"This set was extremely disappointing. I am currently collecting most, if not all, fire related sets in order to build an awesome fire station in my LEGO city, and in doing so I like to add cool items like this that can be taken out of the city for demonstration. However, this set is a complete let down. It's a basic set and that is understandable, however, this rip cord helicopter does not fly. When pulled with a great amount of force, the only thing it does is spin up about 1/2 inch and then spin around (with no stability) into the ground. I've purchased a lot of LEGO sets and this is by far the worst. Don't buy this for anyone because it will be a let down."
