In today’s review, I want to tell my readers about an interesting stunt toy. It’s about a remote-controlled helicopter.
The toy is delivered in a cardboard box with a small window on the front, which is covered with transparent plastic. The box contains information about the manufacturer and model, which is located inside. On the back surface there is also an image of a toy.
The package includes: helicopter, remote control, charging cable and instructions.
The helicopter looks elegant, as it flies, unless of course you know how to control it. But more on that later. The case is made in a nice white color with small black accents. The design of the toy is quite attractive. Everything looks plausible. There is a cabin, blades, tail and other components, everything is like a real helicopter.
The helicopter has a compact size and easily fits in the palm of your hand. The length from nose to tail is 19 cm, and the height is 10 cm. The helicopter weighs 50 grams. The model is made of metal and plastic parts. The blades of the helicopter are made of flexible plastic, so they absorb well when falling.
When you take the toy in your hands for the first time, you get the impression that the helicopter is very fragile and will break quickly. However, this is just a first impression. In fact, the toy is very hardy, it has repeatedly fallen from a great height, since I do not manage it very cleverly;)) Pleasantly surprising, the toy received only a few scratches from falls.
To control the helicopter, the kit comes with a white remote control on a wide stable stand, which resembles a joystick. Management in theory is very simple, for this you need to press the button on the remote control and by tilting your hand up the helicopter should smoothly gain height. Turning his hand to the left, he should fly to the left, respectively, turning to the right he will fly to the right, tilting down he will correspond to the given direction. However, in practice things do not go so smoothly. The hardest thing is to get used to and learn how to smoothly lift the helicopter into the air, for this you need to gently press the key on the remote control and gently tilt your hand up, and most importantly, do not make too sudden movements, otherwise your helicopter will become a real “kamikaze”. Making turns and landing smoothly is also quite difficult. You get used to the controls only after a while, but then it is simply impossible to tear yourself away from the toy.
The helicopter itself has a built-in battery, which lasts approximately 15–20 minutes for a flight. Yes, this is not enough to play enough with a toy. However, you can recharge the helicopter directly from the remote control. The remote has a charging cable. The helicopter charges quickly enough to fully charge the toy will take approximately 15–20 minutes. The remote control runs on five AA batteries. Remote control distance is 10 meters. Further, the helicopter is especially reluctant to obey commands from the remote control.
The toy flies almost silently, as it has a small mechanism. The helicopter has special effects that are activated on the remote control. To do this, there are two large buttons on the top of the remote control. Pressing them on either side of the helicopter’s nose will turn on the searchlights and a small light in the tail that flashes blue and red. At night, the helicopter looks very impressive.
Summing up, I would like to say that as the first radio-controlled helicopter, this is what you need. Yes, it takes a little getting used to the controls, but it won’t take long. While driving, you will definitely get a lot of positive emotions. Such a helicopter is suitable for both children and adults, and it can also be considered as an original gift. Most importantly, when buying this or a similar model, be aware that this is a budget model that is devoid of numerous functions and large dimensions.
