Just bought a Syma S107G, and learning to fly it.  I think it's a little tricky and crash it at least once every charge.  It's fun though.  I bought one for myself and one for my son-in-law for his upcoming birthday.  I'm in the Rockford, IL area.

Kmohr, Another welcome to the forum! We are glad you are here and hope you aren't

iced or snowed in! It's just been windy and wet here in southern Pa, but above us are

getting the snow.

   As Redfive said, practice, and don't be too upset if crashing. "Practice, you must, young Luke"

They aren't easy to get the hang of right out of the box, but several flying sessions should get

you comfortable. In case anything breaks, Syma is one of the best to get parts for.

  Also watch out for mirrors, windows, flat-screen TVs, Christmas and LED lights. Reflective

lights and flat-screens are addicting to these little guys. Be careful but most important, have fun!

  As was previously mentioned, PLEASE follow the 15 minute rule !!! You will be thanking

yourself and asking the question: "What color should I get next?" Good luck and have fun!

Hello, Kmohr!

You made the best possible choice for your first drone.  The S-107 happens to be an exceptionally good little machine in every way.  It was my first, also, and I had a lot of fun learning to fly it.  

As others have already told you, don't worry about crashing now and then.  Unless you have a really gruesome wreck you'll find the 107 to be amazingly sturdy.  Just be sure to wait fifteen minutes after running the battery out before re-charging it.  And giving the copter that much time between flights will prolong the life of the motors -- which can be weakened by over-heating.
