Two great things happened today.This mourning I got up hyped up to go to the county fairgrounds and I thought I would make a fool of myself but iam still learning.First great thing happened a neighbor came to me and said I see you in your front yard sometimes tinkering with your drone and he said here you can have this it was a sharper image dx-2.He said he hated it went to Walmart and bought it a week ago crashed it and broke a blade he replaced it and said it just tilted but would not take off. So I told him you probably put the wrong blade on we looked at the manual and he had we replaced it with the right one and bingo it lifted off.So I said come on out to the fair grounds with me and practice he said no its your its a gift.I said thanks and headed out to the fairgrounds.Second great thing I had my 107 the sharper image and my x5c.Ok got out there tried the 107 first not to great acted funny I think because it was real sunny and it interfered with the infared.Next I tried the dx-2 Took off it flew like I couldn't believe I went up high and in circles and a few days ago I was cursing saying iam on a long learning curve and the big test I flew it back to me and got it to hover right in front of me and I said I must still be in bed dreaming.Next what I consider the holy grail of my aircraft right now the x5c I had it hovering spinning and went up high with it.I said finaly iam catching on.Whats even better I only crashed twice today.SF what you said is true that I would start one day and it would be ok.I still can't believe it I was comfortable with my drones and having fun.I know I have many more crashes to come and there will be good/bad and ugly days but now iam realy happy.Sorry I took so long to babble about my day flying but I feel like a kid at Christmas now.    

Well great to get a free drone, something more to practice with. You are really getting switched on now by realizing to put the correct props on, as they are clockwise and anti clockwise, I am impressed! The crashes will get less, outside fly on grass, really hard to do any damage. Most crashes happen inside, having said that i can now fly all around my house and land where i want, just practise, you have now got over the fear factor so your flying will just get better.

The Syma 107 is not for flying outside really only maybe on not a sunny day as the infra red remote hates sun and digital tv set.

You are not babbling, it is great to hear your flying stories, in the end buddy all about having fun and learning to control the birds, I can tell you one thing it will keep away dementia lol, as i am well into my 60's now and learning how to control remote and drone really helps my cognitive skills. Think it is great for older people to fly a drone, you know why, when you can do it ok, it is so rewarding.

Keep flying Justdon laie_43

Nothing wrong getting two X5c quads..you will find flying outside with not a infra red remote very rewarding. Then get a little higher and hit the flip button, you have a lot to learn yet, but take your time.I Did a review here, might help you.

Don't laugh SF but I ordered another one just in case I crash and ruin this one.Iam still trying up and down it drifts off to the left or right and sometimes forward.I have to figure out how to use the trim to stop that.Progress I can get the 107 to hover a little bit now.I just think my learning curve is longer than others.But I can truly say iam not disappointed with either one just a matter of learning how to control them.And when that happens iam going to be in heaven.

Now justdon, you have the perfect flying machine, the Syma X5C. So easy to fly, I have three and lots of charged up batteries.I fly over grass crash often, but no drama, hope you got one with camera as really great.. you are moving on dude, age means nothing, fun is it for a small cost, it is more expensive for me to play a game of golf than buy a Syma X5C praising-the-lord-smiley-emoticon

Finally I have something to be happy about.Iam still stumbling and bumbling with the 107.But my nephew brought me a package this mourning he had checked my mail for me because I had to go out of town yesterday.So he spent the night watching my house and he brought me the x5c that I had ordered.I charged it up put batteries in it and crossed my fingers.To my surprise not bad it seems so easy to handle.This one I will learn fast it seems awesome.I know I sound like a kid but its a world of difference.I will still work with the 107 but iam happy to have something that I can fly a bit. I don't know why the 107 gives me fits but the drone just seems so easy to fly.

Justdon, don't worry to much as that post was 5 years ago when the Syma 107 hit the market and other manufactures tried to copy the design, things have changed a lot and not many fakes out there, clones maybe but they are ok, just sold under different names.

I buy a lot from Amazon and also Gearbest as free shipping to Australia where I live.

Keep us posted when you get the Chinook awesome heli to fly and stable.

I got a little worried when I read your article that you could possibly get a fake or clone because I got mine off of ebay.In the future I will buy off of amazon or a local store.Also before I read the article a bought the chinook off of ebay.I hope I didn't get a fake.

Hi Justdon welcome to the forum crigon_04

The Syma 107 is the best helicopter to learn with, my only tip would be when you crash turn off throttle straight away as most damage gets done with the props still turning and smashing on the floor.

Just start of slowly learning. Try lifting heli into the air then landing again, just to learn the control of the remote. Just keep practicing you will suddenly have a day when it all goes well. Another tip wait for around 10 to 15 mins to let battery on heli to cool down before recharging, if not the lipo battery will not last long.

Above all have fun helico2_gif Regards SF

Iam new to this I waited 2 years to give it a try.I just recently purchased a 107g.Iam retired and its a hobby I wanted to always get into.I think I better buy a few more 107's because I constantly crash.And I don't think this little copter can last long with me.Right now if I can keep it in the air for 5 seconds iam doing great.All the you tube videos make it look like they are easy to fly at the moment not for me.But I guess practice makes perfect.I hope I don't destroy it before I get a grasp of it.So much for about me.Are some helicopters more stable that I should try or is it just me possibly just going through a learning curve.
