New Owner of Syma S107
Helicopter Rapidly Ascends & Descends

I just bought a Syma S107 after doing research on this site and reading the reviews. This is only the second heli that I have owned in the past year or so. My first one was junk. My Syma is far superior in every aspect. I started to fly my Syma and noticed that when I advance forward, the heli tends to ascend rapidly. I have 10 ft ceilings, so it's not like my ceilings are low. I try to descend so that it doesn't bump into the ceiling, but then it ends up with a rapid descent. Is this normal? If so, are there any suggestions on how to counteract this?

drigg 2-  Welcome from another newbee.  I am still in my initial learning curve and there are some really knowledgeable members here that will probably set you straight.  What's your left thumb on the throttle doing while your right thumb is working the rudder control lever?  I was doing that in the beginning.  I have pretty stupid thumbs, it took them awhile to get it straight.  The other possible cause is your furniture (updrafts) in your operational flight area, and/or air turbulence created by your heli.

I have been thinking about this- sometimes these heli's also appear to run a little "hot" right after the charge/rest cycle.  They settle down after a couple of seconds.

"Practice, Master Luke, practice, you must." First of all, a big welcome to both of you to the forum!

Normally one of the moderators sends a welcome message but these guys have been quite busy

I'm shure, as we've added almost 90 members to the forum since Christmas, setting up passwords,

e-mails, etc.

  Drigg, your key-words here are "I just bought......" follow Yoda's advice. IMHO, it seems your

chopper is working fine, just some getting used to. Also, is the left-stick on your remote spring-loaded?

If so, it may need some "break-in" time for a few flights, the newer 107s don't have the spring, therefore,

practice might be the key, since you just got it. Give it power, dial in your trim, then slowly increase your

left throttle until it's airborn, then enjoy!

  Also, what jbrumberg said is VERY true, room conditions can and will affect flights. Remember these little

guys weigh next to nothing so even opening and closing a room door will set you off course.

Just don't get aggrivated and you'll get the hang of it in no time, over 1,000 pilots on this forum did!

Happy flying, and "May the Force be with You!"

Thanks for the welcome JamDJ.  I am currently at 4 birds and 470 minutes flight time without real incident (1 cracked verticle stabilizer,; scotchtape repair) and counting.

Thanks for all of the advice. I will heed Yoda's words and keep practicing. I will also pay attention to the force with my left thumb.
