Hope you get to fly that thing! We've been fairly curious on how the new line of improved outdoor/biggie helis handle and if they're just as reliable or more reliable as they're supposed to be. I'm trying to remember, that's the smallest of the big helis, right? I know there's one that's just one size up from the 107, and it has a few issues from being that size, mainly it's too big for proper indoor flights, but too small for proper outdoor flights in much wind at all.

Hope it works out for ya!

I think this is the biggest one mate the same as the s033 just with a different radio signal

 

i had it out in the garden today but it's a little too big to fly there so just hovered it for a while I am goin to charge it tonight and take it to a field somewhere tomorrow so will let you no what it is like then

Keep us posted, I have never been that impressed with big Syma helis as they really need brushless motors, any way let us know how she flies.

Ah, ok. I don't have any of the big ones, since I don't have the time, room or money to spend on something I'd rarely get to fly. Mostly I spend my time with homework, occasionally a video game, and once in a blue moon popping back in here and flying once or twice.

Well I have been out with the syma s33 and all I can say is what a load of s#*t 
there is hardly any wind trees are not even moving

i drove to a field near mine and set it down I thought it would go well but as soon as it took off it flew off by its self I couldn't even hover it coz it would just fly off to the left it may as we'll be a kite 

anyone looking for a cheap heli for outdoors this is not for you I am pleased it was cheap so I don't feel that robed haha
it may be ok on the 2-3 perfectly still sunny days we have here

just a quick question is there any Helis that can be flown outside with out getting carried away by a slight breeze

Honestly, probably a gas powered one. I have the S32  and just got the S31 for

Ch

ristmas. As far as I can tell so far, it needs to be dead-calm

outside to fly. Good luck,

As I have mentioned on the website review of Syma S032 When the motors get hot, they draw more amps and that's when the board stops working and the radio contact is lost and the heli drops. Do not fly more than 8- 10 minutes even tho can go for 14 mins- Big Syma helis to me are still in door flyers say in a scout hall, any interference out side effects the remote signal, also they just do not have the power to move fast, not brush less motors, on the S301G Supernova did a review here Ratcat did a review on the S033G with some mods here

Hope that helps a bit.I have one big $1,000 dollar TRX heli, it costs me more to keep this fast thing in the air, eventually one gets scared to fly it and the fun goes, they take a lot of learning to control, always consider the costs on bigger helis.

Right I have done some mods and had a lot better flight in the garden today

 

i moved the battery faward removed the fin near the rear rotor and put on a skyking rear rotor 

 

I managed a low hover and a short low flight round the garden ( not much space ) I havnt been to the field yet but when I do I will report back but I am a little bit happier with it now

Hope you can get it going well. Fill us in on all of the mods you do to keep it going and improve it. It's obviously not perfect in any way stock out-of-the-box, but a few simple mods will probably get it working like a clock. If and/or when one or both of the motors blow, I'd look into lower end brushless motors, since they're fairly inexpensive for cheap ones now. Sure, they're probably $16-20 for a set, but that still beats buying a new Double Horse outdoor heli for $50 to have brushed motors and a giant air whale that moves like a turtle stampeding through the La Brea Tar Pits.

I'd also look into what tail rotor mods and maybe main rotor mods you can do. Larger main rotors allow for slower RPM's, but require more torque out of the motors. Personally, I like having the larger ones, since they require the said lower rpm's, but the 33 might need the higher rpms to move air past the motors and keep them cool. (Thinking along those lines, maybe you should try doing something to move air past them to keep them cool--like a couple of card stock ducts or shrouds to move air from just blowing into the top of the heli and instead blow it around the motors. Can't really hurt anything, and it's a really cheap idea, costing one index card and a little tape)

To be honest, I'm not really quite sure what it is about the larger Syma helis that make them so prone to blow around--it might be that in order to accommodate the motors and blades they have, the helis have to be as light as they are, which means they're too light for proper operation, or they might just be shaped in some way that makes them more prone to being blown around. Better motors and blades would mean you could have more weight to it, but that weight causes other problems. So, I say just experiment, and just use it as a platform for mods, until you end up with some custom heli with a 33 shell, board, battery and tx
