TDmonthly Review:

What It Is
The Flytech Bladestar is an intelligent and rechargeable indoor aircraft that hovers with the use of a remote controller, via autopilot mode or when guided with your hands. The three-channel controller also stores the charger.

What We Thought
This is a very interesting toy that kids will have a great deal of fun with. My 15-year-old cousin tried it and said the aircraft takes a little getting used to, but after one minute he was flying like a pro! Every charge affords five minutes of flight. Flying into walls is no problem because the body was made to be crash-resistant, and it also comes with spare blades and propellers. 

Why They’ll Want It
The helicopter-like hovering action is fun for all children ages 8 and above. There is a dogfight feature that kids can use to face off against each other with two Flytech Bladestars. It has different modes and comes with a durable case, which makes the Flytech Bladestar a very versatile toy. — Melvin Chua 9/15/08
