Question about SYMA Toys industrial New Syma S107 Mini Indoor Gyro

1 Answer

Just bought an S107G. I have brand new batteries in the controller, and the heli is fully charged. The light on this controller when turned on is solid red at all times (should be green right?) The directions also say to set the band selector on the transmitter and the helicopter to the same frequencey. (there is no selector switch on the heli except for the on/off switch) There is NO power to the heli at all. The rotors haven't even wiggled

Do the lights on the heli come on?

Normal start-up would be:
Turn helicopter on. Flashing light in nose should come on, as well as another blinking light (sometimes towards the rear, sometimes in the "cockpit" area) the helicopter MUST then be placed on a level stable surface until the 'other' light stops blinking, usually a couple/few seconds. This is the gyroscopes synching up and determining the "level" head orientation they will be maintaining. Then power the controller on. Making sure you're not covering the front of the controller with your hands, (the IR signals come out the front like a TV remote) push the throttle control (left joystick) up until the blades move. This what the horribly translated instructions mean by setting the helicopter and controller together.
Don't charge with the controller. It kills your controller's batteries, (which will last nearly forever if you don't use them as your heli's charger) and seems to make the birds act weird. Use the USB charger and a fully powered USB port (back of your desktop, not the front) and go by the light on the charger not an arbitrary time. Plug in charger NOT connected to heli. Look at the light. That is what the light will look like when unit is fully charged. Make sure heli is off. Plug into charger. Charge until light is fully on. If you unplug heli and the light gets brighter, it's not charged fully. A weak USB port (on a laptop or the front side data port on most desktops) may take several hours to achieve full charge. Always cool 10 mins after charging AND 10 mins after flying. Never drain fully, it will kill the Li/Po battery. Land and power off as soon as you can't maintain altitude.
If it is really charged, and you turn it on and nothing happens... no lights nothing. Then it's defective/toast. Return for refund.
These SYMA helis are awesome, and HANDS DOWN the best on the market... but they can be picky/tricky on how they are treated.

Please let me know if this helps.

The helicopter does not fully charge


You mention the controller, new batteries are good for the controller, but you need to have your heli batteries to be charging correctly. If you get new heli batteries, then Check your charger, it is probably not putting out the right voltage.

I bought a cloud force RC helicopter and its battery runs out in 5 minutes, after a full charge. The batteries are brand new. Do you think theres something wrong with it?


The batteries have degraded. Even if you bought the helo brand new, it might have been sitting on the shelf for quite some time since it was manufacturers and Ni-Cad and Li-Po batteries have limited shelf life.

You can always replace the batteries. The stock batteries in the Brookstone Cloud Force uControl RC heli are 3.7V 150mAh, but I I suggest you seach for and buy Syma S107 / S107G Upgrade 3.7V Lithium Polymer 240mAh batteries. I picked one up for my Cloud Force and because it's slightly bigger than stock, you'll need to tape it under the body between the skids, but some people have also managed fit it between the frame where the stock battery rests. Some generic replacement instructions: http://www.micro-helicopters.net/syma-s107-battery-replacement. The 240mAh battery works perfectly and runs the chopper longer than the stock one did brand new. Aside from a year's heavy use reducing this thing's usable run-time to 30 seconds or so, this has been a great micro-heli.
