S33 RC Help

Hello All

i have a blue S33 that i was given for my son but the RC was broken
i have brought a replacement RC from symatoystore.com

i also got some spare batteries for the helicopter these i have now charged and put new AA batteries in the RC

the problem i have is the RC flashes Blue until i move the left stick all the way forward and back then it stops

the Helicopter PCB flashes with a little red light when i switch it on and then stops after a few seconds

yet when i try and do anything with the RC i got no response from the helicopter

i am somewhat confused surely i am not getting something wrong am i

switch on the RC
switch on the Helicopter
move the stick on the RC
both the lights on RC and Helicopter stop flashing

this should be it shouldnt it ?

it should then do something when i move a stick on the RC ?

I don't have one of these (or any Syma) but do have the rather uninformative manual, which says to turn on the heli first, then turn the radio on and move the throttle up then down.
Worth a try I suppose, as I've seen other helis that worked that way, particularly on the initial binding procedure.

You left out one step, after turning on the RC (transmitter)

According to Syma, these steps should be followed in order.

Step 1. Turn on the Transmitter.
Step 2. Move the left (throttle) stick all the way to the top, then move it all the way down to the lowest position.
Step 3. Move the right (pitch) stick all the way forward, then all the way back. Let the right stick return to neutral.
Now when you move the Left (throttle) stick up, the heli should start turning the rotor blades.

Make sure that you have fresh batteries in the Transmitter and that the heli battery is fully charged.

I have two of these S33 Syma heli's and they are slow to bind, so be patient, as it takes it a few seconds to initialize, after completing the third step.
