The company says that the s107g is an indoor heli. But nevertheless some folks say that they have tried flying it outdoors. Have you done that?  How was it?

Swordfish, Another welcome to the forum!

We hope you have a great time here and please post often.

SF beat me to the punch here by about an hour and it seems we 

both agree: keep them indoors! I tried flying mine at dusk

and the results weren't pleasant. Like SF said, I could lift

off, but then went haywire.

   As you are new to this, just a quick explanation, the remote

that contols the 107 is UV and ambient lighting affects the signal

transfer. Therefore if your heli goes crazy near mirrors, windows,

and in some cases on here, Christmas lights or flat-screen TVs,

thats to be expected so please don't fly yours near a big-screen TV.

  Once you get further into the hobby.....and you will....guaranteed,

the helis designed for outdoors use an RF remote, radio frequency,

longer range, multiple users, and not affected by light.s

  Meanwhile start with the 107 to get a better feel of the 3-channel models.

You will soon find yourelf collecting and flying the different colors

Syma has available.

  Also, please read up on the 15 minute rule as discussed on here

in order to keep your new battery functional. Any questions, let us know.

  Good luck, and happy flying!

I have flown mine in the garden at night but any breeze hits it hard. I also flew in a tent in daylight, it flew well until the sun came out from behind a cloud.
