Remote Control Helicopter Maintenance

It's a simple fact of life: if you own a remote control helicopter, you ARE going to crash it. A lot, if you're a beginner. If you nosedive into the cats litter box, you're going to want to give it a clean, and depending on how spectacular the crash is you will need to repair it.  But, fear not - as almost all of our helicopters come with spare parts in case you shatter a blade, or take out your tail rotor.

Cleaning your Helicopter

If you do manage to land (or crash) in something a bit mucky, then a slightly damp cloth soaked in warm water is more than enough to get your RC Helicopter back in spit spot condition. You may need to lubricate the motor from time to time, and for this we recommend a light spray WD40.

Replacing Broken Blades and Tail Rotors

All you need for this is a small Phillips head screwdriver, and some replacement blades.

1. Locate the screw(s) holding the blade to the helicopter, and remove.

2. Remove the damaged blade, and discard, paying attention to how it was fastened to the helicopters rotor system.

3. Insert the new blade, and re-fix the screws using the Philips head screwdriver. It's important that the screws are tight enough to stop the blade from completely falling off, but not too tight that the blade is unable to move about.
