Flying mini remote control helicopters is a popular hobby. It is important to maintain the helicopter in proper working condition to prevent it from crashing. It is best to inspect all the helicopter parts before flying to check if it was installed correctly and all parts are tightly attached to avoid the helicopter from falling apart.

Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Check the fuel if a strange noise is coming from the servo motor. Make sure all servo motor wires are properly attached. Check the servo motor sounds and hear if it is normal by turning on the engine. If the sounds are unusual, there might be internal problems with the motor.

  2. 2

    Ensure that the battery is charged fully if the transmitter is not properly sending signals to the helicopter. Tighten the antenna to make sure that its is properly connected and will not fall off.

  3. 3

    Check all helicopter parts to make sure all parts are tightly attached and balanced if the helicopter vibrates. Apply grease to all the bearings if needed.

Tips and warnings

  • If you experience problems while the helicopter is flying, always remember to slowly bring the mini RC helicopter down. Rushing the step can possible break the helicopter since it makes it harder to control. Avoid the temptation to still fly the helicopter if you are aware that the mini RC helicopter is not in perfect working condition.
