Millenium PTU problem

I just bought the Millenium PTU. It really is a blast to fly and gives much
better control than the IR type transmitter toys. I do have a problem.
After I fly for about 30 sec. the receiver stops getting a signal and of course
the heli drops out of the sky. When I pick it up and set the transmitter back to low throttle it reinitializes and will fly for another 30 seconds. I packed it up
and will send it back for a replacement.. Does anyone who owns one have the same problem, or did I get a lemon (which does happen)? If there is an easy solution to this without replacing it, let me know also.

Thank,
--Bruce

Yikes! I googled it and it's some sort of robot man toy helicopter. If you liked THAT.. get a honeybee FP (or equivalent) and a get a simulator and get down to learning how to fly a real R/C helicopter and have a really fun time!

Something like this toy has no upgrades, not easy to get parts, and not much challenge or control either. It's just a small stepping stone to getting into R/C helis.

Go to www.youtube.com and search honeybee FP to see what I mean... it doesn't cost that much more than your toy!
