Welp, I just received my green S107G (now verified genuine Syma as far as I can tell) and wow this is a fun little thing, already charged it and flew it twice. It still kind of drifts around slowly where it wants, but I have learned to coax it in directions I like, so I am progressing with it.

 

The markings all seem to be right, but the circuit board is tan and it says "3D Full Function Helicopter" on the sides of the cockpit. Anyone else have one like this that is genuine? It's part of the Metal Series according to the the box.

Welcome to the wonderful world of syma helis!

 

They'll drift a little here or there, depending on how well they're made. (depends on if it was made on the 6 year old line or the 12 year old line) You can probably move around the battery or put some blue tack somewhere to reposition the center of gravity to make it 100% stable, but I wouldn't worry about it, especially since it goes away when flying around. (to me, staying still's just plain old boring)

 

As for it being real/fake, sounds like it flys good, and as long as it has black and white/black and black motors, you're good.  To be honest, the whole thing with people being paranoid over the fakes is kinda over rated. They have one motor blow out, and if it's within the time you can send it back, you do that and get another one, if not, you buy a $3.50-$3.70 part, and have a heli better than the real ones. To me, not a big deal. The real ones are nicer in that they just glide, while the fakes are nicer in that, while they fly crudely, they take an absolute beating like none other! The people making the fakes didn't spend the time on the engineering, so they just used whatever plastics they have commonly avalable for toys, not special lightweight plastic, didn't go through getting things to be lighter here, thicker there, thinner there, they just made it all about the same as the real ones, but a uniform thickness of plastic and called it good. The skids bend and break easy on the fakes, but the rest is better designed to take a whooping.
