The Syma S022 Big Army Chinook RC Helicopter is one Syma RC Helicopter that your boys will surely enjoy. The obvious difference of this toy from the rest of the remote controlled helicopters that are out in the market is its size. It's big.
If your kid loves playing with RC helicopters then for sure you've had your fair share of those different types of RC Helicopter in your home. Most of those out in the market though are medium sized or small and some are even so tiny it could fit in the palm of your hand. These types of RC Helicopter promise easy flying and easy maneuvering due to its light weight. And you don't have to worry about durability because most of these toys are built for heavy play and even with its fragile-looking exterior it can withstand rigorous play.
This is the most fun I have had with a 3 channel helicopter, and I own the S107, s032, s012, and a few other models made by Syma. This one is definitely the most fun. It is surprisingly controllable, even without a gyro like the s107 and others. I have no problem flying this large chinook around my very small room without crashing at all. The dual rotor head setup makes it stable and VERY VERY fun to fly. There is a slight learning curve to get used to the tail swing, but it doesnt take long.
My battle buddy has a few smaller RC helicopters which she flies every once and while. I had one of those before but they just go up and down, maybe a few circles but that's it. 2 blades are better than one, right? It came in and I was surprised by how big it was because I thought it was going to be small. I was also concerned with the fact that the rotors are loose (no worries, this is suppose to be like that, it flies fine with the rotors like that.) The instruction booklet is poorly translated but its not that complicated. I finally took out for the first time and it was AMAZING! I didn't have to set the trim or anything! It flew like a dream and everyone was impressed with it! Even my battle buddy who says its ten times better than hers! It only takes a minute to get use to. I was even able to get it to land and fly to my hand.
Most remote control helicopters, or RC toys for that matter, needs several batteries to make it work. A set of batteries is needed for the remote control, and another set is needed for the toy itself. With the Syma S022 Army Chinook Helicopter, this problem is solved for you. Only the transmitter will need to be powered by batteries. The helicopter can just be charged through the wall outlet. This will surely save you more money. And not to mention it will be friendlier to the environment.
With the Syma S022 Army Chinook Helicopter, your kid will start to feel like he's flying the real thing. And he'll feel like one of the big boys with this big RC Helicopter, especially after he's playing with friends who have those tiny models.
And best of all it’s big enough to fly up in the air and it will give you a feel of flying a real helicopter. It’s not too big that flight will be impossible, its just big enough to give you the satisfaction of not just playing with a toy but of controlling a piece of equipment and have it fly.
