I bought a syma107G 2days back....it flies properly with a flight time of 5-6minutes...the only problem Iv faced -"CHARGING TAKES 1HOUR AND 30MINUTES using USB as well as my controller! Its a 3day replacement guarantee so if there's anything wrong with my heli..please tell me! I'll return it! I really liked it and I want a proper model for total utility and complete satisfaction !! :D

USB plugged into what? As well as your controller? Are you plugging in your heli into the remote

control to charge it? If so, then your charging time is correct, dont worry! Just get lots of batteries for 

your remote as charging from the remote will zap your battery power pretty quickly. This works fine

and will not damage yoyur heli.

It would be best to charge your 107 from a USB port not connected directly to your wall outlet unless using the Syma-

approved wall charger. Lots of pilots on here charge theirs from their computer USB port however, I charge mine

from my cable -TV box or my Wii (or whatever gaming system you have, if any) or satillite reciever box if it has 

a USB port.

  Word of caution....I fried a battery in one of mine trying to charge it from a USB to cell-phone adapter

so be careful.....Otherwise, good luck and happy flying!

  I would not send it back, sounds like a lesrning-curve here!

I connect it to a phone charger (USB socket)and it takes 1hour 30minutes. I get a flight time of 6minutes as mentioned on the box ! I

read online that if charging takes more than 1hour , the battery's messed up...is it true? Is my heli damaged? :(

There might be a problem with the usb cable, have you tried putting the cable into your computer direct? Have you tried charging direct from remote?

If you're still getting 6 minutes of flight, then neither the battery nor the heli are damaged...good news...

Now, like SF asked in a nutshell, where are you plugging it in? There is a possibility that you got a bad

USB cord, is the light flickering on the terminal of the cord to show a full charge?

  Try several different sources of plugging in your charger, wheather it be from a gaming system,

TV cable or satillite box, 'puter or laptop, just DON'T USE your cell-phone charger until we get this fixed.

I fried the battery in my fav 107 using mine. Be advised and otherwise........

                                                                           Happy and Safe Flying,
