Most Favorable Review

cool, but fragile

Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Blue)
Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Blue)

Pros: best control-ability I have seen in a heli! it actually flies where you direct it forward and backward. way better than several other similar models I have flown.

Cons: fragile. busted the landing gear arm on one of two within 5 flights. but you have to expect it won't last, they never do. rotors on both also starting to get chipped.

Overall Review: no frequency selection... either get different colors, or you cannot fly them at the same time. adult toy... a kid without patience to learn the throttle response will destroy this within minutes.

Pros: fast, cheap (we will see if that rebate comes or not), quiet and cool running.

Cons: as others have posted, when connected via hdmi port, after awhile.. it starts to send pops and cracks onto the hdmi audio signal (vista hp32, newest nvidia driver). that sucks, big time.

Pros: freakishly cheap cost (free shipping... made my cost less than the shipping on the box it came in), metal case, compact. have another no-name cheapo switch that has the high frequency twitter - this one does not make any sound.

Cons: none yet.

it works

Pros: it works, it didn't cost a lot. not annoyingly loud.

Cons: no blinky lights/leds (wait, thats a good thing).
