I posted this in a review but there is no real way on amazon to guarantee a genuine syma helicopter. From what I found out, if its shipped from Amazon, Amazon combines all inventory for the Syma S107G because the barcode/UPC is the same on the real and fakes. Search for "Amazon Commingled inventory" in google if you want the details. Just because you buy from a certain seller does not mean it is coming from the seller that supplied the inventory to Amazon. Once it is combined they do not know the source of the inventory so it is not able to be tracked. Some sellers are taking advantage of this and sending fake S107G's to Amazon to make more profit and they are getting combined with the real S107Gs. As a result, getting a real vs fake is just luck of the draw.

syma107.com recommends RC-Fever and Amazon. He never mentions HobbyDealz.

Got mine from ToysNGamesEtc and it seems real to me. Not sure how you tell the fakes though.

I just bought a Green one from Battery Superstore but hasn't arrived yet. Real ones have a green power on light on the controller and inside the Helicopter. Fake ones has a Red power on light on the controller and Helicopter. Learned it from Youtube. I hope mine isnt fake and i HOPE THIS HELPS ANYONE!

My helicopter came from HobbyDealz and is authentic (based on the suggestions on Syma107.com)
