    Some One Tell Me About XMas Helicopters

    I want one and I have a budget of $50 which is what the guy at the kiosk sales a nice one for.

    I don't want to paint it or collect them, I want to fly it around inside the house and torment the cat and dog, crash it into walls and such.

    Any experiences?

    My ground school instructor once told me that flying a helicopter is like trying to balance a marble on your pecker.


    Not sure how that applies here, but take it as you will.

    Make sure the landing pads aren't plastic because it will break the first time you (crash) land it.

    I got one for Christmas one year, from the mall kiosk. My dog hated it. I'd fly it really low to try to buzz her eyes and she snatch it out of the air with one quick chomp.

    My kid has this one.



    I think it was like $30. Had it for about two months and it works great. Charge lasts about 7 minutes.
