i have a heli and the tail rotor will spin right but not left .... im having problems with my silverlit nano copter the tail ...
Probably the best way to learn to fly is to find a group of like minded people locally and ask their advice. ... The tail rotor should rotate so that the blades come 'up' towards the front of the heli. ... My helicopter won't stop spinning! ... still flying awesome but now tail vibrate and it issues backward forward. what should i do ?
Helicopters are not easy to fly, they are not naturally stable. New blades do not solve the problem, this can only be achieved by training and very delicate movements of the cyclic pitch control. I recommend to use a larger skid (broader) or some light device that enlarges the skid surface (to avoid tilting and damage). But be sure that a coaxial helicopter is easier to fly than any conventional model with just one main rotor and anti-torque tail rotor.
In general, the main rotor in an R/C helicopter only tips forward and backwards of vertical center. Direction is determined by the tail rotor. If the entire machine is tilting right, even if the rotor doesn't appear to be, check the motor mount, and or gear train of the main rotor in the fuselage. The main rotor shaft in the fuselage should be exactly vertical relative to the helicopter deck and with trim tabs centered. If your model has the two small fans, one on either side of the fuselage, try replacing the propeller on the right one, even if it looks OK and check for lint or hair on motor shafts. Again, this is a general answer from my own experience. Hope it helps.
Check the wiring where you plug in the charger to the helicopter. There is a red wire with quick disconnects. If its loose (the quick disconnect) you get this problem. In my case the helicopter came out of the box with this completely disconnected. It was hard to connect because there wasn't enough slack wire but once we did it the white light on the front of the helicopter came on and we were flying.
I had the same problem. The problem is to do with the little cog in the back of the helicopter that drives the tail rotor. If you reverse the helicopter it creates downward movement but if you fly forward it creates lift. This lift can actually cause the white plastic gear wheel to also lift and it looses contact with the drive cog itself. Undo the two screws to lift off the black casing, prize off the white plastic cog and file the underside down slightly. When you put it back in place it now sits slightly lower and does not lift too high when you fly the helicopter forward. Hope this helps.
I own this heli also. The problem is that the tail rotor does not apply enough push to tilt the heli forward. It is this forward pitch that moves the heli forward. Aside form buying a stronger tail motor, upgrading your battery etc, the only thing you can do id this:
Get a credit card, a pair of scissors and some tape. Cut a couple of strips from the credit card about 2 1/2 - 3 times wider thhan the tail rotor blades and the same length. Now tape the strips to the top of the tail rotor blades. Make sure you don't increase the length.
This will help a little by providing more air push when the tail rotor in engaged. Without some serious modding, this heli will never be great.
I have more fun flying my micro size syma helicopter in the garage then I have flying my volitation. If there is even the slightest breeze, the volitation will float in the direction of the breeze and will not fly against it.
Make sure you're charging fully, until the light on the charger doesn't get ANY brighter when you unplug the helicopter. Also, battery must be allowed to cool 10 minutes after flying AND another 10 minutes after charging. Most crucial is that you must never fully discharge battery. Fully draining a Li/Po even once (especially when it's new) can cripple or ruin your battery. As soon as you are unable to maintain altitude, land copter and power it off. Also, there is a button on the remote, labelled "tail motor speed switch" located near the trim control. With it in the "off" or up position the tail motor is much slower allowing for more precise control. When button is pushed to the down or "on" position, tail motor moves faster giving more tilt, and thereby much more forward/reverse 'thrust'. Verify that tail rotor is moving when right joystick is actuated (and that it reverses when right stick is pulled in opposite direction) and that it isn't loose on it's shaft... this can be tested by verifying tail rotor spin in one direction then reversing joystick... tail rotor should instantly start spinning in the other direction with NO hesitation, if it slows and then starts spinning in other direction or anything like that then it's loose. Turn helicopter upside down then VERY CAREFULLY apply a small drop of super glue where the shaft meets the tail rotor, be very cautious to not get any glue near where the shaft comes out of the motor, and do not turn right side up until glue is fully dry.
The instructions say the helicopter is ready to fly when the led shows red. I found some info online that says to charge the helo for 35 minutes. I've been letting it go 45 mnutes, and have been getting abou6 6 minute flight times. Unfortunately, my helo will no longer fly forward or backward. Does anyone know how to adjust the control for the tail rotor?
