Double Horse 9058 Chinook (3 ch) - Anyone tried one?

I came across these at my local Micro Center, where they are on sale for $24.99. At half the price of an Airhogs Twin Thunder, it seems like a pretty good deal considering it's RF and doesn't look quite as toy-ish as the TT. Looking at the specs, I'm mainly wondering what the flight times are since there's just a 3.7v 450 mah lipo powering the four motors.

Looks okay on this video I found:

I've been averaging between 8 and 10 minute flight times.
What they don't show in that video though is, this helicopter has a very VERY stable "hands off" hover.
