The climate in New Delhi is changing from summer to winter. During this time of the year there is zero or no wind at dusk- The perfect setting to fly your s107g outdoors. In my experience with my s107g, outdoor flight on the s107g is possible and can be good if you follow the following tips-

1. Of course no direct sunlight and zero wind conditions. Best time would be dusk or at night.

2. Keep the infra red remote pointed towards the heli at all times when flying outdoors. This is important. If you  don't, the infra red control will loose signal.

3. Fly the s107g near you. If you take it too far away, your signal will loose contact- even if you keep the remote pointed towards your heli. No high altitude.

4.The moment you feel the heli is drifting away due to a sudden gust of wind-lower or cut the throttle immediately.

5. Don't get frantic with the heli outdoors. It will not give you a wild experience like the v911. Try to keep the outdoor flight simple with simple movements.

 

Happy outdoor flying on the s107g.

Swordfish,

Thank you for the advice.  

Re: your comment on the WL-toys V-911.  "Wild experience" is right!  I bought one of those as a rank beginner, which was a mistake.  I ended up giving it away to a young kid who was able to chase it around.  

If I had not got a 107 I would have totally given up on this hobby.  But the 107's friendly disposition and stable flight characteristics hooked me.  I have since graduated to a Syma x5c which is another very stable quadcopter and a real pleasure to fly.  I highly recommend this bird.  

So, best wishes to you in New Dehli.
