The Roswell flyer or Draganfly (same product) is a larger version of the Keyence Revolutor saucer, flies well. Easier to set up than a micro heli, but nothing like a micro or regular RC heli.
The thing that I often hear from owners of Roswells is that the thrill wears out quickly as it's not as challenging as an RC helicopter. I agree with this, but you never know until you actually try the product, and decide for yourself. This is with anything including MIA micro helis.
I have taken original Roswells and improved the frame for some people that wanted higher strength lower weight, easy assembly/disassembly for tranport and storage.
MIA micro heli modular block frame components lend themselves well as parts to use for making an inproved Roswell frame.
If there is more than just one person interested in obtaining a modular frame for the Roswell, let me know via Email and I will see if I can put together a Modular Upgrade Graphite Frame kit. I have the components, its just a matter of making the kits with some instructions.
Look through previous E-Zone posts on Roswell, flying saucer, for MIA's upgraded Roswell frame photos.

I had two of the original Roswells and I would catagorize them as an expensive novelty. Out the box you will get around 3-4 minutes and the arms break very easily. After each quick fix with epoxy, the roswell will get heavier each time and performance will reduce. Its a really neat "thing" but it grows old fast. If you can find one dirt cheap and have the frame strenthened and also keep the flight times the same, it would be a worthwhile toy to hover indoors.Its very easy to hover but thats all you can really do. Keep it ona smooth surface and you have to have zero winds.My advice though is that if you want a helicopter, get a helicopter.
