Charging Havoc Heli.

Hey everyone well I'm kind of new to the whole RC helicopters, I usually mess with Nikko RC cars but anyways, I bought a Air hogs Havoc Heli, and It works fine but when I put it on charge the green charge light goes on for about 12 seconds, then it shuts off it should stay on for 20-30minutes, and after the 12 seconds it doesn't charge unless you wait 1 minute then put it on charge for another 12 seconds and repeat. I have 6 Duracell's in the transmitter and thats where it charges from. Anyone have this problem? If so what do I do?

Have you tried changing the Tx batteries? I have an old Aero Ace, the single lipo cell is still kicking after 200 flights. Thats why I thinking your Tx batteries need changing as I believe 2 batteries are used for the charging, the other 4 are for Tx transmitting duties, unless the charger part of Tx is bad. You can post here for better info : http://www.rcgroups.com/micro-rtf-420/

Have you recently replaced the batteries in the transmitter? Those have always been the problem for me when the helicopter won't charge.

thanks

thanks guys, I figured it out, you need to put rechargeable batteries in the transmitter, then it charges fine. You cant have regular ones. :-(

Yes, you can. That's all I use in my "toy" transmitters including three PiccoZs.
