I bought 2 for my 12 and 10 year old boys. They broke within a week... Seems like the motors died on both units.

I've got a S107 and it works great. However, Meritline just had a sale on the slightly larger, newer version Syma S800G which is 4 channel for $22 shipped. Better control and faster forward and reverse. I love that one more and the S800G comes with an extra set of blades and cockpit. That alone is worth a couple of extra bucks, so this deal is not that hot for a 2 year old model. I'd wait for the S800G to go onsale again vs this one. Just my $0.02
From the picture, it's just a S107G with a different paint job, like BlurryEyed alluded to (though didn't explain). The regular S107G is available for almost $5 less from Amazon and as low as under $17 in the past.
Definitely true the controller is worst than the S107, its way too small. However, 4 channels gives you banking ability. The S107 just spins to turn and the rear rotor is way too small to propel forward motion. Even when done indoors, it's really slow. Great durability though, you can literally drop it from 12 feet up down to the ground, then full throttle and it right itself and fly again.
