Unlike many other helicopters of this size, the Nano S2 has collective pitch which provides a far more dynamic flight experience than would otherwise be the case.
The fuselage and frame is highly durable meaning it can take a hit. This is great for those who are just getting started out with RC helicopter flying.
The powerful coreless motor that turns the main rotor is capable of some serious performance needed for 3D aerobatics.
Under the hood, you can get access to the inner workings of the RC helicopter. Spares are available, but you shouldn't ever need any.
The battery that powers this setup (included in the RTF and BNF versions) is a 150mAh 1S LiPo with a 45c rating which gives you plenty of 'punch'.
