    Been an RC fan for 30 years and this is the best item I have owned for the money. Tips to guarantee you'll love it too; buy multiple helis your bound to tear up the first one or have a mishap that will damage it(one was attracted to the dogs water dish and about the 4th time being completely submerged the PCB burned up, 2weeks and $10 put that one back into service with no other issues). Buy the tear drop flybar and 200mah batteries, the combination weight of the battery and stability with the better flybar makes 5-6mph winds no issues and enjoyable. Adjust the servo linkages to keep the controller trims neutral every time you replace rotating parts. Buy lots of parts to have them handy, they are crazy cheap and if they are slow boat shipped, where else can you get replacement parts shipped for 1--$6 for an RC and there are all kinds of parts for this guy out there. Unbelievably tough, let everyone try it, don't worry about them breaking your cool toy, get them hooked buy more. After you live with it and get good with it you can make them last and last. I have a particular go to V911 out of my group and it has tons of flight time on it and has gone for months without repairs and flys as good as new. Truly amazing China mad toy, they got this one spot on.

    This helicopter is great! I have very little experience with RC helicopters, and had it flying around my apartment right after getting it out of the box. I've had it about a week now, so I guess it hasn't really had time to 'mess up'. I'll start with the cons, and then move on the the pros. Cons: 1) The landing gear is really fragile. 2) The battery life is only about 4-6 minutes, depending on how aggressive I fly it. I bought an extra set of batteries, but to avoid burning the motors out (which I also bought an extra set of), I fly two batteries back to back, then let the motors cool off. 3) When I start flying it aggressively, the balance bar sometimes makes it go crazy for a few seconds. Pros: 1) I was not expecting it to fly so well since it wasn't expensive. I used to have a double rotor helicopter about 7 years ago that cost around $150 (it lasted maybe a week). The v911 kicks that helicopter's butt. 2) It has a very forgiving learning curve. I flew it in my small apartment and got used to just keeping it in the air and moving it to where I wanted it to go. I haven't flown it outside yet because of the weather, but I took it to a gym and it was a blast. 3) I didn't think I would be able to tell a difference between the two modes, but once I got it in the gym I switched it to mode 2 and was amazed at what all it could do. Since it is so light, it can move decently fast, but yet stop on a dime. I was expecting it to just hover and move slowly, but when I give it throttle and move the right stick forwards, it actually picks up some decent speed. 4) I've only crashed it a few times, but nothing has broken so far, even when it hit the wall at full speed. Summary: If you want to get into flying RC helicopters, or just want a small indoors heli, I would definitely suggest this thing. For the price of the overall setup, and the price of replacement parts, it is well worth the money. I suggest getting extra batteries- it is way too much fin to only fly for about 10 minutes, then wait an hour for them to charge. I would also get an extra main and tail motor, since they will eventually burn out.

    I have had this heli since Christmas 2013. Took about two weeks of flying a few minutes a day, and then it 'clicked'. And once that happens, it becomes a fantastic flying machine. This little thing is incredible. There is no comparison to the Syma 107G type birds. Although the Syma is a great beginner chopper, this one is the next step up. Control response is really good, there is plenty of power for how small it is. Once you get comfortable flying it, you can fly in up to about 5 mph winds. Not sustained winds, mind you. If you do an arcing dive left or right, you can take on bigger winds. With the 2.5 ghz radio, range seems to be over 300 feet. Any more and you wouldn't even be able to see it, let alone fly it. I lose sight of its direction of travel at about 200 feet. When you hit mode two it changes the rates, it becomes about twice as sensitive on the controls. It completely changes the bird! Its like having an entirely new bird, once you are ready to move up, its awesome. I fly mode two indoors to give me quicker responses etc. But flying it is so much fun, the gyros help immensely to keep it stable automatically. Batteries: You might get five minutes flying time from the supplied 120 mah batteries. One of mine arrived a dud. But no worries I ordered the 5 pack of 200 mah batts. Much longer flight times. The design of the batteries is really bad, however. If you dont put a piece of scotch tape to hold it in, sometimes the battery will fall out during flight. The charger is really cheap, and sometimes will not charge a battery because it still registers as 'full', when its not. You have to run that battery all the way down in the chopper, and then the charger will recognize it. Also, somewhere I read that you can only charge the batteries from the charger twice before you have to replace them. I bought a usb port that plugs into the ac outlet, for three dollars, and charge them with that. I have crashed this heli from over a hundred feet onto pavement, and it didnt hurt it at all. Crashed a hundred times or more. Flies the same as it did when new. Also, ordered another board for ten bucks, am going to use the servos etc for another indoor flyer. For ten bucks you get a board that has two servos built in, is 2.4 ghz, has a speed controller for motor etc. Overall fantastic helicopter, thanks!

