Syma S109G Apache RC Gyro Helicopter
Momma Told Me: Why don't you pick out something nice for yourself?

I've been spending a lot of time on Amazon lately.

I've been testing products and participating in study/focus groups since my college days. Though the years I've earned elite status with many organizations and social marketing venues, simply because I was there when they began. As a result, I seem to have a constant supply of points and rewards I chose to redeem in the form of Amazon gift cards. Sure, I COULD order household needs on Amazon Pantry, and sometimes I do put them to practical use but, for the most part, I rely on them to fund my various blogging projects (Need a glass frog for a photo shoot? Amazon has it! And it's here in 2 days!) and to try new things I'd never otherwise consider investing in.

We've had our fair share of RC 'toys' in our home, but the majority of them are child oriented and fairly cartoony. For a while I've been wanting to play with a remote control helicopter that responds similar to an actual helicopter (starting with the correct number of blades would be great.) So I did a lot of reading around and the brand Syma kept coming up. I'll admit, I passed them up time and time again because their average model was priced under $30, and that's quite low for an RC aircraft.

Well, as luck would have it, I invested in a light up helipad (yes, I know, I'm a nerd) and an opportunity came to me to play with the Syma Apache S109G. The Apache is beautifully detailed and very lightweight, to the point  was certain I'd wreck it in 5 minutes flat. I seldom see realistic aircraft models under $75, so, again, I was skeptical about performance.
 Well, I'll save you the nitty gritty- This little indoor RC copter is incredibly fun. Even Jay, who has poor hand coordination and easily gets frustrated, found himself resetting the copter to it's start to try, try again. I, on the other hand, was able to get several minutes of flight out of it before I downshifted too fast and cut the engine (whoops!) Let's just say this little Apache took plenty of a beating and kept on lifting back off!

The gyro feature makes it exceptionally responsive and perfect for beginners, while offering a full range of 360 flight movement for the advanced. I don't think we own a flying RC unit that picks up as fast, or responds as authentically to common aviation physics. I don't rave often, but this was a gem of an Amazon find that is well worth the money. And, if you're like me, remember, it's Amazon, so you're covered if anything arrives wonky or it just isn't a great fit.

The holidays are just around the corner- You better believe I've begun my shopping on Amazon! And, since I think the best prize is one you can pick yourself, our final Blog POP! School Rules giveaway will be for a $100 Amazon gift code! But this giveaway will be run a little different- I'll be handing out an entry for every Blog POP! School rules giveaway you enter- so make sure you keep hopping along. And no cheating, I will double check every entry from the winner! Good luck, and happy entering!

What Daughter Says: As we head towards the holidays it's easy to get caught up in the stress and shopping lists. Don't forget to treat-yo'self too!
