I need to fit a new motor into my 111, will the spare 107 motor I have work in my 111 ?

Any help gratefully received...

Cheers... 🙂

I'm not sure, because my 102 uses smaller motors, but I would check the size of each against each other. I think the 107 motor might be larger, but it's turning out that there's a lot of differences between 111, 107 and some of the other military helis.

The 111 motor is the same size as the 107 motor but the 107 has a green cap to it. One of the 111 motors has a black cap and the other has a white cap! Don;t know if the cap colour is significant.

I've found some on eBay described as being for the 111, 107, 108, and 109 which makes me think they all use the same motor... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Syma....._691wt_910

 

Might just give it a go and see what happens...

I would replace it, but would not trust it-that's a fake motor. I think the green ones are a little better than the pink ones, but I can't be sure.

 

(if it means anything, the green motor in my hybrid half-real half-fake 107 is, well, I'm not jynxing anything.)

If your 107 has pink and green motor caps, it's probably not a genuine Syma S107. Some people like the clones, from what I've read.

The fakes aren't the clones. The red/green motor true fakes aren't any good, except if you decide to repair them after they break down with real parts. Then, they're great-very durable, and fly well. (but, they have their own sets of problems-not as stable, and slide a lot)

Success!

Changed the motor and replaced it with a 107 motor, works1 a treat and my 111 is now flying good as new 🙂
