yes, this little heli does do that. it's likely due to balance and the the transmitter not remembering your trim settings after power off, but it's made that way. You have to steer it up, adjust the trim, land it.. and then it should rise better. You can try adding weight to the other side with a piece of clay to see if it solves the problem. If so, you can add metal or electrical tape to the landing gear on one side. ~VLAD~

SOURCE: air hog helix 360...flybar is

They have little pieces that push on a ring to move it around. Open the heli and check that they are all inside of the ring. ~VLAD~

It's common for this copter to lift and drift to the left. Likely caused by weight, so you can add additional weight to the opposite sides landing gear, but ultimately more weight isn't better. Sadly there is no control for this drift, you have to compensate manually to keep it perfect. ~VLAD~

SOURCE: My air hogs helix 360 is bobbing front and back

No this wobble is not caused by the tail motor. i have had 3 that have all done the same thing. The fix is simple. The tail would cause it to go back and forth like it is turning back and forth with rudder. When he says bobbing he is talking about a oval shaped motion that the heli does while hovering. looks like its rocking front to back. tail wag is different and has to do with gyro over sensitivity. To fix: Look at the flybar and check for even flybar paddles (if looking down the flybar make sure one is not angled differently than the other) you can twist them a little to manipulate them. #2 the small extensions connecting the flybar to the links may be bent up or down. Again, looking down the flybar make sure they are pretty level with one another (you can slightly bend them back but be gentle. #3 There is a pin connecting the flybar to the head that goes through. What happens is, after a few bang into things this can start to move out just a fraction of a mm. You will notice that the flybar can move back and forth like it should very easily but there is also a little play rocking it the other way that it is not supposed to go. this amount will be very small but plenty to adversely affect the heli. take a pair of needle nose pliers and carefulle push that pin in just a touch until the flybar tightens enough to stop the movement. Be sure its not too tight so it takes away from the easy movement the flybar is supposed to have. I 100% promise its not the tail motor.

I have the Air Hogs Helix X4 Stunt Quad Copter and it flys to one side sometimes. One of the propellers will periodically stop. When I turn the throttle off that same propeller stops spinning earlier then...


I have the same problem, two props spins freely when I spin it by hand in switched OFF position. and in ON position, when I turn down the left control to zero they continue to spin while other propellor stops. I know this info is not a solution but if there was a "how to replace motor or propellor" site. maybe I'd find a clue to why the props drag and get it to spin freely like it suppose to be. I could probably put a video together on that topic but if there is already one out there let us know.

I dont know what it means when i am flying my helix and the power light on the control starts blinking? can somebody help me?


Weak batteries in the transmitter, or you're losing communication with the helicopters receiver. Check the IR receiver under the heli. it may be pushed in or to one side. ~VLAD~

Probably need a gentle bend back to its original position. Can you look at a friends or a shop one to see exactly what it should look like before a crash? Crashes usually bend something. Good luck.

How to fix top propeller of the helix 360. It keeps flying to the right


The top is a balance bar. Assuming it's still intact and the metal pieces are there, you can round the edges with a file and cover the tips with a small piece of clear tape to give it more of an aerodynamic shape. The factory "square" shape actually makes the heli move around slower. This will also give you more movement in all directions... more response. ~VLAD~

Listing to one side making it go backward and no lift


Battery needs replacement, or the motors have excessive wear. The leaning/drifting to one side is common on this heli.
