Hey this thing's getting better looking!
Yeah I know they are better made and probably fly better but notice that they don't show you the BARE bottom...it's hardly scale....just a Lexan shell

Why do I feel dirty talking about this?

Hi whats up guys

Just joined the site today and would like to say Hi and great site you have here , At the min i've got no major Heli im flying 2 S032's which are great fun and had no problems what so ever with either of them !

After reading here everyone having a top time with the SO22 im gonna have to go get one tomorrow as im the most impatient person in the world i'll just get down model zone around the corner from me and get one £49.99 which isn't all bad ! and if it goes horribly wrong they replace with a newy rather than sending a million mails which i cant be arsed with for saving 2p

As i've got the Heli bug i wanted to get something that was bigger and flew out doors without being blown away like my S032's Wanted something about the S031 size, Any recommendations would be great? the S022 looks pretty good outdoors tho ..

A

No copter provides more* joy sitting in the box than the S031. Stunning in detail, flies like a...well, just see for yourself...
Syma S031 Indoor Maiden Flight Test (3 min 5 sec)

Really, people report this is what the out of box is typically like!
Mine was only slightly better. Problem is, like the S032 and s006G, once the motors wear, the PCB won't power them. Sad.

*Most of the amount it offers, anyway.

I think you caught the humor: "Yeah, it's working NOW, but just wait".

Had the Big Chinook outside last night, NO wind, mild temps, very nice time out. It seems this model finds an equilibrium a few moments into a flight, almost like it has to warm up while you punch the (now memorized) trim adjusts. Once this is done, it just zooms around.
I've said it before, but it bears repetition: This is a FAST coaxial Helicopter.

Checked out your pics Killbucket , Very nice work mate like the S032 paint job
Yeah had no hassle with my S032 at all must be over 20 flights , No crashes tho its a piece of cake to fly you can fly it with one hand ! good fun for round the house out side and the slightest of breeze its off !

Got my S022 today good fun ! Just getting used to trimming it up pre flight havent had it more that a few meters up yet tho ! try that later mabe ! ....

To be fair with these little choppers if they go tits up ! You'll go straight back to the shop and get replaced id only open them up and start replacing if id crashed it !


Ps everyone knows what cackle is Bro !

I know what a cackle is, just the word wasn't yet in my little english dictionnary. As you can propably see, english is not my native language, and looking under my name on the left of this post, you can conclude that I'm french. So the translation is "rire démoniaque".

Hi , I have been reading this very good thread on the so22 chinook and i have seen loads of videios on YT but would like your advice . Although i would very much like to get a so22 i am also in love with the Twister hawk , i think by JP , not sure. Which one would be the best buy do you think. I must admit i am starting to lean towards the so22 after reading this great thread.

My two cents:
The JP Twister hawk and Syma S022 are like comparing apples and oranges-

1. For me the twister hawk is more expensive. Hobby Lobby's version would cost $128 ship while I paid $65 shipped from Ebay.

2. I'm only guessing but quality control is probably better with the twister hawk.

3. Flight control is probably better with the twister hawk

So why do we love the S022?

1. Very scale looks with lights!
2. Fun to fly that loose cabose
3. Fast forward flight outdoors when the conditions are right
4. Good power
5. It's CHEAP! I can buy TWO Chinooks for ONE Twister

NICE.

I need to write one that ties "S031" and Weber Grill" together nicely.
