This is a battery fault, unfortunately pretty common. How old is this helicopter? It may still be under warranty.

Let me know, there is not really much of anything you can do on your end... you are doing everything correctly for sure.

SOURCE: Purchased Helicopter MINI AIR WOLF

My wife bought one of thsoe for me for my birthday. I charged it for an hour - turn off the helicopter power switch and plug in the charge plug on the control - the control must be on. anyway the thing doesn't have enough lift to get off the ground. It just skitters along the ground. Also the tail rotor doesn;t do anything. The parts list identifies a tail motor so it should do something. Going to return it to the mall. That's a hassle! I would try to fix the tail motor, but if the thing can'e even get off the ground what's the point? Any info send it to rsockey at yahoo dot com.

Hello

I have the exact same model you are having problems with. Just a few questions to clarify:

Does the red light flicker in on the circuit?
Also, is the remote turned on?

Let me know about the above described. I will come back top you as soon as possible.

Kind regards

How do I charge my Tech Toyz Aeroblade tactical wireless indoor helicopter? No manual.


The helicopter charges off of the batteries in the controller as follows:
  • Connect the helicopter to the controller as shown in the picture. Make sure there are good batteries in the controller.
  • Turn the helicopter off.
  • Turn the controller on. The red "power" light and the green "charge" light on the controller should come on.
  • When the green light turns off, the helicopter is done charging.

On my gyro m1 it turn on and the remote to but i cant get it to spin the blade it make a buzz sound and stop i need to fly


You ever find a fix for this problem?
I've got one too and I just noticed that the "green" charging light isn't coming on when it's plugged in to charge. I got the copter "used" and it apparently had a full charge when I got it home, but after using it and putting it on the charger over night, nothing. Reading the manual a little closer this morning, I noticed the "green" light is the "charging circuit: on" indicator. It's not coming on at all. (No, there are no switches etc.)
Here's what I'm going to do.
(Since we're dealing with Li-ion batteries, extreme care must be taken. Possible fire hazard. Follow these steps at your own risk. I am not responsible for any personal injury, or damage to your helicopter.)
THAT SAID! :)
The unit uses 3 wires to supply power coming from the charger.
One is for power (+), one is ground (-), and the other would be for the charging circuit (+).
Now, the reason for the above warning is because with any charging system, there runs the risk of fire, explosion, or acid leakage when improper charging techniques are applied. Li-ion batteries more susceptible to this type of damage than traditional Ni-Cad batteries, but that doesn't mean you can't recharge them yourself if you're careful. (Be warned, you may decrease the life of your batteries this way, but then again, what does it matter if you can't fly the darn thing anyway right?)
Okay. The charger's transformer (the part that goes into the wall) states that it pushes 5.6v @ 80mA into the batteries when plugged in. (Read: "Output" on the transformer.)
Since there is no additional output voltage listed, we can assume that this is the maximum listed amount of voltage and amperage that any one part of the system can handle at a given time.
Besides, the lower and slower you charge, the safer and better charge you'll get.
If you have a multi-meter handy you can do a voltage check on the wires to verify that your current transformer is putting out the correct voltage, but my guess is that like mine, it is not. (Most likely on the "Grey" colored lead.) Then check the voltages at the leads from the helicopter. (This tells you how much battery charge you have.)
That said, you have a couple options.
1. Use the transformer you have.
2. Find and use another.
Now we have to do something a little drastic here first. Unless you have a connector that fits the helicopter's connector (Check an old computer for one) you are going to have to take that little charging box apart and remove the one that's in there.
I don't suggest trying to splice directly into the wires of the helicopter as there is nothing wrong from the connector back to the helicopter. (If it ain't broke, don't fix it.)
Once you have this piece, follow the suggestions below.
1A. Using the one you have. - Since we know the "Red" wire and "Black" wires on your unit work, (indicated by the Red light you mentioned) you could simply splice the third "Grey" and the "Red" wires together PRIOR to the connector leading to the helicopter. This would divert power from the "Red" (power) circuit to the "Grey" (charging circuit) thus supplying power to the charging circuit. Now this will bypass the part of the circuit board that stabilizes the current in such a way that is safe for Li-ion batteries, but then again, most of these fixes are going to do this anyway.
2.A Find and use a different transformer. - Cell phones typically charge at around 4.3v to 5.6v. The power cords used to charge these devices can be found just about anywhere. USB ports charge at 5.6v as well.
Knowing this, you should be able to find a working transformer easy enough simply laying around the house. (Verify this by reading the "output" of the transformer you wish to use.)
Then, take the Black (-) lead and splice it into the Black lead of the connector (male) that is going to plug into the female connector of the helicopter.
Next, take the positive lead from the transformer and splice it into both of the other leads (Red/Grey) of the same connector.
Check your voltage output of all three connections. You should have positive voltage at both the Red and Grey leads, when the negative is touched.
Take a reading with your meter from the helicopter and write it down.
Assuming that you've done this correctly, find a well ventilated, fire resistant area to charge the helicopter and plug it into the female connector of the helicopter.
Watch the whole thing closely to make sure it doesn't catch fire and leave it alone for a bit.
After about an hour, re-check the voltage from the helicopter. If you notice an increase in the voltage here, you are charging your helicopter's batteries.
Continue charging until you reach the maximum votage of your battery pack. About 6v. (I think this battery pack is most likely a 6v setup.)
Once you have reached full charge, disconnect the charging unit from the helicopter and fly your bird! :) Repeat
Just to let you know. You can (if you don't go much higher) increase the output VOLTAGE of your transformer SLIGHTLY in order to decrease the charging time necessary to recharge your batteries.
There. We're done.
Let me know if this helps at all okay? I'd like to know how it all turns out for you.
Oh! Now that you've got a little info on how your bird works, it may be time to boost your birds power all around! lol But I digress.
Hope this all helps!
Any questions, post them here and I'll get back to you as soon as I read it.

