Will Not recommend to but this product

I bought this product for my 9 year nephew on his birthday. The main problem with this helicopter was, as soon as you decrease the throttle for landing it fall down instantly on the ground. Even the take off was not as smooth as the older helicopters used by my nephew (though they were made in Germany not China and bit costly as compare to this one).

Anyhow, I would suggest to spend some extra bucks instead of buying this product.

Here, I will not forget to mention about the great on-time delivery of the products at my registered address by flipkart. 10 points to flipkart on them.

The most stable indoor chopper available

Read through the reviews of this chopper at Flipkart. Though i did not buy this product from Flipkart, however, would love to give my recommendation.
Chopper falls as soon as you decrease the throttle: Am trying not to laugh at this, yes all RC choppers fall as soon as you decrease the throttle. Specially the indoor ones, cause they have a lesser wing span so the lift is not that well sustained. Please practice the throttle control & you will be able to keep it in the air.
Chopper doesn't take off & spins continuously: Please take the chopper to an indoor spacious area, start the ro...

Chopper doesn't take off & spins continuously: Please take the chopper to an indoor spacious area, start the rotors, on the right top of your control, you have a trim adjust wheel, move it up or down and see this would negate the spinning. Then your chopper would be totally stable and you can hover it for as long as the battery permits.
Pros:
the most stable indoor chopper i have flown ever
really responsive controls
built quality is good, can take hard landing impacts well
Gyro really works wonders (remember to turn the chopper on, keep it at a flat surface for 2-3 mins, before flying, to get the most of the Gyro)
the most ideal RC chopper for beginners

Cons:
Lights are annoying, wish there was a switch to turn them off
Battery span is short, but not too short, i have kept this one in the air for about 8 mins
No spare main rotors provided, with indoor flying, those take the maximum toll
Be a bit careful in putting the charging knob into the chopper, its too fragile

I would strongly recommend this one for RC enthusiasts. A word of caution, like the box pack says, its true, this is not a toy. This needs a whole lot of practice to master. However worth investing time & money due to its stability & responsive controls

Very bad

I had purchased this for my son. As soon as I opened the product I knew something was not right since there was a noisy sound when I whirred it up. Also the chopper would not reach a reasonable height. I have in the past owned some of Syma helicopters and have had absolutely no problems. So it is not anything to do with my perception.

I then took a torch and examined the gears carefully since , if charged, the transmission is the only place where there can be a problem. On close observation I noticed that a gear tooth was broken. That was where the loss of power was coming from.

I immediately called Flipkart and requested for a replacement. Flipkart was prompt and intimated the seller. Someone from there called me and enquired about the problem. I was advised to take it to Forum, where there is a Modelart showroom. I refused and instead asked for a replacement delivery. He finally accepted for a refund and in a couple of days the Flipkart courier person came and picked up the product.

Flipkart has taken care of the customer, but I was sure disappointed by the quality of this product.

supereb flier

Dont go by some bad reviews this is excellent product, its like you are giving world class football shoes but dont know how to play football.

Some tips to first time fliers, practice , practice to hovering before taking it for full flight.
We tied a long cocunut broom stick at the bottom middle of the stand with cellotape so that when it touces the ground it wont flip and fall.

with few hovering sessions you should be able to control the heli comfortably

happy flying... looking forward for such innovative products from flipkart.

The best 3 channel heli you can get at this price!!

I got this several months back through flipkart for 1500(yes the price keeps changing..sadly)
Before buying this I researched a bit about RC helicopters on the internet and found that the best heli for this purpose was Syma 107G ...easy to fly..easy to learn without breaking much sweat..and super stable and cheap as well. However, Syma have no sellers in India, the best I could have done is order it via third party sellers or ebay but I am not a big fan of shopping via shady sites or sellers and especially when the RC market in India is so underdeveloped.

However, Syma have no sellers in India, the best I could have done is order it via third party sellers or ebay but I am not a big fan of shopping via shady sites or sellers and especially when the RC market in India is so underdeveloped.
Anyways, a few days later this heli caught my sight..exact same design..exact same controller! I decided to order it straightaway from flipkart.The heli was delivered within two days.Kudos to flipkart for that :)
Now when I opened it , I found it to be very small but sturdily built...this was high quality for a throwaway price.I have never seen such a well built RC toy before. This is very similar to the Syma 107G indeed..the only difference is that the body is attached via plastic screws and the battery looks a little different.
Having never flown rc helis before(I never even had a rc as a kid :P) I would have congratulated myself if I were just to make it get off the ground.But after an evening of practice..I was hovering around,flying loops and also crashing a lot...pure 3 channel joy!
(3 ch allows you to do go up and down-throttle,back and forth -pitch ,left and right-yaw...apparently the .5 in 3.5 ch is for the controller LED and is just a marketing term)

The metal chassis takes crashes especially well, the propellers are a bit fragile though but till now they are intact.The gyroscope works wonders for the flight..its super stable sometimes too stable for your liking as you sometime find it hard to go forward without the gyro autocorrecting itself and flying up a bit.As stated this is an indoor aircraft and can't handle much wind.However, I have flown it outdoors under slight breeze and it handles it well.
The controller needs 6 AA batteries to operate and you have to supply them yourselves(any AA battery will do) .It is responsive and even though it is infrared based I had no trouble flying it indoors under direct light.Don't take it out in strong sunlight though that really screws up the controls.You can charge the heli directly from the controller,I avoided that as it easily eats up the battery charge.I always charged it via the USB cable(for some reason the wire length is quite short...I wonder why they would skip on that) It takes half an hour to fully charge the heli battery and gives up to 5-8 minutes of flight time (hovering takes the most battery usage)

If you are having troubles with the stabilisation I suggest keeping the heli on a flat surface after turning it on...this allows the gyro to orient itself correctly. You can also use the trim knob to correct if the heli keeps going forward/backward/left/right itself.

At some point while flying (if you get too adventurous) you will break the main rotors or some other parts(I broke the main rotor shaft while flying outdoors)..as I pointed out this is very similar to Syma107G helicopter and there are spare parts readily available from Syma. You can use those parts without an issue. For some reason Modelart don't have a website on their own .They have done a nice job with the instructions manual (which was a shortcoming for the Syma)

Although the manual recommends against it...it is also possible to mod(ify) the heli..you can check the mods for Syma107G on youtube..they are readily applicable to this as well.
So all in all a very nice RC helicopter.Here are the pros and (Very few) cons:
pros:
1)Easy to fly for a beginner(with minor adjustments)
2)Battery life is above average.
3)Super stable..gyro stabilisation works wonders.
4)Very sturdy..crashed it a thousand times without major damage(ohh well everything has a limit ;))
5)It's super cheap..there are helis with similar performance and they will cost a bomb!

cons:ummm...
1)Very short wire length for the charger :P
2)Hard to get official modelart parts (but then you can use the Syma 107G ones)

It may fly ok, but what if you need spares?

After experimenting with some toy-grade helis, the best option that I have come across are the ones made by WLtoys. Very reasonably priced and you get all the spares too, main motor @ approx rs.200, tail motor @rs.150, main gear @rs. 60 and so on (that includes the shipping). You need availabilit...

Poor quality / unreliable / delicate

While this device will work fine till it is in good shape. But after 1 to 5 crashes/collissions/falls, it will only be your table show-piece. If you want this kind of quality, you can easily get in any local market for Rs. 500 or less. Dont't get carried away by the flowery details / nice picture... (View complete review)

Good one

The helicopter is good. The flight is smooth. Easy for kids 10 .
Adults can enjoy too!
