RC helicopters like that one are not toys. Some of them have carbon fiber blades. Imagine what a four foot diameter carbon fiber blade spinning at 2,000 plus rpm would do to you when you fly it into yourself or someone else.

All that said, the leaves and limbs raining down after the helicopter hit the ground was hysterical.

That looked like my first try with my grandson's mini-sized in-the-house-only model. Bam into the ceiling, bam into the floor, let go of the throttle & stick and handed it back.

If you are into flying models, you ought to look at the ones with the camera system. You look through goggles that see from the pilot's seat and some even have a heads up display and GPS to return to base. Again, not a toy but so cool!

Helicopters are hard to get onto but a blast once you do. I've been flyin rc for 24 years.
Get yourself a cheaper lil electric with twin rotors to practice a lil with. It will save you a lot of money
