This review is from: Syma S107/S107G R/C Helicopter *Colors Vary (Toy)
Length:: 0:23 Mins

I am not a Heli expert but can say I have owned an Electric Falcon with Auto Pilot ($250-350), a Coco Lama (great heli $75) and the first micro heli($19). The s107 is fun and VERY stable, you really can't ask for more, it will go back and forward very easily, it would literally be a work of engineering at this price if it had better turning. Let me explain- it vertical controls are quick and presice, it goes up and down very easy and with power, it turns to the right or left by a light touch. What it is lacking is horizontal yaw. But guess what it's a toy and so cheap that I must say outside of this it's a blast! I love my Coco Lama, its bigger and worth every penny, yet this micro is sturdy and has great controls, it's a steal for 30-35 total, its built very well and strong, I truly believe its going to be around a long time and if not the parts are cheap. I truly believe it could go for $70-100 so it's the best bang for the buck! I hear there is a walker out there that is great but its $100. I question how much better and fully applaud Syma and Xheli for making it cheap. I also feel it's a great learner heli, oh yes. You get this thing down when you step up will have the basics down. BUY it! For this price it's a 5 You will not be wasting money its worth every penny!

Would you recommend Coco Lama if money was not an issue? Since I want to also fly outdoors, I would rather spent extra $ for a heli that would satisfy both environments. This would be my first heli anyway so I don't know really what to expect. Just looking for your advice.

You seem like an expert on these RC helicopters. I bought the 107G and we crashed it yesterday and broke the main shaft. Can you recommend a parts source? Also, is there somewhere we can get a manual so we know how to take it apart and get it back together? Your help is much appreciated.

Could FLY 4 God "flyingbroker" please respond to this. Just like Blue Diver had said and such, could you recommend to me which Coco Lama helicopter you bought for $75 and how long does it take to charge/fly time for the Coco Lama product you bought as well as the length of time to charge/fly for THIS product. By the way, anyone can feel free to respond and such to the questions because ultimately I just want them answered.

It takes me about 1 hr for a full charge. Run time is over 5 minutes. The very first day, one month ago, it charged 40 minutes and flew for 7, that's when I have measured it. Now I just fly and crash almost daily. The best toy for an adult yet :-) My 18mo son loves to watch daddy fly the heli into the furniture. Seriously, the flight experience of this little toy for $25 is amazing. I couldn't be happier. Got one for a brother-in-law too.
