I own four SYMA helos and they all have different characteristics.

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.

The helicopter I bought is the best I've ever had although I haven't had many. It flies perfectly and is very stable. It took a couple of tries to get it down but now it is very easy. Probably the best part about this helicopter is its durability. I have crashed this helicopter countless amounts of times and it is still holding strong! The battery time is about 10 minutes (which is actually pretty good for this size helicopter). It is just about perfect and highly advised!

This helicopter flew very well - for a while.

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.

I have the S107's (2 of them) also a DH-1(basically a S107 by another manufacturer) They are both very easy to fly, right out of the box, after trimming the S108G, I think it may even be a little easier to fly. The gyro in this heli will hold a straight line. With the 107's they tend to crab a little to one side or the other. The S108G was good right out of the box, but needed a litte fine tuning. That took all of about 20-30 seconds, and flies even better. For the price, this helicopter cannot be beat ($35.00) even if it was more expensive, it would still be worth the price!!!!

This is my first one of these little syma choppers. Awesome little beasts. I've crashed this thing no less than 50 times and its still alive. Every adult should own one. The handling of these things has come a long way from when they were first introduced. Just watch the pricing -- I bought this one a week or two ago for $19 and change, and now they jacked the prices to over $25. The metal versions were $21 and change, and now they're selling them for $29. Great Christmas spirit there you greedy sellers. Things are supposed to go on SALE for Christmas, not be increased in price.
