Something I just noticed is that the blades in the one photo look like the garbage replacement s107 blades that I got a little while back. I wonder if that's the new pattern to the blades and if they have a new balance bar or something to use with them. Haven't tried those on my s107, but they turned my s102 into a crashmobile.

Interesting CPD,the Syma S800G comes with spare blades that are black-is that the ones you mean?

I bought these s107 replacement blades that have angled edges like the ones you had pictures, and are a little shorter than the old s107 blades, but longer and wider than the millitary series helis. I haven't put them on my s107, but my 102 crashed something like 7 times after having a crashless flight with the old 107 blades on it. I'll try to get pics of them to you to show you what I mean.

 

They must've made new balance bars or something to balance the new blades.

No the balance bar seems the same-will take some photos of all blades supplied and post

Actually, Troop-107 has a nice demo of the new blades with his 107C post! That simplifies it!

My new Syma S800G comes out of the box drifting slightly to the right, otherwise fully functional. How can I calibrate that thing so it will hover on the spot?

Hi, yes. But that doesn't help. The thing is drifting sideways and the trim is only for rotation. Just removed the cockpit and voila - there is a treat in the connector rod from the steering servo to the swash plate. If I unhook that rod and screw it in to shorten it a bit it should work. But for that I have to disassemble the servo, give the rod one turn, assemble it and try - again and again! Anyone knows the engineer of that thing?!? Shoot cotton buds with rubber rings at him 'till he screams for mercy!!!

Save that engineer, problem solved! I disconnected the rod from the swash plate and gave it one full turn. Scary procedure with my clumsy hands because it looks all a bit fragile but it took under 1 minute and now The Thing is hovering on the spot. I'm 40 and if I had a toy like that 25 years ago I do be a pilot today!

I got my Syma S800G 4 ch unboxed and Charging up the battery. So far I am very impressed with it. It looks supper cool. I have to add a little bit right control to stop drifting. Definitely worth the money for this little Heli.

Don’t get me wrong I really like my Syma S800G. The only problem I have is it comes in transmitter Mode 4. I even called the Syma Tech Support… They said they have no intentions of changing to Mode 2. My solution was to buy the F Series F106 4 ch Mode 2. This Micro Heli also comes in a cost under less then $20.  I fly them equally so I can become proficient in both modes.

I think I have to give it to Syma on this one. I’m so used to flying the Syma three channels that the S800G comes across as a much more natural upgrade than the F106. However my Quad is Mode 2 so I still will learn to fly the F106.

The transmitter has too many short coming. i.e. too small, ect…Would be really nice if the transmitter could be switched to either Mode 4 or Mode 2 by flipping a switch. Sadly does not have this option. Since it only has one Mode and that being Mode 4 I don’t fly mine much.

Well, other than the bad remote, my 3ch s800g is by far the best heli yet. Super responsive, very nicely flying. It's like you take a military heli's stability and smooth flight, and put it on a super responsive s107g. The only thing is it sometimes during turns/manouvers it looks like it's a video game lagging during the turn/manouver. That's because of the way the servos are made up, though.

 

I really think the s800g is the best candadate for speedmoding yet---the quick responce time (probably a third the time of the s107g) and 4th channel definatly makes it a lot better for somebody that wants a faster heli. Plus, you can take the whole tail off of it, and probably could do all kinds of other mods. (although I don't think a different frame is really an option with the way the gears are, unless you're able to make a frame that includes the gear guard into it somehow)

Got my S800G today and charged it up and it flew perfectly streight out the box

Very impressed with it and found the weird mode4 controls pretty easy to use, considering I spent years on mode 2 !

I feel this will need a bigger space than the 107G to get the best out of it so I bought a nice white and gold 107 to continue flying in my tiny house Smile
