Pirre, Could people in Belgium be benefit by shopping from Amazon in the European regions? I have always been impressed by Amazon's packaging and shipping? What is it like with Amazon in your region?

Shipping fees add quite a lot of cost. Cheapest is around $30, and that's a clone like the ones banggood used to sell...

Of course one would expect some bang goods to arrive. Just be thankful it's just the box.
Good thing they didn't go with the name "Destroygood".

CG, this UK seller ships to Europe, and has excellent feedback, stocking the S107. I have just ordered a F28 from him, which is due to be delivered tomorrow by Parcleforce, tracking No. given. So far so good.

I ordered my S107 from here at the same time, due to the spare parts included :

I will let you know what condition they arrive in

22$ free shipping,is this price nice for you?
more colors will be on shelf soon selling at the lowest price.
BTW,are the blue and white color version the genuine or clone?
How soon will the new colors "be on the shelf"? I'm ready to jump on this wagon!
I think the blue, white and green versions with the new graphics are all supposed to be genuine, although there may be other details that determine if it is an actual Syma.

So far I've ordered 6 of the new colors. Two white, two green, and two red. All have been ordered through hobby-estore and all have been genuine. They aren't cheap through that site (just under $30, free shipping, but plus tax if you live in CA).

But I get them in under 48 hours to my house since I live so close to Los Angeles.

I just had to cut a wire to the LED on the nose of a nice blue chopper because the red light would not stop blinking even when the chopper was off. Anybody ever hear of that issue? Bizarre.

By the way, I got a clone from seller Buylaa on ebay recently. Controller was missing a metal contact in the battery compartment and chopper is underpowered and won't fly more than a minute. Seller refunded me, no problem. Still, disappointing. I'm ordering from banggood next time. Hope it's the real deal.

Some times it will even happen less than a meter away. Batteries are fine in the tx
My new blue s107 does this as well. What did you find out is the issue? I'm going to use my yellow s107's controller and see if it makes a difference.

Did this issue get resolved? or was the helicopter returned?

Sure the chopper was off then? AFAIK the led only gets current when the receiver is powered on...

I have one more comment on my "upgrades" for my 107 - As I bought my first 107 I ordered two 240 mAh batteries for a plan to extend the flying time. After about 20 or so initial flights with the original 150 mAh battery I replaced it with one of the 240s. To my BIG disappointment, the 107 would barely climb. I knew the 240 was heavier than the 150, but I was surprised at the weight effect. On most of my initial flights I continued to reduce weight of the original in various suggested ways and had a Great improvement - quicker response, faster forward speed, and a bit longer flight times (5 1/2 min. to 8 1/2 min.). So, my plan now is to continue with the 150 and I have a blue 107 to be delivered Monday. I'll just rotate heli's for more flying time and use the 30-min. wall charger to keep us going. I've been measuring battery and motors temperatures after flights and charging and found no problems with quick continuing (87 degrees max. at any time). Final comment for best performance improvement is to make it weigh less.

Interesting - The spec for the S107 I am expecting to be delivered tomorrow includes a 3.7v 180mah battery.

When turned off, none of the other lights are on, including the blue LED and the lights inside the body. The chopper won't power up, either, using the controller.

Could be 180. Mine says 150 on the battery. It seems that the ads are not always what you get. I got a Syma S033G advertised as LiPo 1100 mAh and got a Li-ion 1500 mAh. Not of any concern, tho.
