Very strong helicopter

I must say this was my first helicopter I was so amazed how strong it was. I had it for 3 to 4 weeks . Not good for a young child believe me .. I put it through so much finally it just broke down I fixed in and learn so much, it's just keeps on flying still not going to give up on it . In the house so much power clashed so many times never broke one wing but stabilizer. I got almost 15 minutes at a times flying it. But outside in the wind no good at all kept going with the wind had to shut down the power then it would fall down hard. Definitely a 4 star in my opinion very thought toy..

Lasted about a week, waste of money

Bought the copter for the look and name (tough copter). Didn't last. Battery life is terrible. Lasts about 5 minutes of real flight time, after it can't take off. After a few bumps, now can't take off at all. Yep, lost my money.

One flight

Mine was blue but same maker.This helicopter is fantastic in the box.Big and impressive.Got off to one flight and destroyed it self. Lower blade stopped working and that was that.Main gear broke.Sad to put a great design in the garbage. The Protocol is a waste of money.

Great Heli!

I love this Heli! But it's VERY hard to fly inside!! You defiantly need ALLOT of room! I brought it outside once and and went maybe 20 feet in the air and just stopped and fell to the concrete. And it broke it's landing skid and that's pretty much it. But it's very awesome! I wouldn't recommend this for a beginner. If you have experience with a heli then this would be a great heli for you.

Tough little chopper!

I bought this for something to play with while waiting for the weather to warm up and take my RCs outside and am quite impressed. This is a great heli for the price and I have already had lots of fun with it, even crashing. The tail rotor is the only thing that has come off so far and it just popped back on and I was flying again. The only downside is you only get 10 minutes of flight time on a 2 hour charge, but I think I will try to rig up a quick change system and either get more batteries or see if the battery is inter-changeable with a different type. Great value though!

It flys!

Bought a different brand and had to take it back. Replaced it with this copter and flew it after just a few tries. I've had several crashes into walls etc. and the only thing I've had to do was straighten the landing gear. Crashed it from about 15-20 feet up yesterday and fell into the snow. The resulting water made it do some funny things for a while so avoid getting it wet. Took the cover off, unhooked and dried connections and it started right back up. Fun chopper and fairly easy to fly. Good value for the money.

protocol toughcopter

this remote control helicopter is really tough,for its price incredible value,as the name says very tough,i have crashed mine a few times the only thing that has broken was one blade,they give you spare ones anyway,in all honesty i have had so much fun with this helicopter i have now purchased another,

  • from Regina, SK

Not bad at all

It is better than I expected for the money. Yes, you need to be careful, drop the power when you are in trouble. I haven't broken anything yet. Full charge takes about 2 hrs. Lasts about 5-6 min. I enjoy using it anyway.

  • from Vancouver, BC

This product is terrible

I had to return this after it broke the same day used..[...]

Christmas gift for my son. Broke on first flight.

  • from Kirkland, QC

Bad Design

The rotor in the back broke from the first flight. Using the spare rotor, it also broke. It is by no means a tough helicopter. Will true turn to store.

Protocol "Tough-Copter" rc helicopter

"Tough-Copter" broke within about five minutes of first-use. All it takes is one fall from only a few feet in the air. While it comes with a few spare parts it needs to come with many spare parts. Be prepared to purchase many repair kits from Protocol to keep this toy in the air. This helicopter should be renamed the "Fragile-Copter". It does need to be re-engineered out of more durable materials.
