I love it! Review by Jesse
I have been through a dozen little helis and then catastrophically destroyed an expensive heli on my first try. I then saw this little rugged drone demo'd in a hobby shop and bought it. I have had nothing but joy learning on it. Sometimes I can carefully maneuver it around people and all over my tiny living room and then accidentally jog the power and launch it into a wall or down the stairs into the basement - but the copter just keeps ticking! I have gone through the extra set of blades and spent a week with 4 very roughed-up blades letting my children and extended family play (and crash it) a hundred times. The worn blades pop-off when hitting walls - or utility poles outside, but the replacement blades stay on quite well. I just purchased a $2.50 replacement set of blades and it is as good as new-out-of-the-box. Best r/c experience I have had and everybody loves it - kids and adults alike. (Posted on 7/18/14)
great product Review by Bill
easy to use, so small you can fly in anywhere indoors. really well done (Posted on 6/2/14)
A BLAST to fly Review by Thomas
This tiny flying toy is a whole lot of fun, even if you crash it as often as I do. With a (very) steady hand, this can fly in a large living room with a high (15' or better) ceiling. It's not easy to fly, but because of its size you have a whole lot more time to correct your flight, or catch it before it smashes itself. (Posted on 5/11/14)
great helicopter Review by hankdatank
Flies like a charm, and is stable enough to fly down my halway into my bedroom. tons of fun. The only problem i had was the blades chiping to quickly. If the heli can not get off the ground check to see if the b blades are in the b spot and the a blades in the a spot. i had this problem but figured it out. FUN! (Posted on 5/7/14)
Great Fun - some misunderstanding.. Review by James
This thing flys amazing! Crazy fast for how small it is. The blades do tend to pop off when you crash, but this helps in not damaging the quad. They are cheap to replace if you lose them too. It hovers pretty well for how small and agile it is, might need occasional trimming.

I wanted to clarify a couple things from other reviewers
1- they do sell replacement batteries, the canopy is easy to remove and replacing the battery is easy
2- if all the blades are spinning and you have no lift you put them on wrong. The quad and the blades have "a" or "b" on them, simply match them up.

I have crashed this many times.. And did manage to break one of the led lights : ( its so small I'm not going to attempt to fix, still flys anyway. Wasn't shocked I broke something.. Was going full speed in my small living room (don't recommend unless you are really good). For $40 this thing is definitely worth it!! So much fun! (Posted on 4/27/14)
Great Flyer but Disposable Review by Red Baron
This is a great little Flyer but when the battery goes you can.t do anything with the unit except throw it away. You can.t replace the battery without destroying the coptor. It is a $40.00 disposable coptor. Had I known this I would not have purchased this unit there are a lot of good coptors that fly great for less money and not disposable. I will never buy another one of their products. You are not being fair with your customers by not mentioning this. Thank you very much. (Posted on 3/17/14)
This is so cool! Review by GS
Just picked one of these up for my 85 year old father who has never flown anything RC in his life but he has always been interested since I have been flying planes and copters for years. That being said, within a day he has been flying small circles around the coffee table and even bigger ones around the front room. Orientation is easy with the led lights and charging is a snap. Overall a great buy and will buy one for myself soon just to pass some time during this brutal Michigan winter. (Posted on 2/7/14)
Perfection Review by Crazy Bob
Love this little thing. Gives me hours of joy in the house and garage. The time I've had on this has improved my flying outside with my HP Heli Quad. It took me a while to transition from airplanes to quads. But the time was worth it... having sooo much fun.
Reliable, durable, fun... what more could we ask?

Great buy! Review by Louie
I was picking up paint at HP for my 35cc gee bee and saw one of the employees playing around with this near the register, and it was an instant sell. Playing with this thing right now makes me realize that I ought to be flying more often and not just building. This thing is gonna get me into quad copters now, argh another addiction, hahaha. But I love it. This thing is stable, and it sounds like a mad fly on steroids, lol (Posted on 1/1/14)
problems, it won't fly Review by morockpow
Pls come into store so we can help you. Matt

I brought the Proto for my grandson for Xmas and it won't fly! The two gray blades lift it but the black blades dont seemed to have enough power to go with the gray blades? I tried trimming it, charging the battery, re-setting the gyro, changing the blades, trimming it, trimming sucks everyone it having a blast and the one I got for my grandson doesn't work! The reviews are great, but what happened to his? Is there something I left out? All it does it lift one side until the other blades hit that it! (Posted on 12/27/13)
indoor fun! Review by GQ
Bought this today when I was picking up a part for my outdoor quad. Fly's great and is easy to fly. The controller feels a little small making it slightly harder to control but I have managed to mostly overcome that. (Posted on 12/26/13)
