    The good news is you may be able to fix it, but you will need to discover what the problem is first.

    It would help to know what model you have, helicopters are complicated machines--even small ones.

    But anyway here is how to go about troubleshooting the problem-

    1 Start with the easy stuff first--check all of the linkages that connect to the swashplate. (the swashplate is the linkage is just below the main rotor} and look for any loose or broken connections.

    2 With the helicopters motor off, move the controls and check to see that they are not binding. They should move freely and not stick.

    3 Check your transmitter trim tabs they should all be centered before each flight.

    4 If you have a coaxial helicopter (2 main rotors) check to be sure that the tail rotor is working. On coaxial helicopters this controls forward and reverse flight. Rotating right and left is controlled by the main rotors.

    The solution could be as simple as reconnecting or tightening a connector, but if you do need a part you will need to locate a vendor that carries replacement parts.

    Anyway that should get you started in the right direction. Hope it helps.

    Good luck--Happy Holidays

    Cheers

    Maybe if you know the manufacturers name you can go to their website to see if they have a trouble shooting section on how to fix your problem.

    It's probably cheap as **** so no. Especially mall helicopters and airhogs.
