It looks ok but it doesnt appear to have a swahplate. You might be able to take it apart and add one along with a better rx and gyro.

Looks like another twist on the standard 3 channel design No swashplate as all control is through varying rotor speed. Metal parts and a USB charger, but still IR control - so even if it has "Ultra stable twin rotors design for both indoor and outdoor flight", the control system is not designed for outdoors. Could well be worth it for a casual indoor flyer.

once you have the swash plate on where do u plan to put the servo's?

and i think for the problem and money its going to cost to buy the swash, servo's, linkage, rx, tx (if you don't already have one), then probably new motors and batteries to lift the weight, then the work to put it together and all this for a heli that might not even work in the end.

it looks like a good $20 heli for what it is but if you want something like a 5g6 it would be better to just buy a 5g6

Hopefully they will give you at least a 5 minute flight. I never fly any of my small stuff for more than 5 minutes anyway. Are they extremely hot to the touch or do they get so hot that you only get a couple of minutes of flight?

Theres a few videos of the NON gyroed version on Youtube. Seems like they fly pretty good and plenty of power.

This heli seems also to have bearings!
