Help!
Double Horse 9053 problem

Hi,

I'm new here. First of all sorry if I posted this question at the wrong place.

I got a 9053 as a gift without the manual. This is my first ever RC heli and I don't know anything about it.

The first time I on the heli and the remote control, it is working. But I did not fly it. I just turn it on and let the blade turn few rounds and kept it. Just after 2 days, when I wanted to fly it, it is not working already.

The remote control shows red light. I seems the heli get no signal from the control. The light in the circuit board in the heli is also red, and it is blinking. Anyone knows what is happening?

Kindly advise. Thank you.

Your batteries probably need charging or replacing.

Make sure you don't charge it with the copter in the on position or it damages the board. I even unplug the plug on the side as well as in the off position.

I would suggest a voltmeter as a "must have" tool for any heli. The batteries chargers, chargers and motors on these cheap helis are always suspect.

double horse 9053

*red light flashing on helicopter indicates not enough power to fly'
*when charging green light flashes on charger & stops flashing when charged.
I too have a new 9053. The mods on UTUBE are interesting, some good tips and some sketchy ones.

The red LED is flashing but the charger is green. So I got to change the battery?

Sounds like the radio itself might have nearly dead batteries (sounds like it's not binding)

Both Battery & Charger supplied with 9053 are crap IMHO

7.4V 2200mAh battery are available via ebay & so is suitable charger

9053 brand new will not charge

I also got a 9053 for Christmas from my daughter. This unit will not charge long enough to run it up. Green light flashes for 5 to 10 minutes then goes out on the charger. I suspect the battery is junk? When I run the unit up it goes to about 1/2 throttle then the board (red) light flashes quickly which I believe is not enough power to run.
I am still unplugging and plugging in the battery when the green light goes off to see if it will take some type of a charge. I have about 8 heli's including a nitro but this would be fun to fly around the living room to annoy my wife.

It is too bad someone in the "States" doesn't build something as inexpensive as this.....maybe we could get warranty service. While I know parts are available it is the idea that something ""new"" should work properly and at least they should have somewhere locally to handle issues (with someone that speaks english).
