Help!
S108G no throttle control

Hiya, New to forum and RC in general but I had delivered today a Syma S108G but just the lightest touch of the throttle cause the helicopter to go into full throttle which just sends it soaring into the ceiling. It's either no throttle or full.

Amazon has offered to replace but I wondered if it's a known issue with an easy fix first?

Also, this one has the spring loaded throttle unlike my S107G and I can definitely say I prefer the springless version.

That's going to be an electronic fault and those are seldom straightforward. Let Amazon replace it.

Sounds like good advice to me, thanks

New one being delivered tomorrow. Gotta love Amazon's customer service...

Yeh, no wonder they are so successful, take all the worry out of mail order when things go wrong.

New one is fine

It was the TX as both helis operate fine with this new one.

Just got to take that damn spring out now.
