I just got a green s107 and have a whole one flight in 🙂
My question is when I try to hover it wants to drift backwards. Is the fix for this just adding weight to the front? Also I can't really maintain an altitude I keep having to change the throttle and moving up and down. Is that normal or just my lack of skill?
So far this thing is pretty impressive especially considering it was under 30 bucks. It feels really solid. The battery charge time sucks I am thinking about trying the mod so I can swap batteries I saw on here.
What you are experiencing is ground effects, ground effects is simply the air that the helicopter causes it's self, and it makes the helicopter drift in one way or another. In your case it's backwards, this is normal, real helicopters experience ground effects, that's why whenever you see one land, it moves all over the place 🙂
And as far as having to move the throttle up and down is completely normal. You should be fine if you go half, it should stay around eye level at half throttle. And again, even real helicopters do this. If you have ever seen a CH-46 chinook hovering cause it's getting a load attached to it, it goes up and down. This is simply because a helicopter can never come to a stand stil, the helicopter either has little less power than what is needed, or it has a little bit to much power than what is needed. Don't worry, you're doing good if you haven't crashed yet. Syma helicopters are great to fly though, they are completely durable.
As you turn heli left or right,you create air turbulence,so you get a wobble to explain it simply-move ,stay with hover will correct its self-as one progress you can then know if going say left and stopping heli by remote control will wobble to that way-nothing in air can stop still after a movement,it is reaction by the flyer with remote to correct it,even tho they are gyro helis one should always consider the air you have left or changed-I also fly 3d planes-if you try to hover in a really small room eventually the turbulence creates a wind within the small room,like a whirlpool-sorry not good at explaining things-just remember any movement in flight causes a return factor-that is the learning curve of flying helis or planes
