Not flying at all. Just spinning

First I bought the hawk 2 and it just did blinking lights and wouldn't fly. I took it back to best buy and got the protocol tracer jet. Now this one just spins counter clockwise and Never lifts off the ground. It's charged and I've tried trimming but still spins in circles.

Better not try to fix it, just return it and exchanged.

Spinning like that often means that one or other of the rotors is not connected properly to its motor. It could be something as simple as a loose grub screw where the gear wheel drives the main shaft, or it could be the pinion on the motor that's slipping.

As Timewerx has suggested, since it's happening from new, you'd be best to return it and get them to fix it or refund you. Otherwise you might damage something, and then it would be your fault.
