IMHO, I don't see anything "EXtreme" about this, and yes, it does look like an ordinary S107. It looks like just a fancy packaging job. Kinda like a fancy fishing lure that catches fishermen and not fish. On the box they make you think it's a "gig" by putting the "3.5g", when in fact it's a "3.5C" (channel). And where is the tail rotor

Oh, and it comes with spare "wings" I love that part

Mike.

Interesting find, HIR/Cer. Thanks for sharing. Looks to me a re-badged Syma S107G classic. Like T2 was saying, I wonder if you could verify the claims for charge time and flight time, cause those are bold claims. And Mike, I'm sure that the tail rotor is there, just turned, so that it didn't show up good in the picture. The packaging of the S107 does allow it to be turned that way. Having a couple of spare rotors (blades, or wings, or whatever you call them) is nice.

When you get a chance, please share some naked photos of the HELICOPTER, not the OWNER, . I'd like to see what's under the hood. Curious to see what capacity battery they gave you, what the PCB looks like, etc. And the $1M question is, is it compatible with Syma's Tx? In other words, is it a re-badged, or a fake? And was that sticker price you paid for the bird? Where did you pick that up? I know that some seasonal places are going to start selling these for Christmas.

Also, what kind of charging plug...ALDI is selling fake symas starting on the 7th.

From the picture we have, it seems to have the same squarish plug that Syma uses. Obviously, I couldn't tell the polarity by looking at that picture.

ALDI is back selling fake Symas for Christmas, huh? FWIW, those ALDI versions weren't all bad. Are you gonna more, Jake?

Hi HP,
No nekked pics of the heli and definitely not of the owner! I do not own the S-3.5G and most likely will not for awhile. The pix came from an eBay listing (item no. 130785182768) which was ended early by the seller. Here's another pix from that same listing. Anyone drooling?

I see. I'm kinda glad that you didn't buy it. For one, I think it's over priced, even for a genuine Syma. Not to mention that it hasn't been authenticated as a real one. So, I would stay away from this eBay deal and buy genuine ones cheaper elsewhere.

The local Circle-K choke & pukes have been selling those in this area for the last three or four months.
Yes, they're certainly "real" Syma S107G's. Just boxed differently for Shell Station owners/retailers.


I keep forgetting to drop off my phone number off (for when the warranty work blows up in their faces ).

You guys need to check out the WLtoys V319. It is similar to our S107s (I have 2) but shoots water while flying. I put a video on Youtube today. The grand kids loved it, the dogs, not so much. It did cost about as much as my two S107s combined though.
