Hi there.

 

I am new to the world of RC helicopters, just picking up two for a good price.

 

I unboxed one, read the manual, charged it and have had heaps of fun so far. 

 

These are not a syma as such (I think a clone), but were distributed by Swann. Very good quality and fly as they should.

 

After spending some time looking over this forum and learning a hell of a lot (about batteries especially), I decided to pull of the hood of my heli to see what the power rating of the battery was, and found it to be 3.7V/150Ma. It was also confirmed that the circuit board was marked Syma S-36-R.

 

So,,, does this qualify the heli as being a Syma clone????

 

Thanks and looking forward to spend some time here learning more about my new micro hobby.

Cheers and thanks for the reply.

 

I have nearly 200 minutes up on the first unboxed heli and she is still going strong.

 

I love these small entainment items to death

Greetings Shayne, and welcome to our forum from the western side of the world!

Glad you joined us and please post and check back often!

   Per your query on "genuine" 107s , like SF said, if you are having

fun with it, don't worry! The main concern here is if someone buys a product

labeled as a genuine Syma and the box reveals a counterfeit, then please

report it to your seller, and also SF, CPD, or Supernova, and also post to

Stop Thief page on our General S107 Info section here on the forum.

Syma builds copters under several different brands, therefore the word

"knock-off" is used heavily here but is accepted. For example, I have a red

Helizone  Firebird which is obviously a 107 with glorified paint pattern,

made by Syma for Helizone. It is not marketed as a Syma product,

even though we here know where it came from! Again, the real issue

Is counterfeit product, clones are probably real Symas rebranded!

Bottom line is have fun and again, welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the welcome.

 

Well, as I said, I bought two that came as a pair but in seperat boxes.

 

The red one (as I will call it) has been used continuously, and I have recorded flight times. So far it has 200 minutes of flight time and is still going strong, or so I thought.

 

Today, I unboxed the blue one, charged it and sat it beside the red one which also had a full charge. For a test, I wanted to see if they would both fly commanded by one remote only, and they did.

On vertical lift off, the fresh blue model took the lead with much more thrust. They were both bought back to the ground where I switched off the red one.

I then gave the blue one a run (which lasted 7 minutes) and was very surprised at the difference between new from the box and old.

I will continue to record the flight times on the original red one and will be interested how long it gives me before I need to change batteries.

 

Oh, as far as counterfeits are concerned, I just purchased a Syma S111 off ebay coming from Hong Kong. He also sells the 107's. If it turns out to be the real deal, I will get me a 107 as well.

Interesting and thanks for the pics!!!! Keep us posted!

My first Syma was the 111and that was what got me here.

I still think it flies slightly smoother but not quite as fast as the

107 but the light show makes up the difference, enjoy!
