Hi , i would like to buy one of these for each of my 2 sons and my self to play with in the house (and likely break stuff), but i see they have 2 channels yet i have seen more then one review saying you can fly up to 3 of them, u may be getting confused between the s110 also but either way i am looking to be able to fly 3 at the same time with in the reasonable budget that they are currently priced at.

Each color, red, blue, and yellow, from my understanding, is a different frequency. So, you could fly three at one time. Whole family affair!

 

(then, you could fly two of each off of the same controller, as long as one doesn't crash...)

 

If anybody could confirm this, though, that'd be nice. I'm just going from what I've found from looking up stuff, not the real world experience you guys have...

Hi seniorslim,

 

It seems to depend on the model.

I myself have a yellow 107g. The remote shows 3 selectable channels but I can only select A or B.

My college owns a 109g, only channels A & B work.

Another college has the 026g (chinooc) but he can select all 3 channels for some reason. They where all bought at the same store which sells syma's by the truck load 🙂

 

On the official Syma website (http://www.symatoys.com) all S1xxg models only mention the A & B channel.

 

We did try to fly with up to 5 at the same time with different brands.

But even though they use different 'frequencies' they still tend to interfere with each other. I guess the receivers get confused by all the infrared blinking all over the place caused by the 5 transmitters 🙂

 

Regards,

Ronald

From what I understand, with the S107G you can only have two of them in the air at the same time. Even though the older TX has A,B and C molded into the plastic – the switch only has two positions. (they've updated the new TX cases to just use a sticker indicating A-B and A-B-C for the different models and frequencies)

My son has the 026G Chinook which has three positions. He also has the 109G Apache and I can bind my S107G controller to his Apache and vice versa. My other son has the 108G Cobra – which doesn't appear to be able to bind to my 107G TX (haven't really tested it).

I'm guessing that Syma is using 2 different protocols/carrier signals in their models. I'm guessing the true 3 channel TX's can bind to any 3 channel model and any 2 channel TX can bind with any 2 channel model.

there is also the fake symas, and if you fix them up to where they fly, (not too hard, just replace a motor or two and possably the battery, and you have a better heli than the real ones) you have a different set of 3 channels.

 

That is a good point, though, that you brought up with the interferance caused by having that much IR in the sky. It's fairly easy to interfere with these things. Christmas lights, flatscreen TV's, lamps, intergalactic automic-fusion spacecraft, solar flares, emp's and many other simple things like that interfere with them a lot, so it's safe to say that the ammount of ir from that many remotes would make things go wonky.

I have a yellow 107g and the remote only shows A and B.

My daughter has an 111g and the remote shows ABC but can only select A or B.

I think it's generic and random. Other brands have the same remote etc...

Does anyone have one that actually allows selecting 3 channels?

I may not have said it clearly but the S026G Chinook has three physical positions as does the S108G Cobra. I'm guessing you could bind their remotes to each other. I should try it out and see.

My S107G  remote has a 3 position switch in it, marked A, B, and C. Laugh
