Hi all,

 

I just got my new s107G through the mail from Amazon. Now I have had a s109g before not from Amazon which I believe was a fake. Anyway Straight a away I noticed the throttle on the new 1 hasn't got a spring in it and I have seen countless videos and forums with people saying they remove the spring to make it better to fly. I'm wondering is mine a possible fake with it not even coming with a spring or is this the new way?

 

Thanks,

Mark

Hi and welcome to the forum, I think some now are sent without the spring, so I would think that is ok.

Yeah, they're sending out almost all of the new ones without return springs. As for the "fake" s109g, I haven't heard of any fakes of those yet, and while it's possable, I doubt it's really a fake. The blades, motors, everything is different between the s107 and military helis, so certain ones may look like fake s107's, but are real. Of course, there is a bad version of the one chinook out there, so it is possable.

Hiya, thanks for the replies. My S107g is flying brilliantly. The reason I wondered if my S109 was a fake is because firstly the build seems far poorer quality, the remote control feels cheaper and the heli won't fly it constantly cuts out.

Thanks though guys,
Mark

My new S111G shipped with the spring. Today I follwed SN's video and removed the spring, and then put it around the throttle lever as he showed. Just did a test flight,and of course it works great. Thanks for the tip SN.
