This would be my 4th battery flight but having problems. I had a minor crash on third time a fall from maybe 2ft. after that it would not lift off so i figured it was batteries. Now that I have charged battery it still will not lift off. Have I broke something and dont know or is it a setting? This sucks sooo much not havning a hobby store within 100 miles!! uGH Is it even possible to learn by net alone?! Geeze! Sorry to bother everyone again orange4

By the way the motor spins up and it seams to rev up pretty high.. if i slam to wide open it wil jump off ground and thats all. Figure that cant be god so just put away. Also can my main blades be damaged??? can that have to do with the lift??

What kind of heli do you have? If it's a FP, check the tracking. That what happen with my bee. I have the same problem for weeks, until I found that the problem is with the blade tracking.

I have a honey bee. How do I go about that?? I looked down and can tell they were not perfect. I then got them were I thought they were pretty close. But my "japanese" manual doesnt do much for help. Do I really just bend them with my hand??? Is there a video on this?! If it was blades would I be able to tell???

Ok just checked again and they are pretty much perfect. As in I look down them while throttled up and I only see "one" blade. Could it be something else???

I don't know what you mean by looking down on the blades to check the tracking. You need to be looking at the blades from the side to check the tracking. Also, make sure the flybar paddles are level. This will affect lift a lot.

Look at this and view all of these videos. I know you will find your answer here, and you will learn a lot about your heli. Don't worry, short of running over it with an 18 wheeler, there isn't much you can do to an HBFP that cant be fixed in 30 minutes or less and for just a few bucks. That is one reason I love mine so much.

Well wanted to thank everyone for the help!! I was in tracking. Once that was fixed it lifts great. But Now I broke or more lost a "ring -like push rod" off the piotch controll. So waiting on parts!! But did my first hover! Im stoked! orange74

The tracking screwed me up at first too. Same thing. Almost right away I put on the Xtreme carbon reinforced blades (bought from Boomtown Hobbies) and I think the flight is better with those than the stock blades. Mind you I'm a beginner who may not know exactly what they're talking about, but I'm pretty sure I got better lift with those and haven't had as many tracking issues. Haven't broken a blade either and I've had a lot of blade contact with my cement garage wall etc.
