SYMA S032 Review

Not the best copter you can buy in this class, by a long shot.

I was less than impressed with my two, which died like everybody else's.

Nice review, Kill. I only ever needed to know 2 things; is it ENGINEERED as well as a S107 and does it FLY like a S107? Obviously a resounding 'YES'.

It's about time manufacturers started delivering products that do what they say on the box!

Great review and photos! I now have more confidence to purchase a S032. Given the similarities to the S107, I should have known it would be great!

Quick question: What does the S032 weigh? I plan to see how light I can make one of these and curious what it is stock. Currently doing the same with my S107 (38 grams new and currently down to svelte 33.5 grams and counting).

Do you need to recharge the battery via the heli or you can plug in the battery directly on the wall charger?

I am going to buy one, most likely in the blue/silver color scheme.

Very clean - and simple - construction. Those motor wires look very substantial too, can't see them coming off in a hurry.

As you say, much better to pay a little extra and get them from a reputable - and fairly local - dealer. Nothing would be as tragic as having one of these beauties arrive from China and be all smashed up in the box!

..if you unplugged the canopy light, could you power your mini-miniguns from the socket? Seems possible.

Hi paul, what have you done to trim off 4.5g? I want to fit a camera when mine arrives so i'll need to put it on a diet.

think I will get a S032 at some point, from you you have said KB the scale up on this works even better than the S026 to S022!
