Hi
I dont know about those, seems like there just adding unnecessary weight to the helicopter
Helis of that size and power motors certainly dont need metal parts in the rotor head for strength
Take care

I would be careful on this one. You have to charge from the TX. I hate to do that because of the cost of batteries. Also remember that this seller has 13 next to the star near rating. I think, dont quote me, that it means he only has 13 ratings.

Omigosh,

it's a Kob-clone.

odd helicopters are coming, we should just deal with it.
Darn, I nearly bought this...$19 er so shipped...hm, toogoodtobe true?
In the end, it looked too fragile.
And those bird-legs ook me out. More Uncanny Valley.
On second thot, I can't deal with it.

That's the number of times the seller's gotten feedback.
Click ON that number, see what people have said.
EDIT: dang, I almost ordered it again, based on the reviews of the seller.
Showed the pic to my pitbull for a second opinion. He peed himself and stalked off.
Nope, it's too darn ugly to own.
I'll peruse the other wares in the list, just to be sportin'.
