The PiccoZ tail rotor mod is probably the easiest and cheapest way to increase the performance of the S107 I've sold lots of these to members on the forum, if and when you decide to try them out please let me know and I'll do you a great deal on a set, see here - http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1348291 ...

There is only so much speed you could get for an IR control coaxial that is designed to fly indoors, before you have to put on the brakes. Am I making sense?

If speed is what you want, you ought to eventually look somewhere else where it could fly outdoor for some elbow room and enjoy that speed. IMHO, IR coaxial just doesn't have the main ingredients for that kind of flying. But that's just me. I am here to discuss facts, and not to step on anyone who wants speed.

To me, my S107 gives me the most enjoyable, relax, and precise indoor flying. I'm not afraid to take it to the hospital with me to cheer someone up there. Would I do that with some of my other outdoor flyers? Nooooo. So, I love my S107 for what it is for. So, I don't go crazy in modding it.
Makes since to me...

The blades I ordered from Klippie arrived today. They took like 4 days to get here, im in the California and he's overseas somewhere. Super fast shipping on another note I tried landing my heli on a pad missed the landing it took a nose dive hit the canopy and died. Opened it up the battery wire came off where it got soldered. Time to repair this bad boy lol

Yup. Klippie has been good on that 4-day record. Nose drive after a missed landing? That sounds very familiar, especially when I was working on landing on the top of book cases and on the ceiling fan blades... Those are tough, because they get so close to the ceiling, and helicopter get sucked up like a vacuum!

Yeah I set up a 6 inch round landing pad and the Air conditioner turned on and the vent was with in a few feet. So it pushed me over As I was about to touch down and me being a noob I think I gave it some throttle or what ever it's called on its way down so it caught more speed to crash lol cool thing is I got to see the inside of it, tomorrow I solder it and see how it goes. Not sure if I need the picooz on it now :/ stock is to fast for me lol good times good times

Actually, I love flying through the forced air from the vents. It's like surfing a wave. The 107 handles it really well. My MCX2 doesn't like it at all!

can anyone help me? how would i add LEDs to the bottom of the circuit board?

say i want to run a 3.5Vf, 30mAh LED...

using the equation [(V-Vf)/I=R] gives me [(4.3-3.5)/0.030=26.6]

is this right? i would use a 27 ohm resistor?

i feel like i'm doing something wrong because using this equation, my numbers don't match up with the schematics that michael stoops posted a while ago...why is the value of the resistor for the external LED 180?

carbon fibers107

I have seen the clone s107 CB with 4 LED leeds. 2 on the left and 2 on the right. I have a very custom s107 with a green light in the tail boom and on the right side. On the left side I have a red led. The red LED is on a 5% resister. All the LED will flash after you install a green or the stock LED in the nose. I think I have some extra parts. I will check and if I do I can send you what you will need. You have my number.

what is the ohm rating of the resistor with the red LED?

SYMA S108G Marine Cobra

FYI, I have just posted a review of the S108G in my blog. When compared to the S107G, it is lighter, and has longer flight times. Its remote has 3 selectable channels vs. 2 on the S107G. And it has a surprised undocumented power feature. Since it is off topic, that's all I'll say here. To read its full review with pictures and see how it stacks up against the S107G, see my blog.
