That is a really cool paint job it does look factory! I broke down and ordered the black series from amazon. I like that it comes with the replacement kit and wall charger. When I get it I will post some pics of it so people can check it out.

HP, thank you for the links. That new black S107 is looking better and better! BTW, the above link for the green S107 is the one to use at this time for the $19.99 price.

Thanks also to nikku2012 for letting us know about the new black S107.

Airgus, a terrific job on your black S107. Looks like you are quite handy with the airbrush!

Well i just received my s107 black series in the mail! I can't believe how fast it came... I ordered it on april 25th later on in the afternoon and it was out for delivery this morning. It came from california and i'm on the east coast so props to "rc toys village" from amazon! A few things about this heli is that it has a flat black canopy with accents of yellow and it has black main blades with metallic silver and yellow on the blade tips. A few things that i noticed is that the main board is like a darker shade of yellow instead or red but it does have S107R5 imprinted on it along with SMLBH right under the S107R5. The motor "A" which had a white top on my first 2012 green syma is not white on this one. It is more of a dull grey maybe tan and it has 2 chinese letters imprinted on the top plastic. The controller seems to be a little different too... my green one i believe had A B C printed on where you can switch your frequency (but it only switched two ways) and this one only has an A and B printed on it. I will post some pictures of this because i don't know if people have seen this color board in the syma's before or not? ...and so everyone can see what i am talking about and also to just check out the heli.

Thanks for the review and pics. Since this is new and I don't have a sample of it, it it very interesting to see/read owners review. Some of my newer S107s have the same A/B only Tx has yours. But the PCB and grey motor cap are news to me. The black color with yellow accent is a very sharp combo. Nice!

One final piece of authentication business, would you please try flying it with your Green (A/B/C) Tx? If it works like so, then we could be sure that there is no compatibility issues with this newer production line and the older. Thanks.

I would be more than happy to do that but unfortunately I don't have the A/B/C Tx anymore. I had to return the heli I had before this one because the rear motor was faulty and would not spin.

The colour of the heli has nothing to do with it.

It sounds like one of your helis may be a clone.

I still use the original Tx I got with my first S107 with the newer models - S111G, S102G and their Tx will operate my older S107 helis.

What colour is the PCG on both helis and what version is written on them?
