The Reviews

The Syma S022 CH-47 Chinook Mini RC Helicopter was reviewed by 89 different customers. Overall, it had okay comments, but it could have been better. Out of a five star rating system, it received 3 and a half.

A few liked the massive size of the helicopter, compared to some of the ones that are out on the market. It’s amazing how a unit this big can still maneuver nicely and with perfect control. Another thing that’s nice is that it doesn’t need any assembly but can be played directly from the box, just make sure the batteries are charged and you’re ready to go.

Several liked the power it has. One commented and said that he liked the “serious lift”. It takes off quite quick if you put the controller to full throttle. It has the amazing ability to carry the weight of two spoons under it. It is quite fun to setup different landing areas to simulate rescue scenarios.

Quite a few people had commented on the durability of the Chinook. One guy actually had his friend blow it out of the sky with a Nerf gun. On several occasions, it brought the Chinook, but there were no major damages to be reported. Your helicopter will become marked up after hitting the wall a few time, it’s only normal.

Many had commented that the manual is poorly translated, it seems to be translated from another language and the person who did the translation didn’t really have a good grasp of the English language. Just one thing for them to improve on.

Another issue that some people had reported was that they had problems charging the batteries. It seems that if you leave the charge on for too long, the batteries will not work anymore. This one reviewer found out the hard way after he accidentally left it charging the whole night.