    I originally got this for my wife as she loves my bigger birds but is scared to fly them. I figured id get her feet wet with this one. after doing the fine tuning and a few dabs of hot glue to hold wires in place, i let her go. this bird is extremely easy to fly and didn't require much adjustment to maintain a steady hover. even in 5-10 mph wind gusts it is very responsiverd i have ev for its size. this bird is probably the most durable i have even had/seen. she climbed to aprox 50' and started a steep dive into the wind... straight to the ground... it hit very hard, i thought it was done for.. upon inspection i only found scratches! NOTHING BROKE, the canopy didn't even come off.. this bird has been crashed into water, trees, chain link fences and has survived some serious impacts. the only thing i have had to replace is the flybar. i would recommend this lil guy to anyone and everyone who enjoys helis. me being what i consider a heli vet i even enjoy it.. get the fisheye swash and carbon main and the paddle flybar for an even more responsive mini!!!

    I bought the Syma 107 and for the money you absolutely CANNOT beat that thing. Wow. But after a while it does get a little monotonous flying around the house, so I sprung for the V911 after reading the reviews, and it's a hit. But challenging! I would say first that you probably should NOT start with this one. Start with the 107 or something similar. The 4-channel is a different animal all together, but fun in a different way. The 107, to me, is kind of mindless fun- just fly it around and land on stuff and decompress or impress the kids. The V911 makes you think a little bit. I'm still getting it down but with the ability to yaw and roll, banked turns are possible and a lot of fun. This seems like the perfect bridge to either bigger/more complex helis, or a cheap way to determine you are fine flying the little 3-chans around your house. But for the money, you cannot go wrong here.

    This little heli flies great, very stable and fun to fly. The one BIG deal is the repair factor. I started with an Air Hogs el cheapo, flew it forever. Then moved to Air Hogs Gyroblade and broke a blade in the first hour and returned it. Decided on V911 after many good reviews(and cost less than Airhogs), particularly about durability. The heli is durable but I have not been able to fly it for more than 2 days at a time due to repairs. second day I broke a blade(comes with replacements). Easy fix. Then the balance bar broke. thankfully I could get one from amazon quickly. Then wire to tail motor broke(check out maxoverkill mods some hot glue on motor wires may help) soldered tail motor wires(not too hard). Now my tail motor stopped working after a hard crash, new ones less than $9 but now I have to wait to get them. Parts are not very expensive but they can add up. I started with a $36 heli and controller, and after all the parts I have bought I am in for almost $60. If you purchase this you may as well buy a pack of spare parts(motors, blades, connector buckles, etc...) and learn to solder, get some tweezers, visit the eye doctor. Do not buy this for a child unless said child loves to do tricky repairs(13 yo +) between repairs(which you will be doing) and heartbreak(dealing with a out of commission heli) it could be a hassle.

    This little bird is a blast to fly and at a very reasonable price! Shipping was one week after i ordered it. When you fly this thing you have to be easy on the sticks because even on mode 1 it has great speed. So if you just got this i suggest flying on mode 1 to get the hang of things before switching over to the faster mode 2. I watched a video of some german guy testing it out in a parking lot and he is abusing the crap out of this little thing! He points it towards the ground and lets go as the heli smacks the ground and flops around like a fish before it rights itself and flies away he even drop kicked it about 5 times! One important thing if you get the toilet bowl effect like i did, pull the tail blade out a little as it is being pressed too hard against the motor. Overall i give this heli 5 stars for excellent shipping and an awesome product! Thank you syma heli!

    This was a birthday gift and what an incredible little toy it is! The V911 performs extremely well considering its size and price. As with other toys, it takes some practice to become familiar with the radio controls as they are or can be quite sensitive according to which mode chosen to fly in. I am amazed at how durable this model is as it has made many a crash landing into and onto various pieces of furniture with little or no devastating damage. I have had to reassemble the main rotor and upper rotor linkages due to an unfortunate meeting with a kitchen chair, however. Relying on the owners manual pictures for repairs leaves lots to be desired. Sketchy and poorly rendered pictures for certain. Eventually I assembled it as it was and note to self, avoid kitchen chairs at all costs! The V911 comes with two small batteries and a charger. Flight times per battery is perhaps 3 minutes or so with a recharge time of approximately 20 to 25 minutes each. I would recommend purchasing the 5 larger batteries which are inexpensive and provide a bit longer flight times. Also inexpensive, the rebuild parts pack should be considered if you have heavy kitchen chairs in your house! All-in-all, I have enjoyed this little helicopter and the fun it has provided an old feller like me is worth it all!

