I've got a couple of these little lego type people, and I've got my S107G flying them around a bit.  I haven't figured out a real good sitting spot so the one I did chopper around ended up in the tail area just behind the motherboard.  What sorts of things have you done with your Syma?  I've also made a 3 pronged grappling hook out of wine bottle capping wire and floss to try to pick up things, but I find that you really have to be careful or else the floss gets terribly tangled up around the main rotor shaft.  We were using the grappling hook with my Air Hogs heli, but the control was quite difficult with that one.  I might try to make a little ladder out of toothpicks and floss to stage a "James Bond" sort of flight.

It isn't about hauling anything, but I love your creativity!

Good luck and keep us posted! It was the mention of

Lego that got my attention. 3 things I never got rid of

are my Lionel trains, my hot wheels and mmatchbox cars 

and my Legos. I knocked the dust off my Lego blocks llast year 

and built a cool heliport for my 107s! After my wife gets better and

I have some spare time, I'll rebuild it and upload some pics!

Say hello to my little friend....

Okay, so it's no Lego Al Pacino, but it does fly!  It tends to drift to the side though, but I guess that's expected since the extra weight tilts the heli, but it's actually not too bad to control.  You can feel the 107G flight response is a bit more weighted, and the flight time is a little shortened.  It does look quite neat flying around with the little person onboard though.  (That's a sniper rifle BTW)  I've tried two people one on each side, and boy the chopper barely could get about a foot off the ground so it looked more like low level type flying.

Hmmm... small chunk of wire for fake flowers, a little solder, you got yourself that grapling hook for 50 cents. That would be a cool thing to try. Just have to remember the max lifting capacity for a s107. And, as always, the more modded it is and the less weight you have, the more it can lift. Styrene/plastic main frames, remove the metal skids, leaving the plastic that holds them in place, lighten up the canopy, and you've about got a chinook. Heck, just get the chinook that runs bladesets the same size as the s107, and use that! Still wouldn't mind having one of them modded to be as light as possable.
