Question about E-Flite Rc Helicopter Eflite Blade Mcx 2 Landing Skid Sets

Open Question

My E-Flite Blade McX2 no longer has the power to maintain altitude. I have tried swapping batteries with several fully charged ones, so it is not the battery. Could the motors have overheated? Could it be a problem with the 5 in 1?

Hi, the issue I am facing is that my remote is not able to connect to the helicopter. Earlier when I used to put the battery the light used to blink, now as soon as I switch on the remote it just does...


Helicopter should be powered off when charging. After fully charged (charging light as bright as it gets) and given 10 minutes to cool after charging, turn on helicopter first and place on level surface, this allows gyroscopes to sync up. Then, after making sure the main rotor control (left joystick) is all the way down, turn on controller, and quickly push left joystick all the way up (just until the blades move) and back down. This will link them. Also, make sure the antenna is still wrapped around the landing strut and not contacting any metal on the craft. And of course, good batteries in the remote, and ALWAYS let helicopter battery cool for 10 minutes after charging AND after flying. Also, NEVER fully drain battery, as soon as you cannot maintain altitude, land and power off. Fully discharging a Li/Po battery will weaken it severely, and sometimes kill it.

Please let me know if this helps, I love Syma helicopters, but they can be tricky sometimes...

New SKILSAW 5995 used once to cut 1/4 inch plywood, no problem. Several months pass and I went to cut a pine board, the blade touched the wood and stopped. I recharged the batteries and tried again, two...


Did you fully charge both batteries before using them the first time? If not then they may not be able to hold a charge. It sounds to me like the batteries are either dead or defective as obviously the saw now doesn't have the juice to cut the board. If it's still under warranty take it back and get a replacement. Also, how powerful are the batteries? Even an 18V saw will struggle sometimes cutting a 2x4, they just don't have that much power. The plywood is easier to cut obviously.

Just bought an S107G. I have brand new batteries in the controller, and the heli is fully charged. The light on this controller when turned on is solid red at all times (should be green right?) The...


Do the lights on the heli come on?

Normal start-up would be:
Turn helicopter on. Flashing light in nose should come on, as well as another blinking light (sometimes towards the rear, sometimes in the "cockpit" area) the helicopter MUST then be placed on a level stable surface until the 'other' light stops blinking, usually a couple/few seconds. This is the gyroscopes synching up and determining the "level" head orientation they will be maintaining. Then power the controller on. Making sure you're not covering the front of the controller with your hands, (the IR signals come out the front like a TV remote) push the throttle control (left joystick) up until the blades move. This what the horribly translated instructions mean by setting the helicopter and controller together.
Don't charge with the controller. It kills your controller's batteries, (which will last nearly forever if you don't use them as your heli's charger) and seems to make the birds act weird. Use the USB charger and a fully powered USB port (back of your desktop, not the front) and go by the light on the charger not an arbitrary time. Plug in charger NOT connected to heli. Look at the light. That is what the light will look like when unit is fully charged. Make sure heli is off. Plug into charger. Charge until light is fully on. If you unplug heli and the light gets brighter, it's not charged fully. A weak USB port (on a laptop or the front side data port on most desktops) may take several hours to achieve full charge. Always cool 10 mins after charging AND 10 mins after flying. Never drain fully, it will kill the Li/Po battery. Land and power off as soon as you can't maintain altitude.
If it is really charged, and you turn it on and nothing happens... no lights nothing. Then it's defective/toast. Return for refund.
These SYMA helis are awesome, and HANDS DOWN the best on the market... but they can be picky/tricky on how they are treated.

Please let me know if this helps.

I need a wiring diagram so i can figure out where the red wire goes. For some reason it's not connected to anything


That's the antenna and one end is soldered to the 5in1 board. The other end isn't attached to anything. It simply is wrapped around the frame to stay out of the way of the servos. That's how it comes from the factory.

My helicopter (SO32 Gyro) having previously worked perfectly now will only hover. I have tried recharging it but it makes no difference. I wonder if I have overcharged the battery and if it is possible to...


Batteries are available online (amazon and many others) and change easily with only small screwdriver. Overcharging is not the issue. Nearly impossible with PCB (overcharge prevention circuit) hard wired into battery AND in charger. Problem is likely UNDERcharging, overDIScharging, or improper battery care. Battery MUST be allowed to cool 10 minutes after flying. Charge until light on charger doesn't get any brighter when helicopter is unplugged... light comes on (dim at first) well before full charge. 10 minute cool-down after charge also a MUST. And, most important, when flying, as soon as you are unable to maintain altitude, land helicopter and power it off. Li/Po batteries should never be fully drained. Even one full discharge can cripple or ruin entirely your helicopter's battery.

hope this helps.. let me know,

How will be i identify it is fully charged battery i charged for 45 minites.But the battery will not be fully charged. please send me the solution for this problems


If using usb charger use usb port on back of desktop, not data port in front, also most laptops do not have fully powered usb ports due to battery consumption. The wall charger, or a usb charger plugged into a usb/ac adapter (like included with ipods and kindles or sold seperately) is your best bet for reliable charge.
Charging unit should have a light on it.
When charger is plugged into power source and not helicopter, the light will show you {#1} what it looks like when battery is fully charged. Typically this is steady on, and usually red. (sometimes green) When you connect helicopter to charger, the light will change (usually goes dark) to signify it is charging {#2}. When light comes on fully (or completely returns to #1) then charging is done. (Note: charging using a laptop usb or a front side data port usb can take several hours.) Watch the light on charging unit when you unplug helicopter, if it gets brighter, helicopter is not charged, plug it back in. Make sure to let battery cool for 10 minutes after every charge and 10 minutes after every flight, and never run battery all the way down. As soon as you can't maintain altitude, land and power off. Fully draining a Li/Po battery weakens it's ability to hold a charge and can ruin it.
If all else fails, replacement batteries are available from Amazon and many others, they are cheap (around 5$) and very easy to install with no soldering and just a small screwdriver.
Hope this helps

You're likely doing one of two (or three) things:

Undercharging. Make sure to charge until light on charging unit is fully bright. If the light on the charger gets ANY brighter when you unplug the helicopter, then it's not fully charged. Note that if you are using a usb charger, that most laptop usb ports and front side desktop data ports are not fully powered to the required 5volts DC, and so can take several hours to fully charge the battery.

Over-discharging. Once you cannot maintain altitude, land helicopter and power it off. Draining a Li/Po battery fully, or even close to it, will weaken it's ability to hold a charge, and can ruin it entirely. Not like the old Ni/Cad rechargeable batteries.
Improper care. Batteries should be allowed to cool for 10 minutes after every flight, and 10 minutes after every charge. Like over-discharging, overheating will always weaken, and can destroy your Li/Po battery.

hope this helps let me know

1) Ensure you're fully charging. Indicator light on charging unit should NOT get brighter at all when you unplug the helicopter. If it does, then plug helicopter back into charger until light stays the same when you unplug. Note: If you're charging with a usb charger and are using a laptop or the front side data port on your desktop, these may take several hours to fully charge as they are usb 2.0 and do not carry the full 5 volt dc charge. Use powered usb (3.0) on back of desktop, or get a usb/ac adapter. Normal charge time approximately 1 hour. Go by the light, though.
2) Don't run them dead. As soon as you can no longer maintain altitude, land and turn off helicopter. Fully discharging a Li/Po battery (particularly when it's new) will cripple it's ability to hold a charge, and can ruin them.

hope this helps
