Question MSR or Syma S107?

From what I have been reading, it looks like the MSR is way faster than the s107. And it has additional mods, like the custom radio etc.

My question is the price jump really worth it for a MSR? I recently purchased a Double Horse 9098 heli($28) and a Viefly v268($25). I like the metal body on the 9098, however after a few minor crashes it barely lifts off. But still fun. The v268 is a great lightweight heli.

So basically the next step is getting a little more advanced and finding a copter i can mod and replace parts easily. MSR looks great, however the price of the s107 is great too. Having the gyro seems to really help stability.

Any thoughts on a step-up upgrade and what have you all enjoyed? Thanks

Syma S107 is a toy and only 3 channel. I believe it is infared so range is limited. Does not control like a real rc heli.

MSR is a real rc heli that will teach you orientation and how to fly. It is 2.4 ghz digital so wide range.

It maybe better for you to get a MCX instead, the MSR can really move.

Good luck,
Steven

Thanks for the response profilefan. I also heard people talking about the MCX RTF. It is 4 ch, coaxial.

What would the community prefer? MSR or a MCX for indoor small room flight? Thanks!

As Profilefan mentioned, the MSR can get up and move. For a total beginner (To hobby quality RC helo's, not the toys) I think the MCX is the best bet. The MSR can be fun to hover around, too, but really needs some space when it gets moving.

I went from air hogs helis the msr... I have lots of rc car racing under my belt so that
might be helping.

You ca set up the msr to be pretty slow and quite tame if you get a digital radio like the
dx6i. Then its a flick of a switch to go to fast mode. I am still on slow mode :-)

Fost,
I have an MSR and an MCX that I will let go at a good price, they would both be BNF though so you would need to provide a TX and batteries. Both helicopters have spare parts. PM me if you are interested.
