When you first by a R/C helicopter, it is fun, but you notice that it might be slow, the battery life may last a few minutes, and there might be that annoying spring that keeps the throttle down and won't let you hover. These few problems can be cured in a few steps, drastically improving the helicopter.
Notice that this helicopter may not be like yours. These mods are for the Syma S107G and they might be able to work on your helicopter. I am not responsible for any damages, voided warranties, etc. Please be careful when doing these mods. Make sure that you are very good at flying your helicopter the condition you received it in. These mods will make the helicopter harder to fly.
Step 1: Tools
All you need is:
- X-Acto Knife
- Small Phillips Head Screwdriver
Step 2: Removing Extra Parts
If you look on your helicopter you will see many parts that make it look good, but it does not help it much. Most of the removable parts are on the back end of the helicopter, which makes it slow. Remove the bars and all the plastic pieces. Remember to keep all of the parts and screws in case you want to put them back! They are tiny parts and are very easy to lose.
Step 3: Removing the LED
You don't need to do this, but the LED has weight and it uses some of the battery power. I didn't really care about the LED so I removed it by unscrewing the cockpit, cutting the two wires, then removed it from the cockpit. There is also a weight there, if you want your helicopter to last longer, take it off. If you want your helicopter to go fast, glue it back.
