So, I was flying my yellow s107g  this morning, had it at hover 5 ft up and it just falls from the sky.

Straight down and so quick I did not have time to react.  Picked it up and put it on her skids and she flew just fine.

Not sure what happened.  It was over in a heartbeat.  Anyone else ever have this happen?

Outside? Sunlight
Inside? Is there a TV on w/IR remote in the room?

try to re-create the same situation a couple of times, have somebody hit the TV remote, turn on the tv and have it on, if you can, do it at about the same time of day so the sun hits it the same.

 

Otherwise, chalk it up to a fluke, and procede normally until it happens again, then we can find the common link and see if it's something to worry about.

Inside, TV was off, I would consider the light to be moderate.  No bright sunshine.  

I have flown it through sunbeam streaming in the window before and the heli was not

affected.  Mater of face it looks REAL NEAT when the sun hits the spinning blades.

The light up neatly.

 

I am thinking that maybe I just did not have the best line  of sight between the 

heli and the controller.  I find myself sometimes using body english when I am

flying.

Chalk it up to a solar flare or temporary EMP.

 

If it happens again, then worry about it.

Been playing too much mw3...

 

lol.

 

In all seriousness, just chalk it up to some fluke occurance until it happens again. And even then, it might be just annother fluke.

Mine has been fine since the incident that prompted the post.  And it only did it once.

I have two new, one red one yellow. The red one does that. Will work on full throttle though, so when battery is low, it flies ok.
