Welcome to the day three of the 14 day, rc helicopter review challenge at props and wheels. If you are new to this series, we decided to review 14 beginner friendly rc helicopters of 2021 available this year in 14 days and give you our honest feedback. Why are we doing that? Because we think that beginner friendly rc helicopters are very important in getting new people into the hobby and staying so today we have this. Sima s107g g stands for gyroscope. I got this through facebook marketplace, so you’re going to say is that used? No someone was selling it brand new. I opened the the seal on this one. Usually these sell for twenty dollars or more in amazon or ebay anywhere, and i got this for eleven dollars. It looks like it has been sitting somewhere on a shelf, probably for a long time, because the battery was completely depleted and it didn’t revive back. So what i did was i purchased, so this is the original battery. This is all gone it didn’t charge. So i got five new batteries for ten dollars from ebay, so two dollars each and i have other helicopters that need new batteries so i’m going to use the rest of them there. So for 13 i got myself a brand new sima. Okay, let me show what is inside Music, so here it is the helicopter itself which has an integrated battery, which i replaced today and i just test fluid and it works well, and this is of high quality.
It feels high quality. Skids are metal, the frame and this tail boom and the side booms are all metal and the plastic is solid plastic nicely painted not like cheap plastic and also the rotor blades are nice. They seem to be very resilient, not one of those brittle plastics. These are soft, so they can take some hitting walls or furniture. The transmitter is kind of large. The reason is, it also has a little charging cable, so you can just take these two to the field and charge it on the field. You don’t need a usb plug somewhere, but if you want to charge it at home, there’s also the usb adapter one tail rotor and a very short bi fold manual, which has diagrams and schematics and all that enough for getting up to speed. By the way. I should let you know that there are no functions except this trim function on this, so these are not really buttons and it takes six double a batteries. Why are we yeah that’s a lot? Probably because it’s also charging the lipo battery on the helicopter, and you can fly two helicopters at the same time – there’s a switch, a b for the different channels and, of course, it’s infrared. One thing i don’t like about infrared is: if something comes between the transmitter and the helicopter, it will usually spin down the prop and then slowly descend or it will fall out of sky. Also, if there are any infrared sources like the sun, it can interfere with the signal, so outdoor flying is kind of tricky, and the third issue is the range you won’t have too much rain, because this is line of sight.
It is not radio waves, just uh infrared light, let’s see how much it weights 40.74 grams more than the jjrc capital less than the drc. De51 no surprises there. The first thing is turning on this: on off switch it’s on the right hand, side and the lights is blinking, let’s put it on our helipad and then i’m going to turn on the transmitter, and it should be ready to go. Let’S see slowly administer throttle very nice. It has a slow left turn tendency because i was playing it to trim. So let me trim it out using this little trim wheel, it’s still to the right, and i think it is stable, now very stable, slowly, moves forward. Let’S come forward. This is a full full speed, i’m, just pushing all the way full speed and it is proportional. If i decrease it, you know it’s moving a little slower. The tail floor is still spinning, it’s coming a little slower, and this is full speed again and let’s let’s see how fast it rotates. This is full right rotation without going forward. This is full left location, quite gentle, and i can only tell that this is not going to be a good after flyer unless it is completely calm because it doesn’t have a speed rate switch or multiple speed modes. So this is only one speed Music. It is nice for playing it playing with it at home, probably so it’s so stable. So i mean this is hands off.
I just adjusted throttle, maybe just decreased slightly and you just modulate the throttle. So, as you can see right now, hands off, i might have to adjust the slight trim adjustment. Let me get it back into the camera’s view, so yeah very, very stable, no nonsense and let’s go backwards, so this is the full throttle backwards, it’s losing a little bit altitude when it’s going backwards. So, probably because it is uh pushing down, it is pushing the whole helicopter down, as you can see, because the rear rotor is pushing the helicopter down. When i do this so it’s kind of losing out, so you have to increase the trowel a little bit. Okay, so next i’m, going to let my younger son kai, apply it he’s a novice, but he has flown helicopters before so. Let’S get his opinion what he thinks. Okay, it is time for our young reviewer kaya to try out this three channel. Sema helicopter go ahead. Kai, whenever you’re ready, it’s not different than the first two that you did so you can rotate it rotate it towards you. It doesn’t it doesn’t go fast. When you are trying to fly backwards, it flies much better forwards. Music there’s a trim on in the center, but i think it’s trimmed okay. If this doesn’t yeah this doesn’t have the speed function so it’s only one speed. Okay, what do you think um come over here? It’S easy as any other three channel helicopter so compared to like the yesterday’s, was a little larger, the white and red one, maybe that one.
This is a little smaller and it’s, also slower. I find that this one, you found a little more difficult yeah, because it’s smooth really but maybe it’s anyone else. It could be easy to come. Otherwise, it’s pretty easy. So do you recommend this to beginners? I would recommend this to beginners, which did you buy it. This one brand new it sells, for, i think, 20 22, but i got this from facebook marketplace. It was brand new, but i think it was sitting in somebody’s basement or room for probably over a year, because the battery was all depleted, but i replaced the battery now it’s good, so i mean it’s brand new it’s, a brand new battery so total with the Battery i paid 13. Do you think it’s worth it? I think it’s very worth it okay. Well, do you think we would fly this out outdoors as well? Yeah, probably it feels like an indoor and outdoor yeah, but it’s windy. Do you think it will do well in the wind, probably not yeah, it’s too slow right, yeah too slow too small yeah too slow too small, says our reviewer young reviewer? Thank you much kaya bye, surprise. I know i said this is not a good helicopter to fly outdoors, but we lucked out today. There was a storm front that left and right now, it’s almost that calm, maybe a few miles per hour, and i think this little helicopter can take it.
So i wanted to come outside after sunset. The sun is already set, so there shouldn’t be too much infrared light around. That will interfere with the controller, so let’s see if it’s going to be able to fly it and you may be able to see the lights as well. I think it’s dark enough. Okay, so the wind is coming towards me and then this is basically full full forward i’m just giving full forward, and when i, of course did that it lost the line of sight. I keep forgetting this is infrared, so you have to hold it towards the helicopter. At all times, i did that to be able to show what i’m doing on my head cam and it lost the line of sight. So it fell out of the sky, so that’s. What happens like that? You are flying and, if i put my hand in front it’s going to take a second, probably all right, it didn’t fall out. Maybe maybe it is still flying for a couple seconds before it does that, but very nice. Yes, you can fly it outdoors. It needs to be very calm, though, so there is a very, very slight wind, maybe one or two miles per hour, and it is flying against the wind right now so i’m going to turn it around, and you will see it’s going to come towards us faster Because now it’s like full full forward and then if i stop it, this is basically it’s drifting.
It is drifting with the with the wind right now yeah. The wind is kind of like changing now, as you can see now, it’s blowing towards me a little bit, but it is very nice. It is high quality sema. I like siemens, that brand easy to fly it doesn’t have any gimmicks and let’s fly a little high up, so you can see it against the clouds and you can also see the little light. That’S blinking and i don’t even have to play with the throttle too much. It is quite stable once you adjust the throttle, it is quite stable and that’s it the outdoor flight. I was not expecting that, but hey, i wanted to add it to the end of the our video. So thank you very much for watching another video is coming tomorrow. We are in the 14 day challenge, so stay tuned for that stay, safe and healthy. Take care.
