When I plug the charger into my R/C Air Hogs pocket-copter, the red light stays on (without flashing) for a few minutes, then turns off. After which I have to put the switch into off position, then on again. Which is when the light comes back on. The remote works fine, although the helicopter doesn't even turn on when I put its switch into the on position. Please do help. Thanks!

Your copter might have already experienced some hard bumps or landings , so you might need to check your copter circuit and battery cables to make sure they are in good condition or check the battery itself.

Infrared RC Copters


Hi, everyone.
Ever since I saw the first advertisements on YouTube, some years ago, I wanted to acquire one of these little helis. When I finally acquired one, I had lots of fun until the little thing started to give me trouble.I own several of these mini-copters and have managed to maintan most of them in good working conditions for about 4 years now.
I would like to share some things that I have learned about RC Infrared Helis, specifically speaking, the airhogs RC helicopters.
First of all these little copters are not intended to be used outside home unless on a very calm day and on an area that has to be protected against sunlight, because sunrays interfere enormously with the IR beam with which the Infra-red light-emmiting controller communicates with the copter. I have found out that even while flying an air hogs copter indoors, when you get them close to a ray of sun shinning through a window, it suddenly drops to the ground.
Next, Most problems that I have encountered have to do with a combination of low battery power, plus trimming. In some of these copters, trimming can take a great deal of pulses before you can get them to fly right.
On the first models I would cut a cardboard fin and tape it to the front of the heli, below the nose and across form it, side to side to make it thrust forward.
Many times there were things like hairs or pieces of cobwebs attached to the axle of the back rotor, causing the heli to spin uncontrollably, even after trying to trimming it with the remote contol.
On other ocassions the copter wouldn't hold a charge even with fresh batteries on the controller. I learned that in time, the charger connector/plug may get dirty, so I usually spray the inner part of these connectors with a light coat of contact cleaner(available at any electronics store like Radio Shack) and then plug and unplug the connector a few times. This has worked fine with my older copters that have presented such problems.

Air Hog Pocket Copter won't charge


If this was the original charger for the air hog copter and it just started to fail in recharging , there must be a faulty part inside the charger that is causing the problem, staying red light during charging period and never turns to green or other color to show that it was charged is one problem but when it also shuts off after 30 seconds without charging definitely shows a faulty part or parts inside the charger. To check this out you can try another good charger which you can borrow from a friend to see if it would charge your copter or you can take it to the store where you bought the copter , they may be able to confirm the fault on your charger, if it can be fixed or needs a replacement.

Hi,
You bought a defective mini copter, the internal micro relay is malfunctioning and I hope you could bring it back where you bought it. Replace it with a new one and let them try to test flight it before you go home.

Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

WHy is air hog battery charger flashing red


I had a Storm Launcher battery that was unused for sometime and when I plugged it in to the charger, the light flashed red. I checked the voltage of the pack and it was down around 2.5V....from 7.4V. I figured the "smart charger" thought it had a dead or shorted cell and wouldn't kick in the charging circuit. I McGyver'd the two probes and alligator clips to connect the pack to a 9V. NiCad "dumb" charger. The light came on showing a charge and I left it for 5 mins. Unhooked it and checked the voltage. It was now 5 volts...supposed to be 7.4...but much better than 2.5. Plugged the pack into the AirHogs charger and the green light started flashing, indicating a charge. Later I got the double-flashing and 10 minutes after that FULL charge! Just needed a boost to start the smart charger.

Nothing happens


The charger connection is sensitive on the Reflex Pro. It isn't uncommon to plug in the charger, see the light flashing, then when setting it down a slight movement of the cable stops the charging (light will stop flashing). Try connecting the charger again (if you haven't already) and let it charge for about an hour. While getting a good charge can be frustrating, it is worth it for the 4 minutes of fun to follow :-\
