Hello, I recently purchased my S107 (yellow if that matters).  This thing is very cool and easy to fly (wife not too thrilled about it in the houseWink).  I do have a question.  Right out of the box the S107 turns very slowly to the right.  It is fast in a left turn, but not so right.  Does anyone have any advice for an adjustment of some sort of fix?  Any help would be great.  Thank you!Cool

@mgguzik just first check screws holding rotors are not loose-also check top balance bar has free movement

To fly it straight do you need to have the trim maxed out in one direction? If so there might be a dodgy motor or something along those lines...

I was gonna mention to check your trim. Helicopters are EXTREMELY sensitive, so the slightest change can be HUGE. Airplanes are the same way with trim too. I don't have a rc plane, but I play flight simulator. I prefer helis over planes. Planes take to long to get up into the air. Cessnas are even worse! Sorry for giving you more info than what you asked for lol. I hope I helped.

@Old-Iron-Spine good point buddy-I am a plane freak as well and have progressed to 3d flying.Having the trim and center of balance correct is crucial-adjust trim when flying is tricky especially with helis- better to hover and see which way the heli likes to go and turn trim button slowly on remote

I mainly like helicopters (mainly military helicopters), tilt wings, and gyro copters. For airplanes I like the learjet, piper cub, C-5, Antonov AN-225. Huge planes. I considered a rc airplane, but I thik it would be hard cause it would be like flying from tower view on flight sim. There is a guy at my church who has a rc glider, I think we'll go out and fly this summer. And I'll probably get me an electric outdoor heli.

Anywho, sorry for going off topic. The point is with any flying object, even a airhog, trim matters. You have to trim it. Something you can try with the trim knob on your remote control is using tape to keep it in place. And another thing you need to keep in mind, and I've told my friend this. If you're not in control of the helicopter, the helicopter is in control of you.

I hope that helped,
