I got a 107 clone for xmas, and just picked up a real 107g last week, any suggestions as what I should get next? I think i might be getting a 107c for the cam, but i'd also like to get something with better flight time. and I also would like to get something that can fly by radio. any suggestions?

The syma f4 is radio controlled and single rotor it flys just like the 107

Bryan,

Here is a customer review on the F4.  This fellow says it flies too fast for indoors and cannot deal with wind outdoors but is better than the Syma S107.  Talk about contradiction.

I thought you'd find it entertaining.  I did.

Actually the s107g is a co-axial whereas the f3 and f4 are single pitch. Co-axial and fix pitched aircrafts play the game differently. Both s107g and the f3/f4 behave differently in flight for this very reason.

Stick to co-axials if you think single pitch is difficult.

 

Which is the best co-axial to upgrade from the s107g ? Obviously the s032g. A bigger version of the s107g and you can fly it outdoors too as the remote is not infra red. It is the antanne type.

I found the single pitch just as responsive and easy to fly as the 107 hence my remark,

Pilots, 

  Watch your model numbers here.... The S032 is a very old version, as is the

S031 and S033. They are still on the market worldwide for a lot less $$$.

  To clarify, the new models, which were introduced 3 or 4 years ago are:

S31 "Eagle"

S32 "Lightning"

S33 "Thunder"

   They are all the same sizes as their former counterparts, but with a few updates,

worth the price, personally. Also, for some reason, Syma didn't number them in size-order.

The smallest is the S32 and the largest is the S33, same as before.

   "And now for something completely different..."

The newer models don't have a wire antenna wrapped around their landing skids or hanging

off the back. This makes for a nicer appearance and less chance of the antenna getting caught

on a tree branch in case of a "near miss". The antenna, or "receiver chip" is now inside the body

of the heli. 

The Rx has been upgraded from 2.4 gig to same frequency but with additional "spread-spectrum".

Without getting technical, just allows a small increase in distance.

                                                             Happy and safe flying!!!
