Question about Brookstone Ucontrol Silver Bullet RC Helicopter

1 Answer

Brookstone Silver Bullet. The green light on the unit indicates that the helicopter is taking charge, and stays on about 10 minutes. The problem is that it doesn't turn on when I switch the helico

The batteries in the controller are fresh. Before this problem, the helicopter was having trouble staying on. The blue lights flash, and I would have to wiggle the switch to keep it on. If it's a connection problem I could solder it back, but I would need instructions.

I had the same problem with my night hunter Rc hc . And indeed it was a solder joint. I drew diagrams of my hc and noted the position, color, and size of the screws that I removed. Note that I drew additional diagrams after every layer I removed and I numbered the pages so I knew in what order I did this disassembley. I tracked down the wires and found the problem. I didn't even add solder, rather I just reheated the origional solder and let it cool around the wire. ( I also had the wire held in place via alligator clamp. And I also cut the end off the wire and stripped it to expose a clean portion suitable for solder.

How do you charge the iwave helicopter?


In the controller unit (the controller holds the 6 AA batts) there is a compartment just under the green charge light. Open the compartment by sliding the compartment door down in the direction of the arrow. This will expose a wire with a white plug on the end of it. Insert this plug into a socket found on the underbelly of the helicopter next to the on/off switch. On the controller, turn the switch to the 'on' position. The red and green light on the controller will light, indicating it's charging. After about 15 minutes, the green light will go out, indicating that the helicopter is fully charged.
