Finally a chopper I can actually fly! – Rechargeable 3.5-CH R/C Helicopter with Gyroscope (IR Remote/6 x AA) Reviews

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

Pros:
I really like this little RC helicopter. When these things first came out a few years back, they were styrofoam and were very tricky to fly - I spent a lot of time crashing into the walls, and up into the ceiling. With this unit the "109", I was able to hover easily and steadily the very first time. The controls did what they should do, and for the first time I have a helicopter that I can actually steer, hover and fly.
Cons:
I'm not sure what 3.5 channels means...but this helicopter can only rotate (spin around/turn), hover or fly ahead or backwards...there is no "side to side". There IS a "trim" knob for the rotation...perhaps that's the ".5" part?
Other:
Also, it's made of a much sturdier plastic rather than foam..and the blades can "swing" loosely, independent of their other side, and so this surely must help prevent damage when hitting a wall. You still crash, but not nearly as "violently" as the older "fixed" blade models.
Bottomline:
Well worth the price.
