hi I have bought 3 s 107 g and frist one was great, second two lose power when flying for a split second, sometimes crashing to the floor and sometimes it recovers. This happens many times during a session. Someone said it could be the flouresant lights, but the old one doesn't have this issue. does anyone know.To have two in a row to do this it would seem that this might be a common thing.

The S109G thread exist, but it is rather inactive. What would you like to know or are looking for regarding S109G? I think if you asked you question here, you might just get an answer. There are many of us that are familiar with both the S107 and the S109.

Welcome to RCG. I would like to help you. But after reading your problem description, there was just so little to go on. I couldn't make any suggestions yet. Would you like to get into more detail, give more description, and/or share a video with us to show us what it is doing?

What exactly did you mean by "trying to see how slow it would run"? Were you saying that the rotors won't spin up, but they jerk?

Were you running it with a depleted battery? Did recharging the battery help?

Not exactly sure how your two S107 lost power. It is not a typical thing for an S107 to lose power and drop out of the sky. Tell us more. Any IR controlled helicopter will be affected by fluorescent lamps, big screen TV, or any strong light source, because the IR signal will get drowned out. Were you flying indoor/outdoor? If you were flying indoors, try turning off devices that has strong lights, like TV, lamps, etc. to see if it makes any difference.

Just curious (I'm lazy - I like to start on the outside by checking the easiest things first)...
Did you make absolutely sure there is no hair, carpet-fiber, lint, etc binding the shaft(s) or gear teeth?
No broken or missing gear teeth?
