A friend bought a $30.00 cx type heli from Hong Kong, not sure of the brand. It is not Eflite or Blade. The control is through infrared not FM or 2.4. His wife was flying it when it came down fast the skids bounced off the floor, the heli went back up in the air then landed again. Now the throttle is not responsive. If he holds the heli IR receiver right next to the radio IR transmitter it will respond with the throttle but move it away a little bit and it shuts off. Basically it lost any sort of range that it had. The heli has flashing LED's on it, those stay flashing even when the throttle does not respond. They only stop flashing when the battery gets low or power is turned off.

He replaced the batteries in the tx
Took apart enough to check for loose/broken wires, none found.
He drained then recharget the heli battery

Anyone know anything about IR signals?

lol.. The round "filing cabinet" that goes under your desk. Otherwise known as the "important file"

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.
