Syma S108G Cobra - Great Addition to Your Heli Fleet
on 11 December 2011
***Updated 29 September 2012***
Of all the S100G series helicopters, I had considered the S108G to be my least favourite because of it's unusual (rapid) turn/rudder response. However the price has just dipped, and with this heli having such good detail and scale like appearance, I have ordered a second S108G. The second one behaves slightly differently; the reverse speed is good much like the other Syma micro helis. The parts from two helicopters should ensure I always have one heli serviceable. You really can not beat the Syma S100G series of micro helicopters for stability, ultimate control for indoor flight, low initial cost and low running costs.
Another great heli from Syma:
- It has stability, response and power (climb) comparable to the S107G, but not quite as fast
- It can be operated with finesse at slow forward speed - better than the S107G
- It has a distinctive 'off/on' (all or nothing) rudder response - producing a very rapid on the spot turn
- Has the best scale model real helicopter appearance - very good detail indeed
- Reverse speed is poor.
