1 out of 5 eggsForever Shipping and a badProduct

This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)

Pros: none

Cons: Late shipping
Faulty product-lasted only a few flights before the battery quit charging.

Other Thoughts: I've bought several of these helicopters of the years and this was the worst experience by far.
Be careful when choosing a distributor.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little helicopter

This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)

Pros: Flies easy very light and quick takeoffs. Tough takes a good amount of abuse. Worth every penny.

Cons: Infrared has limited range tv remotes can interfere. Cant use outside. None of these are really cons as I knew all this buying it.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)

Pros: None.

Cons: DOA. NewEgg gave me the phone number of their supplier and wouldn't help beyond that. Called the number and it just rings.. No answer.. No voicemail box.. Nothing. No other options.

Really disappointed in NewEgg. I'm stuck with a $30 rock.

I'm giving this product a 1 Egg rating only because 0 Egg isn't a menu option.

Don't waste your money.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)

Pros: It flies really good and stable. The battery last about 7-10 mins on a full charge. The controls are good, and really easy to get used to. Also seems to be well built and really crash resistant.

Cons: Takes 50 minutes to charge. The helicopter moves pretty slow when going forward or backwards.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this is really worth it. Had hours of entertainment so far and I feel like it will keep entertaining me for a while.

5 out of 5 eggsReally fun

This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)

Pros: - Really good control
- Fun
- Low price

Cons: - Broke after a few months

Other Thoughts: I'm partially at fault for breaking this, I bumped it into a wall . The annoying thing was that it was just a tiny piece that broke off and it destabilized the whole thing. I wish there was a schematic or something similar so I could have tried to repair it myself.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice toy, good feature set for the price

This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)

Pros: Worked great out of the box. Pretty easy to control, even for young kids. Lots of fun flying it around. Delivery was quick.

Cons: There are many plastic parts that may break. Spares are available, but how they will fit is a "hit or miss".

Other Thoughts: For beginners, flying it around will result in an occasional collision. In our case, some plastic parts in the rotor broke and the spares we got were a poor fit. Could not restore the original level of control. A very fun toy to have; the task of keeping it running can be "an adventure in itself:.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good for the price.

This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)

Pros: Very durable, I've let several people fly it and they all crashed it several times, the propellers fold in to help absorb blows. They work very well and the things has great lift. Not as hard to control as some might make it out to be. The 3.5 channel works great compared to some older 2chs.

It charges via USB which it includes a small cable for, and if any of the parts are somehow damaged, which takes quite a bit of work as I've tested, you can just order them online for relatively cheap. Or you can just buy another one. I paid $10 total after everything.

Cons: 6 AA-batteries for the Controller. The listing says flight time is 7-10 minutes. However I checked other listings and I see the flight times listed at 5-7 minutes. I didn't expect half an hour out of it but sometimes it feels like you're just getting a good hang of it when it starts to die. Maybe buy 6 of them so you can just charge them all over and over?? But seriously for the price these few cons are hardly killers.

Other Thoughts: If you're at all interested in it. You pretty much have nothing to lose. I intend to buy a larger one in the long run but this was just pre-emptive so I could try it out. It was a lot of fun. Worth every dollar. My next investment is the Parrot AR 2.0 Drone. Thanks to trying this out.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price

This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)

Pros: Fun flying this heli in the house when the A/C is off and a nice challenge if A/C is running. Good starter for RC heli's and planes as you get use to the sensitivity of the controls.

Cons: Not really a con. but you should be aware that this heli doesn't respond nor move like a real RC heli. It doesn't have a swashplate thus it won't move sidewards like the real thing.
Can't replace the battery pack so you have to take a roughly 1/2 hour break when recharging on USB.

Other Thoughts: If you wan't to have some fun or getting some experience with RC controlled flying models, this is a good way to get started. This heli takes a lot of beating w/o braking thus giving you plenty of tries to get it just right. But keep in mind that you can't switch the battery pack. Recharging doesn't take toooo long (about 1/2 of an hour on USB?) but you get time out to make you thnk what you've done wrong the last time :)

3 out of 5 eggsok

This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Yellow)

Pros: inexpensive, sturdy-I flew this into a pond and it survived

Cons: remote control has short in it so I have to push really hard on the throttle paddle to the right when raising the throttle up or it goes to full speed

Other Thoughts: shipping makes the decision not to RMA easier
