Customer Video Review Length:: 1:57 Mins I bought this for my girlfriend (26 yrs) who has never flown. Right from the box, she was able to hover and fly this with absolutely no problem. She is on her 5th charge now, and has not crashed once. This is a great heli for the money – no question about it.

(Ontario, Canada) – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: Verified Purchase(What’s this?) I must admit I was wondering whether the reviews were artificially written by the manufacturers/sellers,…. However, the first flight put me at rest…I am 80 used to fly big birds but this is great fun and now a few of my friends are enjoying the same S107’s. Expect quite a few spectacular crashes when people open doors or the airconditioning comes on when least expected. Improvements …Remove the nose and place a small weight ie. a nut in the nose and replace it to give the forward flight characteristics more momentum…then you can scoot around the room easily. Think I can now impress my wife that I could fly a larger one without destroying the house !!!!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (7) Reply 329 of 380 people found the following review helpful Flies great but only for a few minutes, December 26, 2010 By T. Peterson “chaos213” (Montana) – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: I bought this for my 10 year old. She has another Syma helicopter and it has lasted 2 years of flying and crashing so I chose another Syma. I thought the bult in gyro would add to the enjoyment and it does. The helicopter flies like a home sick angel! It is stable, will hover if you hold the throttle steady, can be accurately directed and easily flown without crashing. Sounds like perfection and at a very reasonable price. There is one problem that spoils the fun though. After about 2-3 minutes flight time it will not hold altitude. You can get it to climb by flying in a forward direction and extend you flight a couple more minutes or you can land it and let the battery recover for a few seconds and it will climb or hold altitude but only for another 10-15 seconds and then it begans decending again. Even if you do use the forward flying trick (a half dozen circles going forward will get you 3-4 feet altitude) or you shut it down for a few seconds to give you enough to climb to the five or six foot level where I usually fly to avoid the sofa you only get about 5 1/2 minutes total fly time half of which is psent trying to extend you flight time. It takes 30-40 minutes to charge the battery. The other rc copters we have owned took about 8-10 minutes. This could have been an amazing toy with a slightly bigger battery. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (14) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
