Air Hogs Link - Getting Started

Where can I fly my helicopter using my Air Hogs Link?
Your helicopter is designed to be flown indoors only, so do not fly it outside! The room you are in should have lots of space to fly with no breakable objects.
Try to avoid direct sunlight or other IR (infrared) devices. The IR signal between the Link and the heli will not work well near sunlight so you may lose connection and crash. It’s also a really small helicopter - it doesn’t take much to knock the little guy off course! Turn off any ceiling fans and stay away from any other air vents.
Follow these tips and you will be an expert pilot in no time!
How do I install batteries in my Air Hogs Link?
You will need: (not included with your Air Hogs Link)
How far can my helicopter fly using the Air Hogs Link?
The signal is good for around 20-30 feet. This should be plenty of distance for most indoor areas you will be flying your helicopter!
Can I fly more than one helicopter at a time using my Air Hogs Link?
Depending on which helicopter you are using with your Air Hogs Link, you can fly up to 3 helicopters together at any one time; just make sure you have 3 helicopters in 3 separate frequencies – either A, B or C. The frequency will be printed on the front of the box in the lower right hand corner and on the underside of the helicopter.
Make sure that your app is set in the correct channel, too! Once you select your helicopter, you will get 6 small boxes on the right. The middle left-hand button says CH. Tap on that one to reflect your helicopter’s channel- A, B or C!
How long will my helicopter fly for using my Air Hogs Link?
The flight time for your helicopter will change depending on which helicopter you are using with your Air Hogs Link.
The flight time will also vary depending on where you’re flying it, the skill of the pilot and how much throttle you give the helicopter!
It will also depend on the brand of batteries you are using in the charger (if this is a helicopter that has a charger that requires batteries, such as the Heli Replay).
The helicopter I'm using with my Air Hogs Link keeps spinning. What do I do?
If your helicopter is spinning in circles, the first thing you’re going to want to do is check all your rotors to see if there is any hair or debris caught in that area. Even just one little piece of hair can make your helicopter spin out of control!
Carefully remove the tail rotor also with your rotor removal tool and take out anything which could get in the way of the tail rotor spinning.
Now try and fly your helicopter. If it’s still spinning, the next step would be to “trim” your helicopter.
See the little triangle buttons near your controls on your Air Hogs Link application? These will help you get your helicopter to stop spinning.
