Why doesn't my helicopter lift off the ground but the rotors spin?

Follow

Most of the time this is a battery issue. Either the battery has been over charged or the battery is defective.

    my helicopter did fly but won't right now. It just scoots along the ground. I replaced and charged the battery. Still no joy. I don't see any damaged or broken parts. I feel that some setting is off but don't really have a clue.

    I just opened mine up. It goes up 6 inches high and then shoots like a rocket in any direction but up. On my tenth charge I got it 3 ft high once and then it just cam straight back down. Help help help

    I believe that my problem was the result of the cold temps outside because the new battery acted the same. Steve I think you need to set the D/A knob and adjust the trim. Do so slowly and work in an area with lots of room.

    Above comments not adequately answered. My helicopter flew once. Helixopter landed. No damage. . Subsequently helicopter wouldn't ans won'r lift off the ground. Battery was recharged. Not overcharged. Features respond to remote commands, but helicopter won't lift. No phone coverage available. Since it's a Christmas gift bought a week or so ago, I'll try returning it to the store. Day after Christmas you should be available for support.

    My helicopter has worked great for quiet a while, but now the blades spin, they sound a bit noisy but the helicopter wont lift more than an inch and it keeps spinning around in circles very fast. Is this covered, and is there something I can do to fix it? Email me at salsgoldwing@hotmail.com

    Mine won't fly, lasted one day, and now it won't go off the ground. Chenaged the batteries, ran the drone, the props work but not flight.
    Total junk. Going to return it tomorrow.
