The word on the mods is that the best thing to do is remove the spring that returns the throttle back to zero, so you can control the height more accurately. Also, you can remove some of the structure for more power/speed.
 
Now all you need is a dead cat
 
WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP SHOWING ME THINGS I WANT TO OWN?!
 
Pah, I posted the flying cat to Facebook on Tuesday, laggards! I also want to claim credit for introducing Dave to the 'copter ;-)
 
PS - if you copter end up on the floor its side after a little pilot error, you can usually right it again by flicking the thrust lever - the rotor spasm often flicks it up. Also, you can fly under things just 3 inches high by not applying enough thrust to take off, but pushing the direction lever forward/back etc - it then just drags along the floor :-)
 
I tried it in my living room - I have a lot of black, shiny surfaces - since I'm a goddamn pimp - and this causes the copter to randomly cut out and drop suddenly. Also, two of the channels cause my set top box and TV to turn off - but you won't need to worry about this for 18 months ;)

Flies awesome everywhere else though.