    For the price, MAN, you get a nice toy and controller. I have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical that it would work and hold up as others described. It DOES! Boy is this thing fun and responsive. Recommend a big open area with grass for first-time use and practice. Use the 'easy' setting (I think it's "1" on the controller) first. Setting 2 is VERY touchy, but wicked fun/fast! We had this thing EASILY 200' in the air. Had crows and starlings chasing it. The kids got a kick out of that. The range is phenomenal! Controls are different than your typical 3 channel gyro, so it takes some getting used to. But it's like driving an automatic and a standard - once you settle in, it's second-nature, and relatively easy to switch between the two. (We also have a SYMA S107G.) Highly recommend picking up some replacement parts and batteries. This thing is so addictive, you don't want to wait for a replacement blade to be shipped if yours breaks. It is durable, but not indestructible...

    I was into RC cars for many years, helicopters were just to expensive back then. Bought an indoor copter a few months ago and was amazed. Had the bug to get one for outside and saw this. Surely not, the videos can't be real !! Well, it's all true. This little dude is a blast to fly. I am approaching my golden years, and have not held a remote in quite a while, picked it up pretty fast. Still get a bit confused when it's coming toward me...went left when I should have gone right, put it into a tree, forgot the throttle stays when you let go. Yea, don't do that, it's breaks the rotors right off. Easy fix and cheap too. This little dude is pretty tuff, in most cases, if you let go of the right controls, it will recover itself and hover. But, for those times where a tree comes up a little fast, just kill the throttle and let it crash, it's so light weight, it will fall to the ground just fine. Get one now, just order the extra parts with all the dog bones and blades from the U.S., and enjoy.

    I've had more fun with this RC Helicopter than any other RC model anything! I feel like a kid every time I take it out. I've been extremely aggressive flying it into trees and walls and the ground and even the pool!! Yeah I put it in the pool and it still flies. Amazing little bird!! I've put at least 150 flights on this one so far. Now I've added parts and had to do some fixes but they are minimal and it's part of the fun really. The one part that is essential is the black delrin plastic main gear, it took all the vibration away that mine came out of the box with. I got some extra batteries and then burnt up the main motor pretty quick. I suggest a 10 min wait period between flights to let the motor cool off. It's so light that it does not break on impact like many other RC helicopters of a larger scale, excellent for learning a 4ch control setup and a good step from the dual main blade versions out there. Much more nimble and difficult to fly than a 3ch or 3.5ch bird but not so difficult that a newbie couldn't pick it up. Does not take much wind and can be easily lost behind the neighbors house into the swamp on your first outdoor flight thinking "wow this thing really gets up there" If your debating this still I'm screaming at you right now... SPEND THE $40 AND HAVE A BLAST!!! If you outgrow it great!!! It will still be the most fun with $40 you've had in a while.

    I bought this V911 for the purpose to fly indoor as well as outdoors, its small size is just right for indoor flight. if you use a IR helicopter like the Syma S107 a very good helicopter but you could not fly it out doors in the sun. And so you need a 2.4 ghz 4 ch. like this V911. I put a 4 star rating because the stock radio controller is difficult to control the helicopter.. it takes practice to control it first you have to balance the swash plate which is not leveled. the first flight the helicopter flies backward. and sideways. Have to make adjustments on the control arm to make the heli take off in a stable hover position. I had alot and crashes to fix the level of the swash plate. the v911 is very durable to withstand a lot crashes. As I finally fix it, it hovers very good. However if you use the stock radio controller takes alot of practice to fly the V911 .. I found out that the v911 works better with the Turnigy 9x makes it easier to fly not mentioning the range distance is more than the stock radio. You have more control using a Turnigy 9x the way you want it to fly. The V911 can bind with the Turnigy 9x easy .. but caution is priority, you have to make adjustments on the Turnigy 9x first before turning on your V911. Set it up first before you fly or else you'll have the v911 runing in different directions with out even touching the stick. How to bind the V911 with the Turnigy 9x and setting it up watch it in You Tube This is very important. You will enjoy this V911 Helicopter. its fun to fly.

