Battery question for S111G

New to this forum and this hobby.  Is the battery for the S111G the same as the 107?  Mine seems unable to hold a charge for any length of time (though it used to fly for 7 minutes or so).  It lifts off fine, and then starts to lose all altitude after 10-15 seconds, coming gently down to a landing.  Should I just replace the battery, and if so, are there instructions anywhere for this?

CCBNY,

  Thanks for your post and joining our forum! We appreciate your being here.

Hopefully you will find the info here useful and please don't hesitate to post

any inquires you may have!

   As far as the S111 goes.....there is good news and bad news.....

GOOD NEWS, yes, it's the same battery as the S107. I love mine and find it

so much smoother to fly than the 107 and the lights are cool. My first Syma

was the 111 and thats what got me started on here. Don't despair, the 107

is excellant and has become the industry standard, but I can't fly my 111 enough.

   BAD NEWS, they are the most difficult heli to work on 🙁

Either have a good memory or a notebook handy.....there are over 10 itty, bitty screws that

hold the body of the 111 together, keep in mind EXACTLY where each one came from once you get the

new battery installed. They are not plug-and-play, they must be soldiered in.

  Unfortunately, there are no clear directions from Syma on this. Just use seat-of-yor-pants intuition

and honestly, that's what makes this hobby fun!

   Good luck, and please post your results!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

              JamDJ
