I don't have this specific toy, but I have another one like it that is enclosed in a roll cage (I think the brand is Excite?), and I just want to tell you guys that the cage is a FANTASTIC idea, and it works pretty well. The main drawback of any RC helicopters is that they are prone to crashing and breaking. The cage, while not protecting against ALL damage, lets you bump into walls, ceilings and floors without having to worry too much. But don't fly too crazy. I broke the small upper propeller on mine, but the extra propeller that came with it has been going strong for a few weeks now.
