SOURCE: my helix 360 wobble back

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.

Stunt copter won't sync

I presume you have lights & sound on the controller when you turn it on - fourteen quick beeps and then a different toned fifteenth beep. The screen lights (blue). Insert the battery (lettering facing up toward the helo fuselage unitl it's seated all the way - an LED inside the fuselage, visible from behind, quick flashes and then begins a slower blinking.

Once the helo battery is inserted, turn on the controller, which starts the aforementioned beeping. On the last controller beep the helo's LED will stay lighted, indicating the helo & controller are synched.

I had a problem making sure the battery was inserted all the way into the helicopter. You'll know it's inserted properly when the LED inside the helo flashes.

First time flight

Check to see if the antennas are in tightly and making contact. Check the batteries in the helo that are responsible for radio signal, not the ones for rotor power!

The brookstone stunt copter and remote donot sync

It would not sync. solution was to assume poor technical writing. step zero. turn the controller off. step one. plug in the battery to the copter. step two. QUICKLY turn the controller on. if you miss this small window of time, it is going to fail. The copter light blinks fast during this period, and if it slows the blink rate, then you have waited too long.

Controller is having trouble syncing.

IT should not.

First Press the circle on XBOX 360 unit. once you see the 4 yellow rings on XBOX flashing then press the circle at back of the controller.

Hope this helps :)

Check the flight controls. Does the elevator works? if it does. then problem is on thrust. check the propeller speed, does it have enough power? Don't forget to check on the powerplant (battery or engine). But judging from your story, it is the flight control problem. cheers.

M600I STUCK IN FLIGHT MODE AND I have hardly any power. In flight mode the batter will not charge.

Do you get the option to select Phone or Flight modes when you power the device on?
If not, you might want to try using the scroll wheel to do the following:
1. Open the Main Menu. (Scroll to it & then push the scroll wheel in to select.)
2. Open Control Panel, then Device, then Flight mode. ("Prompt me with the Phone on or Flight mode choice..." is displayed.)
3. If the checkbox is unmarked, select it.
4. Save.
5. Power off and then on. The choice should enable you to activate Phone mode.

I hope this helps.
