5.0 out of 5 stars Syma Radio Comtrol Chinook Helicopter (Syma S34)

5.0 out of 5 stars Syma Radio Comtrol Chinook Helicopter (Syma S34), 3 Feb 2013

This review is from: Syma Large Chinook S34 2013 3 Channel RC Radio Remote Control Gyro Helicopter (Toy)
Easy to fly model helicopter featuring 2.4GHz radio control and gyro stabilisation. Everything needed to fly the model is provided except for 4 AA size batteries needed for the transmitter. The helicopter and all accessories are made to a very high standard and should lat a very long time with some care but please remember this is a MODEL and not a TOY,However should someting break or the heli suffers crash damage spare parts are cheap and readily available.

From Amazon this model retails for £59.95 which is super value for money and the cheapest I've found. Buyers beware though! The very same model is advertised on line at other retailers for prices up to £186.95.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Model, 17 Dec 2013

This review is from: Syma Large Chinook S34 2013 3 Channel RC Radio Remote Control Gyro Helicopter (Toy)
Despite being portrayed as a "toy" this is a serious piece of kit. You do need a little experience to fly it as it is quite powerful and could do some damage if you get it wrong! You need quite a large indoor area to fly but it is very stable once you have mastered the controls, it is also very robust and withstands some heavy landings but you can't abuse it. Be careful once you get it moving as it has a lot of inertia and needs to be treated with some respect. It's best enjoyed outside in very calm conditions and fly's beautifully. I have had a number of Syma helicopters and found them all to be excellent value for money. The S34 also looks really great and does convey that scale model appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Syma Chinook, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Syma Large Chinook S34 2013 3 Channel RC Radio Remote Control Gyro Helicopter (Toy)
Flown fixed wing models for years and bought this as a daft laugh. Wow! It's amazing value for money, fun to fly, and having only four square metres to fly in, is surprisingly ding-proof when it bounces off walls/chairs/the odd radiator, even my wife bounced it off the ceiling and shut the power off - none of which are recommended. A few stability issues which disappear once it's a couple of feet off the floor, and an odd habit of taking off sideways now and again, but nothing that detracts from the pure fun, but beware, this thing is quite fast and takes a bit of 'nose up' to stop. If you buy one for the children, you'll need two or you'll end up arguing over who's turn it is. It isn't a scale model by any means, but from six feet away looks realistic - I wonder if it will lift a scale jeep........

1.0 out of 5 stars Problem with flying it, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Syma Large Chinook S34 2013 3 Channel RC Radio Remote Control Gyro Helicopter (Toy)
I have a problem with this item as the forward and backward flight do not respond as they should they are very sluggish making it very difficult to fly. According to the write up it should be able to fly it indoors and Syma state that it is one of the easiest and most stable helicopters in their range but with this one i beg to differ, i have other Syma's and have no problem with them at all.
I have sent two emails about this and have been told it could be something called ground effect because of low level flight if this is so it should effect the up and down and left and right function but both of these respond immediately.I fly it at a higher altitude for five minutes then recharge the battery and try it again and if it is still the same a return can be arranged.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable Helicopter, 17 April 2013

This review is from: Syma Large Chinook S34 2013 3 Channel RC Radio Remote Control Gyro Helicopter (Toy)
Rear brushed motor broke withing 2 weeks which was due to a worn out brush contacts. Replacement for this motor is £7 which is quite expensive. I suggest looking for a helicopter which uses brushless electric motor!

1.0 out of 5 stars Cool but poorly built, 10 April 2013

This review is from: Syma Large Chinook S34 2013 3 Channel RC Radio Remote Control Gyro Helicopter (Toy)
rotors constantly collide with each other, purchase a single rotor stack helicopter and avoid ones like this, replacement blades are also extremely expensive so a total rip off.

This review is from: Syma Large Chinook S34 2013 3 Channel RC Radio Remote Control Gyro Helicopter (Toy)
I like the helicopter Syma S34 flies because well, because your radio is 2.4 Ghz which makes it immune to interference from other, besides being a beautiful model and very robust.
The seller was very quick in his delivery and package arrived well.
Thank you Amazon
