waste of money

bought 2 of these for christmas gifts, 1 for sure doesn't work and will be returned. haven't heard if the 2nd one works or not. but either way - DO NOT buy or go to a r/c dealer for better quality goods. you would expect in working condition right out of the box for the price you are paying. do you get that with these - NO. returning 1 for sure and maybe both if it to also doesn't work.

Cheap

Easy to fly but if it crashes, chances are one of the lower blades will break.

Great heli for beginers

This is a great r/c heli for the absolute beginer, which I happen to be. You need to be patient, learn to hover before attempting turning and travelling forward or backward. Charging and flying time is as advertised. I've crash landed on carpet numerous times, hit a ceiling fan and have yet to break anything. So far I've only used it indoors and wouldn't recommend as an outdoor heli due to it's light weight, I've purchased a larger heli as well but haven't tried that one. As far as performance I find this as a good product and have'nt been disappointed. I would recommend this product to learn how to fly the heli before moving to a larger craft.

Great toy

I have 3 different helicopters and this is the most used of all of them. It charges much faster (about 20 minutes instead of 1 hour or more) than the larger ones but flies about the same amount of time. It is a perfect size for indoor use and regardless of what people say it takes a lot of abuse, considering... High speed rotors hitting a wall or worse a chair leg etc will break a plastic rotor...you need to understand that's the way it is and order spared parts with early on. I have 2 to share parts and have another spare part kit on order most of the time. Given all that it has been a very fun toy for the whole family. Just buy spare parts! ;)

Even at [a low price] the value was not there

I was able to order one of these during the boxing week sales.[...] Picked it up last night, got it home, put in 6 new AA energizer max batteries, and charged it up. Didn't take long to charge, roughly 20 minutes as indicated, and then we were off. Once I had the trim set properly, I was able to control it fairly easily...for maybe 3 minutes, at which point it barely had enough juice to hover a foot from the ground.... So I charged it again...20 minutes later, we are off, hoping to get more flying time as the trim was already adjusted.. this time I was air borne even less than the first time... So I charged it again...20 minutes later, and it can't even get off the ground....I'd like to note that at each charging, I waited for the green light to indicate charging was done. So at this point, I wasn't very pleased, so I returned it to my nearest store for a refund. It was fun for the few minutes of flight I got, but that was it...

Terrible product - do not buy!

Broke within a few mins. The blades are literally brittle and chip off when they strike something hard - until they break off entirely! Unlike other products have plastic blades that have some bend to them. The Protocol units make you think they are sturdy with metal bodies but you don't know how brittle the blades are. The metal body means that it only can fly for 5 mins after a charge and it drops like a rock to the ground. Plus it doesn't fly right.. it spins around no matter how much you adjust the dial - which makes it crash into things all that much easier. All in all a recipe for disaster, and one sad 11yr old and one broken heli in a few mins. Protocol is Junk. Do not buy!

Great product!

Got this for Chrismas and haven't stopped playing with it! Super fun and fairly easy to control once you get the hang of it and adjust the spin according to the instructions. As for durability I've crashed it I don't know how many times and it still works. Hit the ceiling, walls, furniture, even the bottom of the tree lol! My only suggestion would be if you think its going to hit something let go of the throttle so the blades are free to pivot out of the way. All in all a good introduction to RC helicopters and a good way to gain the skills required before you move up to the big boys.
