How To Fix Your RC Helicopter




What do you think about this video?

Marc Shakter: Shame there isn't a fix for the one my gf just got me... Brand new out of the box you can't trim it to fly straight, no forward/reverse control. People in the hobby NEED TO WARN PEOPLE about buying some brands of cheaper helicopters... If it says 2 channel DON'T BUY IT.. If it's made by a "company" that packages it so you don't know who makes it, or have to read fine print to figure it out... DON'T BUY IT. I'd rather spend 5 or 10 more on a Syma that works over Aeromaxx and other crap brands that don't...

fadi nahas: I nearly bought 3 rc heli helic cube and spy cam and the silverlet hover all go broken from the main blades but rc is my hobby but i dont what to do now if i just tape them they would be unbalanced and unstable so what are ur suggest to me to what to do and thanks 

Ray Gamerz: I have MODEL KING RC helicopter.. It crashes a lot, but one crash makes it looses the control, can u add my fb and chat, and see why is it like that...

Thepicblast: Hello! I have a problem with my RC heli. Yesterday I bought a Silverlit sky eye heli. When I first got it, I charged it up. After charging I flew it and it worked perfectly. Later when it finished charging again, the helicopter didn't turn on. Doesn't respond to the control. The charging light is off meaning the battery is charged. Any ideas? Thanks!

Cyronx1: I need some help, I have a Protocol Heli-Raider and it's top rotor isn't spinning but the bottom one is, the first time this happened I just pushed down a bit on the shaft, but this time it's not working at all, the gear is fine, but I think something with the motor is messing it up.

pysmon1: Hey i have an Avator Z008 Channel RC helicopter and it started doing the Funky flying at the start of the Video, i then read up some stuff and mistakenly glued the two gears together, first of all where do i get that white gear that is universal with the helicopters, and also should i unglue the helicopter gears? thank you.

LTzombieMonkey: My helicopter has a similar issue to the one in the video, but it actually stops turning and is fairly hard to push, im not sure if the fix is similar to yours, if it is, do you know where i could get some of these little gears, i can only find the larger main gears

Johnny Kassis: ok so i have a skyforce helicopter that has an omni directional flight quality and ive had this since last christmas and it was fine. i found it and its controller so i charged it up with fresh batteries but the heli wont even light up! i tried charging again but still no use i tried taking it apart to see the problem but i dont know whats going on. help?

Jeremy Parker: From experience (little) I've had similar issues. Mine ended up being the gears on the actual rotor motors coming loose. Meaning the shaft would just freespin and barely drive the gears. You can attach with epoxy/superglue or replace if u can get them.Thought I'd share after spending hours fixing these cheap things.lol

WrestlingUnplugged: Would this same problem cause the bottom blade not to spin.....

Jon D.: This did not help at all

TheAwesomeCookieDude: I have a dh 9100 and when i put the power up the blades spin 1 or 2 times and then stop. Can any1 tell me what the problem is?

Randy Gokool: That's the blades are slightly damaged due that cost that

Alison Cook: I have a tian yi xing 3.5 rc helicopter and the two bottom propellors aren't spinning ( gyro copter)

Andrew denny: i have a problem with aeroquest gold edition when i turn it on the light are on but the rotor won't spin :( can someone help me

jazzyla9: I have the a Hercules so called: 3.5 channel Gyro Unbreakable helicopter. This is my second one. The transmitter was bad on the first on. The new one ( that I have had about two weeks) lights went out after I landed it. Yes, the battery was fully charged. I noticed that the lights would come on after I touched the red and black wire that you plug in to the body of the copter. But now, it want come on at all. Anybody have a clue how to fix that short? I think that is all that it could be? Thanks in advance. 

jazzyla9: Thanks for the info. I'm done with the Hercules copter. I sent it back. 

Ateeq Ahmed: i have exaclty the same problem as shown on this video! but where can i find that gear! to fix it! :( 

Eduardo Chavez: The two pins on the charger port aren't working they won't charge

Irteza Ali: How much people are having this problem? I have its solution which is most easiest.. 

Dage RCGamer: Doesn't work For Aeroquest Gold Edition ones cuz yea

Croco Bot: what helicopter is that

Irteza Ali: I have its solution.. you can fix it without opening it..

