4: How much flying time does the battery give you and how long to charge up again.

You get around 8minutes flying time after fully charged: MY TIP: Do not fly the Syma S107 until she falls to the floor with battery drained, best to have 4-5 minute flight, let the bird cool for 15 minutes then recharge- wait for another 5-10 mins then fly again. These tips will keep your battery going for many hours (I have one that is up to 97 hours flying on same battery) Hence I have many Syma S107 so always one ready to fly.Generally takes 20 - 30 minutes using the usb cable supplied on computer to charge your Syma S107 -and a little longer charging from the remote.

It has an alloy frame which is light and durable- the blades are flexible plastic and take a lot of bashing,the tail rotor blade can break in a serious crash(comes with spare) The Syma S107 is not a toy and is built to withstand a lot of punishment and because not a plastic toy can be repaired if required very easily- spares are very available as mentioned earlier.
