We like putting our gadgets through torture tests and what better way to test something out than the grimey, concrete streets of New York. We took our mini chopper for a joyride to see how it'd perform outdoors. The chopper not only impressed us, but it got the attention of pretty much every passerby. Moving the chopper from side to side, however, was nearly impossible (it seemed to have a mind of its own), but we easily got it to ascend for about 50-feet before the frequency cut off and the mini copter made a nosedive for the concrete. Still, despite a bunch of crashes, the little chopper kept taking off. It may be cheaper than the Micro Mosquito, but it can still take a beating.
