Question about Toys

Purchased Helicopter MINI AIR WOLF Model UJ417. from RiverCenter Mall vendor in San Antonio, Texas 3 days ago, while on in kansas.Hope i didn't get scammed. Vendor never said it would only fly 5minutes or less after charginhg..Anyway, got home to kansas. Installed 6 new AA Duracell batteries in controller. Instructions says turn off power of Helicopter then insert charging plug into socket on helicopter. I did that. Then instructions say controller light should be twinkling when charging ..BUT my controller only has constant steady yellow light after 2 hours. When pull plug out of helicopter then turn barely gets off ground for 5 seconds then flashing L.E.D. light on Helicopter goes out. Instructions say after charging 20-30minutes..helicopter should fly for 5-6minutes. disappointed since this is my first helicopter and was going to use it to get some practice before buying one of your big ones for outdoors.

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.

    i bought one at the mall min st louis and have the same taking mine back sunday and either get a refund or one that will fly....

    It turned out to be a problem with the controller not the copter. They gave me a new controller and it flies fine except keeping it from rotating with the trim control is a pain. I bought the Syma S107 copter from xheli dot com for $29.95 with free shipping. it has a gyro built into it and it flies stable as can be. It is really amazing. Even my wife flies it. The moral is don;t buy from the mall. they are way overpriced.

Hi...I bought a syma s018 rc mini helicopter a week ago and it was working great but now, when i fully charge it, it doesn't have enough power to lift off the ground. Is my battery defective? It seems to...

I believe the Syma S018 is the same as my Yiboo UJ417.
Mine never got off the ground out after charging for an hour.
It just skitters along the ground. Must be a bad battery. Returning it if I can.
