As other reviewers have mentioned, the additional weight of the camera makes controlling the altitude of the S107C a bit harder than the S107, at least at first before you get used to it ... until you learn to control the throttle more carefully, it'll tend to bob up and down a bit. Turning and moving backward/forward is as easy as with the S107.
For some reason, my S107C won't charge off of USB power, either from my PC or from an AC wall adapter. It only charges off the controller. No idea why.
My camera was already installed (some reviewers seem to imply that they had to install it themselves), and it's not necessary to remove the camera and transfer the MicroSD card to a card reader, as the instructions state ... I was able to connect the supplied download cable directly from my PC (Win 8) to the camera while the camera was still in the copter, and download the pictures and videos without a problem.
As other reviewers have stated, it is necessary for the blades to be moving (throttle not in completely-down position) in order to use the controller to turn the camera on and off. The instructions don't mention this. I was surprised by the quality of the video shot, given the small size and cost of the camera ... picture is relatively small, but clear with good colors, and very little "jiggle" from the copter.
Getting the controller to "pair" with the copter is a little tricky ... sometimes I've had to turn the controller off then on, and the copter off then on, in some kind of magic combination ... other times they seem to pair right away.
The S107C is solidly built, like the S107. I've already crashed it several times without anything breaking, though the blades are getting nicked up a bit ... no big deal, I can replace them cheaply in the future if I want.
Good copter, lots of fun!

I have crashed this thing several times.Rammed it into the ceiling in our house, freaked out and shut down the rotors and had it come crashing to the ground. I am still learning how to fly it, and I am improving. My 5 year old daughter is doing better than I am at it. I have learned that when the furnace is on, blowing through the vents, It can make flight a little harder. We also have a space heater that blows out and shutting it off helped as well. It is possible to blow on this thing and cause it to crash. it is small and lightweight.
Now if you are expecting something that you will be able to fly for hours - its not this. You have at most 10 minutes of flight time before you have to charge the battery for 30 minutes. This is in part done to keep the helicopter lightweight, I do believe there are upgrade kits available that will allow you to put in a heavier battery that will hold more charge. But I think that may only take you to 15 minutes of flight time. It might be better served to take the camera off if you are going to do that and you may extend the flight time longer. There are more expensive helicopters with better batteries available.
If I had paid $100 for this helicopter, I wouldn't be as happy with it - probably 2 stars (I mean come on, I can blow on it and it falls out of the sky). I paid about $30, and that seems a reasonable price. At $50, you would probably be pushing it a bit. Past $50 I wouldn't buy it. Its a fun toy and gets me started on flying and handling so I can move up to the more advanced units.
I would suggest buying this for a fun toy that will both provide fun for children and teach them patience. My daughter eagerly awaits the USB cord lighting up so she can fly it again. When the USB cord lights up, its ready to fly.
It's funny though, my daughter complained when she saw me looking these up on Amazon, and my wife made fun of me for getting one. Both of them have flown it and had fun with it. I think almost anyone can have fun with this.
Picture quality seems good. The camera came with a 2GB microSD card.
