I searched long and hard to find this helicopter for my two boys. We previously bought one from a zoo and unfortunately the rotor blades had broken off after a few months of play. With that being said, I was okay with the fact that they lasted a few months at that price point. However, the ones I purchased for St Nick lasted only 1day for the one son and less then a week for the other son. I am so disappointed in the craftsmanship of this toy. The body of the helicopter is made of diecast so it is super strong, but the rotor blades are made of cheap plastic that literally breaks off with the slightest pressure. I even tried to reinforce the remaining blades with black electrical tape to make them more sturdy, but without fail they just snapped off.
Hi Linda, I apologize for the trouble with this helicopter. Would you reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org? I would like to get some more information to explore how we can help. Thank you