    A lot of fun, but it does not hover quite as well as it claims to. Also, the top weighted stabilizer bar is pretty fragile. It is a long bar and is only connected by thin plastic loop which cracked fairly quickly. Replacements are readily available, but still annoying. Last complaint: It is rated for outdoor use, but any kind of wind will carry off the heli. The gyro seems to accomidate to the wind after a couple seconds making it impossible to fight against a sustained breeze. That said, this is a lot of fun (for me and my dog) and can easily be flown indoors. I don't regret purchasing this, and will continue flying s long as I can!

    After over 25 years in the r/c hobby (my first cars were the Tamyia Grasshopper and Frog, then through Team Losi & Associated cars and trucks and presently running Traxxas Rustler VXL and Revo 3.3 nitro) I was finally given the chance to get in to the heli r/c hobby through a friend in a trade since I had a mountain bike he wanted and he had 2 450 t-rex copters he was looking to get rid of. I know how expensive the r/c heli hobby can be so my first plan was to get a cheaper heli and practice with it. I know simulations are the thing to get but I like actual experience especially if I want to fly outside. My first one was a Syma S033G which broke the second time in the air and after a few more attempts, the charger failed to charge anymore so it is a shelf queen right now. Also it was almost impossible to fly outside in even the slightest breeze, in the garage it would do ok but I wanted some outside fun. My friend told me that I should look in to the 4 channel micros maybe to get some experience. So after looking around I came across the V911 and read the reviews and looked at the youtube videos and figured I would give it a chance. I have to say that after learning to lift it off the ground on the first battery, it was a pleasure to actually learn how to hover and move it around in the garage. After a dozen or so battery charges, I deicided to go outside and I was amazed at how much control it has over the syma. I can actually fly this thing! Yes the wind will still affect it but it can recover with the right corrections pretty easily. I have enjoyed the V911 so much that I will probably get another one just to keep as a back-up. It seems to be well made and I have crashed it many times and I have yet to break it (knocking on wood). As far as the 2 t-rex 450's? they are still sitting on the shelf and they probably will be for some time since I am really enjoying my little V911! My luck I will take one out and break it on the first try and let it collect dust, haha. If you are looking for a cheap way to get in the hobby you cannot pass this heli up. I would give it 6 stars if I could.

    Such a fun little helicopter. I got this for my kid...and for my kid, I mean for myself :). Who says toys are only for kids! I get such a kick out of flying this around the house. I am still learning, and this thing has taken some MAJOR crashes with only minor permanent damage (I have managed to almost completely sever the wires at the back of the tail boom going to the tail motor (this was a result of a full speed banking turn into my wall and fireplace :) )...time will tell if they decide to break, but if they do, I'm sure I can repair it. Once you have this kit, you can then order replacement helis for about $19 shipped from other online vendors in China.The replacements are BNF which means bind and fly, so you will need a starter kit such as this one before you can enjoy the cheap copters. At that price, it almost doesn't make sense to make repairs. For any kid at heart who is thinking about this toy, I say DO IT! For the price of a dinner for 2 you can have a ton of fun around the house for hours on end!

    I've had several RC helicopters this size but never a 4 channel one. I had already mastered the flying 3 channel like the Syma S107 and controlling the helicopters had become instinctive. Well the learning curve for 4 channels is a steep one . You have to retrain your brain to make the heli turn with your left hand while at the same time keeping the throttle, also operated with your left hand, consistent. However, after a few hours it becomes a lot of fun. Even though this helicopter looks like it is very fragile, it is very sturdy. I crashed hard so many times that I cannot remember. The only thing that broke on me a couple times is the balance bar, so you may want to order a couple extra to keep on hand since they are cheap and the heli wont fly without it. One tip to avoid this... once you know you are going to crash cut the throttle all the way off as soon as possible as this will prevent the balance bar and the rotor from breaking.. This heli is much, much faster than the Syma 107. It will fly outdoors, but only in almost windless conditions. Even a breeze will not let this helicopter fly very stable because it is so light. The battery last longer than i expected, several minutes maybe 5-7 minutes? and they take more than 1 hour to charge; so I also recommend getting extra batteries. That way you can extend flight time and learn how to operate it quicker. I bough 5 for $6 on ebay and they work great, just make sure you get the right ones because there are two types of batteries for this Heli depending on what model you get. ( evidently there is an old version and a new version but both are the same model number, the battery mount is what changes.)

