Hi; im J-Bug and I just bought a kestrel500. I cant seem to get it to fly, it just goes in circles. I bought it from hobbytownUSA, in Tenn. I thought I would upgrade from flying all my (airhogs) I have 10 different ones. But when I got this thing I cant seem to get it to do nothing, can someone help me or tell me if I can replace it and get another one?

They should be ready to fly right out of the box, but it could be the trim is wrong, or the battery isn't charged. Could also be one of the motors is damaged - the coaxials depend on both rotors turning at the same speed in order to prevent it from spinning. Try charging the batteries, and see if you can stabilize it with rudder trim, and if not, take it back to the hobby store and see if they can help you with it. Make sure you understand what all the controls and the trim is supposed to do - it's possible you're adjusting the wrong thing, or adjusting it the wrong way and making the problem worse.

Take it back to HobbyTown and ask them to give it a try.
