Q & As

Rated 2 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing, not John Lewis quality My mum bought this for my son. It took my husband an hour to assemble, with lots of fiddly little pieces and poor instructions. It is poor quality and flimsy. You are meant to wind the propeller up 250 times, just for one flight! You wouldn't mind this so much if it did actually fly for 90 seconds as it said on the box, but it flew for 10 seconds before crashing to the ground and losing a wheel! This product really isn't up to John Lewis standards, and I think if anyone in the toy department had tried building and flying it, then they wouldn't be stocking it. 27 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good for the family Kept the son and grandsons happy also learnt about flight 06 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of money Looks like an interesting product, however, poor instructions with very small, imprecise diagrams. The double sided sticky tape sticks to fingers and curls out of shape, making it impossible to fit correctly. With the particular product I purchased, the stick 'fuselage' did not fit in the set holes. Wasted money buying this, wasted time trying to put it together. Hopefully not wasting my time now in passing on advice - do not buy,. 07 February 2015
