    I got one of these at Radio Shack over the weekend, and I'll be damned if it isn't the most fun toy around. After a little practice, I can get it to hover in place, chase the cat around, terrorize my GF, ect. This one can actually turn, unlike those other suck ones you can get everywhere else, and it's tiny.

    Pure awesomeness. It can fly for about 10 minutes after a 45 minute charge (it charges like one of those micro RC cars). The charge time kinda sucks, but it's worth it.

    Damn, that lil' chopper looks neat. If not for the price, I'd be all over this thing.

    Shame you guys are going to Radioshack and paying full price. It's not like I could just go to work, get it for 30% off, and send it to you.

    I wanted a hovering shot, but the minicon was slightly too heavy. This will have to suffice.

    My dad bought that thing at Albertsons. It completely sucks. It just spins around and the rotors were crooked. You guys must have gotten better ones.

    This exact one? I find that hard to believe, mine flies straight as an arrow. It even has a trim pot for slight adjustments on the turning.

    I though this model was a Radio Shack exclusive.

    Can you fly it outside because I have one from a hobby store and I can not fly outside. A litTle wind and the thing gets knocked out of the air.
