SOURCE: My helicopter won't take off,

This issue is the "Drive Gear Unit" It is the small gear just above the motors which is attached to the very large gear. You will have seen several posts indicating that sometimes this gear shifts and does not engage the larger gear. In my case I looked and say that it was indeed trying to engage the larger gear, however the gear is stripped (the teeth are nearly gone). The sound that you are hearing is the sound of the gear slipping against the Bigger gear. I have a UJ365 which is a newer model. To my disappointment I cannot find a "Drive Gear Unit" anywhere on line. The copter will not function without it. This issue is that it takes the lift of both rotors to lift the copter into the air. There are two motors (one for each rotor) and each motor has one of these drive gear units. Each of these attach to the larger gears which turn the rotors. The rotors each turn in the opposite direction. This is what keeps the copter from continually turning in one direction. When one of the "main Gear Units" becomes damaged it seems to have three noticeable effects. (1) There is a noise that is the gear grinding against the bigger gear. (2) Because many of the teeth are stripped the drive gear engages the bigger bear only some of the time, this causes the rotor to turn slower and in-turn causes there not to be enough lift from the rotors to lift the copter. And finally (3), someone noted that copter wants to spin in one direction. Understanding the above, you can now understand that if one of the rotors is not reaching its full potential to turn, it is also not reaching its full potential to counter act the other fully functioning rotor. Thus the fully functioning rotor is forcing the copter to spin in its direction and the malfunctioning rotor is not spinning fast enough to stop the spin.

So this is the answer to your questions, hopefully on the older models there will be parts available for you to replace it. The copter cannot work until the part is replaced.

Trimming is an adjustment used to get the helicopter to hover in place when you want it to hover in place (assuming no wind), not to adjust the gain (how fast it moves compared to control movement). If you don't have forward/back movement of the helicopter, there's a defect in there somewhere. If it's still under warranty, get it exchanged.

I just got the new s032g . i can't stabilize itand it's lookl ike no gyros installed. when it's come up it's start to move forward. any help? thanks, Erez


Make sure that when you turn it on, you place it on a stable and LEVEL surface until gyroscopes sync up and internal red light (not red/blue flasher in nose) stops blinking. This sets level heading for helicopter. If gyroscopes sync when craft is not level it will be trying to correct and will move forward or backward. If helicopter is level and blinking red light inside stops blinking after powering on and it still moves and wont hover. Then you have a defective board and I would return it to retailer and ask for replacement.

Hope this helps, let me know

I have 3 s107 and I it says 3 channel on the box and the transmitter says A B C but will only let me select 2 of them. What's the trick on flying 3 at the same time?


Mine's exactly the same as yours. Although the transmitter shows A B C the switch has only two positions, so there's a choice of two only. I doubt it's possible to fly 3 at the same time.

How do i fly my spin master air hog rc helicopter all it does is go in circles


If its a Reflex twin rotor Heli use the trim wheel on top to counteract the spin and at least stabilize the craft at hover. Then use the right/left froward backward fans to control flight, (right joystick on the controller). These fans are not very powerful so don't expect alot from them other than turning the craft right left and reverse. Seems there is too much down draft from the rotors to effectively move the Heli forward. Not a real good design. The Sharpshooter is easier to fly but uses the batteries in the controller as a charger so they don't last real long.
