Actually ... Silverlit is a Hong Kong based company that manufactures in China also ... Can you elaborate? compare the two? ... inquiring minds want to know ...

and you expect us to believe you without providing an explanation as to why you think they are junk? Maybe the knockoff version is but definitely not the one made by silverlit.
maybe you just don't know how to fly them. I love my Silverlit. 3 weeks old and about 60 flights and still flying great.

My experience with china companies tells me that they are probably made by the same factory. The name brand one has passed quality control and is exported and the non name brand ones are rejects and dumped to whole sellers at cheap prices. This was the case with the century hummingbird. The hummingbirds are grade A quality whereas the same heli (not called century) bought in Shenzhen, China, can barely get of the ground without crashing. Given time the non name brand ones will get better. My advice is to wait on new products from China, as they are always upgrading their quality and the difference between successive versions are huge.

Just my 2 cents worth !!
