      I noticed with the mini rc helicopters that there is many different brands but they are all basically the same thing. They must just package them differently. These things are so much fun to fly around the house. And they are so inexpensive too! When I was growing up, we didn't have any of the electric RC aircraft so everything was expensive. Nowadays the hobby is much more economical. Thanks for the post!
