Syma S107 helo rocks

Got my Syma 107 coptor from Amazon yesterday. Boy for $22, your fun to money ratio is going to be excellent.

Even my 9 year old daughter was able to figure out how to fly and hover after a few tries.

Quite good stability and flight (and I've never had one of these before)

I had 3 extremely cheapo copters before that one (although they cost me the same or more).

They all broke quickly, but the Syma S107 had really taken some abuse and keeps on keepin' on.

Mine is red. My wife got it for Xmas for me. She paid more than $22. I agree, it's a blast.

we got it yesterday, I showd my 5 year old how to play and he got it pretty quick. It;s supposed to be a toy for 14+ year olds!

Yes, we had 2 cheap ones before, like night and day. No comparison.

There is an IR "gun" kit available for micro helis, but you don't need it for fun competitive flying.

I play a game of "tag" with my nephews that we never get tired of. The goal is to knock the other guy's heli out of the air without bumping him.

The trick is to get your heli under the second one to break the airflow. The second heli will drop straight to the floor. (We've never broken a heli in this game.)

How bad is the battery life? Is it 10 minutes flying : 50 minutes charging? Can you get spare batteries and charge them while flying on original batteries?

It charges in about 35 minutes. Flight time of 6-7 minutes, the suggestions I have read say to stick to 5 minutes..don't push the LiPo battery.

Lots of good info here

It's a fun little toy for $22. The cats are completely befuddled by the new giant 'bug' buzzing around...

Just got mine last night. Never having had a helicopter, it was fun! I did pretty well, too, not too many crashes. Interestingly enough, I discovered that if you scrape the ceiling, it will crash.

A fun diversion for $20. I may have to get another one, so that while this one is charging, the other one gets flight time!
