Picture of Flying the R73-ops Apache / Syma S109g RC Heli with Gyro.
The R73-OPS is the same heli as the Syma S109G, it's just re-branded. You can get it prized at $39 us dollars or $30 us dollars.
It's very hard but not impossible to get it at $25 us dollars.

So, if you are interested, go to the first step.(description).

Step 1: Description!!!

Picture of Description!!!
For it's size, it has great detail.
It's 3.86 inches in height, 1.5 inches in width , and is 8.66 inch in length.
The main rotors are 7.48 inches each, and are counter-rotating.
The tail rotor is 1.18 inches.
The heli has two led lights. 
You can't fly it outside because it uses a inferred emitter for the controller.
It's a three Chanel heli.
Even though it has a giro, it sometimes needs trimming.
One thing that I did not like is that it takes 40-50 min. to charge. And 5-6 min. of non-stop flight time.

Step 2: EXTRA PARTS!! :D

Please read step #4 for why it is done. It might also be where you get it from.

This one came with extra blade parts.
Rear and main rotors.

Step 3: Flying!!! Flying!!!

Well, what can I say. It is super easy to fly it.
It's very responsive to the controls, and it can hover good enough. It drifts a little during the hover but not enough to make it move a lot.

Well, here is a video. I hope you like it.
