Syma S107G 3Ch coaxial micro heli with gyro Review

All S107 helis at Xheli
3CH helis with Gyros at Xheli
S107 at HobbyPartz (search S107)
S107 at Amazon.com (sometimes free super saver shipping)

I initially purchased one as a gift from Xheli. I test flew it and then wrapped it up as a gift. All went well. I wanted an additional tough 3Ch coaxial for my kids to fly so I purchased another Syma S107G from Hobbypartz (inexpensive or free shipping).  The helicopter is a little heavier than the Phoenix 6010 that I previously purchased but just as tough.  In comparison, the Syma is heavier and a bit slower in forward flight. The Syma however handles the air from the airconditioner vent better. The Syma also has a more proportional tail control. So forward flying and turning is easer & more precise on the Syma.  There is no shortage of places to get spare parts from and I had ordered a set of spare blades and rear prop from Xheli on a later spare parts order I made for my other helicopters.  The S107G is a very popular 3Ch indoor heli currently and you will find no shortage of fans of this heli out there. Neither my kids nor I have yet to perminanty damage the helicopter (see TIPS below). But don't consider them indestructable.  But for the price, they are a great addition to ANY experianced flyer to have to take a quick flight indoors, even in a small room. My S107G was a Revision 5 circuit board.

Here are som TIPS on the S107G
Power Up sequence
  1. Set Tx to channel A
  2. Lower throttle. Turn on Tx
  3. Turn on Helicopter and set down. 
  4. There is an LED that will stop flashing under the canopy on the back left of the circuit board when it's initialized. This takes 5-10 seconds.
  5. Slowly raise throttle.
