Santa brought me and S107G, which I've duly charged, and just tried to fly. Sadly nothing is happening! I turn the remote on, get a green (solid) power LED. I turn the heli on and get nothing - the LED at the front of the heli does not illuminate at all. Is it DOA or is there something I'm missing?
not saying this is the problem but some usb leads have been faulty-have you tried charging by remote?
There is always a danger of breaking things, by all means buy what ever you like but the main thing is, start off slowly with the flying learning curve.
Just had a look at it on youtube and seems like the motors give a lot of power so be careful with the throttle and, --- take off slowly.
It says, say something here --- so I have
Would you guys accept an F103 Fire Wolf as a replacement for an S107G? They cost more, but are they really better? Looks slightly more complicated/sophisticated, more moving parts. I'll be learning, so bound to crash plenty - does that just equal more broken stuff and time waiting for parts?
The Firewolf is meant to be a 4 channel heli, but really just drifts,if you want to up your flying to a proper 4 channel go with Nine Eagle helis all 4 channel helis are much harder to fly,so be prepared for crashes and repairs,however that is the next move up in this hobby
The other thing with more moving parts is that they equal more things to break.
The S107g and its counterparts are very elegantly designed to have the fewest moving parts practical. Heck, fewest major components to make it fly possable! You can fly these things with real bullet holes in them! (well, if it's the right bullet in the exact right spot... the plastic nose, but anywhere other than the battery, and back of the metal frame part, with a .22 of course...)
The only things that affect the ability of these to fly are the motors, (2) tail motor, (1) gear sets, (4) main shafts, (2) blades, (5) motherboard, (1) battery, (1) and wires. So, excluding wires, you have 16 parts to be concerned about for flight, and 4 of them are the equivalent to changing the oil in your car, and 1 like the antifreeze. So, effectively 11 parts to be concerned about. Compair that to a 4 ch that probably has an additional, oh lets be kind, and call it 5. So, probably about 16 major parts on the 4ch.
The number of parts also is exponentialy growing with the number of channels- 2ch ones would have 9, then 11 on 3, then realistically 14 on a 4ch, then there's 6ch, so about 23, then 36 for an 8, and then you hit 12 with probably 74, going by the forumula.
And, does anybody know exactly how close my sipherin' is?
could be a logrithmic increase... that'd be insane!
I was only rough guestimating, but if it takes the number of connectors, gears, extra motors, and servos that you'd think it would to get these things to have absolute full function, it would leave a large number of parts.
Whether true exponential growth, or figurative isn't really exact...
heck, it could be 2-9, 3-11, 4-14, 6-18, 8-24, 12-32.
