My heli wont hover, takes a large spiral downward, always to left
It will hover for 2 seconds, then take a downward left spiral until it crashes... No combo of throttle or turning can make it do anything else. This has happened to 3 different heli's of mine (over time) but i'm just curious if this is their way of going to that special heli place in the sky, or if it can be fixed. I've tried weights on the opposite side... no avail.

Throttle slowly push on, until you fly the plane slowly so far (oneself fumble balance hovering position. But the movement wants slow, after all, the air force and reaction force have a reaction time)
Trimming is your plane total 360 degree turn the regulation has two screw rotation speed, let autobiography speed equal, also will not autobiography, how to adjust to the half empty when hovering in the opposite direction to the plane of the autobiography twist
The direction of the plane is you another joystick control and control is go around and control is to adjust the direction
If I understand what you're describing, the heli will fly properly at the start of each flight then becomes non-responsive and crashes. When you begin again, the same thing happens.
If that's correct, then it sounds to me like the heli is flying out of range of the transmitter. Check the batteries in the transmitter. If the batteries are ok, then check the distance to be sure you're staying within range. If you are within range, are you remembering to turn on the transmitter before connecting the heli battery? Did you properly bind the heli to the transmitter? Any other flyers in the area that could be causing interference? Power lines nearby?
Another thing, if it does fly out of range, and if your heli is properly trimmed, it should stop and hover. If it's not doing that, then check that your controls are in the proper position before connecting the battery.
r u charging from the controller? if so put luthium aa batterys in controller the ones you have in there now may not be giving a full charge, you r turning the controller on when charging heli right? wait for the chareer light to turn back to green from red will tell u charge is done. u must have a computer 2 have posted this so charge ur heli from computer wait 4 it 2 light up red (the usb plug) b sure heli is off when charging the little swith should b forward toward nose of heli if it still wont lift off after a good charge b sure the top part of the blades are tight on shaft, its the two screws just under the top blades 1 of the 2 must b tight on the shaft or it wont get enough power if it is slipping, if it still wont lift off u may have a bad li po battery never run it way down!! always stop flying when u c the heli start to not have enough power to hover, always stop and let batt cool dn then charge, then after charge try 2 wait 4 a little bit b 4 flying 2 let batt cool from charging, i know it is very hard 2 wait, hoppfully u have not fryed the battery if u still cant get it e mail me and i will help u get up and flying good luck the s 107 is my main bird i work on them 4 friends all the time if i had it 2 look @ u would b fly n n 5 mintues my e mail is email@example.com
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 upper shaft 'T' head has a broken pin in it (the part that holds the blades. You can flip the heli upside down and slightly rotate the blade housing back and forth and IT SHOULDN'T do that. Another way to instantly identify it is dislocate the rotor head links and the upper blade housing should instantly separate) It's made of plastic.
Anyway, It's also called the "T.B.E." Toilet Bowl Effect. It's not 'really' what's taking place, it's move of a cyclic issue but the effect looks like it's swirling in a toilet bowl... You need to replace the inner shaft basically on the upper rotor. They cost anywhere from $4-7.00 bucks. It took me about 2 days of researching and purchasing another one to finally figure it out. There was another website that says the balance bar is it or the gyro has gone bad; this simply isn't true.
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.
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! :-)
