@Robert209 : (and well, to everyone else in this thread) I apologize for propagating the idea that "genuine" symas are the only good ones. I stand by my statement that if it flies well and is can be maintained easily then that's all that matters. It seems that even among the "genuine" symas, there are variations in color design that seem to be "value added"(???) features, like these new symas on Amazon. These don't show up (AFAIK) on the official syma web sites, so I'm curious as to where they come from. However, I figure that as long as the PCB is S107R5 you're guaranteed functionality. Attractive canopies and blade colors are just a bonus.
