I think that is 23.99 EUR not CAD, which converts to about $36CAD

What's the quality?

I cant really tell since i just ordered , basicaly i think same built as a Syma but from the site's videos seem more stable .Still the same 7-8 minute runtime i beleive .These pretty much use the same build process and electronics .

I like the part where they compare it to a motorcycle with a fixed front fork that you steer by dragging your right or left foot on the ground.... But some favourable comments in there, too, esp by someone who modded it.

Mine arrived last week. Kids are having a lot of fun with it. It's very stable, although the throttle requires a fine touch. Good buy!

It's a great unit! VERY stable and very nice to fly. It's a very good s107 clone - even better quality it seems - with the side thrust added.

Lots of guys remove the side engines and fly like your regular 3 channel.

I was going to remove the side booms - make some custom booms and have both extra props there for forward thrust - we'll see how that goes!

I am not having a good experience with Lightake. I originally puchased the S107 which was fine, but when my 2nd order, the Avator F103 was dead on arrival (after a long wait due to the postal strike). Customer service wanted pictures, videos, and also try various things which I provided. Then they want me to ship it back but insist I pay part of the shipping cost (non refundable) which I refuse. I agree to ship it back if they pay the whole shipping cost, which they won't. Now they are not even answering my emails.
