Default Flying Truck Novelty RC RTF Less $30

Just received it from Helipal, more of an indoor flyer, flys slow in a harrier or nose up position, is 3 channel, rear prop reverses for left and right, thrust from front prop gives power and elevation for a fun flight. Nightflyyer has a nice youtube on this one, here's my close up view of it. I did manage a short hop last night it indeed flys !

25 temp but flew, its light weight takes a beating as both survived the maiden attempt, what fun. Flys slow so defintely a beginner fun toy, certainly unusual.

Both unscathed !

Tnx for your reply, tried to get it back to camera view but nailed me ! It's an awesome toy. Lipo internal battery recharges in only 15 minutes. Fortunately it's a light ship. All movements by thrust, reminds me of the early AirHogs, handles great.

very nice. Funny how the simplest toys can be just as much fun as the really big expensive ones huh?

It's definitely different, tried a flight later in a shifting breeze, tho made airborne wasn't responding very well, but after all is more of the indoor flyer. Won't throw my Stryker away, but this toy is fun.

Thanks for the reply.
