the reason i'm selling is because i bought it for £120 in march last year as a birthday present for myself but i only ever got it to hover for a few seconds, probably because i'm useless... and because i'm also quite an impatient person, i gave up and it's been stored in the box ever since, only took it out once about 2 weeks ago to test it all still worked so i could sell it on, i can confirm it turns on properly and the rota's spin how then should, just never got the chance to take it outside and test it still took off because the weather was crap. but as it's been in it's box pretty much from new apart from 2-3 times i've took it out to try and fly it and the once to try it still worked, i can imagine it's all fine.
be aware: not for complete novices unless you have patience, this is a pretty much professional kit and might take a while to master, but when you do, it'll probably be one of the most fun things ever!
there's pictures attached (i hope)
the RC helicopter kit includes:
spare blades and rotors
stabiliser/skid orange ball things
paper instruction manuals
here's some info i found on adflyer.co.uk about the helicopter:
