Yes, unlike airplanes, these hydros do not glide well, so losing power can be very frustrating when you are 30 feet in the air.
Just ask me how I know! lol

Oh, and applying any packing tape near the black skidplates makes them grip the road, so much so that the friction will prevent you from taking off. I applied the tape to help promote structural integrity, which it does very well, but now it will not rotate under its own power. I have to toss it to launch. The tape has to come off, because a ground launch is more cool!
