    some of you Army guys might know them as the CH-47 Chinook. when i was in the marines, i use to envy those helo pilots. CH-46, the 53's, the Cobra's. man they all just rock. well i always want to fly my own, and now i do. my mom bought the boys this thing without reading the label. come to find out it is the pro version of the air hogs fleet. theoridically u by the beginner, intermediate, then pro. way over my sons level of focus. and thats what it takes to fly this thang.the hand controller has to many movements for them to master right now. so i took it over till they learn. i know what ur thinkin, "give them kids back the toy matt." well i forgot to mention mom spent almost a Bill for this doggone thang. aint know way im gonna let um kill it right out the gate. the boy play with it when dads monitoring. i gotta say, i love this toy. great for eye hand cordination, and for dive bombing the dog.

    it is fun. the only downside it the paint job, its weak; it would look better in a marine scheme or even a naval paint. the way it is, it looks like a transport for the Golden knights. that was not a shot at the Army by the way, lol.

    Nothing wrong with anything that carries the Golden Nights.Our team the chance to jump with them back in 1976.They are cool guys, the only trouble with them is they train too much. not enough fun dives.
