Still having the twitch issue. I must say I am amazed at the abuse these things are taking. Way more abuse than the S107's that broke from far less. Impressive! Today I smacked a ceiling fan (off) at a good speed, dropped nose first onto the coffee table, the canopy popped off bending the adjustable rod from the swashplate to the servo. Just bent it back. Not many post about this thing out there. I wonder, are people not buying it, are people just not having the usual problems, or both?

I found moving the rod to the second hole was more than the heli could handle, so I put it back in the first hole after turning (tightening) the buckle two turns. I may go back one turn, as it still seems a little more than the heli can handle. Sure wish it could. I wouldn't have to get a blade msr.

The end of the arm with the teeth. After a closer look, I think it may hit right when it is supposed to stop so, no problem. Sorry. What I saw was the inprecise, jumpy, sticky servo action. Something better would be sweet.

Is hitting the canopy hard on the servo motor?

Sorry i'm not quite sure what you are asking.

 

(i need to check, but) The servo looks like it wants to sit with the pivoting point to be towards the front of the helicopter with the arm pointing towards the tail. (reversed compared to steering motor)

As a result of this, it shouldn't catch on the canopy, or any other parts of the helicopter.

More precision would be wonderful.

I don't think filing the canopy is going to be enough. Might have to move it forward and put a screw in it.

Is hitting the canopy hard on the servo motor? Or does it not matter either way because of how it works?

That is right, I am trying replacing the steering engine. After observing it, and its woeful spring centering design, i have been looking at replacing it with a more precise mechanism to strafe the helicopter. (hopefully that's the right term for it)

 

I noticed the same issue with one of the arms hitting the canopy too, its just another reason why I am modding it 😛

The top of the servo arms in the up position hit the canopy.

has anyone had a twitch when turning? Only one of mine does it but it' driving me crazy.

While I had all of the equipment set up, I took this video of the s107 controlling a brushless motor.

Hopefully, if used with a much smaller ESC and motor, could be put in a S031, or any large syma helicopter.

Ive been looking at replacing the stock "servo" on the S800 with a true servo.

The code still has some glitches in it, but they will be ironed out later. So far it is capable of allowing more precise and controlled movement.

That would be slick. The S107C is available with black and I think it looks great.

I like the stealth copter, it looks more realistic fully black.

But I think the reason why they don't make them black is because it may look like plastic.

If they were to make it gloss black, they might as well use plastic for the frames and reduce the weight.

 

However, if they coated them to look like "gun metal" that would look pretty slick.

They really should have released this with black main frames.

Just when I was getting used to Mode 4 I converted to Mode 2. Was getting used to Mode 2 and fried the board messing with a throttle cap mod. Received the other from amazon so I'm back to Mode 4 for now and having to get used to it again. Crashes! These sure can take more abuse than I expected. They really are fun when you get good at it though.

On my second flight, with the one I just received from amazon, the tail fin broke. Strange because I have never broke one since December on 4 S107's. Wonder if they"re using different plastic, or if it's a coincidence, because I painted one from an 800 and it warped at the same place and same angle the other broke at.

CPD, the rotor blades are the cheaper plastic that bang up really fast.

Will do. I also converted it to Mode 2. I was getting good with Mode 4, now I'm all over the place. I have another one on the way from amazon, so I'll give mode 2 a go for a week and see which I like more, since I'll have one of each.

Nice! Should post how you did that in a separate thread so we know how to do it in our bank of standard mods!

S800G remote modImage Enlarger

Made S800G remote bigger using an S107G remote. Yes, that's a rubber band. I could put screws in the back but then I'd have to remove them and this works fine. I really don't need the rubber band, but since it can move a little it's better if it doesn't.

I agree the remote should be mode2. I'll be converting. I have another on the way from amazon. I also don't get much satisfaction from the 107 anymore.
Do you know you can adjust the swash linkage for more throw? Talk about speed and spins!
