sure, but Hobbypartz doesn't carry models. the UPS shipping for a small micro size heli is about $12 for me although I'm only about 30 miles away from Nitro/HP/XHeli, so the free shipping for models is a big savings.

Amazon does has a page with the same white S107 as what Nitroplanes lists. A few days ago my son noticed that on different Amazon pages, there were two different green S107 color schemes shown, and we then checked on the white S107's and noticed the two different white schemes also.
BTW, no guarantee that the S107 ordered from Amazon will have the exact color design as pictured on the Amazon page. Recently I received a yellow genuine Syma S107 from Amazon but with a new yellow color scheme similar to the white S107 on the above link.

The free shipping offer from Nitroplanes must be for CONUS only, utilizing UPS Ground. Tried an order with Priority Mail shipping and they would have charged their usual Priority shipping rates. Do appreciate seeing the price and shipping tips mentioned on this thread.
That's right, free shipping is for standard Ground UPS, which is no big deal, as long you get your toys.

S108g Cobra for $18.30. Add a funky 4-ch S800g for $20 more and get free shipping.
Just ordered my second one (Amazon Prime, might be here tomorrow) as the first was getting a bit beat up after 1yr and well over 50 flights.
Same super smooth controls as the S107, just much cooler looking

When I got this chopper, I was pretty happy. This was my first RC helicopter, and I'm happy with it! It's really stable, easy to control, and it's currently on its first charge.

Ditto, Kurt. I love the S108G, as much as I love the S107G. I highly recommend it.

Wow, this is a new low for S107G, low price, that is.

This morning, the yellow S107G is available at Amazon for $17.99 only. Standard FSSS conditions apply. But just buy two Hehe.

Perhaps, you could argue that this is not the all-time low, because I have bought them at lower price even. But, you need to remember that you can't beat the careful packaging from Amazon. Every S107G I purchased there came in pristine condition. And they are backed by an excellent return policy.

One more secret advantage. You see the Product page showing a Classic S107G? The last bird I received from Battery Superstore was a 2012 edition (at Classic price). Now, that's a deal. I highly recommend this seller.

Heli Pad, I'm not playing one upsmanship, but on the page you cited there's a cheaper red one.

No, good for you, Stone. I didn't see that. The red one is indeed cheaper! Thanks for pointing that out to the members.

I also want to caution people that I don't know all the Amazon sellers and there are so many of them. I could only recommend the ones I have dealt with. You may find lower prices than the one I recommend, but you buy at your own risk.

EDIT: That temporary lower price didn't last. The Red one is more expensive now - which tells us that we are most likely seeing the lowest price or very close to it.

That's just good practice.
I'm guilty of not always checking the seller on Amazon, but gotta say over my years on Amazon I'm batting ~.990.

I buy most of my life stuff there. Except for food, paper products, 2x4s, classic car parts, and non-3-ch-and-S800g-helis. Though I just got a HS81 servo delivered in 2 days for $14 from the big A.

(this is only for people who are new to S107's - you old farts already know this... )



Battery Superstore is one of Amazon's best vendors when it comes to S107's. They're always reliable, always keep their servers updated with accurate stock-count, and their S107's are always "the real thing".
