The engin keeps cutting out

When it's at about half power or more, the engine will just stop, and to get it going again i have to let go of the throttle and push it up again. it's only a few days old so i don't know whats wrong with it. any advice?

I put tons of oil in the top and back rotor and it seemed to fix it. Seems like there is a vibration sensing chip that shuts off the motor when there is too much vibration. A little note though, the helicopter will be a little heavier thus flying a little less nimble. That is actually good since it will be easier to fly.

As far as the green light on the charger not coming on, after I tested the batteries in the remote, I found that it was due to 2 of the 6 batteries in the remote control being dead (like 0.1volts) The charger probably sucks the power out of the #1 and #6 battery.

Another thing: you can buy lots of replacement parts on Ebay for cheap.

Hope that helps

PS: Those who see this toy as fragile and clumsy probably don't appreciate the technology involved in it. 20 years ago, similar technology was only being developed by the US army's experimental labs. Now it's available to us for about $20 (up here in Canada).

My t maxx 3.3 does not keep running

Need more info, when does it cut out? If its cutting out when braking then youre idle screw will need to be turned clockwise a touch as this will prevent carb from closing and cutting engine.

Trouble startin , does not go full throttle and keeps stoppin.

First make sure you have about 1mm gap on carb opening and fine tune with trims. The high end needle can now be turned in about 1/4 of a turn and start. Keep trying to start while turning high end needle in a fraction in at a time, say after about 5 to 8 pulls of starter. Once engine is started come back out with screw a fraction to see if runs ok if not go back in.

Problems with RC engine not running right!

Theres a idle screw located on engine under airfilter, should be small flat head. Clockwise will stop the carb from closing thus not cutting engine of. Also make sure you run car slightly richer than leaner. Hope this helps.

No power to track and/or train. Power to Holiday Express Train

Check the power circuit that goes to the track if there is an open circuit, open circuit means, break or cut line that can not flow the current going to the track to give a power to the train, ok.

No power

Keep changing parts until you find the solution! No, just kidding. Many will do this if they don't understand how an engine works. It sounds like it may be a hung choke. Engines need extra fuel when cold, and die when warm if they are still getting that extra fuel. Also, low oil level will give the same indication. There are many variables.
