Airship control questions.

I just bought my son an rc airship and we can't figure out wh it won't lift off the ground. It just flips on it's side instead of going up. He's flown a lot of helicopters so he usually knows what he's doing. He's really frustrated and I have no ideas of how to fix it. Any ideas?

Brand, size, pic, info, what is it? .... looking for clues here.. so yeah... no idea how to fix it either. Its really really tough to troubleshoot something when you/we don't know what it is, as the description "rc airship" really is an extremely broad description.. I'm thinking blimp-like.. but thats even a stretch.

As I always say in these cases.. the more info you give, the more help you'll get.

Good luck.

Some have ballast weight near each motor, one sides might be missing. Some put the weight in the gondola. Usually modeling clay, or similar in the gondola.
