Note that this is done with an S105. The S107 canopy is too short, and the battery will have to be mounted in an angle.
Aw man thanks HP, wow this is an awesome mod here...nice and clean...
...also Swanns Helis are not fakes ? There a good heli's to buy?
(not trying to step on anyones toes here, I just dont know).

Swanns are re-badged Symas. They are every bit original. It is a better package than Syma because it comes with accessories and spare parts. The Swann MicroLightning is basically a Syma S105G, which is basically a Syma S107G with a different canopy. I like the S105 even more than the S107. The larger canopy means I could hide a bigger battery inside.

Wannabe, Nice lights! I like it. Does the color change with the speed, or how does it change?

i added a pic at the end of my album, but here is the description i wrote:

i used a RGB LED with anode wired to the + battery terminal, blue cathode wired to one of the - main motor wires through a 10ohm resistor, green cathode wired to the - (i think) tail motor terminal through a 10ohm resistor and red cathode wired to + tail motor terminal through a 22ohm resistor....color intensity changes with stick input

I love what's happening to S107's here!

The Swann Copter is a good buy. I couldn't decide if it was S105 or S107 based, myself.

That Swann looks just like my S105G save for the labeling.
