This NEW SH-6030 Lightning also called the C7 Spy Heli is a palm size helicopter equipped with gyroscope for stable flight and a DV Cam The cam is built in, so there is no need to put your own camera on it. Even with the video camera it is balanced well (CG), and hovers right out of the box. You can control it in 3 directions, up & down, forward & backward as well as to turn clockwise and anti-clockwise. The helicopter flies very stable , you can easily control it to land on most surfaces. you can control the camera by the transmitter.
This little heli is a lot of fun,the camera shots are a bit small but really ok for the size of the camera, hovers well out of the box, to me takes a long time to charge for a 6 minute flight.
Often forgotten power requirement is the transmitter itself. In this case the Transmitter requires 6 AA batteries.
You can control it in 3 directions, up & down, forward & backward as well as to turn clockwise and anti-clockwise.

Would I buy the Sanhuan SH-6030 C7
Considering the price at around $58 plus postage,I think ok what do I really get,but more important is do you want to fly a heli with a Spy Camera? If not go for the Syma S107G
No not knocking the SH-6030 far from it but you have to consider the cost for a heli with a camera-the Syma S107 you can buy for $20, no camera mind you, just fly’s well.
Consider this you also get a with your C7 Heli
Is the Gyro:The gyro is an essential component in many RC helicopters. Gyros in RC helicopters are most commonly used to control unwanted movement on the yaw axis. When an RC helicopter rotates on its yaw axis, the direction the nose points (the heading) changes.
The yaw gyro’s job is to sense any undesired rotation around the yaw axis (clockwise or counter clockwise rotation when viewed from above), and to automatically correct the orientation of the RC helicopter. Without a yaw gyro, even if the RC helicopter was trimmed out to fly straight initially, it would eventually begin to drift and rotate right or left. Normal maneuvering of the RC helicopter and external forces can result in undesired yaw rotation.
When this occurs, the gyroscope senses this change in yaw and corrects it. This results in stable flight for the RC helicopter and no undesired changes in yaw. With coaxial structure, it provides a more steady flight. The helicopter also features full metal structure that provides high strength upon crash!
In all yes I would buy a Copter VMax Helicopter: Sanhuan SH-6030
If you are not into spy camera videos no would not-Also remember this is like the Syma S107 a infra red remote so hates bright sunlight and digital TV
Having said that I really have fun with this bird,point to mention let the battery cool down between flights before recharging for 15 minutes as battery will not last,also never fly until drops out of the sky as lipo batteries can get to a point of never being able to recharge-Look after the power source.
The best buying options as I see it are listed below for the Copter VMax Helicopter: Sanhuan SH-6030