El Mahdi Ettaleb: Here's my problem: I have bought a RC 2CH (no tail rotor) Helicopter called "Minicopter" (pretty small one", After a day experiencing it, I crashed it to a wall, , It flought normaly after that, A hour later, I come back to my chopper, and when I try to make it ascend into the air, it anormally spin on itself counterclockwise. I tried replacing all the wings and tried what this video says. but no resistance was encountered. The gyro works well, the controls too, the left/right stabilizers aren't really efficient, and when I hold the rotor in my hands, the copper spin extremly fast on itself

Ziad Hatem: I crash it in the walls. I have a raider helicopter 4 channel what is the piece

David Shaw: Avatar gun ship fully charged lights blink I'm very familiar with the channels problem, charging issues, gear and motor issues but it will not fly, blades don't turn even thogh lights are on. Any ideas?

Anthony Navarro: Perpellers just spin....why?

Quran Explorer: help please I fly my 3.5 channel helicopter it flys after I charged it it just spins

Henry Montoya: I have a Sky Trooper 3.5CH Land And Sky RC Helicopter and all it does is spin or take off to the side what is wrong :(

Anthony Navarro: Good video man. I had mine for only 3 days and it just sits on the ground and the perpe

BootiDaddy: Nothing close by that I am aware of unfortunately. Will have to look around online I think, try to measure gear or keep the heli as a spare...three options :)

Epicness 2248: My RC helicopter fly's up and down fine but when its in the air it starts spinning clockwise then I turn the helicopter around then it spins counter clockwise. why?

David Shaw: To clarify earlier comment the blade motors are not turning on even though lights work when switched on, again any ideas anyone? 

mursu mies: I've got this nikko yellow hornet I never crashed it... and it juust keeps spinnin just like one u got . Where can i possibly buy those parts?

YoungSlick509: i have an M5 3.5 channel heli, and idk if the problem is that it wont charge or that it doesnt turn on, can some one help me with this problem please.

carkadk: Hi My bottom rotor stopped working. Its a Udi U812 HummingBird. Advice please!! (Good vid, rated it thumbs up)

All Out Throttle: I bought a Propel RC Air Combat Helicopter and it has been awesome for the first 4 days but the bottom motor completely stopped working today. I pulled it apart and see nothing wrong with it. I can't imagine trying to replace this motor too many small parts and soldering.

Swagato Pradhan: my battery i not charging

BootiDaddy: I have had a look online and can't determine the size of cogs being sold. Its the M Bladez helicopter from Bladez Toyz

BootiDaddy: Thanks taoistflyer. It isn't that as the helicopter was fine for the last few years :D...I have figured it out though. Basically there are small gear cogs that are attached to each of the motors - the one which attaches to motor 'A' has fallen off and gotten lost somewhere. So, the motor spins the correct way but there is no gear to transfer the power to the rotors 'A'. Next question is, any ideas where I can get some small cogs from? After approaching the manufacterer, their delivery charge is.more than what the cogs are! Lol

BootiDaddy: Any reason why the coaxial blades would spin the same direction? - This is what seems to be causing mine to spin out of control and not even take off!

MrJiggsaww: i have the same problem with my avatar 4 channel z008 how do i fix it its metal frame what could possibly be wrong with it and can somone tell me what the size of the gear of my heli ?please

u0770408: My helicopter's Trim only twists right, and lots of force is needed for it to twist left so is there any way i can fix this. Thanks

TehEpicEvraXD: i just got my new helicopter today, and every time i turn it one, the lights turn on with it, and it wont let me fly it :'( its a Eipiditep 5 helicopter its pretty big

Basith Nawshard: my wing A won't work can someone tell me why

Jhon Wjas: Mine appears to do what yours does in the video. I can get it in the air, and I can trim it so that it will fly straight, but if I try to turn it or trim it in either direction it spins extremely fast. Happens when I turn left or right. I have yet to attempt a fix, I was just curious if that is the same problem.

R/C 101: check the gears and make sure they aren't sliding off each other on the lower rotor.

R/C 101: Hey Russ It sounds like you've tried some of the fixes I would suggest, tail motor, trim, pcb so it may be hard to say without actually trying it myself. It sounds like maybe their is more torque coming from the main rotors then the tail can handle, maybe a tuning issue or bad spinning part. The tail motor is only so strong, things like a bad bearing or a shaft that's rubbing on something or to much pitch in the rotors can overwhelm the tail motor. You may need to pull the whole thing apart.

rjtaler: I have a WW Toys V 912. It flew great, then started spinning counter clockwise. Replaced tail motor, didn't help. Just replaced PCB and it still spins. Please reply with any suggestions. Thanks..Russ

carson willett.: Where can I get I little gear for mo interceptor 052 like that one? Don't have a spare at my disposal

Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
