Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wow- I don't know what more you could want in a micro-copter. The design and detail are impressive and the balance between performance and control (for us office-flyboys) is spot on! HIGHLY recommended - if you've ever been frustrated by one of these formerly impossible-to-fly gadgets give this a try; you will be amazed at the ease of operation.
Well, I've also had the same problem several others have had with these Syma helicopters; after only a few weeks of use it no longer will fly more than a few inches from the ground. I've taken away all but one durability star and overall it's now a 3 star. It was a blast while it was working- but I've barely used it!

Check your top main rotor there should be two pins that go into the rotor brackets these break and make it impossible to fly, but you can get a replacement for a couple dollars.

Sounds like bad battery charging habits to me. If you over charge the battery too often or if you don't let the battery cool down at least 15 minutes after use between charges, the battery won't last long. If the battery is no good then the copter won't fly high above the ground. If you purchase a new battery for about $5.00, that should solve the problem.

Any details on battery changing and general chopper maintenance would be appreciated verily, good sir! The instructions with these helios is virtually non-existent.
