There's a mod for that (just search S107 in RCG)

Mine runs on hyperion 450mAh battery, removable.

PS: they now sell a version with camera already onboard

(Great little trainer to tease the pets and wife with when work and weather have effectively halted EZ playtime)

I think my grandson has one of those heli things. He don't use it so I think I will nick it when he ain't looking.
The problem is they have GYROS.

I have just been doing a 'Google' on them and it seems that they can be controlled by my iPad.
Can they be flown outdoors in calm conditions, and if so what range?

My first EasyStar


Hi guys, I recently purchased my first EasyStar for me and my son. I've been flying a Parkzone P-51 and chose my "Easy" to improve my own skills and get my son into flying with me!

I'm at the point where I'd like to add the Multiplex Power Pack upgrade to the brushless motor, prop, and upgraded esc. My goal is to add more power and make it more capable flying into the wind, but not so much as to intimidate my 8 yr. old.

I purchased this as a ready-to-fly so everything was put together from the start. I don't have a lot of experience building planes, so I'm looking for some advice on installing the upgraded power pack.

Is there a preferred way to separate the foam around the motor to take out the old and put in the new? This is a drop-in replacement size for the stock motor so it doesn't sound like much modification is needed to make it fit. I'm guessing just an exacto knife to the glue seems to separate it, but wondering if there's a best practice here.

Also, I've been repairing some minor cracks as we go with standard CA which seems to stick some days and not so much other days. What glue do you recommend to use on the plane to reattach with seam after the new motor and overall fixes?

Any guidance is much appreciated! Here's a picture of my "Easy".

No No NO!!!. Poppa. They are too small for them nasty GYRO things.

They really have miniature "thing-a-ca-bobs" that don't like to tip over so they jump side to side to keep the heli level.

I wouldn't want you to have to stoop so low to use anything with GYROS.
