I bought two batman copters like these from Woot a couple of years ago and I could never get them to work. I would plug them in to charge, the lights would all light up, and then nothing would happen. I have also had poor success with other similar, inexpensive remote control toys.
Count me out, I have been burned too many times. You get what you pay for, there is a reason real RC models are expensive. (And even the expensive ones are hard to get working right.)
