I have a Syma S107 but my nephew broke its front part and now the battery is missing as some of the cables were ripped off. I got another one from the store that they said did not function to fix the old one, and noticed it looks better than the old one so it would be nice to better fix this one. The helicopter functions fine. it flied normal and I even thought it was good. But when the battery worn out and I plugged it to the controller, the controller bulb won't change to red and it does not charge as it should. After some time connected it does not have the strength to pick up altitude and after 30 seconds it dies. Is this problem the battery or any of you think of something else?

If you can charge it from the usb charger, do that. It's out of charge, which is the source of the problem. Also, it takes about an hour or so to charge if you weren't waiting that long, it could be part of the problem.

 

It could also be a fake, where the led is normally red on the remote, but green when it charges. (opposit of the real ones where it's green and red to green when charging)

I don't have the usb cable but was planning to buy it from ebay. Also, By knowing the store sold it to me saying it did not work, I don't think it should be the time I'm leaving it charging. I also thought of buying a battery from ebay to see if that's the problem but wanted to see if someone thought of something else. Thanks a lot for you reply.

Why would you buy a Syma that doesnt work?

Anyway,.....First make sure its a real Syma, because some of the fake ones are reversed-polarity on the charger, and if you buy a Syma plug and put it on a fake Syma, you may blow the board or even your PC.

 

When youve determined the Syma is real (if so), then install a new battery in it ( 3.7v, 150ma, lipo), and charge it.

Takes about an hour or so to charge. First charge may not be optimum, so fly it and when it dies, charge again.

 

If the wires were ripped out, youll also have to use your newer Helicopter as a map to trace where to replace the broken wires.

 

 

     Good Luck.
