First, I purchased a red S107G for 22$ and was blown away. However, after a multitude of crashes related to hitting the ceiling my first one was beginning to show wear (rotor blades dented/chiped, broken canopy brace, led not centered, vertical stabilizer cracked awaiting it next crash to come off) within one week.
Second, I purchased a second 107G and it came as yellow. The first thing I noticed was the yellow one, while completely identical other than color, was much more powerful and battery lasted longer. As a result, it was more fun and more difficult to fly than red.
Third, being that I am former active duty helocopter mechanic (CH-53a,d,e, T64-GE-416) for the Marines, I bought the S108G (Cobra). Folks, the Cobra is a completely different helo all together. The collective (vertical control) is not spring loaded like the S107G. Not only that, the Cobra is much more robust in its response and power and can be difficult to manage. This is troublesome to me as the Cobra's body and frame appears to be completely plastic (as apposed to the S107 having a metal frame). Also, the Cobra has one solid white light which I prefer to the flashing blue and red o the S107G. Because the collective is not spring loaded you can make it hover and set the controls down on a table it still flies. Sometimes I forget to return the collective to zero when I crash. The Cobra has lost reception several times and when it does it falls from the air and crashes. The Cobra appears to "Pop and Click" like a Marine should--no kidding. It can speed around room much faster than the others and turns much more quickly. In fact, the other seems sluggish in comparison and it is easy to "oversteer.Read more ›
I would say most of the bad reviews on here are from people who have gotten unlucky with their particular unit. All pilots crash but I think some get lucky and avoid damage whilst others get unlucky and do damage to the motors. I’ve been lucky, so I can’t complain and I’ve really nailed my s107 hard into walls, rooves and even the TV, oops.
This heli gets the thumbs up from me. I also bundled a helipad with the heli which has got LED lights built into it for night time flying. Definitely a cool accessory. You can check it here:

A couple of things I’ve figured out over the years with the Syma choppers:
1. Expect to crash if you are near airconditioners or open windows. Any small breeze will get hold of these micro helis.
2. The remote is infrared, so you can not fly outdoors as the sun will interfere with the connection between remote and helicopter.
3. The wheel on the remote is a trim wheel, adjust this to stop the heli from spinning in circles.
4. On some of the remotes you will see a switch for A, B, C. This means the helicopter has 3 bands, so you can potentially fly 3 of the helis in the same space. But if 2 of the helis are on the same band, you will get interference and start flying the other persons heli. This is absolute mayhem when it happens, so try to avoid it.
Syma makes a number of very slick little helicopters - I have bought several different models for the nephews and relatives, and everyone loves them. This helicopter, the cobra, looks good and flew very well. All of the Symas we tried so far fly extremely well out of the box. The Blackhawk and Chinook flew very well. The challenge with this particular (Cobra) helicopter is the landing gear. After a few crashes, the strut on 1 of the landing gear broke, meaning that on the ground, the helicopter won't stand up perfectly straight. No big deal - right? Wrong. If the helicopter isn't standing up straight, it won't take off straight, and will probably crash into something before it stabilizes. The Blackhawk and Chinook have different landing gear which are more durable.
For those of you who are first time pilots, focus on hovering for your first few flights. Just tweak the controls to try and keep the helicopter in 1 place. If you can master hovering, the rest gets a lot easier.
Syma's mini helicopters are only for indoor use. The problem with flying them outdoors is wind - the smallest puff of a breeze makes the helicpters uncontrolable.
For those of you who don't know much about Syma's RC helicopters, here is how they work:
1. Stabilization: For real helicopters, the tail rotor controls rotation. Without a tail rotor, a real helicopter would be unable to turn, and would actually spin out of control. The motor for the main rotor wants to spin the fuselage in the opposite direction of the rotation of the main propeller. Think about it - if you were to magically "hold" the propeller in place, the fuselage would spin.Read more ›
