Set Up and Operating Instructions<br />

Read the entire Important<br />

Safety Information<br />

section at the beginning of<br />

this manual including all text<br />

under subheadings therein<br />

before set up or use of<br />

this product.<br />

This <strong>Helicopter</strong> is intended for indoor<br />

use. Select a location, indoors,<br />

away from strong air currents,<br />

such as air conditioners, fans or<br />

open windows on windy days.<br />

Because this is an infrared unit,<br />

it needs a direct line of sight from<br />

the remote to the <strong>Helicopter</strong>.<br />

Do not operate in direct sun or strong<br />

lighting as this may affect the control<br />

system and interfere with operation.<br />

Do not cover the lens of the transmitter.<br />

There will be no signal between the<br />

<strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong> and the <strong>Helicopter</strong>.<br />

Flying area should be at least<br />

20 by 20 feet and 10 feet tall.<br />

Installing <strong>Remote</strong><br />

<strong>Control</strong> Batteries<br />

Before first use and when the<br />

batteries need to be changed,<br />

install six “AA” batteries.<br />

To install the batteries:<br />

1. Unthread and remove the screw<br />

holding the battery cover in place on<br />

the back of the <strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong>.<br />

2. Remove the battery cover and insert<br />

six “AA” batteries (sold separately),<br />

being careful to position the<br />

batteries in the proper polarity.<br />

3. Replace the battery cover and<br />

secure in place with the screw.<br />

Charging <strong>Helicopter</strong><br />

Batteries<br />

1. Turn the <strong>Helicopter</strong> Power Switch OFF.<br />

2. Connect power to the <strong>Helicopter</strong><br />

following the instructions<br />

in A or B below:<br />

a. Connect the Charging Wire<br />

from the <strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong> (with<br />

batteries installed) to the Charging<br />

Port of the <strong>Helicopter</strong>. Turn<br />

on the <strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong> Power<br />

Switch. During charging the<br />

<strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong> is orange.<br />

b. Connect the USB cable from<br />

a powered USB port to the<br />

Charging Port of the <strong>Helicopter</strong>.<br />

During charging the light on<br />

the USB cable will be off.<br />

3. Wait 30 to 40 minutes.<br />

4. When the helicopter is fully charged,<br />

the <strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong> light will<br />

change to red, or the USB cable<br />

light will turn on, depending on the<br />

charging method you are using.<br />

5. If charging with the USB cable,<br />

disconnect the USB cable and store in<br />

a safe place.<br />

If charging with the <strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong>,<br />

turn off the <strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong> and<br />

disconnect the Charging Wire<br />

from the <strong>Helicopter</strong>. Wind up the<br />

Charging Wire and store it in the<br />

compartment in the <strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong>.<br />

Getting Started<br />

1. Install the batteries in the<br />

The <strong>Remote</strong> <strong>Control</strong> light stays red<br />

when the <strong>Helicopter</strong> and <strong>Remote</strong><br />

<strong>Control</strong> are on the same frequency.<br />

Note: The <strong>Helicopter</strong> needs to be on<br />

a frequency that is different from<br />

other infrared objects near by. If the<br />

<strong>Helicopter</strong> is not operating properly, try<br />

changing the frequency. If you have<br />

more than one <strong>Helicopter</strong> operating in<br />

the same location, check that they are<br />

each on a different frequency. You will<br />

need to check and adjust the frequency<br />

every time the <strong>Helicopter</strong> is turned on.<br />
