Look in my gallery for a video of bladerunner in flight.
I've flown all kinds of micro helicopter suitable for indoor flight.
HB FP/CP,Hornet, Lama clone.
The bladerunner is by far the best helicopter to fly in your home.
It uses Lithium Polymer battery. It has short flight, not short Life.
battery life should match typical lithium battery, or longer, since BR will shutdown far before the pack gets discharged fully.
Recharging takes 20min to do since the pack is only partially discharged after flight.
Flight time should be around 5-6mins and can be increased to 7-8 with the removal of the canopy.
Also charger is a Real Lipo charger unit integrated into the Tx.
A very robust system. Well thought out. And flys like a dream.
Any beginner can pick it up and hover it. No need to learn how to hover since this thing hover on its own.
