Default RC Helicopter: Syma s107

Here's something a little different. A remote control helicopter, the Syma s107. Now usually I stayed away from RC helis since they were usually fictitious designs (the ones that tries to replicate a real helicopter looks deformed) and they were unstable/expensive. That all changed when I got my hands on a Syma s107

Although the design is fictional, it's such a thrill to fly this little bugger! It's incredibly stable in flight (as you can see in the pictures below, I was controlling the heli with one hand and taking pictures with the other). This little helicopter has been regarded as the best RC helicopter for it's price. The S107 is meant for indoor flight, and it's about 7 inches long. There are other versions that Syma made that are bigger and meant for outdoors. It has a metal skeleton which makes it very durable. You can drop this baby all you want and it still keeps flying. The duel main rotors gives it extra stability. And it only cost $20!!! You can find it on Amazon and ebay for cheaper!

Youtube the Syma s107 and you'll see how incredibly stable and easy it is to fly. I highly recommend it, that's why I got two! a yellow and a red one (also available in blue)

Here's some pictures!

I have one piece. Better saying my kids have one but the problm is the blades. They damaged the blades abd my entire house trying to hit the wall every ten seconds. They are gonna drive my wife crazy with this helicopter. But I agree it is amazing to play with and it flies very well.

Oh Yes!...these are awesome! However two things to note here...the battery mysteriously loses it ability to charge after a month or so....also theres some fakes in the market (lol...just as good) which dont have the Syma logo on the box.
All said....its incredible value for money and great fun...Enjoy !!!

Cheers

The good news here is it is stable and for indoors. I had an RC helicopter a couple of years ago that was not stable and for outdoors. I took it to the park to fly, and on its first flight, it flew straight up. Well, at a certain hight the wind is blowing harder than at ground level. So when the heli hit that wind it blew it about a 1/4 mile into a residential neighborhood, where it crashed into someone's backyard. That was the last I saw of it. Hopefully I did not kill a dog, cat, or kid.

I presume you don't require a pilot's licence or clearance from air traffic control

RC helicopters were featured on a tv program I'd seen. They demonstrated a V-22 which I thought was very cool. It does look like a fun activity to pursue
