Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Syma S107/S107G R/C Helicopter *Colors Vary (Toy)
I wanted to give this a five star rating, but instead I decided to give it a one because I thought it would be more heplful to others to post in the bad review section. Again, I give this a 5 star rating.
The reason Im posting in bad reviews is because I see a lot of reviews saying that the heli wont go more than a couple of inches off the ground. This also happened to me. What happened is I didnt read the instructions. The transmitter throttle must go through a self calibration when you turn it on or else the heli wont get full throttle. Here is how to do it (it is in the instructions)
1. Heli turned off.
2. Turn on transmitter.
3. Move throttle to full position.
4. Move throttle to lowest position.
5. Turn heli on.
That must be done or else it wont fly right.

Your one-star rating makes absolutely no sense. Seems like you gave it a poor rating because "you" didn't read the instructions. Do you not understand the simple concept of a product review???

Thank you for posting this comment here. I'm one of those people who only skim through the instructions in my rush to fly the heli. The one star rating was the first place I looked. I thought posting it here was a stroke of genius on your part. Others will obviously disagree.

The instructions that were provided were in broken English. I appreciate the helpful input otherwise I would have had to guess what the manufacturer was trying to dictate.

I too only read negative reviews. Although I have mixed feelings about giving a good product bad reviews, I get what you are doing. Thanks for the info.
