Design of SYMA F3

The kit contains the SYMA F3 helicopter, a remote control, spare tail and main blades, battery, USB charging cable, lower blades and a manual.  The 25cm x6cm x 9cm, 730g F3 is available in three-color combos of orange-red-yellow, white-black-red and yellow-green-black. The remote control is radio control in 2.4Gz which is ideal if there is a great number of helicopters flying at the same time. Functions of the 4-Channel heli are up/down, left/right, forward/backward and sideward flight. The inclusive battery is 3.7V 150mAm Li-poly with a USB charging time of 60 minutes and flying time of 5 to 6 minutes.Syma F3

The F3’s frame is plastic which is hard enough for an appropriate casing and light enough to fly. This model has a built-in gyro system for more stable flights and hover. The remote control can be effectively used at 30 meters.

Flying a SYMA F3

Flying an F3 indoors is relatively easy to handle for experienced hobbyists and accurate in its rounds.  This helicopter has the capacity for smooth take-offs in almost all types of surface and on narrow passages without a remarkable spin effect as it leaves the ground. This statement is softly countered by other F3 owners as they say the helicopter pulls to the left.  This could be explained by the fact that the torque of a solo motor combined with a rotor blade’s increasing aerodynamic force will naturally pull the RC heli to the left or to the direction the rotor rotates.  It is “agile” and more stable than other single rotor RC helicopters in the market. It is so stable, one user said he flies and hovers the F3 in his cramped bedroom.

Pros and Cons of SYMA F3

The SYMA F3 RC helicopter will automatically power-off when choked.  Its radio remote control uses Spread Spectrum Technology for better remote distance (30 meters).  Aside from the wider range of the 2.4 GHz radio remote control, this system allows for a lot of helicopters to fly without interference.  The F3 can handle both indoor and outdoor flying with an option to fly in low or high speed.

The F3’s transmitter is in the default Mode 2 which is just like an ordinary 3-channel helicopter.  It is better to switch to Mode 1 to set the F3 into a 4 channel heli. However, the instructions manual is not very clear as how to switch from Mode 2 to Mode 1.   After some tweaks, the modes can be toggled by pressing down button A to the right as the controller is being switched on.syma f3 with remote

Conclusion

This RC heli is quite fast even in low speed. It would take some skills and practice to excellently fly a SYMA F3.  After some practice and tweaks on an F3, this durable and affordable RC helicopter is fun to fly.  After some adjustments, the Syma F3 4-Channel 2.4G Single Rotor Helicopter could be one amazing micro helicopter.
