the helicopter. The skids are made of wood without resistance and can be easily broken if handled by some careless child.
Other:
Still, this remains a great children or helicopter pilots.
Bottomline:
A good gift, but I wish it were a little cheaper, or a little higher quality.
