Yes, but the S108G is $21 with coupon code MLCK130ZNL1.

Ditto!

I got hooked the little meritline five-dollar 110v AC to 5v DC / 800 mah electromagnetic induction transformers (guess there's a single resistor in there?) several months ago. Saves USB ports, time, and a LOT of AA batteries !

Got any more of those codes

I've been eying the S109G for some time. Today it showed up for $20 on Amazon. My brother-in-law has both the 108 and 109 and the 109 seems far superior IME.

I was wondering. I have been looking at the Syma adapter for iPhones and Android phones. Does anyone know if they are better than the stock radio or just an added expense for show? I have the app downloaded for my Verizon HTC Incredible, but have been wondering if the adapter is worth getting or not.

Wow $20 is a great price. I too would like a military syma. What was better about the S109g compared to the S108g

XDRoX, I think you meant the S109G, but not the iPhone version. I noticed today that Battery Superstore @Amazon has several helicopters on sale. Like you said, the S109G is $20, and the S111G (Coast Guard) is just $18.95! (Cheapest I have seen). All the other sellers are at least $10 more! So, grab them if you like them.

The 109 flew more stable. But this was a few weeks ago on Christmas and I was a Heli virgin. We broke the 108 pretty fast and then he ordered the 109. That thing is still going strong. And my 4yr old nephew wrecks shop on it every cave he gets. All three landing gears are gone but it still flies great.

Hopefully someone else will chime in as well. I'm not completely sold on the 109 yet, but I think it's the better heli right now.

S109G flies super stable. It's probably the most stable helicopter I've ever flown. However, it has a slight difficult going forward. (It flies backwards better.) I would prefer the S108 over the S109 for flying and for potential battery upgrade.

Let's get back to the S107 discussion, shall we?

Yep as usually you're spot on. I don't want the iPhone version I just wanted to post a picture and that was the only one Syma's site hadmthatni could fond.

Do you have an opinion which one is better?
