How long did it take before you had it flying around the room? : )

Flying was accomplished in minutes. I can't seem to keep it away from
the walls, chairs, tables, plants, small children, pets ...

I have broken it twice already.

I have concluded it's not my fault. I'm quite the accomplished combat
pilot - in my imagination.

Well, you also have to take into consideration that inside flying area
is not as hazard-free as outside flying area is at height. : )

With that in mind, I took it down to our store and flew it around there.
That was better. The question came up, "How high will it go?" I took it
outside to find out, learning that IR only goes 100 to 150 feet. I was
sad when the power heli cut out on the heli and it landed on top of the
building. The weather choose that moment to rain. One of my guys
clambered up on the roof and rescued the poor thing getting soaked in the
process. Now it's sitting on my shelf like a wounded bird.

LOL. It will recover, with a little drying out and maybe some Scotch
Tape. <G>

Yeah, but will my tech? You know he is still whining and that all
happened Thursday.

Well, at least the tech isn't sitting on your shelf like a wounded
bird. He'll get over it with a little Scotch Tape, minus the Tape. <G>
