Heli-Q Problems

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi guys,

Just got back from Australia and picked up a couple of fun looking (cheap) helis (<$30) for farting around. They looked fun, however I'm having trouble getting these things to even run. I gave them a try while over seas and was able to get it to run for a couple seconds before my batts ran dry (AA Alkaline). Didn't want to go out and spend mega bucks on batts in aussie (most stuff is crazy expensive there), so I packed her up for the trip home.

I was just wondering if anyone heard of these things or even has one? I've seen them everywhere is Australia, however information is hard to come by. I don't feel bad for dropping 30 bucks on some whim toy, however I think this little (and I mean little) heli is pretty neat and would love to get her up for giggles.

Here's the only site (japanese) where I can get info: http://www.rakuten.co.jp/e-eiko/570806/1815607/

Anyway, my problem is that the Tx is uber-cheap and will not work with any Alk batts I've tried (and I tried at least 36 of them). I'm currently charging up my AA NiCd's, however being away for home for the last month, I thought I'd give them a good slow load and slow charge to ease them back into commission.

Any ideas or pointers would be great.

You have what is called the Picco Z heli also know as Walmart brand.
You need 9 volts in the transmitter, thus Duracells are a good choice.
The switch on the heli must be turned to "off" for charging.
When I lift o0ff, I give full right rudder.

Good Luck
