Add A Part Missing From Syma S032,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 3.5-Ch Metal Indoor RC Helicopter S032G (Toy)
I Purchased The Syma S032 Thinking it would Fly Like My Syma S107. Well, at first I thought : "Hey This sucks!" It didn't fly like my S107. It Kept Trying to Go To The Right. No Matter what I did in trim it still would not lift off like the S 107. Until.... I took a long look at both Helicopters. On The Syma S 107 there are two ball link connectors and on the S 032 there is only ONE!! Well, I purchased a couple of extra parts and added the link...VIOLA!!!! It Flies as Perfect Now as The S-107. I suggest if you purchase this Helicopter, look it over when you get it and purchase the link if it is not there. The Manufacturer and Sellers, should take note and add that part for buyers. It's a cheap add on. (I suggest include it at no charge) And you will have as Happier Customer!!!

What are these ball link connectors and where do you get them?

If You Look At The Picture On This Page For The Review You'll see The Links are at the top of The Shaft on the Blades. They Look Like little Bar Bells. they Connect the Top Blade To The Counterweight Bar. You Can Purchase them through, Xheli.com or RC Hobbiy's. Any R/C Helicopter Store That Carries Parts. They also are on e-bay. They Cost about $4.oo For 2 Links. And they just snap on!

Hmmm....And after that it flies with the stability of the Syma S107? Does the S032 fly well outdoors? I already have the S107 but now I am looking for an outdoor helicopter. Do you recommend the S032 as an outdoor helicopter?

Yes, For Both. It Flies well indoors & out, though the wind should be calm if you are flying outside. It is a very nice Helicopter and Good as a Starter. Because of The Gyroscope control it's easier to play with & Is Very Stable! One Recommendation though, Don't Let Your Cat chew on the Blades. This will cause a poor hover as the blades will be bent!! (LOL:)

Hey Jeffrey. Thanks for the info. I think you have just talked me into buying it. I just have a few more questions which are not obvious in the product description. What is the charge time and what is the flying time on a full charge? Does it come with a wall charger? Thanks again for your feedback.

Hi Mike, It's A Good Buy. Charge Time, First Time at Least 4 to 8 Hours. Then 45 Minutes There after. It Has a Wall Plug in Unit, that plugs right into the Helicopter. Full Flight Time about 10Minutes on a Full Charge. About Two If The Cat Grabs It In the Air!!(Personal Experiance) And If You Like That Helicopter , I Also recommend The Eagle Eye It Is a Little Larger & The Advance Model Has A Video Camera In The Helicopter to see from the sky via your computer. If You Need anymore help, or have more questions, you can contact me at: "DrChopper@wi.rr.com" Jeff

What do you think of the the Syma Shark? Do you know anything about it? It is about $10 cheaper than the S032 and seems to have some decent reviews:
Syma New 3 Channels Helicopter - The Alloy Shark - Forward, Backward, Left, Right + Free Rear Rotor Blade

I Have Seen the Shark, But have not flown it. I Like The Syma 032 Better. It Is A Little Nicer I Think From The Shark. And Remember, you get what you pay for.

I bought the S032. It is nice, but unlike other reviewers, I definitely don't see 10 minutes of flight time on a full charge. I only see 6 or 7 minutes (6 to 7 minutes is what the manual actually says is the flight time on a full charge). Also it takes exactly one hour to charge, not 45 minutes.
By the way, have you tried charging the Syma S107 using the S032 charger?
