This review is from: Estes Firestrike Radio Controlled Helicopter (Toy) Man this toy is a blast! I originally started with the Syma S107g as a starter vehicle to learn the basics. Always wanted to do aerial R/C but was too worried about crashing and ruining a nice model and throwing my money away trying to learn how to fly the darn things. After mastering the basics and feeling comfortable enough with my skill level, I decided to get a model I really wanted. I like military models, so naturally this was a good first choice for me. For the price, The detail is good and am very pleased with the handling. Although not as “spot on responsive” as the 107, it still handles well and have lots of fun with it. Flight time avg. 5-7 mins. Charging time 35-40 mins. By the way, this Estes model is in fact the Syma S109. Just rebranded for Estes. Don’t confuse “rip offs or knock offs” with rebranding. “Rebranding or Private Labeling” means that the manufacturer of a product has made a deal with a company/retailer to make “X” amount of product in bulk with company/retailer’s name for an agreed price. Did the research and found that this really is a Syma product. Very enjoyable hobby. Also a shout out to Tom’s Toys Beverly Hills for their part in fulfilling this order for Amazon. Lightning fast and accurate shipping. Highly Recommended.

My kids are four and six. We figured it would keep them occupied until it broke, maybe a couple of days at best. Then I thought we’d be lucky if it lasted a week. Five weeks later, it’s still going! We fly it over carpet, and it has crashed many, many, many times. One of the “wheels” is about to break off… but THE THING STILL WORKS! I have to give credit where credit is due, this is an impressive little device.
