Tmart RC Helicopter Review and Giveaway

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Enter to win an RC Helipcoter from Tmart. #Giveaway ends 9/13.
Have you ever been to a mall and seen those remote controlled (RC) helicopters flying around? I had the opportunity recently to receive one of those products from Tmart.com for review and you get a chance to win one below.
Enter to win an RC Helipcoter from Tmart. #Giveaway ends 9/13.
There are several Tmart RC Helicopters available. They vary in price range from just over $10 to over $100. The one I received (HammerHead Pro Series 2.5CH Rechargeable Micro Helicopter Orangewas somewhere closer to the low end, coming in at $17.34 (but on sale from $32.10). 

First off, let me say, I am not a pilot. This thing looks easy to control but you need every bit of finesse to fly the helicopter properly. It comes in a simple box. You just need to add your own batteries, not included, 6 AA. The totality of instructions are left on the bottom of that box. My only real issue at this point was I couldn't find the on/off switch for the copter after charging. It is really small.

With lights flashing and blades swirling, I was able to fly the helicopter around fairly well, after the first couple of mulligans. It is rated 14+. My six year old tried to control it but apart from up-down, that was about all he could do.

The controls of the super copter are infrared. That means the chopper is controlled with a line-of-sight light beam, not radio frequency controlled. And with a recharge sequence under an hour, you get about eight minutes of flight time.

In the end, a decent little machine weighing in at about 10 1/2 ounces (300g). Lots of fun once you can control it properly. And, oh yeah, don't scare the dog with it.

And here's the giveaway. You can win your very own copter, too. The exact one reviewed. The giveaway is US only and runs through lucky Friday the 13th of September at 11:59 pm EDT.