Hi,
I have similar problem with my LS-208 heli.
Helicopter leds are blinking red/green, front white led is on, and tail leds are blinking too.
Remote controller red led is on as should be but helicopter doesn't respond to controller at all.
I followed instructions above with no success.
Anyone has a suggestion?

Brand new out of the box Volitation 9053 wont take a charge. Charger never goes green to indicate full charge. At most I get 5-10 seconds of weak spin and then the red light on the ECS board flashes. ...


  • If this is a brand new item out of the box, if this were my item, I would send it back for an exchange. The charger never turns green because the battery never gets a full charge. Because of that you won't get a 7.4volt reading out of the battery, Either the battery is not taking the charge or the charger is malfunctioning and not charging proper. The lights may work for a bit while the motor won't spin because a light takes far less voltage than turning a motor. Because you don't know if it is the battery or charger and it is new I have to suggest to take it back. The sooner the better. Messing with it will just void the warranty.

Regards, Tony

My sharpshooter and remote both turn on, but the helicopter does not react at all, what should i do?


I had this problem yesterday as well :)

My helicopter charged once worked and flew once for about 5 minutes. Then the helicopter stopped responding to the controller and it wouldn't take a charge. When I connected the remote to the helicopter the CHG light came on solid for about 30 seconds. This means that the controller is waiting to be plugged into the helicopter.

A couple of points to check before you go further:
1) make sure that the helicopter is turned OFF before charging!
2) When charging the red CHG light will blink.
3) When finished charging the red CHG light and the green Power light will blink at the same time.
4) After a certain amount of time both lights will stop blinking to save the batteries.

After taking the helicopter apart this is what I have found:
*The helicopter has a 140mA-H 3.7V Li-Po battery.
*The battery has a little board with 2 tiny computer chips. When the battery is empty these 2 chips will completely disconnect the battery. This prevents damaging the battery and this is why the helicopter stops responding when the battery is empty.
*There are two connections between the battery and the little board - a long connection which wraps one time around the battery and a short connection. My problem was with the short battery connection.

Solution --The little board has a short piece of foil which connects to another short piece of foil on the battery. These two pieces of foil are simply pressed together and then glued. In my case this connection broke. To fix the problem I removed the yellow tape and glue and used a soldering iron to solder the 2 foil pieces together. Make sure that you put tape (any household tape should be OK) back on the battery to prevent any shorts.
