First to address some of the comments from other reviewers... For the guy who said there is no yaw trim adjustment on the TX - check out the little thumbwheel on the right side of the TX, there's your trim adjustment. For the guy who couldn't charge from computer USB, mine charges just fine using the USB cable that came with the S110g.

I have 4 other Syma 3-ch helicopters, the S107g, S108g, S111g, and the S026g. All flew great right out of the box. Not so with the S110g. First flight the helicopter took off, I easily trimmed out the yaw, and it flew for a few seconds before exhibiting a bad case of TBE (toilet bowl effect). It smashed into the wall and 2 parts came off. At first I couldn't tell where the parts came from but they were the covers for the LED lights and just snapped back into place no problem. TBE is NOT when the helicopter rotates around the main rotor axis, that is yaw and that is what the trim control takes care of. TBE is when the helicopter swirls around in a big circle like it is being flushed down the toilet while trying to hover. A little internet searching revealed the possible causes - either a binding flybar or binding upper rotor hub hinges on hinged-blade machines like the Symas. My flybar wasn't binding and the hinges seemed OK, but as an experiment I used a jeweler's screwdriver to carefully loosen the upper blade mounting screws by 1/4 turn, just in case they were a little tight. Couldn't hurt. Then went for a test flight and the TBE was completely cured! Now it flies completely stable and is as responsive as any of its bigger brothers.

So aside from the little TBE problem that was easily fixed (and by fixing it I learned a lot about how these little guys work) it's a cool little helicopter and amazingly small.

Received the Syma 110 a few days ago and have been flying it like crazy since. flew great right out of the box with only a little tweeking to the yaw easy to fly in small rooms and very responsive, the only downside is the battery life which is to be expected with such a small heli but can fly on a full charge for about 5 mins. love the usb charger but not the location of the charging port which is on the bottom rather than the side but no big deal all in all great deal flys better than my $60 brookstone copter that ive already broke 2of. i recommend this for any beginner to experienced rc helicopter enthusiast great to add to a collection or to start one with.

I bought the Heli for $18.45 and its a great deal. It charges very fast and flies very stable. It goes forward and back very quickly. The heli is very small but very strong. Its also educational because I learned how helicopters work! The Wings are very strong and the lights it shoots out are cool. The Heli is metal with plastic on it but the plastic is very strong. The Remote has no spring so remember to pull down when your landing! It has Gyro which means it auto - stablizes itself. My other heli, Syma s012 lasted for 4 days. I think this heli will last with me forever!

Ok, I'm just fed up with all the rediculous complaints in so many reviews for this, it's just silly.
First, to the people who say it's not durable enough. Well, if you crash it (or ANY other low cost toy)enough times or have a bad crash (due to lack of flying skill, no doubt), guess what? It's going to break! Just because you can't fly the thing without having a bad enough crash to break something, that doesn't mean it's not durable, it means you need more practice. And I also saw one reviewer give it a low score because "IT SEEMS LIKE IT WILL BREAK EASILY." Are you kidding me? It SEEMS like it would break? Give ME a BREAK.
I even saw one reviewer complain about how it spins and there's no trim knob. Huh? How about this: Read the manual. Then, actually LOOK at what you're holding in your hand. Observe the TRIM WHEEL? Give that a shot before coming on Amazon to bash something that you're clearly not knowledgeable enough about to even review in the first place.
There's even a couple good reviews that have some absurd claims in them. Concerning runtime, there is no way whatsoever that anyone gets 10 minutes or more of flight time. It's IMPOSSIBLE to achieve. The motors draw a certain amount of juice, the battery has only so much to give, you can't change the laws of physics. Maybe you can get the rotor to spin for 10 minutes, but actually flying for that long? Not gonna happen, sorry. I guess some people think it's impressive to be "that guy" who's got a heli which defies the laws of physics and works better than anyone elses does.
Think of this as a micro s107g, but as size decreases things get more sensitive and twitchy. If you suck at flying then don't buy a heli that's the size of a large insect. You're gonna crash it then come here and cry about it not being durable enough. Yeah, the transmitter exaggerates the already sensitive flying characteristics of such a tiny heli, but you will overcome this with practice, and then come to appreciate it as being responsive.

