    Flying Sphere Indoor RC Helicopter with Gyro, 3.5 Channel - Black

    Experience the magic of flight using this Flying Sphere Indoor RC Helicopter from Monoprice!

    This RC helicopter resides inside a plastic sphere, which protects the helicopter from crashes and also protects against injury from the spinning propellers. The 'copter has a built-in rechargeable battery, which allows for up to 5 minutes of flight on a full charge. The battery can be charged using either the controller or by plugging it into a USB power source, such as a computer USB port or a wall chargers.

    The controller supports three different channels, so you can operate up to three helicopters within the same area without interference. The controller communicates using infrared signals, so this toy should be used indoors only and should be kept away from sunlight and other bright lights.

    I got 4 or 5 runs out of it within a few inches of the ground before the drive failed to the lower rotor, as mentioned in a previous review. The rotors tagged the protective outer sphere a few times, but I guess that's why it's there (to protect the home's contents from damage and to keep hubby out of the doghouse). :)

    PROS: This thing is very entertaining. Was fun while it lasted.

    CONS: Lower rotor mechanism is fragile. It no longer flies.

    Impressive looks but very fragile...
    Kind of short flight time but it doesn't take long to recharge so that's acceptable. We were taking extra care when learning how to operate the flying sphere ie gradually powering up to avoid full speed collisions however on the second flight the unit bumped into the wall and took about a 4/5 foot fall, something got damaged causing first set of propellers to no longer spin, top propellers and directional rotor still fully functional. I had hoped that it was maybe just a low battery but after recharging bottom set of propellers still won't spin when power is engaged, without bottom propellers unit has no lift and cannot fly. If there's a do-It-yourself fIx for this I'd love to give It a try my son and I were hoping to get long term use out of the flying sphere thinking that the cage would provide some level of protection.



    When the Flying Sphere was operating it was a blast so don't get me wrong it's worth it if you can avoid ceilings and Walls you should be fine....lol.

    PROS: Price! What a great deal, quick recharge, very "finished" & complete packaging and product, a small screwdriver was even provided to open the battery compartment.

    CONS: No longer flies, Short Flight Time, Protective cage failed to protect, Broke during second flight.

    RC Sphere
    It takes a licking and keeps on working.

    PROS: This little RC sphere is very durable. The price you can't beat. It does keep the center of gravity centered at the bottom during flight.

    CONS: The problem I have had is that the cage is so flexable it keeps bending and gets in the way of the props. The solution is to keep bending the cage out of the way of the props (a constant chore.)

    Broke immediately
    The motor drive gear fell off within 5 seconds of flying, so it wasn't touching the rotor gear, and the lower rotor wouldn't turn. I pushed it back on but it just fell off again. You can push it back up using a toothpick and it will fly again for a few seconds but I can't get it to stick.

    PROS: Looks like it would be great for kids

    CONS: Broke immediately.

    Absolute Garbage
    This thing is destined to fall apart from the second you pull it out of the box. Not only was mine partially defective from the start, but there was a piece that had fallen off which luckily I found before I pitched the box. DO NOT buy this for a child, they will be severely disappointed. The rotor blades smack against each other when you start it up and start chipping the blades right away. Don't waste your money like I did.

    PROS: None

    CONS: Everything
