One of the coolest and most versatile types of RC toys on the market today is most assuredly the four rotor helicopter (aka quadcopter), and this is especially true of the Alias High Performance Quad-Rotor Helicopter from LaTrax. That's because this copter can do a whole lot more than just fly. As its box boasts, the Alias is capable of "3D flips, rolls, and twists," and it is "fast and easy for anyone to fly!" So, just how well does the Alias live up to its box's boasting? This week I had the chance to put the Alias to the test and find out. Click through for full details on the Alias' flight-test performance results.
