_
"Its been crashed into everything in the house and nothing has broken."
_
"I tried to fly out of a crash and damaged the lower rotor gear housing."
_
"I have had a few minor crashes with it and the best way to prevent damage to the little bird is to take your finger off of the throttle when a crash begins."
_
"There was the occasional crash on the walls or missed landings, but now it won't develop lift anymore and can't get off the ground."
_
"Beware that it is not easy, you'll no doubt crash many times if you are an absolute beginner."
_
"Very durable as I've had a few crashes as I try for more skilled maneuvers and landings."
_
"I'm very impressed with the quality as I haven't broken a single part after many crashes."
_
"Im a noob and i ve crashed it a few times but it still works fine and its very easy to fly too."
_
"I ended up buying a Syma S107 metal body and it flies great and very durable when it crashes."
_
"For under $20, this is a very entertaining piece of kid technology and pretty rugged when it crashes or falls."
