Hi,

The problem is with the signal.The controller needs to be removed apart and checked for the continuity testing where the battery signal drops.Use the voltmeter to find it exactly.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Usually synching requires one device started before the other, meaning that you may want to power on the transmitter, then turn on the heli and try the heli first, then the transmitter second if that doesn't work. Otherwise there's usually a small button that is pressed to get the two devices talking to each other.

1.Take out charging wires. 2.turn off your heli and insert charging socket into your heli's socket. 3.the charging green light will light up while charging. 4.charging complete, the green light will turn off. 5.pull out the wires and you are ready to fly. Let the heli's battery cool down for approx. 15 minutes before charging.

My helicopter will not hover!


If I understand what you're describing, the heli will fly properly at the start of each flight then becomes non-responsive and crashes. When you begin again, the same thing happens.

If that's correct, then it sounds to me like the heli is flying out of range of the transmitter. Check the batteries in the transmitter. If the batteries are ok, then check the distance to be sure you're staying within range. If you are within range, are you remembering to turn on the transmitter before connecting the heli battery? Did you properly bind the heli to the transmitter? Any other flyers in the area that could be causing interference? Power lines nearby?

Another thing, if it does fly out of range, and if your heli is properly trimmed, it should stop and hover. If it's not doing that, then check that your controls are in the proper position before connecting the battery.

Hope this helps.

The helicopter does not fully charge


You mention the controller, new batteries are good for the controller, but you need to have your heli batteries to be charging correctly. If you get new heli batteries, then Check your charger, it is probably not putting out the right voltage.

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.
