It would seem the battery forgets what it is meant to do.

I did that too and let it sit for a few months ... when I tried flying it again ... no lift ... so it's just a matter of a short time before it will lose its lift.

my 111 did this too. I took the cowards way out and brought another one. I do like the realistic body on them even if they do fly slowly,

The thing is ... they have not been damage ... they were all flying fine ... then they sat for a few months ... now they won't fly ... or don't have any lift.  Thanks for posting though.

Change the balance bar and rotor blades. Mine had some minor damage on the leading edges from hitting objects when crash landing.

What I could not see was the damage to the balance bar. I took the body apart and checked the gears. I drained the battery and fully charged it but no lift. After replacing the rotor blades I got a little more power. Replacing the balance bar gave me full lift.

Good thing I had a spare set of parts and i will be buying a few more!

Ah no no ... you misunderstood ... when I referred to "batteries" I meant in each heli ... I don't have two together.  I checked each one in each heli to see if they were good and they were ... but my girls still won't fly.  I don't know why some people are so down on the 3 channel ... sure they can't maneuver like a 4 channel, but they are still fun to fly.  I would like to get them air borne again if I can.

spirittoo,

1) Don't use superglue.

2) it will never fly with two batteries.

3) Every helicopter I've ever owned has torque and vibration issues.

4) This is a GENERAL application for these and the R/C fueled helicopters - Loctite - specifically the BLUE label variety. Applied to shafts with gears, pinions, spurs, and their set screws.

I've never had this fail. BTW - The BLUE variety comes apart with normal tools, and NO excess force.

Regards, Bob, Robert, or Sarge.  Anyone whom "maybe" an amateur radio operator, then I add N0DGN

Thank you ... I do like my collections ... people on the RC heli forum ask me why do I still fly the 3 ch. when I have 4 ch. heli  ... I tell them because I like them .... Now if I can just get them to fly again.  I tried changing the battery with the replacements I have but the results are the same.  I have a multimeter and I'm getting good readings from the batteries.  If anyone has any ideas what has knocked out my entire fleets of mini syma's please post.

 

Happy Holidays to one and all!!!

Sprittoo, Time for a battery change!

   Yes I am experiencing the same. Most of my little ones will fly for

about 30 seconds or won't lift off at all. I replaced the battery in my two oldest

107s and they are fine now. Judging from how long you have been on this site,

I am thinking we have the same problem, they are just plain worn out. There is 

a thread on here about the battery life cycle and someone said they are good for

only so long. Remember we only paid less than US$ 20 or 30 for these little guys

so I have no issues with the battery going bad. Also please read the sections on

the "Frequent S107 Problems and How to Fix" on here to prolong your battery life.

  As far as replacing the battery on the S111 goes, good luck! It's the same battery

but taking the S111 apart is a nightmare! I ended up buying a new one and keeping

the old one for parts! (To this day, the S111 remains my favorite!)

  For your larger helis flying backwards, I don't have an answer there, perhaps

other members of the Forum can chime in here! 

  Good luck and keep us posted!

BTW, nice collection!

Hilly Ho and Happy Holiday this year of 2014 ... Well sir ... each and every one of my mini syma helis will no longer fly after sitting for a few months.  Has anyone nipped this lack of lift problem in the bud??  Also the S023 keeps flying in reverse no matter what the adjustment on the control ... same with my S033 as well what's up with this anyone?

Hilly Ho! Happy New Year!!!

 

Well sir I'm confused.  Which of the posts on how to repair the S107G when it loses it height and just sinks to the ground.  My 107S is doing the same thing my S111G is doing.  Hopefully the solution for the 107 will help me with the 111.  Thanks.

Thanks for the input ... so you think it could be the motor?  Can you check it with a multimeter or do you just have to replace it and see what happens? It there a thread or notes that can give me an idea what parts are the same?  Was there something in the videos I overlooked?
