I am having an issue with my S107G it is a couple of years old, but was only flown a few times, but the last time I tried to fly it the propellers would spin, but the helicopter would not take off and then randomly the green LED on the helicopter would start flashing and the propellers would stop. At this time the helicopter would not respond to any of the controls I tried unless I shut off both the controller and the helicopter.
I have tried a few things to attempt to fix the problem, but they haven't really worked. The first thing I tried to do was correct the slippage on the top rotor since this was suggested as being a known issue. In regard to the loss of signal between the controller and helicopter, I tried to replace the batteries in the controller and charge the helicopter, but the same thing happened.
Does anyone know what the issue is and how I can fix it?
Micah, first of all, welcome to the forum! Please post and check back often!
I'm going to reinforce what Redfive replied. I agree that the problem is in your
S107s battery. You stated that yours is a couple of years old and only flown a few times.
They do need to be charged and discharged regulary, once the initial charge is
applied. Otherwise, the battery will go dormant, as we say "crystalised" and won't
hold a full charge. Therefore, it will hold enough power to spin the blades but not enough
for lift-off. Also, the heli won't receive the signal correctly from your remote, thus the flashing
green LED you stated.
Best bet would be to buy another battery for the heli, they are a dime-a-dozen on Amazon,
or like Bryan said, just get a new one and keep your current one for parts. The new S107s
have cooler-looking paint schemes, and disreguard the "G" not being at the end of the model
number. "G" stands for "gyroscope" and is now a standard feature, therefore, Syma doesn't
use that nomenclature anymore!
Again, welcome to our forum and please check back and post often!
