Review: 30014 Police Helicopter Polybag

Here's the polybag itself.  Surprisingly, this was originally released in 2011.  I believe I picked this up for $3.99 at Target.  Which means it's $0.13 per piece.

Instructions and minifig.  Nothing special here.

Parts.  I mainly bought this for the Modified Plate 1x2 w/Bar,the Technic Axle and Pin Connector Angled #1, and the Modified Plates 1x1 w/Vertical Clip in blue.

Here's the 4P Frame and station I built from the set.  You can see the leftover pieces in the foreground.  I'd start statting the frame with 2Rd  (gun) / 1Y (radio) / 2W.

Can you build a frame, or frames, right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  Above.  (-10) (The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.)
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?  Yes.  (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?  No.  (-5)

Score: -5 (B-). It's a decent set, the only things holding it back from a better score are the cost and inclusion of the minifig which takes up 20% of the parts count.
