SOURCE: my rc helicopter can not fly it spin in floor

Hi
This type of helicopter uses a fixed pitch blade. Have you recently replaced one or all the blades? If the blades are correctly positioned then once the motor comes to speed, the pitch of the blade creates enough lift to overcome the force of gravity. The problem you're having can only be that the motor is not coming to speed or the blades have been replaced but the pitch is now at the wrong angle.

SOURCE: is there anywhere to order replacement parts for

Hi odonnellsara,

What you need to do is to use your email account to contact Support@iwave.com and give them a description of your problem.

They are probably going to have you go to http://www.iwaveaudio.com/support.asp and fill out an RMA request which is just your address and the like.

I went through this and my RMA request was denied because I did not have a reciept to attach to the form as I had recieved the Copter as a gift.

I sent them another email saying that I just wanted a parts manual to order from but have not heard back from them.

Have Heart! it is my thought that if you do have a reciept, they may give you an address to send the machine to for repair or possibly send you a replacement. IMO, the helicopter is a very good "transition" or "Stepping stone". My background was with the small indoor models so I was prepared to address issues such as trim adjustment and had good luck with my copter right out of the box. This model is much faster and more sensitive and will be a great trainer for my first three or four channel model.

SOURCE: My helicopter won't take off,

This issue is the "Drive Gear Unit" It is the small gear just above the motors which is attached to the very large gear. You will have seen several posts indicating that sometimes this gear shifts and does not engage the larger gear. In my case I looked and say that it was indeed trying to engage the larger gear, however the gear is stripped (the teeth are nearly gone). The sound that you are hearing is the sound of the gear slipping against the Bigger gear. I have a UJ365 which is a newer model. To my disappointment I cannot find a "Drive Gear Unit" anywhere on line. The copter will not function without it. This issue is that it takes the lift of both rotors to lift the copter into the air. There are two motors (one for each rotor) and each motor has one of these drive gear units. Each of these attach to the larger gears which turn the rotors. The rotors each turn in the opposite direction. This is what keeps the copter from continually turning in one direction. When one of the "main Gear Units" becomes damaged it seems to have three noticeable effects. (1) There is a noise that is the gear grinding against the bigger gear. (2) Because many of the teeth are stripped the drive gear engages the bigger bear only some of the time, this causes the rotor to turn slower and in-turn causes there not to be enough lift from the rotors to lift the copter. And finally (3), someone noted that copter wants to spin in one direction. Understanding the above, you can now understand that if one of the rotors is not reaching its full potential to turn, it is also not reaching its full potential to counter act the other fully functioning rotor. Thus the fully functioning rotor is forcing the copter to spin in its direction and the malfunctioning rotor is not spinning fast enough to stop the spin.

So this is the answer to your questions, hopefully on the older models there will be parts available for you to replace it. The copter cannot work until the part is replaced.

Lower rotor does not turn


There should be a very small screw to tighten it up. Be careful, these things seem to be MADE to break!

Bought Nano Hercules RC Helicopter. Flew it once and now lower rotor won't turn. Tried to call World Tech


I, too, have the Nano RC heli. Mine spins and spins faster if I try and take off.
Yours is a relatively easy fix. There are SCREWS under the rotor blades on the bottom. Tighten those.

I recently purchased a Fast Lane Hawk 4 rc helicopter. After a few small "crashes", it shakes and doesnt fly well. Does the top rotor need replacing, and if so, can I get the parts for it?

Top blade wont spin help.


the top blade should not spin unless the main rotors are turning as this gives the copter forward and sideways movment it should be secured with a small grub screw to the main shaft

Crashed hard and now the bottom rotor is not spinning as fast as the other two. What should I do?


loosen the body screws. lift the right side front so you can see the engine gears, The little gear has slipped on the shaft and is not making contact with the big gear (white plastic gears). Slide the little gear down the shaft so it meshes with the bigger gear. Close the body back up (don't tighten screws yet). Turn the Heli on and make sure all is well (while holding the body closed). Tighten screws...Enjoy...
