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.
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.
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.
