For the price paid this is a very flimsy product.

I am hugely disappointed by the product (which was bought as a gift) and would ask for my money back if that was possible!

Confirmed purchaser I like gadgets!

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
.None
Bad points:
It could only be balanced by putting a blob of blu tac along its length. It only flew for about 3 seconds before it crashed - each time, every time! A real waste of money and no entertainment value. It is now broken after crashing several times! (only into sand I hasten to add - we live backing onto the beach)

Confirmed purchase: 10 Dec 2007

Dale, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The flying insectoid flies fast and high. The design is very sturdy, having survived a few nasty crash landings onto the street outside my house with no real damage. The glowing eyes are a nice touch, as are the changeable wing designs. It charges up fairly quickly and, once you get a hang of the controls (which takes some practice), it is brilliant fun.
Bad points:
Despite what it says in the description, the insectoid is not suitable for flying indoors unless you have a huge open space (like a gymnasium). The instructions suggest a room at least 5m x 5m, but even this is far too small. It simply flies too fast, so that it will hit the walls before it ever properly takes off. Also, the insectoid is quite sensitive to the wind, so that it's only possible to fly outside on a very still day.
