The gyro works. It's mentioned in the instruction, but I'll say it again. You need to set the heli on a leveled surface as soon as you insert the battery, because it will initialize the gyro right after that and uses it as the "base" meaning the heli will always try to return to this position during flight until next initialization. So imagine the heli's "base" is in a tilted position... Not fun! Fly indoor first if the space is big enough, or fly outside when there is NO WIND during your leaning period. I'd still call it a toy, but there is still a little bit of learning curve, because the heli is very agile and the control is very sensitive compared to the indoor infra-red 3.5-channel model. If the gyro is initialized correctly then it should hover pretty easily. After some trimming, it will hover by itself, and then you will have some serious fun! Remember, crashing is inevitable, at least for me, so practice practice and practice. This little bird can take some `unintentional beatings'. There are a lot of cheap replacement parts you can on eBay, so don't worry about your wallet being too shallow. Some personal advice: I'd buy another charger and some high capacity (200 mah) batteries to allow more, if not continuous, flying time. I also bought a few replacement canopies and replaced the original one before I destroy it. The shark face is just too cool!
That's all. I hope that would help you making the final decision. Any comment is welcome. Thanks for reading.
I ended up getting another v911 and absolutely loved it so I had to try this heli out again. Wow, what a difference the 2nd one made. It hovers like a dream and flies so smooth. I don't think I was being very fair on my first review. However, there are 2 warnings about the batteries:
1. The charger that comes with the normal v911 is much better than the h911. The v911 charger is very dependable and charge lights are accurate. However, the h911 charger is just plain junk. The light indicators simply don't work. See my original review on the battery charger below.
2. I definitely recommend buying the batteries that Amazon says are typically bout together with the heli. The 2 stock batteries are fine but the additional 5 have more power, longer flight times, and you can fly over and over without waiting for another battery to charge.
SUMMARY: As you can see from my original review, I'm eating my words. I've now realized this heli is actually very good. Once you get the hang of how it flies, it's a blast indoors. I still believe this is an indoor heli only. Flying outside (in my opinion) in incredibly difficult anyway. With this tiny heli, it had better be nearly 0 mph of wind outside.
Really wanted to like this heli...but no.
Let me start off by saying that I would consider myself a beginner pilot that is just now transitioning into intermediate so please consider that with this review. I'm also 33 years old and not some kid that doesn't have good hand-eye coordination. I've played a lot of video games and understand the basics of a 4 channel helicopter.
I (like many others) loved flying my syma s107 but quickly became bored with it. I pretty much mastered the syma s107 in a couple days or maybe 15 flights. I was able to land it on the coffee table and a chair easily. I could even fly it in the small opening of my staircase railing in my basement. Because my friend turned me on to RC helis with the BLADE series, I quickly wanted to upgrade to a 4 channel. I had flown his Blade 120 SR so I knew how a 4 channel heli should operate.
I read a lot of reviews and finally decided to purchase this heli. It's an exact clone of the WL toys v911 and their are a ton of people out there that liked it so this seemed like a perfect fit. I liked the fact that this heli was still the v911 with a cooler paintjob. It was a cheap and easy way of transitioning into a 4 channel helo because it can be flown indoors and outdoors. (Outdoors? we will get to that later)
Everything crashed and burned (no pun intended) the second I got this heli. The first thing I did was attempt to charge the batteries. Wowzers, the charger this thing comes with is a joke. They claim it can charge 2 batteries at once...yea good luck with that. If you are even lucky enough to get the battery to sit at the perfect angle to get the red light to turn on, then the battery actually charges. Then try to put the 2nd battery in and the first light goes off. WTF! Seriously, I have now had the heli for over 1.5 hours and not even flown it for a second. The battery charging process on this setup is insanely frustrating. Awesome, so now I can only charge one battery at a time...barley. Also, it takes every bit of 30 minutes to charge a battery. Now I know this is normal for these batteries but if you can only charge one at a time that makes it just downright terrible. The battery issue with this heli was reason alone to return it to Amazon.
I finally got the batteries charged and TRIED to fly it. Started accelerating and it immediately took off to the left and slammed into the wall. OK? Maybe I was too cocky with flying my 3 channel and I was doing something wrong. Nope, I started researching online and noticed that many people have this same issue. Upon takeoff, the heli just immediately wants to go left...and sometimes forward. I finally realized, that I could overcome this by holding the right stick in the right direction when taking off. Tricky, but it was doable.
