    I've had it a couple of days. It's a blast to fly, and really easy to control.

    Very cool! Wait until RW-1 (I think that is his screen name) sees this. Have fun.

    I need one! I'd have hours of fun terrorizing my 3 cats. Yours didn't seem too bothered by it desso.

    It's a Syma S107. Very stable and easy to fly. Got it from Amazon for 32.00 shipped. The only bad side is 40 minutes of charging for 5 minutes of flight. The cats were freaked at first but now pay it little mind.

    CK, you'll love it. Google S107 forum for good tips on battery life and heli mods. Join up if you'd like.

    That thing would freak out my birds, I'd have to take it outside or upstairs.

    While I'd like to play with it I don't think I would want to own one. I really don't have time for it.

    Nice toy though. Enjoy.

    I reccomend opening the remote and unhooking the spring on the left joy stick that controls vertical movement. I find that it's easier to control with less up/down corrections and easier to hover. There is one screw in the charge cable compartment. In less than five minutes you'll be good to go, and you can easily change back if you don't like the great results.

    Think it would slow your posting down?
