How to charge a Sky King Helicopter

Hi Folks, I am in need of some advice please.

I have just purchased a Sky King RC Helicopter, but I am a bit unsure how to charge it. The instructions that came with it are a bit odd to read as the translation from Chinese into English are slightly baffling. I am petty wary when it comes to electrical things, so I am sure you can appreciate I would rather get correct advice than to chance my arm so to speak.. I dont want to blow it before I at least get the chance to crash it!! lol..

I can't seem to find any clear instructions or video examples online..

Thanks in advance

How to charge it? With the limited information you have given you are limiting you're self to getting answers from owners of the same heli as you.

Is it a lipo or NIxx pack? Did you buy a kit the included a charger? I guess if you're asking.

Charging wont cut you're arm off. Working unsafely on you're powered heli mite...

Yes Rick, this is the model.. I have since found out why it wasn't charging. The power adaptor had blown when it was plugged into the house mains.

I ended up going to my local Chinese Take-away and he laughed and was able to translate for my the instructions and explained how and where they all plug into the Helicopter. Thankfully this was before my 15yr old nephew took the little Battery Balancer and attached it thinking it was the battery!! So all is now well and good. So the problem afterall was the power adaptor. Now to go an attempt flight!!

Thank you for the reply..
