I'm new to helis, started off with a cx3. My 57 year old dad was at the house and saw me flying. The next day he had the Scout. I've never seen him take an interest in any of my rc's and within 2 batteries he was flying across the room and landing on 6"x6" squares. It is very easy to fly and once you get the hang of it you can switch the remote to high response and get it moving. Even my wife was having fun hovering around and landing it in her hand. It's actually pretty tough too. She did a full header into the wall and forgot to kill the rotor. Bounced off the wall and floor and kept going. My cx3 is a bit big to fly inside so I will have a scout soon.
Great heli! Easy to fly, can change setting to get a little more challenging. Don't leave the battery in the heli ( or the charger), I left battery in heli over night and I killed it, another 5.00 battery and I'm up and flying again! Best 50.00 rc I've ever bought!
It is a great entry level helicopter for a kiddo or someone who has never flown anything. I use it for in the house. Haha... time candy to the bottom of it and drop it off across the living room.
bought one from the local hobby shop,didnt get one batterie pack run and had problems with getting it to hover,the heli kept wanting to fly forword no matter what adjustment I made.brought it back to the hobby shop and they told me to read the fine print.if you have a faulty unit dont take it back from where you purchased it but send it to horizon hobbies,and to think this hobbie shop suckered me into purchasing an extra batterie. put everything in a bag and gave it to goodwill.what a total waste.all Im saying is buyer beware.
This thing is JUNK!! It's soo fragile! The blades break VERY easy.. I bought this Heil for my step father and a Blade mCX2 Coaxial Helicopter for me. The mCX2 is soo much better of a Heil, much more durable, and flys better... The Scout Cx isn't worth the money.. You can buy a $29 cheap'o from the gas station that is built better and flys better than this heli! This thing should sell for $9.99, that's the price point that it fits in.. VERY Dissapointed!! I've been in RC for more than 20 years, I can't believe anyone says this this is a good product...
Great product - durable, easy to use, much easier on your wall paint than quads and fun to fly by yourself or in groups. Since I got mine a month ago 3 other friends have bought, none of us flew before and we're having a great time!
This is a great investment, it is super easy to fly and you can crash it and beat it. so much fun to fly around the house absolutely awesome.
I got this helicopter and have no regrets at all. Easy to fly,fun and the response switch makes it even better to fly. Your never to old to enjoy the little things in life and this is just another example of just that. I consider it $50 well spent
Don't let the haters steer you wrong on this one!!!!! I've been flying fixed wing aircraft for about 30 years,,, always wanted to try a good indoor heli!!! For $50 this one got me started!!! 3 ch yes,,, but none the less I could actually fly it!!!! And it flew pretty darn good!!!! So in a few days went out and tried a MCX2,,,,, even better yet!!!! Especially bound to my DX 8 airplane radio,,,,,,,,, so then!!!!!!! curiosity got thie best of me,,,, went an got the MSR!!!!!!!!! Much hArder to fly than MCX2 in my small living room ,,,, but still doable,,,, I was hooked!!!!!!I would absolutely definitely reccomend the usual learning progression of flying coax helis first then progressing to single rotor next. Being able to fly in my small obstacle filled living room a HUGE plus for me, and waaaaaaaaaay more fun than I expected!!!! Bottom line!!!!!!!! This heli the perfect inexpensive intro to RC helis!!!!
the blade is junk becasue it brake vary easy it is realy flimzy. i cant fly it but i can fly the shark vary good and i only haade to fix it onec the landing gear