When I was finally able to get the heli off the ground for more than a few seconds...the battery starts going dead. Great, switch out the batteries. They claim the batteries will last 5-8 minutes but that is a matter of definition. Yes, technically the batteries power the motor for 8 minutes but that doesn't mean the heli actually operates normally for that long. What nobody will tell you is that when this heli starts to loose battery, it makes it nearly impossible to control. Furthermore, you trying to trim it out actually causes you to over-trim the heli make the next flight's trim setting completely out of whack.
Speaking of trimming the heli. (Yes I know how to trim properly) When I was finally able to get this heli to hover in my living room for more that a few seconds, I could start trying to trim it. The problem is that nearly every single direction needed to be trimmed! There was no amount of trimming I could do to keep this little bird steady. It was like it was made of metal and my walls were magnets of varying polarity. The copter just gravitated randomly in the room.
Ultimately, I was able to get the heli trimmed enough to finally star flying it around the room. Wow...that made matters worse. There are 3 major issue with this heli's movement.
1. Simply trying to go forward in a strait line is impossible. Every time I try to go forward, the heli goes forward AND to the left.
2. Just trying to turn either left or right is also an adventure because the heli can't do that without making big swooping u-turns. It's like trying to turn a boat. This becomes very problematic in a tight space.
3. Because the heli likes to go forward on it's own all the time, you are constantly trying to correct that by puling back on the stick. This is not only hard to do all the time but when you do it...the heli starts the "pendulum" effect. You will get it back when you want and then it immediately swings forward again. (This pendulum effect is noticeable in all directions by the way.)
I have heard of heli having the dreaded "toilet bowl effect" or TBE. I'm not totally sure this heli had that but it kinda seemed like it did. The second you actually get it in the air it slowly starts making 4 to 5 foot diameter circles in the air. I heard that you need to maybe level the swashplate? Or level the servos? I even tried putting dabs of silicone on all the dogbones and shaft. I heard that might help. None of this made any difference and why should I have do do any of it if it did? Another note...this heli droops to the right when it hovers. I'm told this is normal but it looks funny in the air and I swear it impacts its ability to hover in a steady position.
Oh yea, and when I was inspecting the gears to ensure proper movement, I noticed that the main gear was slightly warped. The engine gear still made proper contact but why the hell was it warped?
I started looking the the manual to see if maybe there was a easy explanation for all of this and it said that when you insert the battery, make sure the heli is on a level surface to ensure the gyros get proper alignment. Ummm what? Tying to get these batteries into the heli is hard enough as it is, let alone on a level surface.
I finally decided to take this heli outside. Maybe it would just do better outside. WOW was I wrong. In fact, taking it outside is what finally made me return it. I tried flying it with 0-5mph wind but you could have told me I was trying to fly it in a hurricane. This little thing can't stand up to the slightest breeze. Any amount of wind will send it floating into the air quickly and bringing it back is impossible. This is and indoor heli only...if you are lucky. Don't even bother taking it outside unless you are on a huge football field and don't mind running all over the place to catch it. So why bother buying this heli if it doesn't even fly well outdoors?
The only real positive aspect of this heli is it's durability. I obviously crashed it a few times, and it never broke.
I'm baffled by the positive reviews. Maybe I got a dud but I don't think so. I have read other reviews and people agree. This thing is just wild, finicky, impossible to trim, and too difficult to use.
Everyone tells you to transition to this heli to learn a 4 channel heli. Ironically, I think it would be easier to learn on a bigger and heavier heli. Like a v912, v913 or a MJX f645. Yea they are more expensive to repair but at least you can use them outside. Isn't that what everyone want's to ultimately do anyway...fly outside? So you might as well skip the helicopters that can't handle a slight breeze. It's very rare to fly on any day without a little breeze anyway. I don't know about you but if you wait for a perfect day with not breeze, you will be waiting a long time and what is the point of that? Flying indoors gets really boring, really fast. Since you are ultimately going to want to fly outdoors quickly anyway, then just skip straight to a bigger and heavier outdoor heli.
Also, I really loved learning the basics on the s107 but I could even argue not doing that and here is why: The "turn-left" and "turn-right" functions on the syma transmitter are handled by the right stick. But when you transition to a 4 channel heli, the "turn-left" and "turn-right" functions are handled by the left stick. This can be jarring for your brain.
To sum it up:
I really wanted to like this heli. It seemed like a perfect balance of everything I was looking for. It turned out to be everything I will avoid in the future. If this was my first heli and if I had not previously flown my friends blade 120 SR, it would have thrown in the towel and never tried flying helicopters again.
