I have been given a used S031, it looks similar to my S031G, assuming the G stands for gyro how can I tell if this used one has a gyro or not? and does anyone know what the long wire dangling from the helicopter is for?

newer ones gave the gyro but my old one is pretty stable anyway. The long wire is the aerial it is best wound around one of the skids.

Is it right to assume that the gyro is in the circuit board and by fitting a gyro circuit board would upgrade it to a 'G', or is life not that simple?

Smallpiece, it goes back to the addage that "If it isn't broken, don't fix it", although we

all like to do mods on here. Honestly, if it flies well and you are happy with it, save your

money towards the purchase of the S31-Eagle, which is the newer version. The ariel

antenna wire is now internal, and the flight range has increased. Great copter overall,

I have a video on Youtube of mine!

  As Syma products has grown, they have dropped the "G" from their model number

as the gyroscope has now become a standard feature. Yours may be a late model

S031 since you state that it flies well. The gyroscope is in-fact on the PCB, not the

pull-string toy tops we played with as kids! (Just kidding, anyone 40 years old or younger,

disreguard the last sentence!)

 I wouldn't bother with refitting it, just enjoy happy and safe flying!

Thanks for the replies guys, you're right it flies ok, especially since I renewed the main shafts. Although I do have a thirst for knowledge, I like to try and understand everything even if I need to or not. I have also noticed on my 031G that there is an electronic thingy fitted to the frame just in front of the left hand canopy stud, there isn't one on my other one.
