for me at my best it’s barely in control for 20 - 30 seconds. But my nephew did much better right off. Mainly, it needs room to swoop around.
Guess i’ll get a bunch of rechargables.
Hopefully it is not to hard to fly. My dogs chase birds all day and this will freak them out. In for one.

I’m trying to buy this, and I can’t push the button. Could it be because my company still uses IE6 on Commodore 64s?
I have one of these. It fly’s pretty good but not nearly as well as the flying man they had out a while ago. Wish I could find that one again.
I think I was too late. Had to sign up for an account and apparently it passed while I was filling out my payment information.
Six months later and I’m back with the dirt. This little guy is pretty cool once you get the hang of flying it. Here’s my notes on the experience:
The two joysticks on the remote control the flapping of the wings and the tail rotor.
The hardest part is getting the launch right so you get enough lift to make the flight longer than a few seconds – the trick is to make sure the insect’s back is parallel to the ground.
The insect itself is very light, and the replaceable wings seem pretty durable (I’m still on the first set).
You place the batteries into the remote control, and then it has a little dongle wire you can plug into the bug’s anus; each charge gives you maybe 5-10 minutes of good flying time.
Hope this helps! This provides hours of amusement for your favorite 8 year old – highly recommended.
