Well it took a little over 2 or 3 weeks or so but My Green Dragonfly died. The wings won't flap most of the time unless I nudge them first and then only slowly. Now it's too scraped up to return to the store. Sad.
I have to admit these are fun little toys. But, they are toys..and Toys, by their very nature, are designed to break so parents have to buy new ones.
Was it worth the money for 2 weeks of fun? No, not really.
One has to wonder why Flytech did not just add a couple of dollars worth of upgrades to the product to make it hobby level. They could have still sold it as a toy for only a few dollars more and it would have appealed to those into hobby-level flying machines.
Will I buy another? No. In fact I have one new in the box I'm returning...not worth the money for 2 weeks life.
Is it fun? Does it fly well? Is is revolutionary? Absolutely yes to all those. But it's a toy. As long as people understand they are not going to last much more than a month if flown several times a day, fine.
Quite a nice Toy however. A very nice Toy indeed. Now to save my money for a Cybird or even, perhaps, a Wingbird or other 300.00+ Ornithopter...Hobby Level, of Course. No more toys for this bird!
