    I wouldn't buy anymore of them. Just have one. First addition so its louder. They are small so don't expect it to be bigger than a deadly or sillosock flier. Didn't really notice any difference in the hunt. Much prefer to spend the money on a vortex that actually moves decoys around instead of a flier sitting in one spot flapping its wings.

    Based on experience, I'd be wary of that Chinese manufacturing at that price point. You could purchase a made in the USA model (Sno-Bot) for the same price, and with superior customer service.

    They are pretty cool looking but we used the Sillosock flapping decoy and you can get about 4-5 of them for just one of these Clone's. The Sillosock flapper needs some work in terms of how noisy they seem to be but once you crank up the ecaller volume and if you keep the flappers close to the kill hole the noise is really a non-factor…….just annoying as hell to listen to. Good luck.
