Modeled after the U.S. Army Chinook, this is the remote controlled helicopter that flies easily even when a beginner is on the stick. Its exceptional stability is provided by two pairs of contra-rotating coaxial rotors that cancel the effects of angular momentum and provide gyroscopic in-air stability to keep the copter balanced during flight. Its three-channel 2.4 GHz remote provides digital proportional control of rotor speed for flights as high as 164'; trim controls provide further tuning for pitch and yaw. Faithfully depicting the iconic 1960s workhorse, its camouflage-pattern fuselage is detailed with four windows on each side and a turboshaft engine on either side of its rear rotor cowling. Its rechargeable battery provides five- to seven-minute flight times from a one-hour charge using its AC adapter. Requires four AA batteries. Ages 14 and up. 11" L x 3" W x 6 1/2" H. (3 oz.)

Hours of fun included !

The remote control Chinook Helicopter is a fun piece of technology; well-constructed, stable in flight, and fairly easy to learn to control after a short time use, it will provide hours of fun and fascination for everyone. It can also develop eye-hand coordination skills.

It's fineif you're well coordinated and fly it in a field without rees,if possible.
husband likes, but is a challenge to fly
My husband and father-in-law like the helicopter and it has taken quite a beating in some rough landings. Both say it is difficult to maneuver the controls to make it fly smoothly.
Great copter. Having a ball flying it.
