Question about Air Hogs Havoc Heli Helicopters

3 Answers

My helicopter won't fly, it just spins around.

When we try to fly it, it won't go up. it just spins around on whatever we put it on.when we hold it, and let it go, it crashes. it looks fine.
what do we do?

    My havoc heli spins around and won't get off the ground and this is after the tail prop broke and i replaced it. i also noticed that the tail is broken. all of the troubleshooting sites i've been to don't list this as a possible problem. can anyone shed light on this???

    can't get it to trim properly. it just spins then crashes.

  • Anonymous Feb 28, 2009

    when i try the trim it still spins out of control

    Three solutions for you: 1- The little screw that tightens the upper set of plastic blades to the metal rod is loose. 2- The internal white gear that makes the big bottom black gear to spin is pushed too high, lower it using a small screwdriver. 3- The internal small white gear that spins the top black gear is too low, push it up with a screwdriver. Took me a full night to figure it out, now it flys perfect again.

  • mohammad ghnaim Jul 25, 2012

    There are three possible problems. 1- The top screw that tightens the blades to the shaft is loose. 2- The internal small white gear on the rear end of the heli is too high, push it down with a screw driver so that it is in good contact with the lower black gear. 3- The internal white small gear at the front of the heli is too low. Push it upwards fully so that it is in good contact with the upper black gear. Had the same problem now it flies perfect again. Controls are junk though :S

    I had the same problem. There is a small set screw to tighten the top rotors to the shaft. I tightened that screw and copter then flew normally. This screw must be tightened periodically.

After 3 weeks of perfect flight behavior, my S107 started rocking or pitching back and forth after a crash. The next time I flew it, it was worse, doing a circular "going down the drain" motion....


Sometimes "toilet bowl effect" or TBE can be caused by a crash.
Try this: Gently, but firmly, press (or pull?) the drive shaft down towards the body, where it comes out of the 'copter, and where it comes out of the bottom rotor and attaches to the top rotor. Also, check for any thing wrapped around the shaft. Even a single long hair or thin thread can wrap dozens of times around the shaft and impede its functionality. Balance bar blade strikes are fairly normal in crashes or out of control flying (i.e. heavy throttle trying to pull out of a drop) and not to be very concerned with, they will decrease as you become an even better pilot.
You say "now, after liftoff it just banks sharply and crashes" does it spin? Or maintain heading and just bank? TBE will often get worse, but can usually be fixed.

Charging/Battery care?
Fly. As soon as you can't keep altitude, land and turn helicopter power off. Do not drain battery fully, ever. Cool for 10 mins. Charge until light on USB charger doesn't get brighter when you unplug heli. Cool for 10 mins again. Rinse and repeat.

Please let me know if none of these solves your issue, and I'll consult my repair notes and pick a few brains, we'll figure this one out for ya!

My syma s032 now won't hover consistently but moves up and down slowly of its own accord. I can compensate by continually moving the joystick. I did have a couple of crashes though they were...


Could possibly be weak remote batteries?
Also, the s032 has an incremental throttle (you should feel very light "clicks" when moving left joystick {throttle} up or down) that can sometimes make steady hovering a challenge. Syma helicopters are fairly durable, but crashes can make them kind of shaky. Be sure to quickly throttle down fully when you are about to have any kind of blade strike or crash. If you crashed outdoors, check to make sure no blades of grass or other foreign items are in near the gears, and check the shaft for anything wrapped around it that might be slowing one or both main rotors. (even a stray long hair can muck things up) Is it exhibiting any other symptoms?
Still getting similar flight time?

Hope this helps, let me know.

One rotor spins faster than other, so chopter flies only forward


Hi,
We are a family that bought one of your helicopters. We immediately had a problem, the top rotor stopped spinning after a crash. We found out that when the helicopter crashed I wasn't paying attention(I am 10 years old)and I was still pushing the throttle while it was on the top rotor. Big mistake,when I tried again it Didn't lift off the ground. We then put crazy glue in between the top rotor and the shaft and tried it again. It worked! Both rotors spun! Good luck!

I have a Syma s032 that had its motors brushes distroyed in few flights. How to avoid premature wear? Is there another kind of motor that can be used on it? Thanks


You need to quickly throttle (left joystick) all the way down whenever you're about to crash or blade strike. Both motors have clutch to spin freely when in neutral. They will bounce off of anything if they can, i.e. if your hand isn't still pegging the throttle. But, if the blade (or blades) hit something that stops them while throttle is still being applied, one of three things will happen.
1) Blade will stop abruptly, putting grossly abnormal strain on the motor and those tiny little brushes inside. Motor may burn out. Every fraction of a second that throttle is being applied while blades cannot move, irreparable damage is almost certainly being done to the motor(s).
2) Blade(s) will break, maybe taking gears or shaft along for the ride.
3) or sometimes nothing seems to have happened, bird clunks to ground, you right it and continue flying.

however, if you throttle fully down, the motors engage clutches automatically and are effectively in neutral, spinning freely allowing the blades to bounce harmlessly off of whatever.

Throttle down when accident nears, and your motors will last for ages.

Hope this helps,

I crashed my Apache onto a table and when I try to fly it, It keeps spinning out of control. To my knowledge I don't see anything broken. It spins to the right. Please help! thanks!!!


It sounds like your tail rotor is acting up or missing. It keeps your Helicopter from flying in circles.

Heli wont go up very much and turns to the left


If thi is a Reflex with two opposing rotors and two directional fans then use the "trim wheel" on the top of the rotor assembly to counteract the spin. If you crashed it often enough the shaft for the top rotor may have come loose. I'm not sure how this actually works with the trim wheel but mine crashed a bit and the shaft came out. I re-inserted it and it worked OK for a while but eventually the gear inside stoppped grabbing the shaft and the top rotor would not spin. I took it apart and tried gluing the gear to the shaft and that got the rotor to spin at the same rate as the lower rotor but I could not trim to get rid of the spin on the body. I would advise not buying the Reflex becuse it does not hold up very well. I went out and purchased a Sharpshooter which is easier to fly and seems more durable

Lama v3 spins counter clockwise with no lift off


WOW! I have experienced the same spinning action . . all new parts etc. I have repaired 6 Coco's but this one has ate my lunch . . . when you power up it spins to the left . . . the more throttle the faster it spins . . have changed the 4 and 1 also and adjusted . . . over and over . . . does the 4 in 1 control the rudder action?

Havoc heli flight problems


Make sure the blades and rotors are free of debris. I had the same problem then noticed hair had gotten wrapped around the blades. Once you remove the hair or thread or string or whatever it should fly fine
