These things are really great!! I bought one for my kids for Christmas 2 years ago, and they love it! This is by far the best price I've seen for them.

Mine doesn't have an autopilot function, and I doubt these do either. Don't get your hopes up about that.

I give this to the kids 2 years ago..think I got it for like $30. The kids killed the shark in less than a day. Lol

Not really autopilot. Per the description:

"or use autopilot feature which has 3 speed settings that allows fish to move freely, as in, without you doing anything"

Speed settings are NOT autopilot - they're speed settings. :(

These will go great in my remote control giant inflatable fish tank. I just hope my remote control giant inflatable cat doesn't eat them.

These things are frustrating to put together and last mere minutes before parts start falling off. They are very large and take up more room in the house than you might expect, so you'll want to deflate them between uses. I deflated ours after one day and tossed it, except for the remote control, receiver and motor of course.

Fun toy but it is literally put together with packing tape. Day one and every single piece fell off the shark, had fins stuck to my ceiling.
A bottle of contact cement and now everything is now secured. These also don't come with the helium, you need to find that on your own.

How does the remote attach to the balloon? Once the fish is dead, can I attach it to other helium balloons to control? I have an airwalker Mickey Mouse and 3 ft Tinkerbell that might be amusing the drive around the house. :-)

This remote is infrared (line of sight control).

I'd highly recommend the ones with radio control (can operate with walls between remote & toy). They do cost more I believe...

Be careful in regards to altitude!
I'm at 4000 ft and the only way I could them to float was to remove a couple of pieces and over inflate them with pure helium. (which ain't cheap)

Bought one for my nephew a while back. Inflated it at the local grocery store's floral department for about $5. It lasted a couple of days before it died. It sure was fun while it worked though! For this price it may be worth it even if it only lasts a day or two.

@ericbeau: the helium was a pain to find. Many stores refuse to fill helium into balloon that isn't bought from them. Think I had to pay another $15 for the helium at the 5th store that finally willing to fill the helium.

I think they sell the helium tank for $18, but I didn't want to risk it. Not sure if 1 tank can fill this huge shark.

Also, the balloon keep floating up. It's better if you can grow another 2 arms to hold it. :D

These are fun for the kids, but as someone said they do take up alot of room. Also, the helium tanks you can buy at Walmart went up in price in the past year or so, from about 25 bucks to over 40 now and from what I read on Amazon, the tanks don't have enough real helium to keep these toys afloat and on top of that they can only fill one or two of these. I took mine to the local grocery store and they filled it for a buck and a half and this thing is still floating after two weeks but a little deflated now. Save some money and don't buy a tank, take it to a floral or grocery store.
