    Sky Shark RC Helicopter with Gyro, 4.5 Channel - Blue

    Experience the magic of flight using this Sky Shark RC Helicopter from Monoprice!

    This RC helicopter features a sleek body design and blinking LED lights. It 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.

    A blast to fly

    Pros: Easy to fly.
    I think above average battery life compared to other helicopters

    Cons: Maybe the on-off switch.

    I had a problem with the power switch falling apart after a week of ownership and maybe 20 flights. I contacted customer service and they replaced it. I'm hoping it was a flukey thing because flying this is so much fun. It flies a bit faster than some I have flown and once you get the hang of it, it is a blast.
    Thanks again to Monoprice for great customer service!

    Pros: Seemed like a good idea for $15

    Cons: Was able to use it one time. Had it about 3 feet off the ground, landed it (not crashed). Tried to take off again and it went about one foot forward and died. Hasn't worked since.

    Waste of $15. Would never buy this again.

    Hello egephart,

    Thank you for your review and I am truly sorry for the inconvenience you've encountered with Helicoprter. Have you tried removing the batteries and having it resynched on the channel to see if it'll work? Please let me know, thank you!

    If you're referring to the remote, that's not the issue. I'll have the helicopter plugged in via usb for a bit, then turn it on. The lights will stay on for about 3 seconds then shut off. It seems like it's nothing to do with the remote but the helicopter itself. Not sure if it's a bad weld on a board, battery or what.

    Lots of fun

    Pros: Lots of fun :) pretty easy to learn how to fly and manoeuvrable

    Cons: Too many crashes and it's out for the count.

    Loved it, one crash too many and I was not able to get it to fly any more :(
    Got another one. Best fly it in a large room without too many obstacles.

    Pros: Good flight skills and controls. Overall good quality as an affordable price. Two spare part are provided in case of crash inducing damage.

    Cons: Fragile and needs to learn to control it. Not recommended for kids nor for people without a minimum of patience.
    Would be great if we could buy extra spare parts for replacement aside of the main purchase.

    Good product.

    Pros: Looks great, fast, & holds up pretty well regarding durability post crash(es)

    Cons: Signal not maintained, inconsistent between controller and copter. Every time you think you have everything adjusted and set appropriately, rotors, stabilizers, etc., its does its own thing. far too complicated if want accurate flying, particularly indoors. If you just want it to go and do whatever and look cool, just let fly free, per say, outdoors... keeping in mind the range limitations.

    Not happy. Takes all the fun out when you have to worry more on constantly readjusting everything, even during same flight.
