However as you can see it's not a problem with super thick polystyrene packaging. The spares (outlined below) bag and manual are left outside the packaging, simply because they won't fit inside. Never the less it's super secure for transport if that was ever a worry. Now to open it...
BEWARE the wall charger as you can see if you live inside EU is no good, so you'll need to make your own loom / Buy an adapter OR use your own lipo chargers like I did. Everything in the box is a nice tight fit so no chance of things coming lose from idiot post delivery services. The transmitter requires 4 * AA batteries but there is also a 3 pin servo plug type socket so you could also put a lipo in! Super nice feature and saves modifications later.
I back this up with the BIND procedure being: Turn on transmitter > plug in heli > wait > fly... There is no button or such so I don't see how you could bind it with anything else, sorry folks.
I've already found a couple of videos on the net mostly from China of a man flying indoors, looping over inverted and hitting the floor a good few times. After you can see there is no damage, although I don't fancy testing that out for myself.
Overall the RTF helicopter is excellent for it's size and price, so yeah you must use the stock transmitter but for what your getting it's more than acceptable. The transmitter doesn't feel cheap or look cheap with some fake stupid stickers on it or such.
I was flying in a little wind so it was not perfect for it's maiden but I don't care, this little helicopter blasted around the sky like the big boys while keeping nice smooth movements instead of being twitchy as many mini helicopters are at speed. Flips or tick-tocks will seriously drop the head speed to the point that you will have to recover, I was able to do 3 tick-tocks (tail down) before the rotor speed was so low I thought it was going to drop out of the sky.
Inverted flight isn't so hard with this helicopter however the flip over vertical height needed is about 1 meter so if you live in a tight space don't think about it. The controls allow you to hold throttle and change from regular normal flight with linear throttle and then switch to 3D. One last thing I want to mention is regarding throttle hold, I tried it out to try auto-rotate to land from only 2 meters or so high. The blades stopped almost instantly... auto-rotation ... erm.. nope lol, drop out the sky like a brick - tick.
