I think most people enjoy opening a box with a gift, am I right? It really doesn’t make a difference if you know what’s inside or not, if you’re told this is a box with a gift, then you want to open it. This is also true for self-given gifts, and this is why today I want to share with you what happened when I first opened my syma S107G helicopter. On today’s post I’ll reveal to you all the details of the unboxing of this fantastic helicopter, also, I want to share with you some interesting things about it that will serve you for future reference.
If you’ve ever considered starting with RC helicopters but you’re not sure if these gadgets are for you, I invite you to bare with me here since I’ll show you how simple, fun, and entertaining these devices are.
One of the things I love about opening ready-to-fly RC helis is that as soon as you charge the battery, you can start to have fun.
Now is the time to give you a list of everything you’ll be able to find inside the box of your Syma S107G model.
- The Syma S107G Helicopter RTF (Ready to Fly) x1
- The 2.4 GHz transmitter x1
- Instructions Manual (in English) x1
- USB Charging cable x1
- Extra tail rotor blade x1
It’s probable that in the future Syma changes the contents of the package, but for the version that I got, the list you see above is what you get. Don’t worry if the list seems too small, you get everything you need to start having fun as soon as you get the heli out of the box, and even when this is something they don’t advertise, I got my helicopter’s battery pre-charged, so I was able to take off right away!
Another important thing to consider about the contents of the box is the box itself. I really like to take care of my things, and these gadgets are no exception. I actually liked the box in which the heli came in. If you plan to have a collection of these devices, I recommend you to save the box and take good care of it as well. The box is really nice, and if you accommodate an area for your helis (you’ll see that soon you’ll want to have more), it is a great idea to keep the box and storage your heli inside of it; thus you’ll prevent it gets dusty or fluffy.
Now that we’re getting into the important details of this device, I want to take the opportunity to give you a good tour around your helicopter and briefly describe some of the most important components of the S107G.
You want to remember that this is a coaxial helicopter, and this is because it has two sets of main rotor blades, the upper and the lower set. These two sets spin in opposite direction to each other. thus, the helicopter is very stable, since the torque reaction is eliminated, and the helicopter doesn’t spin in the air like crazy.
This is another of the components that you want to take good care of, since it’s prone to get damaged due to crashes and rough landings. The fly bar helps the helicopter to keep the balance when flying. I’m preparing another post with a more detailed description of this component, but for now, know that it’s important to keep this part healthy and in good shape. In this case the S107G has a metallic fly bar with a rubber cover, making it strong and resistant to crashes as well.
This is one of the most important parts of the design, since it gives the helicopter a personality. The cockpit of this device is beautifully painted and has a great design, and you have to accept it; it makes the S107G look great. This also protects the battery that comes from factory with the heli, so if you ever want to replace or upgrade your battery package, the cockpit is the component to remove.
This is another part that can get damaged pretty quick, since is the one that’s in direct contact with the floor during the takeoff and landing. The S107G’s landing gear is made of strong metal and it’s designed to withstand dozens of crashes.
Made of metal, it serves as protection for the gearing and electronics of the device. It also provides support to some components, and serves as a strong base for the whole helicopter.
Most of times, the tail rotor blade is installed to provide direction and stability to the helicopter. In this case, this component’s purpose is not the stability, but just to aid the helicopter to move forward and backward. This we know because the Syma S107G’s tail rotor blade spins in a vertical axis relative to the floor.
I hope you enjoyed this post, now I invite you to watch this short but useful video in which I do an unboxing of the Syma S107G and give you a detailed description of it.
I’m challenging you now, I dare you to get your Syma S107G and see for yourself that these helis are super fun and super simple to use and master.
