Tip #1: Wait at least 15-20 minutes after you drain a battery to charge it.
This allows the battery to cool down before each charge cycle. I would make sure the battery is cool to the touch before charging it again, but 15 minutes should be alright.

Pointer #1: If the battery is hot after use, then it is a good sign that your battery is getting old.
Anything warmer than about 140 degrees is dangerous; if your battery is this warm after flying, it's time to replace it. I wouldn't use it anymore so it doesn't explode. This is a good indication that in the near future you should look to getting a new one. I would recommend a higher quality / mAh battery (keep the same voltage, though) if the battery running out is a stock battery.

Tip # 2: Wait at least 15 minutes after charging a battery to use it.
Once again, this is to let the battery's chemical processes have a break.

Pointer #2: Battery terms to understand when buying a RC battery.
mAh: Milli Ampere Hour. This is basically the electric charge transferred by a current of one milliampere for one hour. I'm no electrical genius, but the higher the mAh, the longer a battery will last per charge. This is the one part of a battery that you can change without damaging the heli.
Volt: The electrical pressure. Basically this determines how much power can flow to the motor. For lipo batteries the voltage comes in multiples of 3.7 volts, or 3.7 volts per cell.
Cell: An independent 3.7 volt battery.
If you would like a little more in-depth explanation, I found this howstuffworks article helpful.
Litium-Ion (Li-Ion): a type of battery that has a rigid cell structure and shape. It is safer than a lipo battery, but not as efficient.
Lithium-Polymer (Lipo): a type of battery with a flexible cell structure and shape. Lipos can catch fire and explode if mistreated or dropped on a hard surface. BE CAREFUL! Although more dangerous, they are more efficient than li-ion batteries and can come in practically any shape with the same cell count.
Look below to see how the li-ion (on the right) has two defined cylindrical shapes in the package, whereas the lipo to the left is just a rectangle with no visible curvature or cells.

### Remote will not control the helicopter

did you charge the helicopter.... you need to put the charging cable in to the copter. and charge up can use a usb power plug. when charged the light on the usb cable should light up or flash. also if you take the plastic cover off the front there is a battery in there and a board check to see what number its set on. it takes around 5 seconds for the remote to recognise the unit.

### Where doI find the slot to recharge my helicopter

with most rc helicopters you have to disconnect the receiver unit from its battery and connect the charging lead to the battery lead the charger should have 2 leads 1 for the transmitter & 1 for the receiver

### I bought rc helicopter of alloy king and i dont know how to make it start.

Insert the batteries into the battery slots in both the controller and the helicopter.now you will be able to control the rc helicopter whenever you want by just switching on the remote control for the device.

### My helicopter flew for a few seconds and then feel to the ground. It seems as if the controller does not work with the helicopter

Check your battery pack to see if the controller lost power or the battery pack in the RC ARF to ensure that, the copter can receive.

### My Yiboo Micro Blade Rc copter won't charge. I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting the batteries, but every time I plug it in the charging light doesn't come on and it goes into transmitting mode....

Well my K11 helicopter that I bought from Paddys Markets Sydney Australia last week for \$45 gave up after three flights. I suspect the battery is either dead or not charging or a burnt out wire. I suspect your micro RC helicopter has a similar issue. I smashed open my charger with a dumbell weight to see if the wiring inside it was ok. All looks good, but when it is plugged in, it does not even produce heat, which chargers always do to a certain amount. I also dismantled helicopter and took out battery. For \$45 it is not worth me buying a voltmeter, another charger (which I cannot find online) and my manufacturer has a dodgy website as well! I recommend keeping your toy for parts and maybe getting another one?
