Main rotor does not spin on brand new Air Hogs Havoc Stinger heli

We have opened the package and charged the batteries to full, but the main rotor will not spin. The rear rotor spins just fine. Any ideas or help on this?

    I have the same problem, but it started on the second charge up. For the first charge everything worked perfectly. Charged up again (according to all instructions) and then main rotor no longer spun. Tail rotor still works.

After having the same problem I got through on the phone to spinmaster this morning (it only took about five minutes). They said the problem is likely that either the gears have slipped or the shaft has disconnected from the gears and motor. They said the problem cannot be fixed by the user and the solution is to get a warranty replacement.

After opening a warrant case and giving me a case number (important!), the customer service rep asked me to email a copy of my receipt along with a picture of the helicopter with the main rotor cut off (to show that we weren't using it any longer) to their warranty department along with the case number and a description of the problem. She said they would ship out a replacement within two to six weeks. Hopefully this works. Good luck.

Hi, the main rotor of my havoc helicopter is spinning in an unbalanced way and causing a high level of vibration making flight impossible

Look on the underside of the rotor. You may be missing one of the small metal weights that balance the rotors.

How do you remove and replace the main rotor on the Havoc Stinger? I wasn't able to find a replacement blade for this specific model. Will the replacement blade for the Havoc heli work. Mine is clear not...

I just experience breaking my 1st main rotor and replaced it.
What you need are a pair of needle nose pliers and a hair dryer.
Put the hair dryer on "HOT" and blow on the rotor plastic shaft for
about 1 minute. Then take the needle nose pliers, lightly clamp
them on the plastic shaft and lift. It should slide off the metal shaft.
Next I took the hair dryer again and heated the replacement rotor
shaft for about 1 minute and pushed in on the metal shaft with my fingers.
Hope this helps.

Problem with the back rotor.

make sure there is no debris such as hair thread or string caught in the back rotor. this will cause it to lock up. Remove it and try fiddling with the trimmer button to help it stop spinning the helicopter

My Havoc Heli got wet

Most likely you short circuited something and now it can't be fixed. I would send it back to the company to be replaced.
