Was very disappointed
So sorry you're disappointed. Most people love them and theirs fly great. Just read all the 4 & 5 Star reviews on our website or on FB! The ones you see fly in our videos are identical to the ones we ship out to hundreds of people each and every day. The only difference is who is winding it and how it's wound. May we ask, did you watch this video regarding the proper way to wind your Butterflyer to get maximum flying effect (https://bit.ly/2qgEbOT) and this one on how best to place them in a greeting card (https://bit.ly/2DSGezJ)? The links to both of these videos were sent to you in the shipping and order confirmation emails you received. 99% of the time when people say their Butterflyer isn't flying so well, it's because they are not winding it correctly. In short, you want to be 100% for sure you are winding CLOCKWISE, 30-35 full turns and that you have an entire row of double (almost triple) knots on the rubber band. The rubber band is the engine that propels these things. So, if you do not wind it enough, they will not fly very well because it won't get enough lift. Remember, "Wind it tight and it will fly just right!"
I got these for my grandsons and I'll be putting them in cards for each one, so they haven't opened them yet. I am going to try to get a video when they do! I have a feeling they'll go over very well!
They are such a surprise when friends and family open their cards they get so excited, then they laugh. They love them and so do I.
I have placed the I Love NY into X-mas cards for those friends who were raised in NYC but moved out of state. I can't wait for their phone calls. Oh,yes they will call and not text because they will have a lot to say. I gave the staff the other Butterflyers and was told they jumped and yelled when their cards were opened. I truly love these.
