Why have I named this topic "Stop Thief" Well I have many emails per day and comments on this blog that say people have been ripped off buying a Syma 107.When I say ripped off,they have either bought from their local mall or on line to find they have bought a non genuine Syma S107G. Many posts about picking a fake here.

I stayed away from setting up a page to shame these sellers for legal reasons-However I thought that there really could be no kick back in my face if people posted on this forum the sellers that they have bought from that sold them a dud Syma and the sellers that sold them a genuine heli.

My suggestion would be to post below your experience where you bought from and the sellers name good and bad comments.

We not only need to shame bad sellers but also recommend sellers you have bought from that sold you a great genuine Syma 107. I feel that will help us all. Give me your views if you think this post is relevant and can help newbies buying a Syma heli

So here is your chance to help people buy a genuine Syma 107 from your info below-As said if you feel this topic is not required let me know.

Hope I do not get sued - Lol  Confused

I've bought two S107Gs from Battery Superstore, on Amazon. Both genuine, both NIB and fully functional, both shipped quickly. Add to that the fact that they're pretty consistently close to, if not THE cheapest seller, and that equals a recommendation from me. Wink

I purchased my S107G brand NIB from Superstition Hobbies on Amazon.com. The little red machine shipped and arrived quickly and the seller has a great RC storefront.

Also purchased an S109G Apache for our son from JP Commerce who appears to have become Cart Wheel Deals on Amazon who also sent the product quickly and arrived in perfect NIB condition.

 

Drivin_Dave loves NIBs!

I've purchased all ours from Amazon,

s111g and s107g (white) from Halley R Us (perfect)

s107g (yellow) from A-Hobby (perfect)

Helizone Firebird (1 black and 1 blue) from LA Toys. It looks like LA Toys is no longer there. I don't know why but I was hesitant to buy from them because of low sales and low rating. They shipped quick and fly great though.

Great Idea for a Posting!  Cheer the HEROES and BOOO the Bad-Guys!

 

I got my Genuine S107G - Yellow from Wholesaledvdsforless, through Amazon.

Also received my SYMA S032 from West L.A. Hobby Store (Yantai Tianhu Trading Co.),

again, through Amazon. Genuine in both cases, on time, tracked the shipping straight

The 102g blackhawk? Youll be a happy flyer with that bird!!! Fly that thing as much as you want, it will fly like silk and crash maybe once a flight at most.

 

(Also, noticing the new signature, well, I'm a life-long Neil Young fan,

Well, I don't know why it's not letting me post a reply to anything, but I'll try again...

 

Do you mean the 102g blackhawk? If it's that, you're going to be one happy pilot! That thing glides around, and is just flawless.

 

(As for the new signature, well, I'm a life-long Neil Young fan... --and that's litteral!!! I've been literally listening to Neil Young since I was an infant!--

I recently bought 2x Syma S107 (R5) for spares or repairs from Dealstation on Amazon for only £6.93 a piece.

They arrived within 2 days, and both worked with some very quick fixes (one had glue in the transmitter power switch, and the other had a broken joint on the fly bar.)

No trees were harmed in the sending of this message; however, a significant number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced.

well got my S107G ,and i'm really pleased with it ,a really nice looking machine and looks sooooo easy to fix ,flys great and easy to control! . the blackhawk arrived too another excellent helicopter ,can do a great trick with it ,i can make it fly sideways but not for long have to correct it or it gathers speed and loses control ,but fun none the less . the SIIIG  though is another story ,fitted a new battery but still can't get it to rise more than a few inches,unless i give it a quick flick on the left , it rises up a bit then flits back down to the floor again ,ah well back to the drawing board !!Cool

hey i have something to say!! it's better to burn out than to fade away!!! ( HIGHLANDER )

 G'day Mate,

                  You are spot on about the charlatans selling SYMA when they are not real genuine.

I asked a seller on EBAY a question about an S800G he replied that the item was a 3 rate product

his honest reply I trusted him and paid for it free postage.

I contacted EBAY by phone about forcing the sellers to to put in the BOLD LETTERS genuine Manufacturers Product

if not to describe that it is not.

I will believe it when I see it but they said they will do that. Also said that the return shipping out weighs the cost of the item bought.

Cutting the rigmarole I bought a S800G from Fever on your recommendation postage not bad to WA Aust. Amazon refused to post to Australia but sent a list of those who do.

E&OE VietVet ret'd FLTENG R.A.A.F.Cool

 

By the way thanks for the great webpage the R.S.L will know all about your site.

G'day Again,

                   I had  a reason to buy a new pcb now looking for a real one and going on the advice in the forum that the pcb must be red and not green.

The seller on Ebay categorically stated to me the board I bought from him was a genuine SYMA Product it was neither red nor green but was a brownish colour he said I could ask SYMA to verify this as they had made a batch for the european market and not to waste them they use them here in China.

I have now given a 100% surety that the item is ridgie didge.

Does anyone have any comments on this at all I would love to hear the pros and cons.
