I like the look of this little heli, the paint is cool, the tall skids are kinda neat looking, and the remote is definately quite different!  I'm NOT looking at it for the camera option persay, but just thought the overall 'futuristic' stealthy video game look was nice.

But, all that means nothing if it flies like a cheap Syma fake!!!  Maybe Syma guts could be installed but that's a high price once shipping is figured in to Canada for a heli that will need a rebuild!

So, anyone have experience or recognise the slightly different engineering (tail boom mont mount for instance) and have had good luck with this, or it's Syma-clone camera less counterpart if one exists?

looks cool. You could paint an s107 and make it look cool like that, although allways cooler to actally have something that looks like that.

 

Now, that said, the camera looks like the s107c camera, the body looks like one of the silverlite clone helis, and the tail rotor is DEFINATLY the fake tail rotor. I can't say for certain, but it looks like a clone of the s107c, but I can't say what the thing flies like.

 

If you're interested more in the look of the heli, I'd just get annother s107, some flat bacl spray paint, some gloss spray paint, and maybe look up online how to do a carbon fibre paint scheme or something. I remember there being some site online with a bunch of really cool paint schemes somebody did, like an army s107, a night ops/stealth ops s107, and a lot of others.

The thing I liked the most was the slightly different look to the canopy. the 'cheeks' with the led's in them, and the tip of the nose is 'pointier' viewed from the side, and has a slightly squared off profile from the top  Perfect for what I had in mind for a custom  futuristic military heli for my 15 year old.  I've got an interesting little idea rattling around in my head to get him into flying a heli...and a bit less stick time on the x-box, but I hafta appeal to his interests! :-)

I can use a stock 107, as was my original plan for the project, but after seeing this one... I like that nose!

An interesting idea, not sure if it'll work, but that frame looks to be a s107 clone frame, and that would mean that the canopy would fit on a regular s107g. If you can find a replacement canopy for it, then use the good ol' $1 Flat Black spray paint on the frame and decoration, and you have yourself a cheap version that looks practically the same.

 

As for the 360, well, I know after I get the WiiU for christmas, I'll definatly be putting in a lot more time on there than flying!!! Lol.

Update:

 

I ordered the canopy and tail feathers from HobbyKing to see what it was like.  $10 or so...  Canopy is wider than the 107 but mounts can easily be made to fit.

what i did find just before leaving for the UK was a little heli in 'The Source' in Canada.  It is made by LiteHawk and I grabbed a 'special Edition 6996' as it has a black anodized metal frame i liked.  It's still in the box... picked it up the day I left... but it might be wider, so the new canopy might fit this one.  We'll see in a month!

Lets express my opinion for this copter.First of all all products have in my hands Fro WL Toys company are copies of well known firms but WL Toys always develop new ideas differentiate the copy product and become better than the originals .All helis having in my hands from this company are much better than the originals .So what about the 977 it's flights better than the originals and the camera it's more reliable than the originals makers if anyone has different opinion he can buy one and have he's own comparison with the others originals lets say creators .Im facing every product as it is never mint a penny who is the producer.

I actually found it in Halfords in Cambuslang today.. (just outside Glasgow)  it was £39  Looked good, but as i said, i was looking for the canopy for a 'project' and have ordered and recieved one already.  Good info to know about WL toys though for future reference.  Thank you!

My opinion on purchasing products from Hobbyking has over the last two years been brilliant,I can not say the same for Banggood,again only my view,maybe cause am in Aussie..Hobbyking arrives fast and cheap,Banggood over a month and fake--please bear in mind this is just my experience and I am here only to guide on buying advice--your canopy should fit ok..just takes a little linear thinking--SF
