Issue: Heli spins to the Left (counterclockwise) uncontrollably.
Problem: Tail rotor not turning fast enough, Dragging.
Background: My son's Heli Cage also started spinning to the left after he had flown it a couple 3 times. The trim and direction stick could not compensate. One time, the tail rotor came off during a crash. It was put back on and ran fine a couple more times until the dreaded left spin. I began to troubleshoot the issue. I checked for damage, hair and whatever else on the shaft. There was no obvious signs. When I pulled the tail rotor off, I noticed that it came off very easily. I put a new one on it and problem solved.
Diagnosis: the tail rotor shaft was spinning inside the rotor. This prevented the tail rotor from turning the correct speed.
Corrective Measures: replace rotor with new one. Avoid hitting the rotor while it is spinning...good luck! :-)

The cause of this issue is hair or something preventing the tail rotor to spin properly.. i had this issue and checked mine over very good, noticed the hair in tail rotor, and then took a needle to fish IT ALL out.. if u dont get it all.. it wont trim properly cause it cant spin fast enough

How to correct trimming problems did what the insteuctions said and keep having the same spinning counterclockwise problem


Just bought the air hogs helicopter with the crane. Had the aircraft constantly spinning clockwise, no matter how much I turned the trim control counter clockwise the aircraft still rotated. I then turned the trim control in the opposite direction until I noticed the aircraft had stopped spinning, and used the rudder control to fine tune forward flight. So, get the aircraft to hover and turn the trim button in the opposite direction until you see that the aircraft spinning slows right down. If you continue to turn the trim control in the same direction the aircraft will increase its spin, so just dial back the trim.

My helicopter has no lift even when fully chargered. The props are spinning but it just stays on the ground.


i got a new model havoc heli and the trim buttons did not help at all... in the end I took a motor/prop off of an air hog styrofoam plane I had that was identical to the havoc heli tail rotor and swapped em out.. Problem solved... there was some sort of error with the tail rotor

Air hog havoc goes up and down just fine, no steering control


The steering control only makes the copter rotate.

But if the heli is properly balanced a right turn should get you some forward motion. A left turn should just make it spin back to the left.

Adding weight to the front of the copter will give it continuous forward motion. Then you will lose the ability to hover.

If you visit the Air Hogs website (www.airhogs.com), select "need help" and then Havoc Heli, then crash course, the video will show you how it works.

I also find that climbing makes the heli spin left and descending makes it spin right. So full right for initial startup, then a little right when climbing, and a little left when descending helps to smooth things out.

Keep in mind that this is a very small and cheap helicopter. It took me a while to get used to flying in circles to the right but with practice I have been able to get it to go somewhat where I want it to. I can take off and land from the coffee table without crashing.

Spins out of control wont trim out


Have you tried checking the back tail? It comes down right under the rotor. If it is ripped, DONT TAPE IT! Taping will just ruin the weight balance and ruin it. If it is ripped, return it and exchange it, dont try and fix it.

My Havoc Heli is really hard to control and I need help.


You have to keep tapping the right trim button. Keep tapping it until it stops spinning. If the spinning stops and it just turns, Use the the left right moving analog un til it flies straight.

Problem with the back rotor.


make sure there is no debris such as hair thread or string caught in the back rotor. this will cause it to lock up. Remove it and try fiddling with the trimmer button to help it stop spinning the helicopter

Havoc heli flight problems


Make sure the blades and rotors are free of debris. I had the same problem then noticed hair had gotten wrapped around the blades. Once you remove the hair or thread or string or whatever it should fly fine
