With a little help, this plane is a lot of fun and challanges even adults. – Handheld Control Wired Rotary Airplane (4 x AA) Reviews

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

Pros:
This toy plane has great potential for challanging each other to land safely and to make difficult maneuvers. I will use rechargeable batteries with it also. Landing is the most challanging part. I really like the design and will have fun improving upon it.
Cons:
The cable is just a little short to really have some fun but it still challanges you to a safe landing. If the landing gear is removed, it makes the front end a little lighter which aids in landing safely.
Other:
I would consider making some parts out of a lighter material such as styrofoam which will aid in flight. A slightly longer cable would also help to make more realistic maneuvers and landings. This toy is a great start to learning how to use a gas powered plane that is tethered. It teaches you how to follow the plane in a circle and land it properly.
Bottomline:
I would reccomend this plane to anyone who is considering moving up to a tethered gas power model. It certainly brings the joy of flight to a young child. I hope adults will inspire young minds to try flying this toy and show a child how interesting flying is.
