Superb easy to fly helicopter
on 13 January 2014
Having been given a couple of small r/c helicopters in the past which were incredibly difficult to fly, I was quite sceptical about whether such an inexpensive model could live up to the hype.
All doubts quickly vanished after its 45 minute charge and initial flight which, unlike previous helicopters, was very easy to undertake thanks to the S107G's seemingly inherent stability.
No assembly required and the supplied USB charging cable can work off a PC or any source. We have happily used an Apple iPhone wall charger. The model can also be charged from the r/c handset.
The helicopter has a prominent nose mounted red/blue flashing led light and seems fairly durable as it has withstood a number of crashes due to pilot's over exuberance. Spare parts packs are however also available from Amazon.
One note of caution is that it is however susceptible to draughts and is best kept indoors.
Flying time varies according to your use of the throttle but we seem to get a good minimum 10 minutes worth.
This was such a hit that we bought another one, this time in yellow. My ten year old daughter quickly mastered how to fly it and, thanks to the built in ability to operate on either of two available channels, we happily fly both helicopters at the same time.
Fantastic fun and excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
