Blinking red means the Switchblade hasn't sync'd to the remote.

For almost all R/C you need to follow a specific sequence, whether its:

Remote on, vehicle on, (wiggle stick on remote).
Vehicle on, remote on, (wiggle stick)

There's usually an additional process for a vehicle that has built in gyros, etc.

Bought new air hog switchblade today charged it and fully and paired with controllers but it won't do anything. Is there anything I can try before returning to store ?

Use the guarantee. Local laws say a brand new machine out of the box actually should work? I take it you kept the receipt or check? Take it back to the shop.

Samsung sl605 wont turn on

A charging battery's light is red. If it turns green then it means it is fully charged. Since you had stored your battery for a while, try to charge it by using a battery charger to kickstart it. It should work. Whatever transpires let me know. thanks and rate this answer.

We have a Air Hogs Hawk Eye that will fully charge but will not fly or respond to the remote control. Thanks for your help.

We had a simular problem - my son's unit was also stuck in picture taken mode - After contacting Spin Master (1-800-622-8339) it would appear that this is a known issue and they will replace the defective unit for free with proof of purchase.
You could also try to fully drain the unit (by leaving it on) and then re-charging it - apparently this has worked for some people.

My Web RC - Heli I. IR - Web Wolf isn't starting up even after I charge it. The instructions are very vague. What am I doing wrong

Hi! My sister's son had the exact same problem and after a quick look over the instruction manual I was able to get it to work. I have tried all the different Airhogs and this webrc is truly a superior flying toy. You can actually control it and make it go wherever you want to after you learn how to use the trim knob. Here are my suggestions to fixing the charging issue:
- Make sure the helicopter is OFF, - the batteries are fully charged on the controller/charger - and that the charging cable is plugged in correctly. You will know when you plugged it in correctly because the little light on the controller will change from red to green or vice-versa (cant remember) - the light on the controller/charger will change colors again when the helicopter is fully charged. - I am also an electrical engineer so I recommend you wait 10-15 minutes after turning it off and the same after charging it for optimal battery performance and life.
Hope this helps.
Have a safe flight!
