Hovering with S107G

I was wondering when just hovering with a S107G is it normal for the helicopter to drift around a little bit or should the gyro keep the thing perfectly still?

Perfectly normal.  

I have an S-107 and an x56, which is a quad-copter, larger and heavier than the S-107, but still subject to drift.  My understanding is eliminating drift requires a larger, heavier bird with GPS (satellite) control, which presently will cost upwards from $1,000.

Drafts cause movement as do thermal currents from heaters, holding the 107 steady needs practise.

Even the SlLGHTEST difference in air-pressure will cause drift, like Redfive said.

An opened and closed door, heat coming on, etc. Remeber the 107 is extremely

lightweight and honestly, that's 1/2 the fun of flying them!

Again, good luck, happy and safe flying, and welcome to the forum!
