To glow or not to glow

 Sun 17th Apr 2016
Hi, I'm after some advice as I have not flown a heli for years in fact the CSM360 was the top of the range gyro at the time moving on to the Csm 5.. And dabbled now and then with heli's

Glow was the only the real option but Lipo's seem almost the only option?

I like the idea of glow as I could get a lot of flying done in a short time (hopefully) or has charging the batteries improved dramatically? Googling this there seems to be a lot of contradicting info.

Any thoughts?

Views on first indoor helicopter choice

Is the Swift Master II S002 a good choice as an indoor starter model? Do I need lots of spare blades? Do these models normally come with a controller in the box? (its unclear on the web site). The box costs 27.99 down from 47.99. Thanks
