Question about Air Hogs Toys

1 Answer

I recently purchased an Airhogs Sharpshooter. I really like it ease of control. Lately, however, I have had problems charging the helicopter. I would plug it in and the red light would flash for a few minutes, then the red and green would flash together. Then it would shut off. I would then unplug the chopper and attempt to fly. It would fly to the ground and hover about an inch off the floor. I just put fresh batteries into the remote and it still does this. What can I do to correct this problem?

It sounds like you need a replacement battery for the actual Airhog, the charger is trying to charge the battery, but it is rejecting it. Please call Airhogs themselves to confirm, and if necessary they can get you out a replacement. Call them at 1-800-622-8339

Airhog bomber helicopter


Hi Nichole,
not 100% sure what you mean by short flights,
They are made for very short flights, I bought one of the INTERCEPTOR R/C witch is bigger than the Airhog and it
is only a 4-6 minutes of flight and even that is pushing it on top end of flight and then its requires a 30 to 60 minute charge, their kind of disapointing as far as Air time to charge time goes.

My sharpshooter and remote both turn on, but the helicopter does not react at all, what should i do?


I had this problem yesterday as well :)

My helicopter charged once worked and flew once for about 5 minutes. Then the helicopter stopped responding to the controller and it wouldn't take a charge. When I connected the remote to the helicopter the CHG light came on solid for about 30 seconds. This means that the controller is waiting to be plugged into the helicopter.

A couple of points to check before you go further:
1) make sure that the helicopter is turned OFF before charging!
2) When charging the red CHG light will blink.
3) When finished charging the red CHG light and the green Power light will blink at the same time.
4) After a certain amount of time both lights will stop blinking to save the batteries.

After taking the helicopter apart this is what I have found:
*The helicopter has a 140mA-H 3.7V Li-Po battery.
*The battery has a little board with 2 tiny computer chips. When the battery is empty these 2 chips will completely disconnect the battery. This prevents damaging the battery and this is why the helicopter stops responding when the battery is empty.
*There are two connections between the battery and the little board - a long connection which wraps one time around the battery and a short connection. My problem was with the short battery connection.

Solution --The little board has a short piece of foil which connects to another short piece of foil on the battery. These two pieces of foil are simply pressed together and then glued. In my case this connection broke. To fix the problem I removed the yellow tape and glue and used a soldering iron to solder the 2 foil pieces together. Make sure that you put tape (any household tape should be OK) back on the battery to prevent any shorts.
