    They are lots of fun and mine have held up well. Seems some people have had problems with motors and you would need some spare blades but I've bounced mine around pretty well and nothing has broken. I've got more that one if that means anything.

    Durability of air vehicles is MUCH different than that of land vehicles. Compared to other air craft I have owned the QR-1 is extremely durable and very capable as well, not to mention a blast to fly. Bang for the buck I think the QR-1 is a good value and just a plesure to fly, I would recommend buying one.

    Yeah before I sent it in to Traxxas, it was awesome. A lot of fun to fly and different than anything I've experienced. On the bright side of sending it in, Traxxas replaced 2 motors that I didn't even know had issues and replaced all the blades free of charge. They reset everything, test flew it, and now it is finally on its way back to me. So they almost replaced the entire bird (component wise) free of charge
    Just can't get enough....
