SOURCE: heli max hicro helicopter just keeps spinning in circles

Make sure you used the right blades, the top and bottom blades are different parts and if you try to replace an upper blade with a lower blade it will mess up the flight. The two sets of blades are reversed, the leading edge is on the opposite side because they spin in opposite directions.

If you are sure you have the correct blades, try to eliminate vibrations, especially in the upper rotor. Vibrations can throw off the gyro sensor and cause the helicopter to spin. If it isn't vibrating then you need to adjust the trim. If it is just a slight spin, you can try using the horizontal trim adjustment on the left stick. If this is not able to correct the spin, set the horizontal trim on the left stick to center and then remove the plastic canopy. On the circuit board you will see two screw adjustments labeled "SENS" and "SCALE". First, draw a mark on both of them with a marker making sure to touch both the screw and the plastic or board. This mark will be used to reset the knobs to their original positions if you mess up. The "SENS" (sensitivity) knob adjusts how hard the helicopter responds to the gyro. The "SCALE" (rotor scale) adjusts the balance between the two rotors. If it is a smooth rotation (as opposed to a skittish, jumpy, or erratic rotation), you need to adjust the SCALE knob as one rotor is consistently faster than the other. On the other hand, if it is erratic and jumpy, randomly spinning in quick bursts, you should adjust the SENS knob. Erratic spinning is a result of the gyro detecting vibrations and overcompensating, throwing the helicopter in a circle. Play with these knobs, try just slight adjustments and keep going until it flies right. Have common sense, don't turn the knobs too far at once, just small adjustments will make it easier. Also if turning the knob one direction makes it worse, go the other direction. If you turn the SCALE knob too much you may lose lifting power because it will reduce the maximum power of one of the motors.

SOURCE: how do i fly my spin master air hog rc helicopter

If its a Reflex twin rotor Heli use the trim wheel on top to counteract the spin and at least stabilize the craft at hover. Then use the right/left froward backward fans to control flight, (right joystick on the controller). These fans are not very powerful so don't expect alot from them other than turning the craft right left and reverse. Seems there is too much down draft from the rotors to effectively move the Heli forward. Not a real good design. The Sharpshooter is easier to fly but uses the batteries in the controller as a charger so they don't last real long.

SOURCE: my rc helicopter can not fly it spin in floor

Hi
This type of helicopter uses a fixed pitch blade. Have you recently replaced one or all the blades? If the blades are correctly positioned then once the motor comes to speed, the pitch of the blade creates enough lift to overcome the force of gravity. The problem you're having can only be that the motor is not coming to speed or the blades have been replaced but the pitch is now at the wrong angle.

If you trimmed your heli but it still can't work, try using the direction knob to trim it instead. When it goes clockwise push th knob leftwards and hold, and vise versa for anti-clockwise. Or, push and release repeatedly in the direction mentioned till it flies straight. Tested on around 6 air hogs helis and works each time. If you still can't trim you might try it after turning it off or contact the service centre.

SOURCE: My helicopter won't take off,

This issue is the "Drive Gear Unit" It is the small gear just above the motors which is attached to the very large gear. You will have seen several posts indicating that sometimes this gear shifts and does not engage the larger gear. In my case I looked and say that it was indeed trying to engage the larger gear, however the gear is stripped (the teeth are nearly gone). The sound that you are hearing is the sound of the gear slipping against the Bigger gear. I have a UJ365 which is a newer model. To my disappointment I cannot find a "Drive Gear Unit" anywhere on line. The copter will not function without it. This issue is that it takes the lift of both rotors to lift the copter into the air. There are two motors (one for each rotor) and each motor has one of these drive gear units. Each of these attach to the larger gears which turn the rotors. The rotors each turn in the opposite direction. This is what keeps the copter from continually turning in one direction. When one of the "main Gear Units" becomes damaged it seems to have three noticeable effects. (1) There is a noise that is the gear grinding against the bigger gear. (2) Because many of the teeth are stripped the drive gear engages the bigger bear only some of the time, this causes the rotor to turn slower and in-turn causes there not to be enough lift from the rotors to lift the copter. And finally (3), someone noted that copter wants to spin in one direction. Understanding the above, you can now understand that if one of the rotors is not reaching its full potential to turn, it is also not reaching its full potential to counter act the other fully functioning rotor. Thus the fully functioning rotor is forcing the copter to spin in its direction and the malfunctioning rotor is not spinning fast enough to stop the spin.

So this is the answer to your questions, hopefully on the older models there will be parts available for you to replace it. The copter cannot work until the part is replaced.

Helicopter not stable


Hi, I had a toilet bowl effect after changing the blades on my s107g. After making sure the shaft was seated properly, I simply adjusted the tension on the screws holding the blades in position and after a bit of trial and error tightening and loosening: it's as good as new!

Just got a s301g Helicopter and it won't start up


Check the wiring where you plug in the charger to the helicopter. There is a red wire with quick disconnects. If its loose (the quick disconnect) you get this problem. In my case the helicopter came out of the box with this completely disconnected. It was hard to connect because there wasn't enough slack wire but once we did it the white light on the front of the helicopter came on and we were flying.

Make sure the drive shaft is seated properly. Gently, but firmly push it down towards the body both above and below bottom rotor. Also check shaft for any hair, thread or such thing that may be wrapped around it.

Let me know if you're still having issues, and we'll dig a little deeper.

My helicopter (SO32 Gyro) having previously worked perfectly now will only hover. I have tried recharging it but it makes no difference. I wonder if I have overcharged the battery and if it is possible to...


Batteries are available online (amazon and many others) and change easily with only small screwdriver. Overcharging is not the issue. Nearly impossible with PCB (overcharge prevention circuit) hard wired into battery AND in charger. Problem is likely UNDERcharging, overDIScharging, or improper battery care. Battery MUST be allowed to cool 10 minutes after flying. Charge until light on charger doesn't get any brighter when helicopter is unplugged... light comes on (dim at first) well before full charge. 10 minute cool-down after charge also a MUST. And, most important, when flying, as soon as you are unable to maintain altitude, land helicopter and power it off. Li/Po batteries should never be fully drained. Even one full discharge can cripple or ruin entirely your helicopter's battery.

hope this helps.. let me know,

Hi I have a gyro helicopter which spins in circles after taking a hit... Its a Police Gyro Helicopter from thumbsupuk Do you have any solutions for this? Thanks


Make sure that the balancer wheel/rotor at the rear is not damaged while it had the fall/hit.
If so make sure that the tails is rectified. Once the rear is damaged the helicopter stabilizes on the movement of the rear rotor as the top main rotors need a counter balance.
So it is possible that this mechanism is damaged and must be recitfied.

Heli max hicro helicopter just keeps spinning in circles


Spinning is caused by one of the main propellers rotating faster than the other. If both propellers are secured tightly to their drive shafts, the spin control knob on the remote control can be used to stop the spin. However, if one prop is slipping with respect to the other, the spin control knob will not fix the problem.
I've found that the set screws holding the propellers to the drive shafts tend to loosen after a while. If one prop is a bit loose and the other is tight, the relative slippage will cause the helicopter to spin.
To check, turn off helicopter power and manually rotate each propeller separately, watching the nylon gears in the body. If the propeller is moving and its drive shaft gear isn't, the propeller is slipping because its set screws are not applying enough pressure on the propeller's drive shaft.
Carefully tighten the set screw and the problem should be fixed. DON'T OVERTIGHTEN, or the plastic threads for the set screw will be stripped and the propeller assembly will be ruined.
