Don't know about their helis but the Spyhawk plank has had my interest for a long time now.

No problems yet, and no parts available that I know of. Transmitter sucks though, but flyable.

I turned off that feature. It's sometimes more annoying than helpful.

Where did you get THAT price from? The Hubsan I paid for was less than $100 shipped!

The video looks pretty glitchy even when the heli is close within LOS. How does the video work for you guys that own this heli?
