The Emergency Strike is modeled after real search and rescue operation helicopters, and it is pretty cool. Getting it up in the air was easy. As usual, it is all about learning to navigate the thing with practice. By the way, it ran into a few things, and it was pretty durable. It also has blue and red flashing lights.
The copter is powered by a rechargeable Lithium battery, and the user can plug in the charging lead into the infrared controller for 50-60 minutes for 8 minutes of flying time. It is an indoor toy, as the wind could take this for a ride. According to the Swann site (more product info here. Cannot buy there though), the user can fly two or three at once with tri-band remote selection. So if you have a dream of flying multiple R/C copters, this is your toy!
