Santa brought me the Phantom S107 from World Tech Toys (looks like the Syma). I plug in the USB charger, Light in USB plug glows bright after some time (this is supposed to mean it is charged). I unplug choppet from charging. I turn on chopper and wait till green light stops flashng and see that the LED is flashing red and blue. OK so far looks good. I turn on the remote, it flashes green once then burns steady. then NOTHING. Chopper just sits there, flashing and looking cool. I also tried charging from the remote.. Still nothing.
Anything I should try before sending it back??
Not the heli- it's the remote, I think.
Try syncing it up by going full up twice, then a third time to get it rolling. I bought the same one, and I had issues with it not wanting to take off at first too.
You also have to toy with turning the heli on before after the remote- for some reason they don't like to fly unless you play with getting them on before or after the remote, but I don't remember which. (my phantom's tore down for a project I've been working on)
I think the combo of on before or on after is what's the issue- they're really pickey about that...
USB plug glowing bright.
Unplugged Charger from chopper.
Chopper turned on, then remote turned on with switch on remote set to "A" position. Nothing.
Repeated this for position "B" and "C". Nothing.
On to reversing the order.
Remote turned on (pos "A"), then power up Chopper.
Repeated with remote at Pos "B" and "C" then chopper on.
Non of this worked. Chopper sat there with LEDs flashing but NO blades spinning.
I will try again later, but for now it stays DEAD.
I still say it's needing to turn off the heli, try again. Turn off the remote, try again. You have to go power full up twice, also- not just power up.
Next, check the angle of the reciever to make sure it's not being blocked by the stabilizer bars (the diagonal ones) or the frame.
Then, crack open the remote as suggested, and look for loose wires or missing parts. (and etc)
If it doesn't work, buy annother at aldi's, try both with the new remote- one in A, one in B- and see if you can get them to work. If it still doesn't work, take it back and keep the other. If it does work, don't take them, back, cause you'll end up just going out to buy annother later on anyway.
My phantom takes easilly 3-4 tries sometime to get going, and I constantly have to swap on/off on the remote and the heli. Keep trying...
What ever happened to when you buy something and turn both on they work? All my other RC's work right away after both are powered up.
Just want to rule out something here. Being as there are NO user manual that gets into more detail. Anyone know what the A B C switch is for? I assume it is for channel select so more then one chopper can fly at a time. This adds to the power up, one before the other. Many combinations to try being as I do not know which channel the chopper uses. What a pain.
Thanks for everyones' help, Cliff
Correct most have either B-C The other does not move-yes they call it a 3 channel heli witch it is,but not best explained only two channels work on remote but give you 3 channels on heli
