Helicopter Syma Introduction
After flying this Syma S107G heli indoors for about one month, I have to say that this thing is one of the most under-rated RC heli out there. I got a red(+blue, yellow) one, and find it great fun to fly. It has only 3-way controls, but competes surprisingly well with the likes of the Blade MCX2 with 4-way controls , anyone can hover it easily.
Helicopter Syma Double-Deck Design
I am very pleased with the quality, with Double-deck propeller, alloy fuselage, vernier adjustment, knob design and gyro, which help it stay steady and flexible during flight. The trim metal body and snug plastic hood fit well. Made of alloy fuselage, it is very light weight and almost indestructible in any crash, perfect for very first time beginners. After many trial, I am literally surprised that I haven’t broken it yet.
Also, Helicopter Syma is fairly easy to control. The controller has two different joy sticks: One is for throttle, the other for control. It can fly in 6 directions: Rotate Clockwsie / Anti-Clockwise, Move Forward / Backward, Move Up / Down.
That blinking navigational light in the Syma S107G Helicopter Syma nose makes it look positively sentient when it is hovering in front of you. Really a great night flyer!
Helicopter Syma Adequate Battery Charge
Meanwhile, the included USB cable allows the Helicopter Syma to be recharged in just around 30 mins or less, when you plug it into a PC/Tablet. You can also charge it direct from the remote. Well, I’ve got about 7 minutes of flight time after charging it every 30-40 minutes. The Syma S107G has a built in rechargeable battery. The remote control itself takes 6 AA batteries, so you may need to buy some when giving it as a gift to someone else.
You’ll find this little guy a big fun!!
