Take care on spending on parts-reason being I feel you know how to solder and repair-many people do not have your expertise and waste cash on parts-only my view..maybe you can do a video or photos and advice how you repaired your Syma after crashes etc--helps all!!

Today I did some further modifications to the S107g.

1. I installed two brand new 150 mAh h 3.7v batteries in parallel under the canopy. Its a tight fit. I put one in the normal battery cradle, and with a small piece of scotch tape I taped the 2nd battery to the side of the one in the cradle (on the charge port side).

2. I removed the nose weight from the nose cone, and attached it to the rear tail rotor wing.

3. removed the landing gear metal skids. Don't need them anyway. The plastic mounts work fine for landing gear.

4. After a very breif test flight with un-charged batteries, or should I say the charge that the batteries were shipped with, I found the Heli didn't have much reverse power, or stopping power.

5. I attached a second rear rotor blade to the exsisting blade, and positioned it 90Deg from the orginal. Giving the rear rotor the look of a 4 blade proppeller. I thought this might increase the reverse thrust. It did allow the Heli to back up a little better with no ill effects. At least I can use reverse thrust now when I make a wrong turn and get close to a wall. Ha Ha.

 

Things I learned today.  Wait until you have the proper tools to solder on these small wires. I used the only soldering gun I have which happens to be a 75 watt Weller. Yes I know I'm crazy. In using this much heat I managed to un-solder three wires that I didn't mean to on the circuit board. OUCH!  Anyway I got those fixed using that same gun.

I have a 30-40 watt soldering Iron on my wish list now.

 

Here's some stats.

 

First off, with one battery I was getting 7 min of flight time. I usually use all three motors for most of my flights. I don't hover a lot.

Charge time was 47 min.

 

With the new set-up I got 16 min 30 sec flight time, and I had 1 minute of power left that would work all motors at once, but didn't have enough power to lift off.

 

1hr and 47 min to charge from the USB port off my lap-top.Surprised

 

Conclusion: The 16+ min of flight time is nice, but the charge time is not. I think I will leave the next Heli stock.

Sorry to hear you are in a cast for awhile..been there done it with motor bike accidents years ago..at leasts gives you time to practice--the 111g is cool check our Supernova's review here 

Watch what you spend on parts..reason say that is I have many crashed helis and use them for parts as some times cheaper to buy a new one than order parts as I know you will buy more of these helis as one gets addicted to them,only my advice Smile
