RC Helicopter...

Guys & gals,

I'm looking for an indoor helicopter I can use and abuse in my living room, around the house, etc. Chances are that I will lose interest in it after a couple of weeks, but want to try one out anyhow. Anybody have any good or bad reviews they'd like to share before I go spending 30 or 40 bucks on some POS??? and FWIW- I have already PM'd Cody Rules.

Thanks,

DBuck

i tried that one and returned it the next day. no real control; only up, down, and turn. by the time you get it stabilized and trimmed, battery runs out.

no problem.

but I will say it was fun the day I had it. you can learn to take off and land softly, and try to hover.

http://www.raidentech.com/newmimorarec.html this is the one i got.... broke the first one pretty easily, but glued the piece in place that broke on the 2nd and love it. up down, left/right, forward/backward. so it's 3 channel. it's a blast to play with, if you get one, get at least a 3 channel
