Controler wont control the copter the blue light is blinking on the helicopter and the red ligher on the controler is blinking aso. This happend after a crash

Make and model would help a lot here, but many of the controllers on the small remote control helicopters need to be reset after a crash disconnects the link. You do this by turning both the helicopter and the controller off, then turn the 'copter on first and the controller second. When the lights on the 'copter indicate a connection, take the power control lever on the controller and push it first all the way up, and then all the way down. This resets the controller and should enable the link again.
Good luck!

After a minimal crash the bottom blade is not spinning , but the whole copter is trying to spin.

probably you bent a piece near the shaft and it is stopping the prop from spinning but since the motor is still spinning it still tries to spin the other side of the shaft(the copter)

After 3 weeks of perfect flight behavior, my S107 started rocking or pitching back and forth after a crash. The next time I flew it, it was worse, doing a circular "going down the drain" motion....

Sometimes "toilet bowl effect" or TBE can be caused by a crash.
Try this: Gently, but firmly, press (or pull?) the drive shaft down towards the body, where it comes out of the 'copter, and where it comes out of the bottom rotor and attaches to the top rotor. Also, check for any thing wrapped around the shaft. Even a single long hair or thin thread can wrap dozens of times around the shaft and impede its functionality. Balance bar blade strikes are fairly normal in crashes or out of control flying (i.e. heavy throttle trying to pull out of a drop) and not to be very concerned with, they will decrease as you become an even better pilot.
You say "now, after liftoff it just banks sharply and crashes" does it spin? Or maintain heading and just bank? TBE will often get worse, but can usually be fixed.

Charging/Battery care?
Fly. As soon as you can't keep altitude, land and turn helicopter power off. Do not drain battery fully, ever. Cool for 10 mins. Charge until light on USB charger doesn't get brighter when you unplug heli. Cool for 10 mins again. Rinse and repeat.

Please let me know if none of these solves your issue, and I'll consult my repair notes and pick a few brains, we'll figure this one out for ya!

One rotor spins faster than other, so chopter flies only forward

We are a family that bought one of your helicopters. We immediately had a problem, the top rotor stopped spinning after a crash. We found out that when the helicopter crashed I wasn't paying attention(I am 10 years old)and I was still pushing the throttle while it was on the top rotor. Big mistake,when I tried again it Didn't lift off the ground. We then put crazy glue in between the top rotor and the shaft and tried it again. It worked! Both rotors spun! Good luck!

I crashed my Apache onto a table and when I try to fly it, It keeps spinning out of control. To my knowledge I don't see anything broken. It spins to the right. Please help! thanks!!!

It sounds like your tail rotor is acting up or missing. It keeps your Helicopter from flying in circles.

Air hog havoc goes up and down just fine, no steering control

The steering control only makes the copter rotate.

But if the heli is properly balanced a right turn should get you some forward motion. A left turn should just make it spin back to the left.

Adding weight to the front of the copter will give it continuous forward motion. Then you will lose the ability to hover.

If you visit the Air Hogs website (, select "need help" and then Havoc Heli, then crash course, the video will show you how it works.

I also find that climbing makes the heli spin left and descending makes it spin right. So full right for initial startup, then a little right when climbing, and a little left when descending helps to smooth things out.

Keep in mind that this is a very small and cheap helicopter. It took me a while to get used to flying in circles to the right but with practice I have been able to get it to go somewhat where I want it to. I can take off and land from the coffee table without crashing.

My helicopter won't fly, it just spins around.

The top rotar blades are not turning but are slipping every now and then.
