I am a newbie who is hooked on these little machines.  I now have four, including a UDI-13A, a WL-V911, (most recently) an S26 Chinook, and (my favorite) S-107g. 

The UDI-13A (with camera) is a nice chopper, but it's a bit too big and a bit too erratic for indoor use.  The WL-V911 is 4-channel and much too frisky for introductory practice indoors.  I just got the S26 Chinook and am still in the familiarization stage, but it definitely is indoor-friendly.  My very favorite is the 107, which, based on all I've read, heard, and experienced, is an exceptional little bird. 

I recently learned about the introduction of the Syma S-36, which some have referred to as the S-107's replacement.  I'd like to know if any of you fellows have personal experience with this S-36 and, if so, does it compare with the 107 in terms of performance.  Because if the 107 is being replaced by the S-36 I will order another 107 -- unless the S-36 is just as good as the 107. 

Any advice will be most appreciated.

I have not got the S-36 as yet.To me the differences are :The S36 is 3 channel helicopter. This means that it can fly in 6 directions. It will maneuver Up/Down, Forward/Backward, and rotate clockwise and counterclockwise. The size of this chopper is suitable for indoor flight in smaller or confined spaces. Its coaxial rotor design is naturally stable in flight.The radio system  uses 2.4ghz frequency, spread spectrum technology, the control distance  is more improved. Not like infrared system, you can fly this chopper without having to worry about digital interference like a TV,  or sunlight interfering with the signal. This  frequency also allows more helicopters to be flown at the same time. A high and low speed selection on the transmitter allows the pilot to control the throttle rate of the chopper for greater or less sensitivity. A 3.7v 150mah Lithium Polymer battery provides good power and about 6-8 minutes of flight time.I see they are already on Amazon. I will get one next week and do a review, thank you for the post
