 Hey, I have the syma s107g. Problems started after I cerhgad heli and put new battiers in transmitter.the thing will fly great for about 1 or 2 minutes then just drop to the floor. start right back up for 1 or 2 minutes´╗┐ then drop to the floor again.seems like it is loosing the signal from the transmitter.I bought a second s107g because I wanted to see if it was just a fluke on the first one.the second s107g did the same as the first.can anyone give me an idea as to what might be happening.
