Question about Cars & Co Remote Controlled Car

1 Answer

How do you prove a remote control is transmitting?

I have a remote control car that is not working. Both batteries are fully charged and visually does'nt appear to be any damage so I would like to find out if the transmitter is sending a signal.

Take a digital camera (has to have a screen on it) and zoom in on the end of the antennae. if you look REALLY close, you can see tiny radio waves coming from the end. If you dont see any then you will have to go to a store like WAL-MART and get a new remote.

Hi, the issue I am facing is that my remote is not able to connect to the helicopter. Earlier when I used to put the battery the light used to blink, now as soon as I switch on the remote it just does...


Helicopter should be powered off when charging. After fully charged (charging light as bright as it gets) and given 10 minutes to cool after charging, turn on helicopter first and place on level surface, this allows gyroscopes to sync up. Then, after making sure the main rotor control (left joystick) is all the way down, turn on controller, and quickly push left joystick all the way up (just until the blades move) and back down. This will link them. Also, make sure the antenna is still wrapped around the landing strut and not contacting any metal on the craft. And of course, good batteries in the remote, and ALWAYS let helicopter battery cool for 10 minutes after charging AND after flying. Also, NEVER fully drain battery, as soon as you cannot maintain altitude, land and power off. Fully discharging a Li/Po battery will weaken it severely, and sometimes kill it.

Please let me know if this helps, I love Syma helicopters, but they can be tricky sometimes...

Hi, My X107 MINI HELICOPTER does not receive transmit anymore. It was working fine before. It only flys if I hold the remote control right next to the sensor. If I move it away it loses transmit. Both units have full power. How do I solve this problem.

0) Obviously, helicopter will operate best when fully charged... if charging light gets brighter when unplugged from helicopter, then it's not at full charge. Charge fully, then allow battery to cool for 10 minutes. Good batteries in remote also.
1) Power on helicopter.
2) Place on level surface and let gyroscopes sync. There is a red light inside the body (NOT the red/blue flasher in the nose) that will blink when you turn helicopter on, and will keep blinking until craft is level and stable for a few seconds, then will stop blinking.
3) Make sure left joystick is all the way down.
4) Power on remote.
5) Throttle up (left joystick) until blades move and then all the way back down.
This should get you flying. Let me know.

hope this helps,

Did you, by chance mess with the antenna? It's is the wire that came wrapped around one of the landing skids. It must remain like this, and ideally not in contact with too much metal. Also, on my s032 I've noticed that even indoors and at close range, the antenna on the remote should be extended fully. Is the helicopter charged fully?
Charging/Remote linking:
0) Obviously, helicopter will operate best when fully charged... if charging light gets brighter when unplugged from helicopter, then it's not at full charge. Charge fully, then allow battery to cool for 10 minutes. Good batteries in remote also.
1) Power on helicopter.

3) Make sure left joystick is all the way down.
4) Power on remote.
5) Throttle up (left joystick) until blades move and then all the way back down.
As a safety mechanism, remote disables itself if throttle is engaged at all when remote is turned on. Turn remote off, pull left joystick (throttle) all the way down, then try again.
This should get you flying. Let me know.

You're likely doing one of two (or three) things:

Undercharging. Make sure to charge until light on charging unit is fully bright. If the light on the charger gets ANY brighter when you unplug the helicopter, then it's not fully charged. Note that if you are using a usb charger, that most laptop usb ports and front side desktop data ports are not fully powered to the required 5volts DC, and so can take several hours to fully charge the battery.

Over-discharging. Once you cannot maintain altitude, land helicopter and power it off. Draining a Li/Po battery fully, or even close to it, will weaken it's ability to hold a charge, and can ruin it entirely. Not like the old Ni/Cad rechargeable batteries.
Improper care. Batteries should be allowed to cool for 10 minutes after every flight, and 10 minutes after every charge. Like over-discharging, overheating will always weaken, and can destroy your Li/Po battery.

hope this helps let me know

Just got the syma s032 gyro charged it to full and it wont fly for more than 20 seconds


So your only getting 20 seconds of flight time when your charging for a full cycle?

I purchased the Syma Chanook and it had the same problem , If you keep running into this problem using the remote control charger than I suggest to aquire a new charger . One that is a plug in the wall . I really dont like to rely on the usb chargers they just dont work as well. If not you still have a 30 day moneyback warranty and I would make them replace the battery or better yet the whole unit if the second charger doesn't work!

New bright 19.2v nicd battery problem


I have purchased 2 remote controlled toy cars from Costco over the years. These New Bright batteris and charges last only a few charges, and then they go bad. I am disappointed. I will go to Walmart and buy a new battery and see if it works better, if not, i will return to Walmart.
