This Scale CoAx Hughes 500 Police heli is wonderfully finished with Panel lines, rivets, LED Search light/Tail light and a hidden battery hatch to keep the scale profile. If your looking for a beginners heli with scale appeal then this is the model for you. Stable flight characteristics make this heli so easy to fly that a complete beginner can pick up the controller and be flying in just minutes.
The Helicopter comes completely assembled and all you need to do is charge the included battery using the supplied USB cable or via the transmitter and you will be ready to fly in around 15 minutes.
The included 2.4ghz transmitter with digital trims offers interference free flying while the built in gyro ensures stable and level flight. A spare set of blades come with the kit to get you back in the air if you have any bumps.

Should be rated zero' complete rubbish will not even bind to stock transmitter! Appreciate it if any knows of a way to do thisMy son broke the flybar, no other brands compatible to it so now it cant fly. 1 main reason must buy the models got parts support by lhs. Now planned to mod d flybar by using nylon tube.Recieved mine in good cond. checked all items lay nice li in the box. Easy to fly, stable. Tx not so good in design as it cannot stand vertically. Manual included but not much help as no mention anything regarding how to fine tuning, no mention how to charge the battery and how long bla bla bla...only simple instruction on how to control the heli like stick movements....This will be confusing for real beginner.
My heli now tends to drift to the right side when i hover it tail facing me.
Overall, nice and good heli for indoor fun.Did not get this one, instead got a Mode 2. Please read my review of it for a easy fix to the lower blade breakage!Great helicopter for that price. I had a bunch of IR helicopters even one MCX1 but this one outperforms all of them. Very stable no egging , very responsive and pretty fast. It can fly outside without any problems just avoid stronger breeze. One downside is the flight time which is about 7 minutes, and then the blades, they are very fragile, one came already broken, and I managed two brake the little piece that connects them with control rod, just the slightest hit in the corner of the table, or just bad landing. I had to glue them for 6 times in two days :( I never had to with cheaper 3 & 4ch hellis even after lot of beating. This heli is originally listed as 9988 rc helicopter on the web, it could help somebody. The spare parts will probably double the cost of the helicopter, but still it is a great joy to fly, and looks just like the real thing. Comes larger than it appears on the pictures :)
The manual is well written , just not very well explained how to switch between beginner & advanced mode . any ideas are welcome.I have one of these, I didn't actually buy my first one from Hobby King, but it's the same.... I'm very impressed too. I used to fly bigger I/C helicopters and this is so stable and controlable it "feels" like something much bigger. If you want a "toy" helicopter you can actually control and have never flown a 4 CH model helicopter before, this is probably a good place to start.
Well packed in the small box. Amazingly stable flight. The battery connector is compatible with such as Kyosho Minuum, Blade msR, but their size are different. The battery holder can't hold the above mentioned batteries because the holder is a little small. I was a little disappointed because I have a lot of Minuum batteries...Now I want spare batteries but couldn't find at Hobby King.
