    Same here. I would spend a week or so building one these damn things and then take it out and try to fly it. It would end up all busted up. I would go get another one. They were .89 to 2.99 depending how complex and large they were.

    My son bought my husband these for Christmas. They're called Metal Earth, they're 3-D laser cut metal models. Extremely cool.

    They snap? Glue? I'd like to solder one of those together.
