I have been giving my wee S107 a good workout today and I just want to say that I can't beleive how the performance of my S107 has improved simply by changing the tail rotor to a picooz tial rotor. You really have to have your wits about you.

ZZZZZZZ marks on the walls, you 'betcha' but its worth it. I ca't believe how these wee birds put up with so much trashing. She loves me!!

I just sand the the leading edge on the blades and away we go again. If one is starting to get a bit board with the s107 then you have to go get a picooz tail rotor. They are easy to exchange for the original rotor and the extra performance is really a whole new league. The hardest part is getting one of these blades.

I have just received my new s107G and it has a few differences to it from my older s107. 

A/ Main blades on s107G are 87 mm ( s107 they are 80 mm ) from hole to blade tip. 

B/ The polarity has been reversed in the tail rotor motor. s107G is anti clockwise and s107 is clock wise for forward motion.

C/ The over all flying is far superior. The s107G has faster forward motion and more mellow turning. Over all an easier bird to fly.

Good-On-Yaw Syma. Still he best wee heli on the market.

The Picooz is incredible! One of the first mods a new 107 owner should make immediately.

Indeed, you can forget your warranty with some mods (battery replacement, etc) but the tail rotor can easily be replaced and rotated back Wink I wouldn't bother returning the heli, as I find piece of mind making repairs myself, and the affordability of replacements.

I'd be really interested in trying one of those. Smile  Do these rotors look the right shape to you guys?  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENU.....20b65861f9

 

I tried the tail rotor from my Blade micro which is a slightly different shape so got my hopes up (since the Blade is more lively but less stable) but if anything it made it slower.  Can't wait to try it out with the Picooz. Cool 

Maybe Syma should sell them with a spare 'performance' rotor for when you are up to the next level!

@ Heliman,

 

I've been using these:

They offer excellent forward velocity but you sacrifice flying backwards. I was wondering if anyone has found a rear rotor replacement with an aggressive blade pitch which allows for good air flow in both directions.
