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.

take it to a different large chain store like the W world... and exchange it for a different one. Of course the store has to sell it there before you can exchange it. worst comes to worst, I always have good luck calling the company and complaining. I have gotten free vouchers for new items that way.

My bottom blades on my Falcon X Helicopter don't turn. I've looked and it seems the spinning bit connected to the engine (green coloured) is sitting right below the wheel connected to the blades....


Hi,
I think the problem is the green pinion drive gear, either it has already crack on the sides that's why it moves to another position.
You could adjust the green gear by pushing it where the big gear( wheel ) turns. There is a screw at the side of the propeller where you could tighten it to the point it can have a contact with the green gear.
You could buy that green gear in the internet.You don't have to disassemble the whole thing.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

Are you missing any parts? make sure its charged, i know if you are missing a stabilizer it wont go up the stabilizer is what holds the two propellers together and when the helicopter takes a hard impact it usually comes off so check for that hoped this helped

Heli will not climb above ground effect, battery tests ok, axles in balance no vibration, just will not climb


I also have this kind of problem with my apache. The upper propeller must spin faster thatn the lower propeller if not the heli would just spin on its tail although maximum power is achieved. The solution is to check the connection of the gears and the axle of the upper propeller which is located at the bottom of the helicopter. remove first the battery pack to see clearly the connection. try to turn the upper propeller a few turns and see if the axle, gear and the metal connector is sliding. A fixed my heli buy putting a permanent glue on the axle, connector to the gear and whalla. it does not slide. Most problems of this model is the gear of the upper propeller, often times loosened specially during crushes. This will a lot help you as your heli would have power on the upper propeller for lift off. Happy flying.

Heli max hicro helicopter just keeps spinning in circles


Spinning is caused by one of the main propellers rotating faster than the other. If both propellers are secured tightly to their drive shafts, the spin control knob on the remote control can be used to stop the spin. However, if one prop is slipping with respect to the other, the spin control knob will not fix the problem.
I've found that the set screws holding the propellers to the drive shafts tend to loosen after a while. If one prop is a bit loose and the other is tight, the relative slippage will cause the helicopter to spin.
To check, turn off helicopter power and manually rotate each propeller separately, watching the nylon gears in the body. If the propeller is moving and its drive shaft gear isn't, the propeller is slipping because its set screws are not applying enough pressure on the propeller's drive shaft.
Carefully tighten the set screw and the problem should be fixed. DON'T OVERTIGHTEN, or the plastic threads for the set screw will be stripped and the propeller assembly will be ruined.
