if You want a small Helicopter to fly indoors get the Syma S107G great copter no issues at all
The trim knob on the control makes a dramatic improvement. But the torque on the helicopter changes as you throttle up and down. It's only possible to adjust the trim to where you keep the throttle most of the time. Making things worse, the throttle delivers a decreasing quantity of power to the rotors the longer you've been flying. This is a long way of saying that you spend all 5 minutes of flight time fighting the spin.
The spin makes it difficult to control the machine precisely. I can usually get about one halfway decent lap completed around the living room for each 5 minute flight. Precision landings or any type of trick is beyond the capability of this machine.
The spin problems lead to excess crashes. The crashes are brutal because the spin often drifts the helicopter into walls, fans, Christmas trees, etc, that chew through the leading edges of the rotor blades. The uneven surface reduces control and makes crashes even more likely.
The rear rotor pin started coming loose after 2 hours of flight time. The plastic bar locking the rotor in place snapped and it's not possible to fix, so I'm doomed to screwing it back in every 2 flights.
One positive thing I can say is that this machine has taken an absolute beating and still functions. My 1 and 3 year old boys like to "help" me after crashes. They love chasing it around and get a real kick out of watching me struggle to fly it.
My brother-in-law bought this helicopter http://www.amazon.Read more ›
this is fixed by something called trimming, which is controlled on remote, but to no end, did not help.
waste of money and time.
Warranty service was pretty good, no question asked and replacement part package was sent to me. I was able to fix this and it did take off. But you really need the right tool and skill to install the replacement parts.
Even I got it working, the helicopter has the problem of spinning by itself. I know there is a nob to adjust and I was able to adjust to the point that it doesn't spin anymore. But it can only stay in that condition for a few seconds and start to spin again.
A few days later, the remote control malfunctions. The helicopter moves forward when control is in the middle. It only stops when the control is all the way back, and you can never go backward.
Give it two star for the service. I don't buy it again.
On first flight it crashed, or course, and one rotor pale was bent.
2nd try and crash, the rotor blade came off, so we taped it back, but virtually on every crash, you are liable to break a rotor blade. a bind !
Once you get the hang of it, it is really super little toy.
there is a button that can adjust the "spin" which before taking off you make sure the heli does not rotate by adjustment, then off you go.
have ordered spare rotors, at 7$ a set, but do other heli's also have such a delicate structure ??
so 5 for flying it ( after getting the hang) and 1 or 2 * for durability.

Very sensitive controls. This helicopter will not stay still. No matter how much I adjust the trim, I can't control this thing.Published on January 26, 2014 by Chris N
We bought two Protocol Turbohawks. The first one broke a rotor on a crash (into our carpet) in about 4 minutes. Read morePublished on April 8, 2013 by TheOlDadInAZ
Why all the negative reviews? Yeah it will break, but if the rotars are spinning fast enough to raise the toy into the air and you let it hit the wall, then what do you expect? Read morePublished on January 15, 2013 by Jee Willickers