    This is a small 4 channel helicopter which allows you to Move up and down, Move Forward and backwards, Bank (move) left and right, and turn left and right. There are two servos under the canopy which control the forward/backward and bank left/bank right motion. The up, down, turn left, and turn right actions are controlled by the left joystick, and the move forward, back, left, and right motions are controlled by the right joystick. Unfortunately the helicopter I received has intermittent problems with the servo that controls banking left and banking right (ailerons) getting stuck, so the helicopter sometimes either does not bank during flight, or rapidly moves to a side and crashes into a wall. Of course, it is very annoying when this happens mid-flight, but my particular helicopter is, I hope, an exception and a widespread problem with this particular model. I have not contacted customer service about this issue yet. I will update this post with details of how that goes. When it functions properly it is extremely fun to fly. I have flown other RC and IR helicopter ranging from tiny indoor 2-channel ones to outdoor 4-channel ones. I must say that this one is very responsive, although controlling it does take a little bit of getting used to. The helicopter comes with two removable batteries and a charger that charges two batteries at a time. The charger connects to the USB port of a computer or the the cellphone wall charger that accepts a USB cable. I use the latter and so far it has worked quite well. You can get about 5 minutes of flight time out of each battery. I would getting extra batteries, and maybe even an extra charger. You can get a USB wall charger for a few $3 or $4 from Amazon. The helicopter does not have an on/off switch requiring you to yank the battery out when you want to turn it off. The helicopter frame is made out of plastic, but it seems to be quite sturdy. The skids feel a little flimsy, but they seem handle rough touchdowns. I haven't crashed the helicopter, so I don't know how it would hold up with a complete beginner crashing it over and over. The helicopter is radio controlled, instead of IR controlled, which I like a lot because you don't have to worry if for whatever reason you momentarily don't have line of sight. I am giving this 5 stars because it is a fun helicopter, and because I am assuming the servo issues I had with the one I received is an isolated incident.

    I love this little Heli. I have 2 of the Syma S107G's that are fun to fly with my 9 yr old son. When I really want to have fun I pull out my V911! I used to own an 8 channel RC Heli with full 3D flight capability. That was a bit too much for what little time I have to play and too spendy to have an ooops with. This little Heli is perfect. Small enough to fly inside and enough oomph to fly outside. More demanding than dual rotor but not as difficult to fly as 8 channel. Great little Heli for someone wanting to transition up. And the replacement parts are dirt cheap!!

    This is my first 4 channel Heli, and my only complaint is the fragility of the balance bar - though I may not have noticed that if it weren't for doing backflips on the ground after crashing (my fault)! Over all this is actually an easy bird to fly, though the controls take some getting used to when switching from a 3 channel. I had seen some mixed reviews when it comes to the durability of these things, and let me just say - the one I received took a beating and is still in good overall shape. With that said, the landing gear is pretty flimsy and BOUNCY, which makes a gentle landing a bit tricky. As far as the rest of the helicopter goes it tooke some hits without any other critical systems showing fatigue, and both batteries came working. The mode 1 and 2 settings are pretty fun to play with, and this thing definately moves - it was almost like watching a little hummingbird (a drunken one) fly around the house when in mode 2. Lastly, the trim settings seem like they could be a bit confusing - luckily I did not have to mess with these, mine was able to fly right out of the box - with the dreaded left tug at take off which I have noticed is characteristic of the single blade heli's. I am giving this 4 stars for now since it did perform very well, is easy to fly and replacement parts are easy to find. I will update after I get a little more flight time from it - my replacement parts are on their way :D Also, this was purchased on 01/07/14 for 41.95

    It's a lot more controllable than anything available at the department stores. I've purchased just about everything that Target, WalMart, and KMart have, and taken it all back. For less money, this is a lot more fun, just a better product over all. Having said that, even with the forward-backward trim all the way backward, it still went forwards when the stick was neutral. I looked at the servo arm, and it was not centered. I centered it, and that took care of that. My problem is the things that are NOT adjustable beyond trim. With the rudder trim all the way left, it still turns right, making directional control much more challenging. And the throttle is very difficult to control. When I let it get too high, I lower the throttle just a bit, and it heads for the ground. Way before it gets there, I've got the throttle up again, and it continues to descend. When I've got the throttle pegged, and it refuses to climb, I give it some directional controls, and it climbs like crazy, Then I have go through the whole process of bringing it back down. Judging from the comments here, I think it's a great little helicopter, and I just got one that isn't quite right.