This helicopter is very fun to fly, built well and flies about 10 minutes on a charge. I have many indoor helicopters several 107's, warbirds etc. some are rc and the others are infrared. This one is by far the smallest and is much quicker than the 107's. I'm pleased I added it to my collection.

I'm Happy

Great Little indoor helicopter. Its so tiny and is perfect for indoor flying. For the size of the helicopter, it is very durable. Although the plastic rotorhub did break when Dad put it done for a very hard landing, due to operator error. That piece is easy to replace. Very steady flyer and fairly long battery run time. Overall and neat helicopter to own. I would recommend this to anyone.

I bought this little S110g after getting an S109g for Christmas. Fly one, charge one - you know. Now that it is tuned in it is a fun little copter with a cool whirring sound as it zips around the house. Comparing it to the S109g it is a little less stable in flight and wobbles some in hover. It is easier to set down on a TV tray or a target on the floor than the S109g because it does not skid around on a ground effect cushion like the bigger 109. So far, for such a delicate looking thing, it seems to take the same pounding in crashes as the 109. The landing skids are already bending at the tips and will be a prime replacement part. All the skid tips do is get caught in carpeting anyway. Maybe a redesign would be in order. Flight time is 7:00 minutes or so, a little less than the 109.

Here are some issues about it, its performance, and what can be done to compensate:

1. launched to the ceiling at first throttle click upon every fresh charge, no matter now slowly I moved the stick. Solution is to hold it in hand and bleed off a few seconds of run time and set it down. Then it is fine.

2. Flew for a minute and slowly descended to the floor at full throttle. When rested for a minute, did the same thing. That was a tough one. Discovered that the rotor drive gear hubs were pressing against each other due to the top rotor being mounted down too low on its shaft and pushing the gear hubs together. Solution was to loosen the top rotor mounting screw, pull the rotor assembly upward, and retighten the screw. The premature descent must have been due to friction from thermal expansion in flight. Now the chopper goes constantly until the battery drains.

3. the diagonal tail struts and the horizontal fin they lead to do nothing for the unit but add weight and balance. (discovered this when investigating the rotor drive gear issue) Upon reassembly I left off the struts and tail fin. The chopper then had a hard forward bias. So I remounted the tail fin and left off the struts. Now the S110g has just enough forward bias to zip around the living room FAST and still back up a little when sticked that way.

4. hairs and carpet fibers get into the exposed drive gears. The only solution is to check for this and remove them with tweezers.

Giving the S110g a "4" overall rating because of all the tuning that had to be done it, that "jump to the ceiling" tendency it has at start-up, and the skimpy landing skids.

The Syma S110G is palm size and perfect for indoor flight. It as a Christmas present for my 9-year old and he picked it up and flew his first flight with absolutely no crashing. It is easy to fly and stable. It is really fun to move through tight spaces. Heli's also provide for great flight learning tools... teaching lift, 3D flight and other principles.

The Syma S110G micro RC is fun enough to fly, but I have a concern about its long term durability. The canopy is hinged near the skids to allow it to swing up for access to the battery and electronics.

It does this a little TOO readily, and does not want to return easily without bending the corners near the two side-mounted white LEDs.

The product description claims "nearly indestructible", yet I had issues with the canopy after only a handful of relatively low-impact indoor impacts. Product description claims 7 minutes run time per charge, while the included manual claims 3-4 minutes.

Instructions are written in almost self-parodying bad English:
-"Motor heating components, don't touch, avoid scald"
-"When the helicopters received the transmit, the led of circuit board will turn light"
You can't make this stuff up.
