Looks good!

Only 2 channel - basic controls. Not really worth rrp. Good for winding up the cat though!

What sort of age is this suitable for?

This will be absolutely hopeless - proper gyro ones start from about £15.

Get a Syma S107G from Amazon for £15.99 instead:

I have one myself and bought them as Christmas presents for my nephews.

Going by those 1 star reviews you better have a football or something in back up!

There are 88 5* & 4* reviews and 9 1* so what's your point?

Wanted one but oos ho hum

It says 10+ on the box on the Syma S107G. I'd say it wasn't suitable for young kids.

You've been saved! Buy the Syma - it works!

Another vote for the Syma - another big plus is that you can buy spare parts for it easy enough on Ebay and Amazon....

I have the syma107g. On the box it says 14+ but I let the 9 year old fly it and I bought another one for the 11 year old. I even let my 5 year old have a go but he sent it straight up to the ceiling. Part are very cheap to bought a set of replacement rotors for 98p including delivery.

voted hot.. but will not buy it as i had a bad experience with those indoor ones .. if it says indoor mean not strong enough .. and i can assure you will hit a wall or a ceiling or a table if you play it indoor unless you have a big room with high ceiling in a castle

My 7 year old easily flies Syma 107G, my 3 year old keeps it steady in the air. Just add a few quid and buy a gyro heli, you won't be disappointed!

This one is really not worth the money.

Only 2 channel, worth paying couple quid more to get a 3/3.5 channel.

Thanks for the info. the reviews are very good. My 8 yo wants one but have been reluctant as past purchases have ended in the bin before the day is out.

Yes, S107G good toy helicopter. But be warned, you could get hooked like me, and progress past these coaxial helis, to a flybar heli, then a flybarless and on up through perfomance helis and hundreds of quid!

The challenge of mastering these things is addictive!

...and just think if you win Euromillions on Friday you can buy yourself a real helicopter!

They are using Infra-Red which needs to be near walls or a ceiling to reflect the signal. When used outdoors there are no surfaces to reflect so the helicopter is at risk of loosing the signal and switching off.

I've used a Syma S107G outdoors. It's receiving sensor pokes out of the back so I just made sure it was pointing away from me the whole time.

It didn't like it when it was windy though. It's gyroscopic stabiliser has the side-effect of limiting the speed at which it can move so a gust of wind tends to just blow it away.
