Default Need help with heli!

I just became the owner of a Smart Tech Sky Lark heli but it is not in working condition. The batteries for the kyosho series 91 controller batteries don't work. I need a charger but am not sure which one. They are Sanyo 4.8v 600mAh battery packs. Also, I need a new tail rotor for this becuase the one on it is burned out. Thanks for the help!

Jacketsneezes,

Noting your first post and having no one reply in five days, I wish I could help.

Obviously I have no history of your RC hobby activities and do not know how you acquired your heli.
As you are asking in this forum I presume that you are on your own having no experienced friends in the hobby.

If there is a RC Hobby Store close enough it likely would be your best bet to get a new battery and a suitable charger. It might also be the best place to get a new tail rotor motor.

I realize you may have had the same thoughts but I cannot think of any better way of solving your difficulties.

Wishing you the best solution.

You need to identify whether your batteries are NICADs OR NIHMs. They both produce the same voltage but charge differently. Any decent charger can be setup to charge either.
Hope this helps.

Hopefully we will read Jacketsneezes soon on what he pursued.
