Syma really set the standard for providing an entry level RC helicopter at an affordable price by making the Syma S107 RC Helicopter. This $20.00 indoor helicopter was made with a great deal of thought and quality so that owners could enjoy flying this helicopter over and over again without it breaking or needing to make repairs.
Syma S107 RC Helicopter Review
The Syma S107 helicopter comes in three different colors which include yellow, blue and red. I purchased two different colors so my children could determine which one was theirs. The colors are very bright which make them easy to see when flying.
This helicopter comes with a USB charger. You can either plug it in to your computer or to a USB wall charger. Depending on the how you charge it the helicopter could take anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour to fully charge.
This helicopter comes with a few spare blades. You can purchase replacement parts if needed but it would almost make more sense to purchase a new helicopter than to purchase additional parts. With that being said the parts are very durable and despite many crashes within my home the helicopters are working like the first day I received it.
You can expect between 7 and 10 minutes of flight time depending on your flying habits. This is a pretty decent amount of time for this size of helicopter.
Indoor Flight Only
Due to this helicopter being extremely light I highly recommend this helicopter be used indoors only. I have personally taken this helicopter outside with the slightest of breezes and the helicopter took off uncontrollably. It is great for indoor use but not outdoor use. The range for this helicopter is 30’. If you are indoors then it shouldn’t be an issue.
The controller has alignment trim, a charge power indicator, and left and right trimmer. The controls are completely suitable for controlling this helicopter the way you want. The transmitter takes 6 AA batteries.
There are two frequencies to choose from so you can have two of these helicopters flying at the same time.
This RC helicopter is designed for beginners and includes a GYRO that makes for stable flight experience. The turns are mild and never drastic which helps new flyers learn the basics of flying.

This is a great starter RC Helicopter at a great price. The Syma S107 RC Helicopter is suitable for ages 5 years and up (my 5 year old has learned to fly with supervision). It is a great way to get children interested in a hobby without spending a ton of money. The GYRO allows for the flyer to fly and not worry about crashing. I can’t say enough good things about this RC Helicopter. How can you beat the price?
