I have the same problem. I have two of these helicopters and just recently brought them out of the closet. On one of them, the bottom rotor spins but the top does not. On the other, it Ian the other way around. It seems like the shaft is not catching the rotors properly, anyone have ideas?

Why won't the top rotor of my phantom rc helicopter spin?

must be not tight enough when attached to the metal shaft connected to motor, metal shaft may be spinning but not the top rotor, find a way to tighten it down on the metal shaft.

Syma s107 hit a dangling string that got tied up instantly and seized the rotors. now lights up but blades don't spin when throttled. What can I do besides replace the helicopter?

I was flying my syma s800g and hit the ceiling fan chain. When I attempted to fly it would spin and fall over. The problem was I broke the two small plastic pins on the top rotor holder. Ordered a new top rotor and flies fine. Then on my s107 I flew into a door and the top rotor had zero spin although the motors worked. In that case the screw that sets the top rotor onto the middle shaft loosened resulting in no lift and also tilted and fell over. This was fixed by securing the set screw properly. So in both instances it was similar effects due to the top rotors not spinning in sync with lower blades.

I was using my Craftsman 12 Gal 5.0 160 HP Wet/Dry Vac, dry vacuuming, and it just stopped working. I did check the receptacles but that was not the issue.

Good day!

Try to see the motor and the carbon brush that connected to it..

This are the step on how to open or remove the cover of the vacuum to reveal the motor.
  1. Take off the top panel.
  2. Loosening all screws that you will see inside that top panel.
  3. After that, the top cover of the vacuum release and the image of the motor reveal.
  4. Now try to look at the motor and remove it to the unit by unscrewing it.
  5. Next, try to spin it manually using your 2 fingers and hold the plate then spin it.If the plate is hard to spin,the motor is need to re-align.
  6. To re-align the motor you have to loosen the screws at the 4 corners then release the rotor then back again.
  7. After that,clean the bushing of motor and the rotor and apply the motor oil for lubrication.Then re-install it and tighten the screws on the 4 corners while you re-align the rotor.
  8. Use a rubber mallet to align the rotor,hit the body of the motor while you tighten the 4 corners screws.
  9. After that spin the plate again to test the alignment,if the plate spin it smoothly.the alignment is OK.
  10. After that you have to test the resistance of the motor to make sure that the carbon brush is contact to the armature of the rotor.Use a multimeter (range in ohms) then point the test probe directly to the carbon brush wire.It should have not more than 25 ohms depends on the horse power of the motor.
  11. When the reading is open the contact of the carbon brush is reaching the armature of the rotor.Replace the carbon brush.
If you accomplish all of the steps above and the you found a defective parts.Test the vacuum by powering it ON.

Thank you very much and wish you luck.

The tail rotor on my Syma s107 metal series helicopter won't spin. the battery is fully charged. the top rotor still spins. i don't know what to do

It seems tail motor is not working.
S107 knows to come with faulty tail motor.

If you open pilot cabin, you should see blue and red (or green and red) wire. See if they are welded on the motherboard.
If they are, then tail rotor is not working properly.

Stealth flyer ii bottom propellor wont rotate. any help on how to fix

Ya, I've got that problem too. I note that the bottom rotor spins without turning the gear inside the copter (I can hear the gear when I turn the top rotor. So I'm thinking that maybe the rotors plastic sleeve was glued to the shaft and that came loose. But I'm a little hesitant to put glue in there until I'm sure!

One rotor spins faster than other, so chopter flies only forward

We are a family that bought one of your helicopters. We immediately had a problem, the top rotor stopped spinning after a crash. We found out that when the helicopter crashed I wasn't paying attention(I am 10 years old)and I was still pushing the throttle while it was on the top rotor. Big mistake,when I tried again it Didn't lift off the ground. We then put crazy glue in between the top rotor and the shaft and tried it again. It worked! Both rotors spun! Good luck!

The top rotor of my syma S107 is not working and the motor is making a different sound. What should I do?

This is a counter rotational craft and thus there should be two electric engines turning one rotor each. The top rotor is probably connected to the lover gear, and thus this is where you should start looking.

When you turn your top rotor, do any of the gears move? Try holding the gear while turning the rotor also, if the rotor is spin able while holding the gear then your rotor shaft is damaged and the entire rotor should be replaced if possible.

Also, try turning both rotors and see if one spins heavier than the other. This should
also indicate damage to the construction, or the engine.

If everything is looking all right, and all the gears turns all the way to the engine, and everything looks tight, then it is a great possibility your engine is fried.

Many of the sets have easily changeable rotors and rotor shafts, and some also have easily changeable gears. However, most cheap crafts like this do not have easily changeable engines. I do not know this model, so this you have to investigate. Now, it is possible to do engine shifts by yourself even if the manufacturer does not provide spare parts, but I

Heli wont go up very much and turns to the left

If thi is a Reflex with two opposing rotors and two directional fans then use the "trim wheel" on the top of the rotor assembly to counteract the spin. If you crashed it often enough the shaft for the top rotor may have come loose. I'm not sure how this actually works with the trim wheel but mine crashed a bit and the shaft came out. I re-inserted it and it worked OK for a while but eventually the gear inside stoppped grabbing the shaft and the top rotor would not spin. I took it apart and tried gluing the gear to the shaft and that got the rotor to spin at the same rate as the lower rotor but I could not trim to get rid of the spin on the body. I would advise not buying the Reflex becuse it does not hold up very well. I went out and purchased a Sharpshooter which is easier to fly and seems more durable
