    S108G vs. S107G vs. S109, June 1, 2011

    Zealous1 (Fairfax, VA United States) –

    I own four SYMA helos and they all have different characteristics.

    First, I purchased a red S107G for 22$ and was blown away. However, after a multitude of crashes related to hitting the ceiling my first one was beginning to show wear (rotor blades dented/chiped, broken canopy brace, led not centered, vertical stabilizer cracked awaiting it next crash to come off) within one week.

    Second, I purchased a second 107G and it came as yellow. The first thing I noticed was the yellow one, while completely identical other than color, was much more powerful and battery lasted longer. As a result, it was more fun and more difficult to fly than red.

    Third, being that I am former active duty helocopter mechanic (CH-53a,d,e, T64-GE-416) for the Marines, I bought the S108G (Cobra). Folks, the Cobra is a completely different helo all together. The collective (vertical control) is not spring loaded like the S107G. Not only that, the Cobra is much more robust in its response and power and can be difficult to manage. This is troublesome to me as the Cobra’s body and frame appears to be completely plastic (as apposed to the S107 having a metal frame). Also, the Cobra has one solid white light which I prefer to the flashing blue and red o the S107G. Because the collective is not spring loaded you can make it hover and set the controls down on a table it still flies. Sometimes I forget to return the collective to zero when I crash. The Cobra has lost reception several times and when it does it falls from the air and crashes. The Cobra appears to “Pop and Click” like a Marine should–no kidding. It can speed around room much faster than the others and turns much more quickly. In fact, the other seems sluggish in comparison and it is easy to “oversteer.”

    Forth, I also needed to satisfy my curiousity related to S109 (Apache). I have found the S109 is easier than all to fly. It also has two white leds rather than the flashing blue and red of the S107G. The controller is the same as the S107. Overall, I really find it enjoyable to reliably fly around the room with complete and utter control. I think they did this to keep the Army from crashing out of control–just kidding solders!

    Bottom line, I give the S109 top rating over the others. I do find the responsivness and speed of the Cobra stimulating and of interest so I rate it second. If I fly with someone else I will choose the Cobra for its speed and responsivenees. In the end, I don’t think the metal frame of the S107G will add much value as the rest of the helo is plastic and does break. The cost of replacement parts cannot be justified as a new S107G currently goes for 22$.

    Remote Control Helicopter Landing Pad – LED Lights Installed – Suitable for RC Helicopters, Quadcopters, Drones, Syma HelicoptersSyma S108G 3.5 Channel RC Helicopter with Gyro I am a 56 year old grandma and most all of my grandkids have a plethora of helicopters, drones and other RC toys. I got this helicopter to go with the Eagle Pro landing pad, and once I saw the helicopter I just wanted to use it myself. I am not that great at it yet, but I will keep on trying each time I am getting a bit better at it.
    The Amazon listing says the recommended ages for this toy is 14 years an up. In the beginning of the attached video it is being operated by a 10 year old and a 7 year old also flew it very well. I think it has more to do with the child than the age.
    I do not know much about the technical parts of the helicopter so I won’t even try to review it on that level, however as a parent, grandparent and great grandparent I know kids. In this age of video games, kids will like to use a RC toy like this helicopter because it has controls like a video game. They get to test their skills and spark their imagination it is a true WIN WIN situation!
    They can take turns or play alone, think up scenarios which they are responding to and get up and move around. The laughter and fun when the kids are playing with this helicopter is real.
    I will say it seems the fly time is longer than the 6 – 8 minutes listed. All in all I am very happy with this helicopter and my grandkids can’t believe that I am keeping it at my house. :) “This product was provided at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.”
    The attached video shows the Syma S208G RC Helicopter in use with the Landing Pad by Eagle Pro, after the 10 year old landed the helicopter we got some great close up shots of the helicopter as well. “This product was provided at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.”

    I must have about 200 flights under my belt on the Syma s107g and now about 20 or so with my new s108g. You really can’t go wrong with the Syma micro helis. They are easy to fly, durable and at the $20 mark you can’t complain.

    I would say most of the bad reviews on here are from people who have gotten unlucky with their particular unit. All pilots crash but I think some get lucky and avoid damage whilst others get unlucky and do damage to the motors. I’ve been lucky, so I can’t complain and I’ve really nailed my s107 hard into walls, rooves and even the TV, oops.

    This heli gets the thumbs up from me. I also bundled a helipad with the heli which has got LED lights built into it for night time flying. Definitely a cool accessory. You can check it here:

    A couple of things I’ve figured out over the years with the Syma choppers:
    1. Expect to crash if you are near airconditioners or open windows. Any small breeze will get hold of these micro helis.
    2. The remote is infrared, so you can not fly outdoors as the sun will interfere with the connection between remote and helicopter.
    3. The wheel on the remote is a trim wheel, adjust this to stop the heli from spinning in circles.
    4. On some of the remotes you will see a switch for A, B, C. This means the helicopter has 3 bands, so you can potentially fly 3 of the helis in the same space. But if 2 of the helis are on the same band, you will get interference and start flying the other persons heli. This is absolute mayhem when it happens, so try to avoid it.
