My parents got me this for xmas, played with it for a bit, and I let it sit on the shelf until last week.

 

tried again and found my skills flying it were a lot better, I think it was because their house had forced air causing drafts...anyway. I cannot find any info on it, and the closest I can fin is the Syma 107.

 

as you can see, no Syma logo anywhere, blades are printed wrong, extra LEDs. frame looks the same, controller and charge cable also. flies as well as the reviews here say.

website wont let me upload decent sized images, here they are

No it is not a 107 but a fake, the controller is a clone. some clones fly well so don't despair.

not despairing, as it does fly really well, might get a 107 just to compare, I'd like to make sure spares for the 107 fit it though, blades are getting little nicks from flight training

Most blades are interchangeable but change 1 set at a time to get the a and b set in the right places

Actually, I wouldn't use the word "fake". Yes it is a Syma S107G co-branded,

in other words made by Syma for another company, in this case: Phantom.

  There are 2 dead give-aways here: The remote control is definately a Syma

with Phantom stickers on it. If you held a real Syma against yours, there is

no doubt its the same remote. Also, look at the mechanism that holds the blades to the shaft.

In poorer quality knock-offs, there is a definate difference in the mechanism.

Your photographs show that this is true S107, just labelled differently.

If you go further in to this forum, Supernova has pics of what a "copy"

looks like, and yours is not.

  I personally have a ToysRUs and a Hellifire made by Syma but

with unique graphics/paint schemes, and believe it or not, they all

work off the same remote control!

  What you have isn't a fake or clone at all, it's a product made by

Syma for Phantom Industries. Just so happens to be an S107

in different colors for Phantom.

   To protect your blades, try putting a piece of Scotch tape

along the leading edge of all 4 blades. This will help them from

scratching or breaking, and a trick I learned from CPD!

I'm curious, too. My S111 has extra lights but haven't seen

this one. Any chance you could post a photo of yours with the

lights off and a straight-on photo showing the top of the hood-

canopy?

  Having an S107G or whatever co-branded here is actually

pretty cool as it allows all of us to see what Syma is making for

other companies. I haven't seen one with your extra side LEDs yet.

What we have a problem with are people advertising a Syma

product which really is not truly made by them, like fake Rolex

wristwatches for example.

  I haven't tried the battery issue you mentioned in your last post.

Perhaps other members can chime in on this one!

 Good luck and happy and safe flying!
