Hello I bought my husband a s107 last year and I believe it is real, but It doesnt charge very well and doesnt last along time flying.  I was wondering if their was an upgrade or a newer version I could get him for xmas!?!  Please post if you have an ideas on what I can do to make it better for him.  Thanks!

Well first off, if it's flying for about 4 to 6 minutes, that's about all you can expect from each charge unless you upgrade the battery.

 When it comes to the micro- helis such as the Syma S107, well.... The S107 is about the best there is in durability, performance, and battery life. You can look in the "battery mod" post to see if upgrading the battery is something you want to do, otherwise, to get a heli that flies longer on a charge right not of the package you're going to have to get something bigger and quite a bit pricier. The quick fix would basically be to pick up one or two more S107's. That way he would have one charging while using the other, and even have two going at once if he's got a friend over.

Well there's a lot of options.... The mod for this site sells them and the ones he sells are genuine... Gotta promote that...

 

 If you go through amazon.com look for the seller RC Toys Village-- that's where I got mine and it's genuine. Avoid Ebay if you can.

Working on the airport myself, hopefully... seems like I'm going to end up with quite the boneyard as well.
