Usually synching requires one device started before the other, meaning that you may want to power on the transmitter, then turn on the heli and try the heli first, then the transmitter second if that doesn't work. Otherwise there's usually a small button that is pressed to get the two devices talking to each other.
that means only one of two things the charger is no good, or your connection from the battery is broken,,in side on of the wires,,get them both changed but you should try a new battery first , becasue if it's they charger at least you will have a back up battery
The batteries on the Helicopter need to be fully charged to take off.
And important: to recharge the helicopter fully it needs really good base unit batteries.
I find all this a waste so - I used a wall power supply to supply suitable power to the charging bases of these helicopters give more consistant results than using batteries.. Just make sure you are using a 9V DC wall transformer (6 1.5v batteries = 9v) and that the polarity is correct.
Hi, I have similar problem with my LS-208 heli. Helicopter leds are blinking red/green, front white led is on, and tail leds are blinking too. Remote controller red led is on as should be but helicopter doesn't respond to controller at all. I followed instructions above with no success. Anyone has a suggestion? Regards, Yaron.
You mention the controller, new batteries are good for the controller, but you need to have your heli batteries to be charging correctly. If you get new heli batteries, then Check your charger, it is probably not putting out the right voltage. e
Normal start-up would be: Turn helicopter on. Flashing light in nose should come on, as well as another blinking light (sometimes towards the rear, sometimes in the "cockpit" area) the helicopter MUST then be placed on a level stable surface until the 'other' light stops blinking, usually a couple/few seconds. This is the gyroscopes synching up and determining the "level" head orientation they will be maintaining. Then power the controller on. Making sure you're not covering the front of the controller with your hands, (the IR signals come out the front like a TV remote) push the throttle control (left joystick) up until the blades move. This what the horribly translated instructions mean by setting the helicopter and controller together. Don't charge with the controller. It kills your controller's batteries, (which will last nearly forever if you don't use them as your heli's charger) and seems to make the birds act weird. Use the USB charger and a fully powered USB port (back of your desktop, not the front) and go by the light on the charger not an arbitrary time. Plug in charger NOT connected to heli. Look at the light. That is what the light will look like when unit is fully charged. Make sure heli is off. Plug into charger. Charge until light is fully on. If you unplug heli and the light gets brighter, it's not charged fully. A weak USB port (on a laptop or the front side data port on most desktops) may take several hours to achieve full charge. Always cool 10 mins after charging AND 10 mins after flying. Never drain fully, it will kill the Li/Po battery. Land and power off as soon as you can't maintain altitude. If it is really charged, and you turn it on and nothing happens... no lights nothing. Then it's defective/toast. Return for refund. These SYMA helis are awesome, and HANDS DOWN the best on the market... but they can be picky/tricky on how they are treated.
The batteries have degraded. Even if you bought the helo brand new, it might have been sitting on the shelf for quite some time since it was manufacturers and Ni-Cad and Li-Po batteries have limited shelf life.
You can always replace the batteries. The stock batteries in the Brookstone Cloud Force uControl RC heli are 3.7V 150mAh, but I I suggest you seach for and buy Syma S107 / S107G Upgrade 3.7V Lithium Polymer 240mAh batteries. I picked one up for my Cloud Force and because it's slightly bigger than stock, you'll need to tape it under the body between the skids, but some people have also managed fit it between the frame where the stock battery rests. Some generic replacement instructions: http://www.micro-helicopters.net/syma-s107-battery-replacement. The 240mAh battery works perfectly and runs the chopper longer than the stock one did brand new. Aside from a year's heavy use reducing this thing's usable run-time to 30 seconds or so, this has been a great micro-heli.
1.Take out charging wires.
2.turn off your heli and insert charging socket into your heli's socket.
3.the charging green light will light up while charging.
4.charging complete, the green light will turn off.
5.pull out the wires and you are ready to fly. Let the heli's battery cool down for approx. 15 minutes before charging.
